    Every time I played tennis when I was younger, I would knock the crap out of the ball like it was a baseball. Never got the angle down.

    I grew up with Baseball on my own, and golf with my dad. Never liked golf much until I was older. Worked down to a single digit handicap and then had a son and had no time for it.

    College Ball?

    bingo!
    lost track of the # of balls i chased down, knocking them over the fence with my baseball swing. LOL
    is a different mentality, surely

    College Ball?
    college(briefly) then semi-pro, had a pro contract but got hurt before i ever played a game
    spent next couple yrs, well, sidetracked by other things before i decided to try again mid-20s..local scout for Tampa Rays looked at me, had interest, but by that time i was supporting child & wife, couldn't deal with minor league pay + longshot chance (age)

    so, played around in local leagues for awhile, had some fun, till i decided to get serious into bb'ing and shaping my physique



    life happens man
    still think i missed my calling in baseball, but oh well

    Never liked golf much until I was older.
    baseball mentality, again
    plus i'm a lefty, and was always hard to find lefty clubs to rent for some reason
    just no interest, chasing a lil white ball around, hitting it again, repeat..bleh

    OF, 1B some, pitched some (had a great fastball, lil wild tho, wouldn't have made it pitching just not built for it long-term)..scouted/signed for OF position tho
    even played some back-up 3B in college, dint care for it much (lefty again) but i was athletic enuff to fill the gap when needed

    man, them were the days :wistful:

    lil different protocol today..nothing drastic, just larger #'s

    so, the preWO shake was 315cals w/ carbs
    intraWO was 180cals w/ carbs
    immediate postWO shake was 530cal w/ carbs

    and thus, ~35min later, my postWO meal was..



    1 packet Tuna Creations (herb & garlic)
    6 slices Hormel natty deli turkey breast
    broccoli
    2 TBS natty PB
    ~430cals, trace carbs only

    (btw - i never count veggie carbs in my cal totals, ever..bcaa's neither)

    oh, and the workout itself: phantastik!
    chest was so swole, i could balance a plate off the top of my upper pecs -- in the standing position!

    well they were actually the devil rays back then, and this was in 95 when they were just getting rolling (so like 3yrs before they actually fielded a MLB team)
    they were doing everything on a shoestring budget back then (except scouts, had some good ones)
    classy organization now tho indeed..mgr maddon is a beast

    Love price man. He is lethal and longoria with the bat. Will be following them for sure this season. May even buy a membership to watch it

    go go, runner_79's bro! very cool

    will be watching the final indeed, even if i don't really care for either of them (djok is no joke tho, i do enjoy watching him, damn surgeon he is)

    rays got a squad - keep an eye on will myers this yr man, i think he's gonna be huge
    (and these young stud pitchers they got are (archer/moore/hellickson) are gonna come into their own this yr)
    i pick them to win the division, even if their offense overall still a lil soft
    (but lookout for toronto, they're only a few pieces + a healthy bautista away from being right there!)

    Baptista is crazy good.
    I like hellickson. Good talent and he is tall, strong and long levers.

    Can't wait for the season to start.

    Yeah. They aren't the same without the old guard. But I still love em. Wish TBS still aired them. I hope the Uptons work out. They haven't lived up to their potential hopefully they will in Atlanta.

    i think they will..brothers playing together, and with that talent, can fix a lot of other issues that may have been dragging them down
    bj will always be a streak-hitter tho, i don't know that you should expect anything different from him


    @chris - see? the joker was surgical once again..he is, simply, the best tennis player currently (and that includes roger) - and has youth on his side
    don't think anyone touches this guy for a few yrs..
    forgot to mention - i watched a lil of the womens final previously, had to mute the damn tv
    azarenka has got to be the most annoying player on tour with her shrieking (other than serena with her pooor attitude)
    at least sharapova is halfway cute-sounding when she shrieks, and she doesn't do it to that extent
    wow
    li na continues to get better with age, playing well @almost 31y/o


    moving on to cover other sports - how 'bout the parity in college basketball this yr? who is #1?
    i'd like to say my own Hoosiers, but they still have tests to pass
    should be good match against michigan state today..big 10 = toughest conference in country, by far

    and that was sports..in other news:
    shaking up the order of training (again), getting a leg session in
    different format/structure than last which was quad-based, this one will have emphasis on hammies and calves will be worked heavier and slower
    and, i'm off......

    enjoy your sunday guys

    Cool convos going on in here. Wish I had been athletic enough to try and pursue things at least through college, but at the same time if I had it probably would have lessened my growth towards my current profession now (would have had less time to pursue other things with all that commitment in college). Still think it may have been an awesome experience.

    Figured Snag was a good person to ask this..but do you like kale? Never tried it but randomly think I might add it into my diet and see if it sticks. If you have I would love to know what the best ways to add it (good food combos, etc.). Yes completely random but o well.

    Ok thanks. Figured it might be rough that is why I asked (knew there was a very high probability you have tried it). I may still give it a go.

    I hate asparagus. Never enjoyed it. I eat so much broccoli though and probably need more diversity in my veggies.

    prolly not
    i know we (as educated bb'ers) like to think we need 'diversity' in our dietary intake - and in regards to protein sources in general, i have no problem with that (still will not do pork, other than the occasional ribs)..amino profile diversity and all that
    veggies tho (fruits to a lesser degree), meh.
    fact is, greens are the best veggie you can get, no comparison
    diversity within your greens?
    nah, don't get carried away brother
    for the record, i eat 2 serving broccoli daily (sometimes 3) as well as romaine salad
    my bases are well covered..anything other than that, is simply diversity for the taste buds

    diversity and healthy balance overall tho - can't argue
    you would do well, taking that approach in most everything - life included

    love me some spinach! (hey, it worked for popeye)
    collard greens are cool - definitely gotta be done right, else i feel like a damn horse
    greens ftw! (i don't touch peas tho)

    all this food talk..and i'm still hungry these days
    think i'll take in ~500-600g carbs today, shake it up (a 'carb-up' if you will)
    couple potatoes (sweet & russet)..some jasmine rice..got some quinoa left over..grape nuts..of course Egg McSnag for breakfast already w/ fruit
    works out well as i minimized my simple sugar intake (only postWO shake this day, nothing pre or intra)
