Allow Myself To Introduce...Myself

hello :wavey: I'm Mike and just spent the last 5 years living in luxurious San Quentin. (I really didn't know the gun was loaded :shrug: ) I've since relocated to Northern California where I can't even get a job at McDonalds. I've never played tennis but I used to play handball in the yard for about an hour a day. It's going to take me awhile to get readjusted to the normal life so I hope I don't come off kind of strange. Just wanted to pop in and say hi...so...hi :wavey:

Hi Mike :wavey: welcome to the forum...well I was just joking about the San Quentin thing...trying to be funny and I stress the TRYING part...anyway I'm 25 and I really am from Northern California and I did spend 5 years in the Marine Corp, which probably isn't much different than being in prison :D anyway, I've been into tennis for about a year and a half now, just started playing with my dad around the time Roddick one the '03 US Open. So anyway, I'm about to go play some tennis...I broke my racquet (Prince Shark MP) yesterday and I'm not picking up the new one (same racquet) until tomorrow so tonight I'll be using the Liquid Metal Instinct...Wish me luck!!

Thanks Kristen...and I really do have a job...I work at a relay center and type for deaf people all day, or stupid credit card fraud people that want 150 bottles of Centrum A to Zinc shipped to Nigeria :rolleyes:

:wavey: Hi Mike! You're a funny guy. :lol:

I've been a pro tennis junkie for a million years. :tennis:

I picked up racquetball again last month after a five year hiatus. I'm addicted to it! :D I hope you have as much fun playing tennis with your dad.

I'm glad your prison stretch is over. ;) Thank you for your service. :) HUA, indeed!

Have fun! :banana:

Hey thanks for the welcome guys. I live in Ripon right now which is about an hour or so south of Sacramento...about an hour and a half east from San Francisco. I was stationed in Yuma, Arizona with MALS-13 and Iwakuni, Japan with MALS-12 where I started to get into ping pong. I have been into raquetball since high school but I haven't played since probably '01 or '02. I'm pretty new to tennis and I don't even have a favorite player yet...please don't ban me :o and I've been to one match, which was the SAP semis this year between Roddick and Haas.
Well thanks again for the welcome and look forward to chatting with you all soon!!!!!

:D No that's my nickname because I was born in the backseat of a honda...j/k :D Yeah I belong to a couple car forums and I used to be real into the import scene and I'm pretty unoriginal so that is me...CivicLx..and on a side note I just got back from playing tennis for the second time today and I had my ass handed to me in a nonsexual way :crying2:

I hate losing. :devil:

Anyhow...again...welcome. I used to be a racquetball nut too...but you can't really do both. EVERYTHING is different. There it's all about low, lower...and kill shot. You won't believe how many balls I rolled into the net when I picked up tennis again ~3 years ago (after playing in high school many, many moons ago). It's been a slow climb back to break some racquetball habits. I don't get as many bruises though :lol:

Me, three! :haha: After I'd been drilling for an hour and a half, this guy who had been sitting around the elite court decided to give me a few games. He proceeded to run me without mercy getting almost every one of my returns back. It was a nice reality check! :lol:

The good news is that I've won a couple of games within this short time being back on court. I didn't expect that. I expect to lose a LOT because I'm playing as many different people as I can so I can get different looks.

AQ is right. Racquetball and tennis are really quite different. That's why I'm surprised when I learn about people who say they play both on a regular basis.
