Today...

Posted 12-02-2005 at 11:58 AM by Horatio Caine
is so far not good!

1. Woke up from yesterday's match in pain. I have strained a muscle in my back and I seem to have also slightly hurt my ankle...

2. I have a match, followed by training, scheduled for tomorrow. Looks likely I will have to pull out.

3. ...I need to go food shopping and having to walk 1 mile home with my weight in food is not good...especially as I can barely walk! Also, I really cannot...

Mental strength of a goldfish...

...and I'm not talking about Verdasco here

Just lost yet another uni squash team match...after an almighty blow.

Trailed 4/8 in the first game after leading 4/0...fought back to a tiebreak, and in the style of my tennis idol, Tim Henman, lost the game after all my efforts to recover it.

Led 8/4 after some inspirational play in the 2nd game, only to see my opponent fight back to a tiebreak...which he won ...

For fans of Croatian tennis ;)

Sadly, Ancic isn't the only choker out there...there is little old me

Just lost a squash match having led 2/0 in games and having had a match point in the 4th game...I was whipped 9/1 in the deciding 5th game. :retard:

This comes only a couple of weeks after losing a match from leading 2/1 in games and having 3 match points in the 4th game, only to lose 9/2 in the 5th game decider. :retard:

My record in 5th games...

21st Birthday - ideas for an unforgettable night?

Posted 11-27-2005 at 11:35 AM by Horatio Caine
Well, my 21st birthday is on the horizon...and I'd like to celebrate it in style!

Any ideas? They can be as wacky as you like....but I would like to remember the night!!
Anybody willing to share memories of their 21st?


So far, my best idea, as recommended by a friend, is to do a tour of the 9 pubs in my home town...

Marathon!

Posted 11-26-2005 at 06:25 PM by Horatio Caine
Just showered after an epic win in squash...the full 45 minutes!

9/4 9/8 (2-1) 7/9 6/9 9/8 (2-0).

Was 0/8 down in the decider and my opponent served for the match 3 times...but the old saying goes, you are never beaten until the final ball.
