In my case, it's tennis: Yesterday, today and forever Yesterday, I remember lying on a sunny deck after clambering out of the pool at my parents' country club. We kids didn't need recliners and fuzzy towels. Instead, we soaked up the warmth of pockmarked cement while falling into sleepy reveries listening to the sounds of tennis through adjacent fences. My parents were tennis aficionados, so as a child I was exposed to the game (then played in uniform whites) which abided by a firmly polite "sporting" code.
