I Gotta Get Outta This Racket

"I can’t take this off-the-wall job anymore. It’s not my fault; I try to give good service, but I’m hamstrung all the time. I hoped I could court a sports career, but I guess I don’t have the … nerve."

One of these things is not like the others ...

Game, set and match, Stephanie T.
