The 2d Annual Kaye Kismet Mixed Up Unisex Doubles of 2012
The most popular feature of this latest version of the Kaye
Kracked Konkrete Klassic is that it is all over in one day! Last year by
Sixish. This year 4:30PM. There is no need to have separate draws for men and
women divisible by four. Last year, 11 men + 5 women = 16 unisex
divisible by four.
Again, the Inn and Surf’s Out came through with Gift Certificates
shared by The Final Four, Jeff Kaufman & Matt Einson who defeated Brian
Muldoon & Tony Falotico. Below are pics taken by HRM Jeannie who has
been faithfully covering this event from time immemorial, which becomes shorter
with each passing year. But its better than the alternative, a plain
I have to give personal thanks to Dean De Marco, accused of
elitism, but prey to human foot injury, as is his lovely Jane. I drew him as an
opponent in two rounds, and had he played, I would never have made the semis
with Binnie, where we came back from 2-5 to lead 7-6. The 14th game
went to 3-3, and I missed match point with a backhand down the line. I
served for the 15th, and the better my serves, the luckier the returns! Sic
transit gloria mundi! In Yiddish, Garnicht’s Hilfen , very
loosely. What the hell, not bad for a Goy.
The Man of the Hour as Matt Einson, who appeared just as Dean was
due to default, with my permission, and who went on all the way to win with
Jeff Kaufman, the Triathlon Man, who played three rounds in the AM, two
hours with Art W, Gordon and Gary at Camelot, and returned to for the semis and
finals, his serve improving all the way!
Next Labor Day in Kismet for our next adventure!
