Tennis Humor - The Gift Of Making People Laugh At The Game Of TennisWritten by glenn sheiner
To those of us who love to play game of tennis, it is competition, athletic challenge and potential for artistic shot making that usually gets us going emotionally. There's little time for tennis humor as we focus on ripping that next shot for a winner.
But take a step back or just start watching some tennis matches at your club and you'll begin to see humorous situations that abound in our game. Of course, just like mother-in-law jokes are a staple of marriage humor, dysfunctional tennis dynamics are source of most tennis humor. And tennis humor in form of tennis jokes or tennis cartoons on mugs, tshirts, mousepads, or greeting cards make great tennis gifts.

1. The married mixed doubles team. Need I say more? This classic dynamic has caused guffaws at best of times and divorces at worst. And for those still in dating mode -- tread very carefully!
2. The poseurs -- look great in their new tennis clothes which they claim they received as tennis gifts from a well known-touring pro, carry at least 3 of latest hi-tech rackets, and are epitome of style until they have to hit that first ball. Of course, if truly desperate, they will feign injury while opening up a new can of balls to avoid public display of their atrocious strokes.

They are wonderful creatures and all greyhounds deserve better. I am out of work at moment but I will do everything I can do to give these animals a home. The reason I gave up was because I could not sit around and watch what I call sheer cruelty. I have seen an awful lot of perfectly healthy animals put to sleep basically due to injures, too old for racing or just not fast enough and have outlived there sell by date. The owners and trainers of this small minority are gutless and only one thing rules them, money.These are truly wonderful creatures and a loving home is all they need, sadly thousands of these animals never get that far. It saddens me .Everything in greyhound racing is quite often hidden from
