I can't believe I missed the deadline for this contest. Of course, that does give me more time to kick around in the lounge ... heheheh

Actually, it has been very busy for me ... helping my oldest son move to British Columbia, taking in my daughter's graduation recital in Manitoba, followed by my other daughter's 3rd year recital [*heart melts here*], and having the LASIK procedure on both eyes.

They videotaped the surgery, and my youngest son and I watched it the next day. I gotta tell you, it's pretty creepy!

It's nice not to have to wear glasses, though I'm not grading where I want to be, and where we all expected the results to achieve. But I have a few more weeks of healing yet before we see [pun fully intended] where they wind up. My gorgeous Bollywoodesque surgeon says she hasn't had to do a "touch-up" in over two years. Oh well ... there you go!

At least, you got points for them making the correct round. Scores are going to be pretty high this week with the expected culprits(Roger,Nikolay,Daveed, and Nicolas) and 2 surprises (Blake on his 1st clay final and Granollers-Pujol) making the finals.

Yep. I think I'm going to have to give Tommy the old heave ho myself. Pretty-ing up my team is not reason enough to keep him. He really disappointed me in Houston as well.

I think everyone had Nadal on their team, so his surprising result is no net loss for anyone. But only a few of us have Ferrero, so here's hoping he has a long run. (Unfortunately, I subbed in Nalbandian as an A this week, and Kohlschreiber as a B last week, so I'll still suck).

*From what I can tell, your Simon/Monaco/Melzer picks should have you sitting pretty for a medal.

*It looks to me like Jack is pretty much dead as far as a medal is concerned.

*I only have Davydenko left- albeit just about everyone else has Davydenko, too- so, eat it, Melzer.

*In addition to of course Davydenko- nelslus is also now rooting MIGHTILY for Tsonga and Ljubicic to win their tournaments. Hell, Simon would be fine, too, since I think that e11even's the only one to have Simon. (A pretty little bronze medal would be just FINE for nelslus, thanks.) For sure- Monaco, Calleri and Benneteau must DIE- or, at the very least, not win their tournaments. The likes of tinamarie and suliso are FAR too close to nelslus' score for comfort. :(

I'm not sure how the scores stand right now, but I'll also be very happy to get at least another TAT-FT bronze medal! :cool:

Simon and Monaco FTW!!! :thumbsup:

People like suliso have only Davydenko and Calleri left and should be of no threat to the mighty nelslus :cheesy:

Nelslus does not buy this innocent act. Suliso wishes to rob nelslus of his much deserved pretty little bronze medal. :mad:

LOL. I know you're talking about me ;)


We'll get the scores up as soon as possible. The scoreboard takes a bit to get up :)

If we don't have it up tonight, we'll have them up by tomorrow, for sure. Sorry to keep you waiting.

The HECK with Jessie having a life.

Nelslus needs a consoling pretty little bronze medal (....he hopes?!?!?) as consolation after the freakin' Oli Rochus debacle today.

The suspense is still growing as to the final results. There appears to be some technical difficulties. I'm actuall still trying to figure if there's a way that I can manipulate the system to give me enough points to complete the greatest comeback in TAT contest history.

Seriously,

We're trying to work through some technical glitches. If scores are not up later this evening, they will definitely be up first thing tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience.

LOOK. Nelslus does not care about these freakin' technical difficulties of yours. Use a CALCULATOR. Nelslus sez, you all can give up food, water, showers, washroom privileges (how's THAT for not being too crass while we have guests in the house of TAT?!?!?) and sleep UNTIL YOU ALL GIVE NELSLUS HIS FLIPPIN' PRETTY LITTLE BRONZE MEDAL.

For heaven's sakes- nelslus was one of the Rochus pickers. Hasn't nelslus suffered enough today?!?!? :mad:

If we don't get our automation back, we'll be going to the calculators tonight. I can get pretty creative with numbers when left to my own device.

Don't forget the Hell Bus. Nelslus has a very special mrjiggyfly2-Brand calculator in hell JUST waiting for you if there's any funny-business here, Mister. :cheesy:

This delay better be a result of you trying to conjure the numbers so I too get a medal. If not I'm going to petition a recount until I win, a la Florida:cheesy:

Did nelslus not read the fine print in the rules that there are points off for badgering the judges? Keep it up, tough guy, and I'll move back into medal contention!

Could someone provide step-by-step instructions on how one would go about removing one of nelslus' medals?

Enter yourself into a hideous, violent and unholy death, and then try to wrestle said medal out of nelslus' cold, damp, rotting and vise-like corpse-grip.

PRECIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
