    Congrats BillVFW - Winner of our 1st Suicide Pool

    By surviving Day 8, BillVFW has won the 1st TAT Grand Slam suicide pool. All of our other contestants lost with their Day 8 selection.

    Hope everyone that played will extend a hearty "Yo" to Bill.

    I also hope Bill will continue to make picks...even though he is the only one left, I'd like to see how deep we can make the game go (so we can see if anything needs tinkering for our Roland Garros Suicide Pool), and also so we have a record to be challenged .

    The prize for our pool was the winner's choice of a copy of John McEnroe's "You Cannot Be Serious", Wertheim's "Venus Envy", or Brad Gilbert's "Winning Ugly". Bill, I'll pm you with details.

    As a matter of fact, BillVFW, there is a Veteran's residential center and outpatient clinic about ten minutes from my home, in Spring City PA.

    I'll contact them this week and see about a book donation. And my library holds a lot more than tennis books - so I'll see what I have that would be used by the vets, and be sure to make sure its something that will be enjoyed there.

    I'll even fill out one of my generic bookplates and note that it is a TAT donation to the Center.

    Good Game, Bill ;D
    I am a citizen of the most beautiful nation on earth. A nation whose laws are harsh yet simple, a nation that never cheats, which is immense and without borders, where life is lived in the present. In this limitless nation, this nation of wind, light, and peace, there is no other ruler besides the sea.
