Serving it Up
Actually, it’s more like not serving it up. I played tennis for the first time in…well over a year (Phu, when was the last time we played?). My groundstrokes were okay. My volleys were okay. But man, I can’t serve for crap. This is alarming since my game has been reduced to relying on spin and my lefty-acity. I know what the problem is though. I’m taking my eye off the ball way too soon. I can cheat like that on my groundies and volleys, but when I do it on my serve all sorts of things go wrong. Oh well. It was fun to play and I’d like to play more. I’m officially calling out Phu.
On a related note, I probably should get some new racquets. The ones I have are really for a more advanced player (what I used to be). I should trade in my mid-sized, modestly-powered sticks for some oversized racquets with a little more pop. *sigh* I’d like to stick to Yonex, but I should probably see what they make these days.
Aside from that, I really didn’t do much over the weekend. I was a little tired from rushing episode III and I wanted to save my personality for the road trip (have to put on the idiot act for the kids ya know). I’m sure it’ll get a little bit crazy so I figured I’d get some peace/slash quiet before it all starts. Plus, kit introduced me to the wonder that is Paul Walker. I swear, it’s as if Shane were a Hollywood star–he’s just so breathtakingly bad.
I should probably send off emails and prep my PC for the road. I have to leave for the airport in less than five hours.
