TT0607, Week 10

Full team on display this evening, and we even had a brief practice at lunchtime. After all, not long now until the 2012 Olympics. Didn't do us a great deal of good, going down 3-7, though that is a full three more points than our previous outing.

KC did his customary so close and still so far routine, winning the odd end and losing certain games 9-11. AC had flown in from LAX, lagging sleep, whereas I was plain lax and flagging from the off. First game was against that rare quantity, a female TT player, who set about knocking me off the table. Went to the fifth end, nine-all, and I displayed some ungentlemanly conduct in sneaking the victory. Which turned out to be my one and only point.

All credit to the carpenter in the opposition team, who takes his name from the initial letters of months 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11, and who hammered the lot of us. Did you see what I did there?
