Low and behold, we were only 1 of 3 teams to sign up! And what's even funnier is that we got a bye. We play the final round of doubles qualifying on center court tomorrow
And if any team in the MD pulls out, we're the lucky losers.
And because I'm in the tournament, they asked me to play the pro-am this afternoon...and paid $75 for it. Not an encouraging sign when you get out there and the "am" is better than the "pro."
Look for the draw tonight on stevegtennis.com. My name is McCarton Ackerman.
We're gonna get killed obviously, but what a thrill!
You are my new hero, dude.
