  1. naughty T....urbane gentleman said

    I thought WozIzWoz’s bagelling of Crazy Patty was pretty noteworthy too. But perhaps just in a Yay my Pool kind of way. It is also a little bit notable because the first time that they met back in ’05 Patty handed the 15 year old Woz a bagel in the second set..think she Woz and iz not happy to have returned the favour?

    All I can say to Richard is, FUCKING FINALLY!
