There is a phrase in racquetball called "Red Tushy". That's where you play a much more experienced player and get royally spanked. I assure you that I'm going to have trouble sitting down today. Still, I will love another chance to play Benjamin. Thanks Greg for taking this live action shot.

Thanks Greg for this (clame) amazing capture of my off-the-wall return which was no-look-through-my-legs!

Red Tushy can also be the result of playing an inexperienced player. I can't count the number of times I've served and someone has hit me in the back, or the butt, or the head. You see where I'm going with this. I really like your theme week so far. Keep up the good work.

I've always wanted to play racquetball, but never got around to doing it... probably because no one I know is interested in it. Someday perhaps.

Diggin' this shot for sure.

I used to play a ton because we have courts here at my office. About 15 years ago, I played this old Santa Claus lookin dude over maintenance. He whipped me so bad @MrsOzzy started callin me 'red ass'.

So, the strategy when this happens is that you start hitting them square in the back with the ball as many times as possible (that is when they aren't hitting the kill shot on you). The key is that you have to apologize perfusely every time.

Go in peace

folliclejuju says:
@carynorton that sounds awesome! i love diving and when combined with a bid of slide across the floor, i can cover better than half court to retrieve a shot! let's play sometime! early morning is best for me. where do you play?

@aaronb - if you ever play at the maryland farms ymca, be sure to leave plenty of room for all shot angles for the guy behind you or they will purposely drill you.

@aaronb - lol, no, dude, if my shot will potentially head your way in any possible sense of the shot, i reduce power by 60%. i hit the fellow above three times, but he didn't have a welt from any of them. figuring that he beat me 15-0...i was desperate, basically. in any kind of normal game, i'm very unlikely to hit anyone. as far as drilling someone hard enough to give them a donut...it just doesn't happen from the strings of my racket. also factored into hitting benjamin...i'm more than 6 months out of practice and fired zero warm up shots before we played. given at least an hour of alley drills, i probably might not have even tapped him with the ball at all. like i said, my red tushy was extremely desperate to return (as i was at the time due to lack of practice completely unable to put the ball any lower than 4 feet up...kills were out of the question).

@aaronb - i gave up on mfymca. those guys aren't interested in good games. they're only interested in winning an puffing themselves up.

I've been meaning to play this since moving to Florida… a decade ago. I even bought a racquet not long after the move, but it still hasn't happened.

Awesome! Well, my Thursday invite to you coming back down to McCreary's is still open. In either case, I intend to stay in touch with you.
