    I used to love tennis so much. As I watched it on TV, I constantly heard commentators say "Juice" and often would camera caught a spectator drinking orange juice. And I was proud when they said for example "15 all" or "30 all"; what a sportsmanship when even spectators get points for watching.
    But the crisis knocked to our door, too.
    When I finally managed to attempt a tennis match, I heard "juice" all right, not from commentators but from the umpire himself, but no one served juice to me.
    Golden old days are gone with wind.

    Great Story!

    Maybe someone should organise the writing contest, since Silverstriker can't do that this year.

    I thought 'juice' was some kind of football (American) thing.
