    Yep, the photographer must have shot about 300 pictures. He kept clicking and the flash would hit me every time I was returning a smashing. :p

    Naw, I'm still hovering around 220lbs. :p

    Well, not exactly. I didn't exactly pray for the geese but something to that effect; it was kind of a joke. :D

    no one was implying you to stop posting pics of your destroyed rackets :p. Great article. Man you have big arms....as ants said earlier this article sure shows the "gentler" side of you.

    Not that big, about 17", but I guess big for Badminton. :p

    Also, I'm currently using RSL Tourney # 1, pretty much exclusively. Very good shuttle at a moderate price. :)

    SirDink even have to wear an UnderArmour Garment. Imagine if its a normal shirt or something.. it will definately tear once he flexes his muscles or going for a smash. :)
