From what I've heard, draw will really suck this year. No good teams.

I've heard there will be 3 divisions this year: Legal Teams, Illegal Teams and Teams That Are Technically Legal But Have No Morals

I heard that it's actually an age based draw this year - 5 years and under. There will be full time daycare, food, drink and activities at OH for those that don't cry and are potty-trained; for those that cry and poop all over........don't come.

A player has a set level unless they come in from out of town. Your league level is your level no matter what. If you were not good enough to stay in your level even if your partner is the anchor on your team, it's just as much your own fault for not improving so that your team could stay in that level or move down to a higher level. Now if you have a knack for picking good partners that would mesh well with your own game then kudos to you, some people are just better at that then others.

Sincerely,
Legit Level 2

when we lose - it's my partner's fault.

That's quite a Manifesto from The Kid, sounds like he's preparing everyone for something sketchy...

Picking partners that mesh with your game or picking partners that are playing with crappy players so they are in their wrong level. Also the unbalanced schedule means some legit teams get dropped because the weaker teams have easier schedules.

These tournaments are all about getting the best lower level player who is not really at that level - let's be honest.

If any level 1's are looking for a sandbagger, I'm secretly an 11 posing as a 14.

I'll be interviewing potential candidates next week.

More importantly, can we get the food in the hut this year for the whole thing? I got there too late for lunch which was apparently all the way in the main clubhouse, then the dinner got there after I had sat there for 2 hours.
During the CCR tournament they had a damn toddler's bday party in the hut so we all had to sit in our cars, get it together Oak Hill, where's my $70 going?

Maybe use a Highlighter for extra effect, that should garner the attention of the Tournament Committee...

With only a few days to go, surprised the chatter has died down. Come on people, go get'em!

Not much suspense this year after two of the top studs currently in Level 1 teamed up. Kinda like when Durant sold out and teamed up with Curry.
Foregone Conclusion

I think there are holes in both of these teams, you never know who is going to show up!! Plenty of room to move through these guys, also - I think there are other teams that have some good things going on too. This will not be a roll.

Don't worry everyone, I'll take them out. No fouls in paddle for hitting below the belt, right?

I chose my partner for OH because he has the best volley in town and one of the best serves in town. If you don't like the teams they let in, then you can eat a poop pie. See you tomorrow.
