During our final match today mts388 made a remark that inspired the following.  My apologies to any fans of "The Man from La Mancha" from which much was stolen.

The Impossible Shot

To make the impossible shot
To deuce the unbeatable foe
To bear the nets and edges lost
To run where the barriers say no
To correct the mistaken score 
To stroke smooth and strong on all
To swing when your arms are too weary
To return the unreturnable ball

This is my quest, to return that ball
No matter how fast, no matter I fall
To swing through the shot like the bravest of the brave
To be willing to run into the wall for a point winning save

And I know that if I'll only be true to this glorious quest
That my mind will be will be calm and serene
When match does come to end
And the sport will be better for this
That one player, low rated and with bad form
Still strove, with his last ounce of strength
To return the unreturnable ball

Mark - Who is tilting at windmills every time he enters a TT tournament

Thank you for not saying anything about coming back and beating me in game five after being down
 8-0.  It would be embarrassing if forum members found out about that match.

You're playing the best I've ever seen you play.  Although your footwork may not be where you want it, it is very very good.  It was also nice to have B-H Man there.  Both of you tried to give me charity games and matches, but I wasn't able to take your gifts.  Maybe today I'll earn some games.
