Turn Pro Christopher Eubanks (Big Man)

Eubanks should go pro.

He played well against Fritz and Donaldson.   Fritz is a power player and Donaldson was a more solid version of Fritz and Donaldson had more training on the red clay so you can tell he plays with more margin of error.    In the end, Harrison was too strong and crafty for Eubanks.   Also, it was clear that Eubanks was not “on his game” against Harrison.    In his match against Fritz and Donaldson,  Eubanks played well by dominating with power tennis.   Big serving and big forehands.   He is 6 foot 8.   He should be able to crack more aces and hit more serves that are unreturnable.   if he has the desire then he should go Pro,  If Karlovic and Isner can do it then Eubanks can do it.      It was a great display by Eubanks and I think he could win more by “going for broke more often”    Attacking when his opponent is serving and going for aces in his game similar to Karlovic and Isner.   Also, Eubanks has a good one-handed backhand and a good slice.   He should continue to get up to the net.

I was happy with how Eubanks played and I hope he will keep playing more tournaments.  He has the game right now to be around the top 60 or top 70 of the ATP and he is going to have to “grind” to pull his game up to the top 30!   But Isner and Karlovic could do it.

Brazilian Tennis (Beatriz Haddad Maia)

She is on the rise!  Number 76 in the world Beatriz Haddad Maia.  One of the few high level female players from Brazil.   She is lefty.  She plays more of a counter-punching style based on being consistent.  It appears she has more of a skill-set for constructing points on the clay.

 

 

Haddad Maia does not possess any big powerful weapons but she can slice her lefty serve and she can MAKE BALLS!

 

Also, the Brazilian male player MONTIERO plays pretty well, he is a lefty and a good clay court grinder with a pretty clean game (very spin spin).

 

Hurray for tennis!   I hope that Beatriz Haddad Maia can keep winning and pull her ranking up into the top 50!!!

Noam Chomsky, best videos

These lectures are fantastic!   I once met a “conservative” man who said that Chomsky was a left-wing conspiracy theorist.   Some would say he is a liberal thought-leader.    Chomsky is definitely interested in the study of power and government and how the government affects the people.  I find his lectures to be really interesting and educational.

Education is a System of Indoctrination of the Young

American Tennis at Wimbledon 2017

Madison Brengle!  Alison Riske!  Jared Donaldson!

Madison Brengle knocks out Petra Kvitova.

Alison Riske defeats Mladenovic! (french player)

Jared Donaldson makes it past Lorenzi and must play Dominic Thiem!

You would think the USTA and American Press would be going nuts!   This is great tennis success for American youngsters!      But these players are not household names.     There is nothing fancy about Alison Riske, she is a baseliner with a counterpunching game.   Jared Donaldson is a grinder and a basher who plays rock solid because he honed his game in Buenos Aires (very smart).    Madison Brengle has a super ugly game.  I am exaggerating by writing that.   Her game does not look like Maria Sharapova at all.   You can tell that Brengle did get her strokes fine-tuned over and over again by Rick Macci and Robert Lansdorp and Nick Bolletieri.   For Brengle,  she is always changing the spins, she does not often have full follow-throughs.   She likes to use the forehand-chip ball to change the pace.     You can see she is often hitting her backhand very flat.   In my opinion, Brengle is the BRAD GILBERT of the Women’s game, she plays the game like chess and she forces her opponent to play worse and worse as they adjust to her style of play.   I’m a big Brengle fan!!!     But the USTA does not like her, they never give her any praise!!!   You could have a list of American players and they would skip over her.   The only way possible for Brengle to get some love from the USTA would be if she made it to the Semifinals of a grand slam and knocked out multiple seeds, they would be like “Damn, this girl is good at winning matches.”     Life is tough for Brengle, she has had to grind and grind and grind.   And she can not overwhelm her opponent with power.   Sometimes Brengle will surprise her opponents with a winner off either side but she will often wait for an error or try to make her opponent uncomfortable.

I hope these non-famous players can keep on winning!  I am happy for them because I know their rankings will go up!!!

Also, keep an eye on Osaka!  Naomi Osaka is a huge threat to Venus Williams!

Go American tennis!  And go unconventional tennis!

A Place on the Corner Elijah Anderson Excerpt From the Book

This book is interesting.  It is a sociological study of street life at “Jelly’s” which is a bar and liquor shop.    Anderson when he was a college student spent time with and observing the men of Jelly’s.   He broke them down into 3 groups: “The Regulars” “The Wineheads” and “The Hoodlums”

I recommend the book if you want to read someone trying to understand the life and psychology of men “of the street” as well as men who are in the “inner city” of America and who are men who are kind of on the fringe of society in a means of lower middle class to lower class.  There are also “hustlers” and some beggars.  The books is really really fascinating.

Here is just one example with an excerpt from the book:

Around Jelly’s, Oscar often expresses his desire for “big money.”  He is usually hatching some scheme to get “some quick money” with a friend from the corner.  Sometimes he will whisper to one person about his designs on another.  He might say, “Psst.  Hey, Eli.  Watch this.  Hey Sam, lemme hold a dollar till payday?”  If Sam, a friend of his, will “loan” Oscar the money, Oscar will then wink or hunch another person, to communicate how “smooth” and “slick” he is.  With money in his pocket already, Oscar feels he has “beat” the person making the loan.

Another except still in regards to “Oscar” :

Like other hoodlums around Jelly’s, Oscar lives and actively participates in what might be described as the subculture of violence of the ghetto streets.  He is commonly armed with his .38 caliber pistol, which he occasionally flashes.  He expects others to be “carryin’ somethin’ ” .     Frequently he may be seen standing with his hands dug into his pants pockets, as though he were ready to come “up with somethin’ ” at any moment should the need arise.  He says this posture will “make anybody think twice before they try to do somethin’ to you.”  He refers to his weapon as “my li’l equalizers that keep me alive” and that allow him to make his rounds.  Among group members he is known as someone who can “really go,” meaning he is considered a good street fighter and will not hesitate to fight.  Oscar has fought often and has threatened to cut people around Jelly’s.  Although I have never seen him do it, some say he has drawn his pistol on others around the corner more than once.

 

Those are just a couple of excerpts from the book.  It depicts men who are living their life socially by hanging out at the liquor store and bar.

This information came from the book which I had to special order from my local library.

French Open Update 2017 (Biscuit needs to get better)

Hello All,

Here is an update on this year’s French Open.  I had previously said that these women would make the Quarterfinals.

Angelique Kerber

Dominika Cibulkova

Simona Halep

Svetlana Kuznetsova

Carla Suarez Navarro

Lauren Davis

Daria Gavrilova

Laura Siegemund

 

Only 3 of them are still left in the tournament.  Kerber lost, Cibulkova was upset by Ons Jabeur of Tunisia, Davis was knocked out, Gavrilova lost, and Siegemund was out with injury.

Simona Halep

Svetlana Kuznetsova

Carla Suarez Navarro

These 3 are the players to watch.  Also, Ostapenko is very dangerous; CiCi Bellis I think will lose to Caroline Wozniacki.  Muguruza is a former champion.    Svitolina is talented.  And Pliskova is #2 in the world.

So now look for these 8 in the quarterfinals.

Simona Halep

Svetlana Kuznetsova

Carla Suarez Navarro

Ostapenko

Wozniacki

Muguruza

Svitolina

Pliskova (World #2)

(and here is one more contender: Timea Bacinsky)

 

The current women’s pro tour is extremely difficult to predict.  It appears to be very common that in grand slams the upsets just rain like hellfire.  Unknown players get HOT and rip winners; the seeds get cocky and can’t make their shots, and some players just mentally breakdown.  Just look at Ons Jabeur of Tunisia!  Nobody was expecting her to come through qualifying and then knock out Cibulkova.

 

Also, on the Men’s side: Tsonga was upset in the first round.   Nick Kyrgios was defeated by Kevin Anderson of South Africa.   Monfils will play Richard GasQUET (I am expecting Monfils to win that one, BUT Richard is extremely talented on the clay)

It looks like there is a high chance of NADAL and MURRAY and DJOKOVIC and WAWRINKA going deep in the tournament.

Update to French Open 2017 picks from the Biscuit

UPDATE

Hey! This is my early French Open Prediction (with an update). I’m doing the prediction based on my tennis knowledge and my keeping up with the tour so far this year (also, I can not predict if people will get injured and pull out right before the tournament).  Now I am adjusting for current news.

For the WTA this will be the 8 women in the quarterfinals:

Angelique Kerber

Dominika Cibulkova

Simona Halep

Svetlana Kuznetsova

Carla Suarez Navarro

Lauren Davis

Daria Gavrilova

Laura Siegemund

Kerber is a counter-puncher. Cibulkova is a grinder. Halep’s game is well suited for the clay (hopefully she doesn’t get knocked out by Shelby Rogers early on). Kuznetsova is a beast and knows how to win on clay. Navarro is a dirt-baller with a beautiful one-handed backhand. Lauren Davis is fast and a grinder, she plays great on the clay.  Gavrilova is a battler who loves the fight and will feed off the French Open crowd. Siegemund has been playing really well on the clay and she has a really nice game so I have faith that she can make it deep.

ATP French Open QuarterFinals:

Stan Wawrinka

Juan Martin Del Potro

Rafael Nadal

Dominic Thiem

David Goffin

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Gael Monfils

Nick Kyrgios

I’m expecting Murray and Djokovic to get knocked out. For some reason they are very beatable right now. Tsonga and Monfils have the French crowd to motivate them. Kyrgios is box-office and if his head is in the game then he can hit right through the clay no problem. Dominic Thiem is MONEY on the clay with his game. It is harder on the men’s side due to the depth of competition. There are some very tough clay court players like Zeballos or Ramos Vinolas or Carreno Busta or Pablo Cuevas and these guys can be VERY VERY dangerous. But those are my picks!

I hope my fans will comment or my haters will let me know how bad my picks are! I also challenge other people to make an early prediction!!!

Thank you to all my fans and viewers! Stay fluffy!

The Weight Loss Man (Guest Contribution)

I want to thank “DJ ROBO BRISKET or Whatever” for this Contribution to the blog page.  It is an interesting story and I hope my fans will find it to be entertaining.

(BEGIN STORY)

Don was the epitome of a man who was destined to be a professional eater but never put in the effort to get past the amateur stage. In fact, back in high school, Don was nominated by his friends to be “Most likely to be a top competitive eater” after witnessing him devour two whole pizzas and he still had room to finish off a bucket of fried chicken. That is just one highlight out of countless other feats of eating. Don never thought much about it. When Don was hungry he would eat.

Don worked at an accounting firm. It was an okay job. Don might go as far as saying it was a good job. The salary was competitive and he enjoyed his co-workers. The cube-farm lifestyle really appealed to Don since it gave him plenty of time to procrastinate during the day while chatting with co-workers.

One day at the accounting firm, there was a fitness ‘competition’ to raise awareness. Awareness of what, Don was not certain, but he played along anyway. Don had never considered himself to be an athlete, but he reckoned he could be competitive in most workplace competitions, except in running. Craig from two cubes over was known for running ultra-marathons.

Don was quickly proven incorrect.

During the push-up competition, Don was unable to complete a single push-up. During the jumping jack competition (which Don, as well as many others, were surprised is a thing), Don was quickly disqualified after his heavy bounces resulted in a smashed monitor from rattling off the desk. There were a few other events at which Don continued the trend of the first two events.

Don was rather disheartened after realizing he came in absolute last place. Of course, they didn’t announce the last place loser, they only announced the top three winners. But Don did the math, he was an accountant after all.

Coming in last place had upset Don, but there was a moment during the competition that made him realize it was time for a change. During the jumping jacks he noticed there were parts of his body that were jiggling while jumping that should not be jiggling on a man. Don determined to do something about his weight.
People made many assumptions about Don, but nobody ever assumed that he was dumb. In fact, he wasn’t dumb. Don was quite intelligent. Don was the type of person who researches everything, and as a result is good at researching things. Weight loss was no exception.

On Don’s fancy smartphone was an app for tracking his food intake. This app was called MyFoodDude. Along with tracking food intake, it would tell one how much they should be consuming. After reading countless reviews (significantly more than a normal person would’ve read through), Don had determined that MyFoodDude was the absolute best app for the job.

For two weeks, Don was extremely precise about all of his intake. He had temporarily given up all of his favorite foods, and instead had to carefully weigh all of his new and bland foods before eating. After those two weeks, Don had lost about five pounds. He was happy to see the results, but the accountant in him instantly extrapolated and saw how long he would have to be eating carefully.

Don had noticed it was obnoxiously easy to make a mistake when converting units within the app. When one switched from grams to lbs it would keep the value from the grams. If one wasn’t careful, they could easily add 200 lbs of a food when they had meant 200 grams. Don was always watching out for this since he wanted to be precise in his tracking.

After those two weeks, Don decided to celebrate with a day of no tracking foods and instead eating some pizza. It was Don’s favorite food after all, and he had lost five pounds, so it was justified to him.

Remarkably, when Don weighed himself the next morning he had not gained any weight. In fact, he had continued his weight loss trend and he was absolutely starving. Chicken and quinoa have their place, but when Don felt as though he was about to expire from starvation, there was always available loving embrace of fast food only minutes away. Don hopped in his car and sped to the nearest golden arches.

Don couldn’t decide if he wanted one BigMac or two, so he opted for three. It made sense to Don at the time, as he was indeed very hungry.

The next couple of days went by similarly. Don was getting alarmed at his rapid weight-loss and thought it might be something medical. Before jumping to conclusions, Don decided to use that app, MyFoodDude to make sure that he was eating enough. When Don first opened the app, it showed him a streak of missed days. Somewhere in the back of Don’s mind, he noticed that those missed days corresponded with his days of starvation. The thought never reached the conscious portion of Don’s mind, and disappeared into nothingness.

After tracking a full day of eating, Don felt content and healthy. Don was no longer fearing death by starvation. Perhaps he had not been eating enough the past few days, Don had theorized. The next few days involved lots of weighing and measuring of foods and liquids to ensure that another similar accident didn’t occur.

One day, Don had cooked 300 grams of shrimp. Shrimp is low in calories and high in protein, so it was a good, albeit expensive entree. While tracking this, Don forgot to switch from pounds to grams. As the save button was inattentively pressed, Don instantly died.

A few weeks and many similar obituary entries later, MyFoodDude was updated. In the patch notes was “Fixed erratic behavior.”

Lesser Known Pro Players (of Tennis)

On this post I want to highlight some pro players who are good or cool who are much less famous than the players who always win titles and such.  The Pro Tour is big and there are many players who are always battling to get inside the Top 100 and get fame/fortune.

CAGLA BUYUKAKCAY – is a Turkish tennis player.  Currently 157 in the world on the WTA circuit.  With a career high of 60 in the world.  In 2016, she won the Istanbul Cup defeating Danka Kovinic in the finals.

IPEK SOYLU – is another Turkish tennis player.  Currently 155 in the world.  She has had success on the ITF circuit and in 2014 she won the US Open Girls doubles.  Only 21 years old, so she still has time to make her WTA tour success.

SABINA SHARIPOVA – obviously her name is very similar to Maria’s.  She is an Uzbek tennis player.  She has won title on the ITF circuit.

JANG SU-JEONG – A south Korea player.  Age 22.  She has had ITF success.  Currently 125 in the world.

BEATRIZ HADDAD MAIA – A 20 year old player from Brazil.  Currently 108 in the world.  She has won 2 doubles titles on the WTA tour.  She appears to be “on the rise.”

 

Mens:

ALEXANDER BUBLIK – he is a lesser known “young gun” only 19 years old from Russia and playing for Kazakhstan.  He is talented and can win matches at the highest level.

MARIUS COPIL – Currently at a career high ranking of 90 in the world!  Romania.  One-handed backhand.

CASPER RUUD – 18 years old from Norway.  He is another ATP young gun.  He is currently a Yonex player.

 

The ATP and WTA is vast.  Usually the light is always shown on players who make it to the semifinals of tournaments.  I do my best to follow up and coming players to see if they are able to win just one match here and there and slowly pull the ranking up so they have the opportunity to actually play the real players.  Real players being top 100 tennis players.  On the ATP and the WTA, once you are top 100 then you are for real.  If you are a pro player who is consistently top 80 in the world then you are making a good living.  Sometimes, the lesser known players, in the course of one year they only have one or two notable wins.  It is a grind!

I hope my post can bring a little more light to some of the lesser known players on the tour.

Thank you!  DJ ROBO BISCUIT

The State of American Women’s Tennis (2017)

Serena Williams is the current World Number 1 and pregnant.  She is only number 1 by 100 ranking points so if Serena is out with pregnancy then expect Kerber to overtake her in the next month or two (once we hit French Open and Wimbledon).

Venus Williams is number 11 in the world.   36 years old and counting.  Venus is incredibly dangerous and has the ability to beat any player when she is playing well and attacking.

Madison Keys is number 13 in the world.  22 years old and a big time power player.  Possible Wimbledon threat but she is an obvious hard court specialist.

CoCo Vandeweghe is world number 20.  Power player with a big serve.  She can possibly overpower the other girls.  But can CoCo keep her head in the game?

Lauren Davis is world number 32.  Only 23 years old and she is more of a clay court specialist and a “grinder.”  Look for her to do well in the clay court season.  Davis is quick and her game is kind of similar to Cibulkova.

USUE ARCONADA is world number 248 and 18 years old.

Here is a list of players with rankings:

Riske is 40 in the world.

McHale is 47 in the world.

Rogers is 52 in the world.

Catherine Bellis is 55 in the world at age 18.

Lepchenko is 66 in the world.

Madison Brengle is 82 in the world.

Julia Boserup is 85 in the world.

Brady is 87 in the world.

King is 100 in the world.

Mattek-Sands ; Gibbs ; Chirico ; Townsend ; Vickery; Muhammed; Kayla Day ; Jamie Loeb;   Ahn; Falconi; Kenin; Sloane Stephens; and Anisimova are also pro players with rankings outside the top 100.

Also, Melanie Oudin is 277 in the world.

American women’s tennis is doing stronger than it was 2 or 3 years ago.   The younger players of Riske and Davis are performing better most likely due to experience and more intense training.  Sloane Stephens was marked as like the NEW SERENA but she has kind of fallen apart (I guess with injury), she is definitely not doing well currently.   Rogers is dangerous on the Clay due to her power tennis and she is very dangerous against the top players.   Serena and Venus can still play great tennis.  CoCo had a big run in Australia so we need to see if she can keep it going.    Catherine Bellis is for sure a talented player but also young and not experienced.  But, if Bellis can play well then she can do damage in any tournament (I was disappointed she lost that match to Flipkens earlier this year but I guess experience defeated Youth).

I like the game of Madison Brengle.  She has an “ugly game.”  It is not beautiful to watch her tennis but she is able to win points and her game is very no-nonsense.  I think Odin said “She makes you play bad.”   Brengle can slice and hit flat and hit topspin and she will change the pace on purpose to mess up her opponent.  Brengle does not get much love from the commentators but I think fans of tennis can appreciate the Brengle tennis game.

American Women’s tennis has some talent and there are many players who are outside the top 100 who are good players but we shall see how the ladies do in the clay court season.

When Wimbledon comes around look for Venus to do well and maybe Brengle.

When the hard court season comes back look for Riske and Davis to do well.  I think Asia Muhhammed could be a great player if she could be a little more solid.  Also, Kayla Day is on the rise as well.

Go American girls tennis!

The State of Asian Tennis (2017)

This is an analysis of Asian women’s tennis on the pro circuit.  It is taking into account their rankings and their prospects for success coming up.

In the present day, there are A LOT of skilled tennis players from China, Japan, and Tai-pei (Taiwan also).  It is hard to ignore their depth of talent.  Personally, when I was watching this year’s Australian Open I was impressed by the sheer number of players from Asia that were playing and winning.  Little known YingYing Duan made it to the third round and lost to Venus Williams (Venus destroyed her).  It really showed to me that China had arrived on the world stage of tennis.  Obviously, it kind of already did when you had Li Na winning a few years back but that was only one player.  Now there are multiple players.  Keep in mind they are not battling to win the tournament but they are in the tournament and making their presence known.

The Asian powerhouse is going to keep on coming.  Be on the lookout for them in the next 3 grand slams of this year.  The absolute biggest prospect is Naomi Osaka due to her power-tennis-big-time-winner-heavy game.  Osaka has a strong serve with a BIG forehand and a backhand that can also hit winners from anywhere.  When she is on she is very dangerous but it is hard to say if she has the mental toughness built up to finish off the Top 10 players.

It makes sense that Asia would eventually produce players due to the sheer size of their population.  It used to be that women’s tennis was dominated by Americans and Russians and Spaniards.  There has been a shift.  The women’s game is very diverse right now in terms of countries.  Sharapova has returned to the game so she is a dangerous player to keep in mind.  One thing to factor now to any major is that the Asian players are dangerous.   Case and point, Shuai Zhang, people were not expecting much from her and she just had a huge cinderella run in Australia.

Here are the players:

Shuai Zhang 31 in the world, China

Shuai Peng, 38 in the world, China (she plays two-hands on both sides)

Naomi Osaka, 19 years old, 47 in the world, Japan  (Best prospect for rising up into the top 20)

MISAKI DOI, 52 in the world, Lefty and good counter-puncher, Japan

Qiang Wang, 57 in the world, China

YingYing DUAN, 61 in the world, China

SaiSai Zheng, 67 in the world, China

Risa Ozaki, 72 in the world, China

Nao Hibino, 81 in the world, Japan

Kurumi Nara, 97 in the world, Japan

 

And the list goes on with players outside the top 100 as well.  ALSO, there are the CHAN SISTERS.  Team Chan/Chan is a VERY good doubles team.

That is 10 players in the top 100.  It is hard to say how big of an impact the Asian Tennis Force will have at the French Open.  The Asian players will most likely be much more dangerous at Wimbledon (Osaka) and at the US Open (look out for Osaka there as well).  Also, Side note, at Wimbledon be on the lookout for Pironkova from Bulgaria who is beautiful but also an extremely crafty grass court player.

Feel free to comment.  Me, personally, I am very interested to see how the Asian contingent will progress and if China/Japan/Taiwan/Thailand will continue to bring up professional tennis talent.

Thank you!

The Amateur Diaries Revisited

I wanted to knock that smirk off of his face.  His ugly face.  His face had the look of blissful ignorance.  What a fool!  He barely knew how to hit topspin!

Josh was playing once again in an epic battle against Patrick.  They were truly playing an epic match on the public courts of their city.  The other two courts were empty and there were some kids playing TeeBall two hundred yards east.

The two men walked to change sides.

“Well, my talent is on display yet again!”  Josh boasted.

“Yeah, Yeah.”  Said Patrick.

“Hey man.  It’s going to be tough to beat me.  I am really on fire today if I do say so myself.”  Josh swallowed some water and walked to his side of the court.

I will beat you.  This victory shall be mine.  I just need to run your chubby body!

Patrick could feel his determination rising.

Josh served the ball.  Patrick hit his return into the net.  FUDGE!

“Let’s go me!”  Josh yelled and fist pumped.

Ugh!  Bad sportsmanship.

There was a woman jogging who was well-endowed.  There was a noticeable “bounce” to her run.  Her ponytailed hair bounced side-to-side as she moved with her heavenly stride.

Oh no!

Patrick creamed his pants.  His inner thigh and crotch area became sticky and uncomfortable.

“I don’t know why but I can sense that my victory is assured!”  Yelled out Josh across the net.  He had not seen the jogging woman.

The Ambiguous Man (A man of many sides)

The man traveled into town.

He had a nice night and met a girl who was kind and smart.   The man wanted to go with the girl to his room.   She accepted his invitation.   She found the man to be a kind and gentle lover.

The next day came.  The man awoke from his slumber.  He had slept peacefully and was tired from his love-making.

He walked about the town.   The man was handsome.   The women of the town would often look at him as he walked past.

Night came soon enough.   The man went to the local bar.   He saw the girl from the night before and he politely waved at her.   When he was at the bar he found another man who was sitting alone.   He sat next to this Lonely Man.  He took a liking to this Lonely Man.  The man explained he did not have a room for the night and he needed somewhere to stay.  The Lonely man said the Man could sleep with him.  The wandering man who had entered the town only a day before accepted the offer.  That night the two men made love together.

The Man woke up the next day.  His body was sore from love-making.   When the Man decided to get out of bed it was near noon.  As he walked outside there were some tough men who stood in the street and looked at him.

Their leader spoke, “It’s time for you to go.”

The Man looked at their leader:  “Why is that?”

“You have crossed the line.  Men like yourself are not welcome here.”  Their leader spoke again.

“What kind of a Man am I?”  Asked the Man.

“Don’t get fresh with me!  The good people of this town saw you with the other man last night.  Such a thing is an abomination and not welcome in our town.  You must leave at once.  If you do not leave on your own, we will have to remove you by force.”  Their leader spoke bluntly and clearly.

“I understand.  Thank you for your hospitality.”  Said The Man.

The wandering man, who had entered the town and who had been with two different partners during his time, left the town.  He walked on in search of a new town.

I stood on the grassy bank looking out upon the city.  Cairo.  The capital of Egypt.

There I stood.  I looked upon the city.  It was well-fortified.   I wondered if the leader had a plan up his sleeve.

“Hello.” Said a fellow soldier.

“Hello Russ.” I said to him.

He walked up and stood next to me as we looked upon the city.  Russ was a good man.  He was a skilled archer.

“Looks like we will be attacking Cairo today.”  Said Russ.

“Is that so?”  I asked.

“That’s what people think that Leader will order.”  Russ said.

More men arrived.  There were some men on horseback.  There were some men with spears and there were a few men with only axes.

I thought to myself, “We have many men but not enough to win this fight.”

The Forever Soldier Continued Again

April 18th

“Have you always been a civilian?”   Asked the solider.

“As long as I can remember.”

“And How long is that?”

“I’m not quite sure.  But I know I have always lived in this city.”

“So why do you question me about my past If you don’t even know your own?”

“I just want to understand.”

“Understand what?”

“How is it possible?  How could you live so long and see so much but not age at all?”

“Maybe it is God.”

“You think it is God?”

“It must be.  How else could I be an immortal?”

“I don’t know.  I don’t know.  But why do you always follow the orders?”

“I’m a soldier.  That is what I do.”

“Been when you get an order from Leader … you never think about not obeying the order?”

“I never do.  What is there to think about?”

The Forever Solider Continued

“How old are you?”

“I don’t know how old I am.”

“But How long have you been alive?”

“I don’t know my age but I have lived a long time.”

“You don’t look a day older than thirty.”

“I can’t remember the last time that I looked older.”

“So are you saying you are immortal?”

“I don’t think so.  I have been wounded in battle.  But when I was wounded in battle I would find a medic and they would heal me.”

“That is so odd.  Have you always been a solider?”

“As long as I can remember I have been a soldier.  I have been in many battles.”

“Like what?”

“I helped our Leader destroy the Egyptians.”

“Oh wow.”

“Yes.  They were not that advanced.  Our technology was ahead of theirs and we were able to defeat them.  But we did lose men in battle.”

“Do you always follow orders?”

“Of course I do.  I am a solider.”

“But what if you did not?”

“What do you mean?”

“What if you did not follow your orders?”

“The thought has never occurred to me.  The orders have always been followed.”

“You never put any thought into if you wanted to be a solider or not?”

“I am a solider.  Have you always been a civilian?”

Day One

Gotta get up.  Gotta get up.

Ugh.  Look in the mirror.  Hair is a mess.  Gotta dunk it.

Move to bathtub.  Under spicket.  Cold cold warm hot.  Nice.  Grab the towel dry dry dry.

Walk into kitchen.  Let’s make some coffee.

RING RING RING.  Cellphone.  “Hello?”

“Hello.  This is Wells Fargo Online Services.  Calling in regards to your credit card interest rate w-”

hang up.  Ugh.  Annoying.  Credit card is fine.

Coffee ready.  Pour some cream.

Get text.  “yo sup”

It’s Gary.

“Coffee Time Gary”

“You down for later?”

“Yeah man 2pm at your place”

“Cool.  C u there”

Chill at my place.  Enjoy the coffee.  Watch the news.

Buzz Buzz.  Woah girl text.

“Hey.”

“Hey sup”

“I’m at work.  Should we meet up later?”

“yeah.  how about like 8?”

“8 is good.  At my place?”

“Yeah lets do that.  I’ll be there.”

she responds with a smiley face.  And a winky face.

I go to Gary’s place.  Hop in my car.

Get to Gary’s place.  Gary is chill.

“Yo man here is the stuff.”

I take 2 pads and place it on my tongue for them to dissolve.

A leprechaun shows up and runs around.

“I’m tripping balls right now.”

“You going to meet  your girl later?”

“Yeah bro.”

The wall to my left is melting.  It feels like it is raining but I know I am indoors.

Things go south.

I’m hot.  hot hot hot.

The trip goes bad.  I stand up.  There is fire around me.  Fire.  Skeletons.  Gargoyles are flying.  Men are in shackles.  A big demon appears and looks at me, he laughs menacingly.

I snap out I’m on the street.  I’m running.

What am I doing here?

BEEP BEEP BEEP skirrrrrrrrrrrr

Light Light

Darkness.

Wake up.  Doctors.  I can’t feel my leg.

“That car hit you pretty hard.”

“Doctor he was just standing in the road.”

My left leg is all bandaged up.

“Where is my phone?”

Your phone got all smashed up.  You keep it in your left pocket.

“She is going to be pissed.”

I blackout.

Yoshi Nishioka is a Winning Machine!!!

He is at this moment sitting at his career high ranking of 58 in the world.  Top 60!!!

He just beat Tomas Berdych in Indian Wells!

The lefty from Japan had to knockOut the talented Swede Elias Ymer and

then he had to defeat the big serving Dr Ivo Karlovic (The Ace Machine) and

Now he has defeated the Czech Terminator Berdych!

Nishioka is lefty and he is a scrappy-grinder kind of player who just battles and battles to win.  He hits lefty kick and lefty slice serves and he hits reverse forehands and hooks.  He is like a less-powerful Nadal.

I hope Nishioka can knock out Wawrinka!!!  That would be a huge upset!

I have a feeling that Wawrinka came will be too powerful but sometimes Wawrinka has “off” days and Nishioka can win if he is feeling good and “playing hot”

Good job to the young man from Japan!

Something I learned while reading a Gigantic Encyclopedia (Chinese Literature)

I had this huge encyclopedia.   Gigantic encyclopedias are a great way to randomly stumble upon interesting things.

I discovered LU XUN, who was a Chinese writer.    Lu Xun was a modern figure in Chinese Literature.

He wrote a famous story called “The True Story of Ah Q”

Kick Serve and Tennis (June 2017)

The kick serve is the best serve.   Topspin serve which produces a safe and reliable serve over and over again.

it will kick into the opponent.       Not many recreational players take time to learn the kick serve but it is the safest.    People who hate double faulting should learn the serve.     It is super hard to learn at first but will feel natural over time.      Some pros have clearly mastered it such as Pat Rafter, Rafter only used a heavy kick serve to serve and volley his way to greatness.

Sam Stosur clearly hits kick serves and when she plays well, then her serve is devastating.

You can tell the serve is being hit because of the path of the ball and where it will jump to.   Also you can see the serve based on the upward swing of the racquet.

Madison Keys also is hitting a powerful kick serve.
