“I’ve got a lot of problems with you people, and now you’re gonna hear about it!”
Oh, how I love the Costanzas.
Festivus is upon us, and as promised, I’m here to air my tennis grievance. It’ll be tough, but I’m going to limit myself to one.
It really bugs me when opponents send balls willy-nilly to my side of the court when I’m not looking for the ball. I’ll be walking to the baseline to serve when a tennis ball will bounce past me, hitting the back curtain before rolling off somewhere I wasn’t headed.
Stop doing this, people! Just hold onto the ball until I turn around. Or, if you can’t wait those five seconds, call my name and I’ll turn around to catch the ball. When I have to spend time retrieving random balls, it interrupts my service rhythm and slows down the game for everyone.
Hey, getting that off my chest feels good! I think Mr. Costanza was onto something.
Got a bone to pick with your fellow tennis players–or perhaps with the pros? Of course you do! Have at it in the comments section! Fa la la la la…🎶😂
Happy Festivus, everyone! See you in 2019! (And thanks to everyone for reading this blog and sharing your own experiences with me. Blogging can be a lonely business, but seeing a comment or hearing feedback in person makes it worthwhile! 😊🎾)
