Swetka’s sweet teaming of tennis and fantasy football

Weiss, Swetka, Arnold September 25, 2021

Two of the members of my fantasy football league are tennis professionals, John Swetka and Kenny Arnold.
They are good players and they own or manage a tennis shop, Swetka’s in Los Altos or Mountain View, on El Camino just south of El Monte.
Ken went to my high school and in fact the neighborhood we moved to in 5th grade was the neighborhood his family moved to a decade earlier.
Swetka I’ve only known since about 2012, when I rejoined a league I had co-founded in 1980. Swetka’s father founded the store and was famous for being ranked in his age group.

John has Swetka’s Sweet Team formerly Swetka’s TD Team.
Ken has Kenny Second Half formerly Kenny’s Bling Bling.
I have The Duffy Dogs — it’s named for my dog Duffy but is also a Michigan State / Bubba Smith reference. I was previously Beneath the Underdog (for Mingus), As the Backs Go Tearing By (for Dartmouth) and The Chip Hoopers (for Gunn tennis star, the current tight end of the Clevelands, and a former talent agent and nature photographer, my hometown of Chicago, Chi, and my love of basketball).
We all look like we still could get the student rate, right?
