4.0 Week 3

Well last weekend proved to have some good matches and show who might rise to the top. Team Eddie suffered a tough loss as did BH/Helterbran by our team. Greenhill and Eldorado also took losses in Flight D. Bartlett's team looked very strong in that match and the Lakes looked good although not as strong as the Spring, but it is early. And oh my the big upset of HP/Somabut by perennial also ran Oak Creek.

Flight A has some good matchups. HP v. LBH, Village v. Fretz and BH v. Springpark. I think our flight will almost be decided in the next two weeks.

Flight B OC Smith gets a chance to show they aren't a fluke as they take on Stonebriar and LBH/Hicks has a little test v. Springpark but our match of the week pits Garland v. HP/Somabut. Could HP drop to 1-2. I know just about all the players on each roster and I think this should be good but I like dirty Garland to grab the win and I am not sure I would call it an upset.

Flight C. Team Eddie should get back on track v. LBH. Eagles Landing v. Garland should be a good one as well but I like Bill's team to take out this version of Dirty Garland.

Flight D. Lakes v. Stonebridge and Greenhill v. Eldorado. Two big matches and the winner of the first one will be sitting pretty and the loser of the second one might as well start XMAS shopping.

  1. I know it is still early, but what is the format for playoffs this fall? Just top team from each division or is there also a play-in?

  2. Somabut's juggernaut may have finally been broken. I pick Garland also.

  3. I told the fools on this site a month ago that reputation means nothing. It is about the talent tha you have right now. Right now Bob's talent is not as good as the past. Just a fact. You could say the same thing about lifetime. They had a good team in the spring. Right now they don't and are 0-1. No Forrest, No Hill, No Mudsam, No Takashi. All of a sudden they are an average team. Let's see if they can right the ship. HP doesn't seem to have guys on the sidelines. They are just not as good.

  4. Now there is really no love for HP. Our chip is growing. Pretty soon we will have as big an inferiority complex as LTF.

    Maybe one day we will be good again. For now, I guess we'll go hang our heads and look forward to 3.5's. After all, we did just lose a match 2-3. All is lost. Its over for us baby. Darn it all!

    ReplyDelete
  5. At least you dont have it as bad as any of the Garland teams. Win or loose, we r always in the doghouse.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Oh yes, woe is Garland. Win or lose we get ridiculed. We have a player change the spelling of his name and bring players that are obviously out of level. We are so innocent but everyone else misunderstands us.

  7. My life has been spent in the dog house! Woof Woof! GRRRRRR! Sniff, Sniff, gotta go, someone is in heat!

  8. Oh geez! You finally came out from under your rock to cry some more. Can you say...broken record! Vj was commenting specifically about you..and you just solidified his reasoning! Get a life...we have all been bumped to 4.0 and I bet now you are going to start to say we need to be playing the challenger circuit.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Nobody but Garland has ringers so it is absolutely justified to ridicule us. the Garland Tennis Center attracts all the ringers; something about that place i guess!!
    Anywho, i rest my case. goodluck to garland/Sisk this Sunday.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I have to agree. The past is the past. Let's not make this a bitch fest again. That is so overdone already.

    the name has to stay though. I still like the name. Now, it OBVIOUSLY has no meaning to it (anymore - for the haters) but it is still just FUN to call them Dirty Garland now. It just has this ring to it.

    Good Luck this weekend Dirrty. Oh yeah.

    EXCEPT FOR THAT JACQUES DELIRA GUY You STILL SUCK! And while I am at it since I forgot to haze Cary on the previous thread. jeez, you really suck too. How could you blow all those shots?

    Oh Shit! I THINK I posted this anon, right? ;)

  11. Hey Rock Jock,

    "gotta go, someone is in heat"......and seven minutes later you're back blogging?

    ReplyDelete
  12. thanks for reminding me BMO. Trust me I heard it from my guys who were all done 40 minutes before me. But I tell you I hate playing when I have a good team because I find myself watching other matches more than playing mine. I was relieved when I saw Trae and Kyle get the 3rd line next to me but shocked to see Kirby and Ed getting beaten two courts down, all the while I was up a set and a break thinking, these guys are going to start missing pretty soon and I am gonna go grab a grilled chicken wrap and the next thing I know I am double faulting at 5-4.

    ReplyDelete
  13. BTW I want to say I am picking Garland but would not be shocked to see Bob's team win. They are still solid with Jean, Doug, Doug and Tim. I know past that they have had trouble getting their best players out on the court which I fully understand. I am sure they relish the chance to play a match that means something this early in the fall regular season.

    I wish I could see it but I am playing at LBH at 1p as well.

    Have a good match guys.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hey you are at LBH at 1pm. So are we. We should all put $2 each in a pot and see who looses the fewest games total between all 4 teams. Winner takes all. Eddie.

    ReplyDelete
  15. 11:37 poster..yeah...I had to make it quick..your mother was late for her second job at Keller's.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Bmo....so if I suck good does that mean I am a shoe in for the Lifetime team? Ha Ha Ha!

    Snot Jock

    ReplyDelete
  17. What's wrong with Keller's?

    ReplyDelete
  18. uhhh, Snot, I don't know about the suck good part, you will have to ask your bf about that. (or from what I hear any gay guy that comes by your street corner in Oak lawn on Friday nights.

    Eddie, I like that idea. So, that is $64 for anybody that can basically double bagel their opponet, or $32/each if it is doubles team.

  19. Mom is pushing 300lbs. I hope you plugged her back in to her oxygen tank.

  20. DALLAS CUP - NOT THIS YEAR!
    i am passing on the dallas cup this year. DTA makes no attempt to communicate with players and we had a lot of league admin screw ups in 2008. they dont deserve any more of our $

    ReplyDelete
  21. Where r u baseline Jesus? We need more guidance from the heavens. More you. Less BMO and rockjock.

    One question. Do you not have a net game baseline Jesus?

    Signed....big fan.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great call. Baseline Jesus you are much needed here. I almost called you by your shortened name (BJ), but thought that might not be appropriate considering. Baseline Jesus, please give us some words to live by now that BMO and SNOT have taken over this stream!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. anon 1:31
    I agree there are a lot better charities than the DTA.

    ReplyDelete
  24. snot jock is a homo

    ReplyDelete
  25. Did you say "Snot Jock" is a "BMo"???

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'll take Garland also.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The only way I can play out at lifetime to look at all the MILFS is to suggest I am a homo so they will keep inviting me out to play.

    Where is Freebase Jesus?

    ReplyDelete
  28. HP 4-1 over Garland.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm picking Garland 4-1.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Give your $ to the Red Cross to help those that lost everything in the storm. Don't waste your $ on the DTA Dallas Cup. Their dinner, silent auction etc is all a big rip off. The DTA does not give a dam about league players.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have changed my profile for all my anonom-ass friends!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Too bad SnotJock doesn't have a game to back up all of his smack talking. You wouldn't play Line 5 doubles for Lifetime. At least your smack is somewhat good because your game Succkkss!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. HP votes are catching up with only 60% of the blog thinking they are going to lose instead of 70%

    ReplyDelete
  34. Is that the real reason why you bring a towel when you play tennis?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Bob's team is overated.

    ReplyDelete
  36. No way Garland drops more than 1 line. Nguyen and Smith are the only ones that win their line.

    ReplyDelete
  37. OC beats LTF/Barron 3-2
    OC beats HP/Somabut 3-2

    GTC beats LTF/Barron 5-0

    Tell me how HP/Somabut has a chance this weekend?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm rooting for John's team obviously, but Bob always has an ace up his sleeve.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Answer the following and then I will tell you how/if HP has a chance against GTC.

    Did HP have it's #1 lineup against OC? Did OC have it's #1 lineup against LTF? Did LTC play it's #1 lineups againt OC and GTC? Did everyone that played in either of those 2 weeks play their best tennis both weeks? Did all team play their lines straight up? Will HP and GTC both be playing their #1 lines this weekend?

    Knowing that most players who have made it to 4.0 level lack consistancy in their play week to week, I'd say that unless you are sure all answers to the above questions are yes then you really can't use prior weeks play to predict the outcome of this weeks match.

    I think HP has a strong chance at winning this weekend as it is rumored that they overlooked OC based on last year's 4-1 win by not playing their A team last weekend.

    This weekend is certainly going to be a good match that may determine the fate of both team this season. HP certainly can't afford another loss and I don't think GTC will want to get a loss this early.

    There will be no guaranteed wins for either team. Both teams should have their #1 lineups playing this weekend. Should be a great match.

    Good luck to both.

    ReplyDelete
  40. well put. Good luck to both. I look forward to seeing the results on Sunday.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would like to talk about how good lifetime is and how everyone is playing for second, but we tanked it last week and have a lot to prove now, so I will just SHUT UP AND PLAY. I know many of you are disappointed by this.

    ReplyDelete
  42. That may be the more sensible comment I have ever heard from the over the top lifetimer. Don't be too hard on yourselves lifetimers. I saw the line-up you put out there. Not your best. You guys will be fine. When is Eddie getting back, if at all? Get Forrest and Mudsam in the line-up and you guys won't lose again this fall. What happened to Wines? That was a bad loss.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Let's see Lifetimer
    Was posting last season on behalf of both Lifetime/Ferrell and Lifetime/Hill.
    This season he is only posting for Lifetime/Hill.

    The list of 3.5's from lifetime that played on both Ferrell/Hills teams that are now on Just Hills team is pretty short.

    Lifetimer I know who you are
    And I am ashamed of you!

    ReplyDelete
  44. What about Lifetime Kaiser and Lifetime Barron? Lifetime has more players than GTC/OC/HP...

    ReplyDelete
  45. It's not me... really!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Really it's the other guy.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I can 100% say with certainty, AND, with no BS that I have NEVER posted or blogged under lifetimer.

    I have my guesses on who it is but I don't even know for sure. They all deny it when I ask. PLUS, lifetimer just started blogging this season, not last season. So, I don't think there was ever any blog about 3.5 stuff there.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh cmon, you know it's you!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Just my honest opinion but Ferrell's team was alot lot stronger than yours is now. I know it's not comparing apples to apples but you have your work cut out for you.

    ReplyDelete
  50. BMo is full of Uknow.. what. It is him and his slicing lefty serve posing as Lifetimer.

    No one else on that team has any personality. It has to be you.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Farrell's team better than Hill's team. Are you serious??? What line would they win?

    Forrest v Mudsam
    Hill v Torto

    Meyers/Bmo v Bmo/Andy
    Kennedy/Walker v Blackburn/Barron
    Brinkman/Asako v Ferrell/Beck

    5-0 Lifetime/Hill

    ReplyDelete
  52. That mean BMo is playing with himself. I mean against himself.

    ReplyDelete
  53. As the a knowing Lifetimer. Let me say it is not even close. Lifetime Hill wins in landslide.

    ReplyDelete
  54. There is no doubt in my mind that our 3.5 team last season would have won nationals, if we had gotten there. We had to figure our team out and the line ups a long the way, but we did, and I feel confident we would have won nationals.

    This 4.0 team has a strong chance to do well this season, obviously we don't have the gifted takashi on the team, and the great Eddie is still faking his injury, but we have a chance to do well this season. Our pieces just need to come together.

    I think the match up of Somabut and dirty is going to be a big tell.

    That said, I still think Lifetime can make some noise, besides verbally. ha ha.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I am still ashamed of you!!! You can deny all you want but I know how you are!!! I can't even make the point that the spring team was better as a group than yours is now without being treated like your bastard child. Again, let me say that I know it's not comparing apples to apples dumb ass.

    ReplyDelete
  56. ?

    I think I agreed with you, concerning the teams. And, NO, I am not lifetimer.

    ReplyDelete
  57. ??????????? dah, which way is up????

    ReplyDelete
  58. No doubt about it- LFT wins hands down this weekend!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Eddie Hill would kick Obama's @ss. Hill for president!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh were still talking about the "BIG FISH". Wish we could talk about about something different. Brian appears to be HIGH MAINTENENCE!!!! Every time I turn around it seems to be something about Bmo.

    ReplyDelete
  61. NO Sh*T!!!!, Does Bmo even know Eddie will most likely re-appear in 3.5. This guy is a real dumbass!!! I would hate for Brian to be on my team. Talk about a liability!!!! I'm surprised that Eddie has'nt taken away his computer keyboards!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. This guy bored ME in the 3.5 threads and now I guess he is going to bore US in the 4.0 stuff. Can someone stuff a sock in this guys mouth? Does He even know that his post comes across as somewhat guy????

    Eddie,

    Help please!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. If you ever meet the guy you would think he is gay, just my opinion!!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would'nt think Eddie would want a gay guy on his team. Not that there is anything wrong with gay people......but you know what I mean...There is a place and time to be gay and team tennis and/or the blog is not it!!!!! BRIAN MORRISON TAKE A HIKE!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I didn't even know BMO was gay. I guess I am out of the loop on everything.

    ReplyDelete
  66. EDDIE,

    Quit being a jerk to your own teammates - ANONYMOUSLY!!!! jeez!

    The question WAS NOT APPLES TO APPLES (which was NOT my question). Obviously Hill team is a better team, but against the rank and field of the other 3.5s or the other 4.0s. Ferrel's team was better against the rest of the field.

    Obviously, the quality of the play is BETTER at 4.0. That is WHY it is called 4.0 and not 3.5! DUH~!

    To: Anonymous September 18, 2008 10:45 PM

    STFU! You don't even make sense. SORRY if you don't like my pic for this wekeend, but I love rooting for EVERY 3.5 person that came up from 4.0 this year.... THE EX 3.5er's kept getting told how we could not compete at the next level.

    As long as you don't ask ALL of them to try to carry their team, I think that you will see several Rookies make a STRONG IMPACT at this level.

    Barnhard, (Klemecki at doubles if he works at it * - since singles is a much longer to adjust to the next level), Curren, Flora, Defeo (who is still technically a 3.5 for some reason????), SNOTJOCK - if he would work on his damn SECOND SERVE -Jeez! Target practice anyone? HA HA!!! I STILL owe you.

    AND these are guys from 3.5 with a very quick browse that have played already. There will be others. Again, you can't ask a FULL ex 3.5 team to move up and make an impact.

    * FOOTNOTE: LTF Barron has SO much more potential on their team then what they have shown out on the court so far. I am flabergasted at their results right now **** FLABERGASTED!!! WTF? Seriously?

    Finally, If you don't like reading about tennis, then don't read the blog! HATER!

    EDDIE, I will see you at the restaraunt at 12:30 pm for lunch. eDDIE,

    ReplyDelete
  67. uhhh, ask my gf of 3.5 years if I am gay.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Thanks for mentioning us. We will lay off you now!!!

    ReplyDelete
  69. There is no doubt in my mind we will win national at 4.0 next year! Take that to the bank, we are so much better than the rest of you stiffs! Not to mention all of the guys I mentioned that got moved up to 4.0 from 3.5 had been at the 4.0 level previously (2-3 years ago). We are just awesome!

  70. Looks like the anon ass wipes are out in full force and I just found out my game sucks so I better hang up my racquet and quit before we go to Nationals. Damn!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hey,
    I can play doubles,
    I won last week,
    And I took it to lifetime a couple weeks ago and Dominated with the "Brink-Man" as my partner.
    It's just their are too many sissys out there who only play doubles and will not play singles, so I have been more valuable at that position.

    As For BhoMO being Gay,
    I saw his girlfriend talking on a cell phone at one of the 3.5 matches, She had on those big sun glasses and had a Paris Hilton thing going on and she was HOTT!!
    But,
    I think she had a Dick.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I prefer to read Bmo posts. It's not as generic as Eddies.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'm not so sure that I want to be mentioned only as a footnote though!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. BMO, OC BL, and Rockjock have taken over these blog streams. It sux. They have nothing to offer of interest. BORING....

    Where are you Baseline Jesus? We need saving again. Redeem this blog site please. And smite those BORING posters and their sinful gay references. Bring joy to us oh wise One. Else I fear backsliding and ceasing to visit this site evermore.

  75. Update On Lifetimer:
    In a sealed confession, Lifetimer confessed to me that he is really Doug Smith, alias how in the world can I win at doubles without Joel carrying me.

  76. You know BMO is a raving fag since he felt the need to mention a "girlfriend" of 3 and 1/2 years. Thou dost protest too much, sir. Plenty of guys use the cover of the "girlfriend" to hide their alternative lifestyle, or at least that's what Nancy told me while he was arching his wrist during a slice backhand.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I don't even bother with the cover of having a girlfriend.

  78. 3 1/2 years, what wrong with you boy??? Do you even know what 2nd base is?
