In 2015.

Take your time before exacting vengeance. I'm expecting it now. It would be way better if you blind-sided me.:)

Volcana
Dec 23rd, 2002, 08:10 PM
tenn_ace - Well, yeah. It's not like I wished any bad on her. However, feel free to nuke me in return. It's off-season. We need to keep ourselves busy. Try to be funny. Think of me as an easy bar to get over. Or an easy bar to get over in.:)

holy crap, you made my heart race 1 million miles. good one, considering it was a joke, but i suggest that nobody does this because it can probably cause harm to die-hard fans of the players.:)

Volcana
Dec 23rd, 2002, 08:25 PM
I promise I won't do it agin where Martina is concerned. I'll warn you now though, I heard a rumor Serena won't defend RG becasue she's got a big role inthe next Halle Berry movie. I only warn you now cause you'll all forget by then.

Very funny post! :)
These are the kind of shocker threads that I like to start and get the boards collective juices flowing faster and hotter. :)

However, we may be saying goodbye to Hingis and most of the top ten by 2006-7 anyway. :)

Dec 23rd, 2002, 11:00 PM
I was half wanting to go to yahoo sports to see if it was true and half wanting to ignore it cos 'it just had to be false'. did scare me a lil tho.

Well done Volcana, at least you spiced up this boring December for a couple of seconds ;)

Volcana

TennisPower - I didn't pick Martina so much as I picked a topic. There have been so many of these 'Hingis should retire', 'hingis is washed up' threads that I knew anyone seeing that title HAD to consider the possiblity it was true, so it was an easy joke. The Hingis fans would only be mad at me for a couple seconds, and the Hingis haters would get what they deserved over their disappointment.

Celeste
Dec 24th, 2002, 03:15 AM
Bull, some Williams fans love to stick it to Martina fans, and they love to put some sting on it also. How would you have liked it if I posted this during the Venus' hiatus in 2000?

Some people did post retirement threads for Venus, Celeste.

that was not funny at all

Shuji Shuriken
Dec 24th, 2002, 03:38 AM
haha...gave me a good chuckle although i knew for sure it wasn't true. Some people just need to get their head out of their asses long enough to smile every now and then.

yeah, well, when the subject matter is that shocking, it's hard to laugh

Dec 24th, 2002, 03:59 AM
Cmon, I know you guys didn't believe this? When I first saw it, I thought that maybe it was true for a second, but then I just started laughing. Volcana you are such a CLOWN! LOL:D

Picol
Dec 24th, 2002, 04:03 AM
Volcano you must be a huge fan of Martina. You post so much about her. Even though they are mostly disrespectful it does point to the adage "Constant Negativity hides deep respect"

Merry Christmas to all :)

Dawn Marie
Dec 24th, 2002, 06:43 AM
Well then hell alot of people must really respect Venus Williams:)

Picol
Dec 24th, 2002, 07:09 AM
Working on that theory Dawn Marie, then I have no respect for any player :p

oh wait Seles and Hingis do annoy me at times.

( I hope that it doesn't come across as begrudging respect for those 2 :p)

TeeRexx
Dec 24th, 2002, 10:01 AM
Some people on this board have zero sense of humor.
And I have posted threads with titles just as shocking about my own faves as well.

So learn to laugh.
Or learn to shut the hell up.

So you have posted topics at a time when one of your favorites career still hangs in the balance? To the best of my knowledge you are a Williams fan and I do not recall them ever going through a career threatening injury, well not a real one anyway, I may not be Martina Hingis' greatest fan, but I would never dream of posting a thread at a time when her return is unknown by her, let alone anyone else.

seems some people mix up humour with poor taste. the mix of tennis fans that have found this funny is not lost on me either.

Volcana
Dec 24th, 2002, 10:51 AM
Celeste - I would have had exactly the same reaction a lot of Hingis fans had to this thread. Apprehension when I saw the title. Laughter when I saw the first two words of the thread.

The Visored Boy - How do people post replies if they don't open the thread?

Ben Brigham
Dec 24th, 2002, 10:56 AM
There was a time when all your posts used to be enlightening Volcana. That was a long time ago. You'll allowed the negativity of GM to affect you which is disappointing coz you were always able to rise above it. :sad:

Volcana
Dec 24th, 2002, 10:59 AM
BNB - Ah well, as I go under for the third time, I'll try not to find humor in it.:)

I could tell the post was fake by the amount of replies. If it was real, there would have been a few hundred replies as soon as it was posted.

LOL @ Volcana.
Since I only knew you as a serious poster who is very thorough and who (whom?) I respect very much, you DID give me a fright.

But it's funny! :D

auntie janie
Dec 24th, 2002, 01:05 PM
TeeRexx, if I saw the very same thread with YOUR name on it, I would not have believed it for a second, since you are famous for your jokes. I would have entered the thread happily to see what the rest of your joke was. :)

But until now I have seen only interesting, informative threads from Volcana. Now I know not to believe what she posts, either! Live and learn. :rolleyes:

Experimentee
Dec 24th, 2002, 01:15 PM
It wasnt that funny. Most of us knew it wasnt true straight away. You could have at least done a Tee Rexx and wrote a fake article to go with it.

Volcana
Dec 24th, 2002, 01:23 PM
Experimentee - That wouldn't have been fair. I am well aware that Hingis fans fear she won't return. The thread title was as far as I was willing to play off that. Going further would have been kinda mean.

GrandSlammed
Dec 24th, 2002, 03:04 PM
... you done went and disappointed summa yose white folks Volcana... what's us gone do now?

I once saw a thread on the old Sanex board titled, "SERENA WILLIAMS KILLED IN CAR ACCIDENT!!!!"

I didn't even bother to go into the thread... that's how effective it was in fuckin' with me... you bunch of over-sensitive, whining, uppity asses.

Picol - I guess that your slow witted mind er, forgot that the WTA hired three of the best doctors in the U.S. to examine the wrist of VENUS and in 2000 she was off the tour for 6-7 months and her own father said that she should retire.
Go whine somewhere else, please.

Janie - Go have a capucino and go out and meet a couple of sailors to spend the night with because you are wound way to tight to be upset by a thread title.
Look at the sports news sites and you will be able to keep up with the real deals in tennis, babe. :)

Ok, GrandSlammed - I'll take you seriously. I already gave you an opening (tried to, failed apparently) but you stuck a knife through it.

I don't know you, never saw you post - but I thought your first remark here quarrelsome and totally uncalled for.

Most posters - and why do you assume they're all white? Do you imply that, if you're black, you can't be rooting for a white girl? And if you imply that, what does that say about you? - most posters said: "Oops, you scared me for a sec - but funny."

Me, I'm not even a fan of Martina --- I would have reacted the same way if Venus or Serena or Lindsay or whoever of the great players would have been announced as retiring.

So yes, I thought your remark deserved a "Tsk" (first time I used that sound, btw). And then, when you failed to say "ok - my remark wasn't that hot either," I could not possibly say anything else BUT "Tsk."

Merry Christmas, by the way. :)
