Joke time

I spot this joke about badminton... Wondering if it is funny... I decide to post it!! Hope you like it.

So it is like this:

Title: Have a drink

A badminton player and a tennis player get into a car accident, and it's a bad one. Both cars are totally demolished, but amazingly neither of them are hurt. After they crawl out of their cars, the badminton player spots the other's tennis gear and says, "So you're a tennis player, that's interesting. I'm a badminton player ... Gosh! Just look at our cars, there's nothing left, but fortunately we are unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and live together in peace for the rest of our days."

The tennis player replied: "I agree with you completely; this must be a sign from God!"

The badminton player continued, "And look at this - here's another miracle. My car is completely demolished but this bottle of whisky didn't break. Surely God wants us to drink this and celebrate our good fortune."

Then he hands the bottle to the tennis player. The tennis layer nods his head in agreement, opens it and takes a few big gulps from the bottle, then hands it back to the badminton player.
The badminton player takes the bottle, immediately puts the cap back on, and hands it back to the tennis player. The tennis player asks, "Aren't you having any?"

The badminton player replies, "No. I think I will just wait for the police to turn up and sort this out ..."

The second joke is:
Title: The tennis player prayer

Please don't let me be so nervousWhen I toss the ball for service.

Give me speed and strength unhaulting,Aces and no double-faulting.

Instill in me the skill and dashOf Agassiie, Williams, Roddick and Ashe.

When a high lob starts to fall,Must I always miss the ball?

Lord, I know you could, I'm sure,Find me a Tennis Elbow cure.

With the guidance from above,Never let me fall in 'love.'

And, Lord, while on matters of this sortPlease let me find an open court!!

Simon Santoso

Hmm.. I think I want to talk about Simon Santoso. He is from Tangkas Jakarta badminton club and he is born on 29 july in Tegal 1985, central Java. Hmm... actually I don't really know about him. However he once played in the Singapore Open 2008. And he played in Indonesia Open during the finals against Sony Dwi Kuncoro. However he lost.
The main thing is not whether he lost a not but whether he is determined and I think he is. If I am not wrong, I heard that he studied in Australia. He was the winner at Chinese Taipei Grand Prix Gold. Simon is currently world no 7 now. I just that's all I know about him. If I got anymore information, I will add in again..:)

SGS Electrik

I know this picture has nothing got to do with today's sharing.....
But this is the spot where I always drop alot of shuttles as I play against the wall....
And after coming home from SGS, I would rest here because the floor is so cooling. Hence, that spot is the dirtiest at home because it consist of me sweat... HAHA...:):)
I don't know what to say but human beings are just too great to be described. I was browsing the internet when I spot this website. I read through it and... Let me extract this for you guys.

"Pada final tunggal remaja puteri, akan berhadapan Elizabeth dari SGS Elektrik Bandung dengan Suci Rizki Andini yang mewakili PB Mutiara.(*)"

I shall make a direct translation of it. This is what it wrote: In the finals of the women's single, Elizabeth from SGS Elektrik Bandung would be playing against Suci Rizki Andini from PB Mutiara.

The club, PB Djarum organized a badminton competition called Sirkuit Nasional 2008. And as you guys read, Elizabeth gets into the final. She is I think 13 this year. Since I was from SGS Elektrik, I shall tell you guys what I think I know about her. She is a great player. And seriously, when Jimar tells me she is 12 last year, I got a shock. I am not trying to humilate anyone but she certainly look so mature. The way she play her game, the way she took care of herself in the hostel in front of the training ground. She really is so mature. There were clothes sort of like hanging in front of the hostel and also swimming pool in front of the training ground. I want to say that the swimming pool is 超级 dirty. The water is GREEN. YUCKS.... Ok, I am sorry to say that but it certainly is dirty. And walking deeper, there is a canary. Place where you keep birds and also a FUTSAL (something like the street soccer). Then in the badminton training ground, if you walk until the end of the court, there are basketball courts where you can see handsome guys playing basketball. It was kinda of cool being there. But, My mum wants to transfer me out of SGS Eletrik because she say's it was dirty:(. But nevermind:)

Anyway, SGS Eletrik standard is about the same as PB mutiara and PB Tangkas. PB Djarum and PB Jaya Raya is kinda of a better standard. I don't know why? Maybe, I will try to find out:) Oh, I think maybe PB Djarum have more coaches. Anyway, I don't know why.

Actually, coachess in SGS Electrik is quite a lot too. And we have a nice senior. His name is Willy. He always accompany the coach called Pak Hendi. (Seriously sorry if I spell you guys name wrongly:( ) And Pak Hendi is a really funny coach. While training, he was like singing this song about love. Its really really funny as he always forgotten the lyrics and keeps on repeating the same stanza.

Trying there is hard as there are many great players. In order to stand out from the rest, you need to train a lot. That is also the reason why athletics cannot be career men or women. YOU CAN ONLY CHOOSE BETWEEN BADMINTON OR WORK:( Yap...

I think I shall end here... Next time, I shall talk more about BADMINTON:)
