Bad Court Behavior
As cuddly and lovable as I can be, I am a competitive asshole on the tennis courts. I literally thought my doubles partner was going to put his racquet strings around my neck with one mighty bludgeon.
On two memorable points, I raced left and right returning back sure winners by the other team. They were amazing rallies that showed off my athletic prowess... until my doubles partner contributed by muffing the points.
I screamed, "COME ON TOM!!!" I had never seen someone turn so red. I was in imminent danger of being impaled by a yellow ball at the hands of my own doubles partner. Gulp! The other team stood by silently and watched the spectacle unfold.
We actually played very well together, but ended up losing 3-6, 6-3, 7-6. I am not sure my doubles partner has forgiven my bratty outbursts yet. Sigh.
