Life is like a rollercoaster...


Full of highs and lows. Sometimes you're a superstar. Other times, a you're a big fat loser.

Today I was a big, fat loser. I lost my singles match 6-2, 6-2 to a 70 year old woman with huge boobs and skinny little chicken legs.

I felt like my worst tennis nightmare was coming true. In the first set she had me down 5-0 in less than half an hour. I suddenly came out of my fundraiser induced trance and realized I might not get even one game off the old gal.

I gave her a good fight from that point forward, but it wasn't enough. DAMN she was GOOD!!Justify Full

I looked her up on the USTA website after the match. She plays on SEVEN different teams. SEVEN!!!! I barely have time for one. Damn. How the hell do you compete with that?

I think I'm going to have to give up housework, cooking and all volunteering at the school and start training in earnest.

My husband and family will just have to understand. My responsibilities are getting in the way of a winning tennis season!! These losses go down on my permanent tennis record.

This is a very serious situation.

Time to go sulk.

Ouch. Since she's old and SEEMS like she should be easily beat, you should team up with her and hustle other player's, White Men Can't Jump style.

Those chicken legs with big boobs can fool 'ya. I've lost my share of tennis to the old ladies. Hopefully I'll be old and still good at tennis one day (but I'll pass on the big boobs!)

the photo just made me laugh. Sorry for your pain. I played my 25 year old brother last night. I lost. And now I am sitting on a chair with a heating pad today. I feel your pain.

How could you let life get in the way of training. What were you thinking? You'll make a comeback and sweep her next time.

Maybe this was a reality check for you. Gives you something to strive for. If every game was an easy win it wouldnt be any fun after a while.

Sorry to hear that! Now channel that sulking into something positive - like shopping. :)

I'm sure you'll do better next time. I have to say I'm impressed with her being that active and on so many teams.
