More of a leather strap but def would like a croc strap
I think I have changed my strap 3 times since I got it eleven years ago. One time it broke on where it is attached on the clock, the other two times I fell asleep wearing it while having a fever. Sweat like a pig and complete annihilated the strap :( I think the original strap from Longines is like 130 dollars or so.

I made split pea soup this afternoon in a thrifted pot (Calphalon), and the only ingredients that were not free were the salt and lemon juice (the school district has been giving out free food products to families with kids during this whole COVID thing). It’s a good thing our preschooler likes pea soup.

i'm bored and the thrifts still suck for the most part. so i bought a busted tennis racquet for $3.99. the best part is i don't even play tennis. LOL!

it would have been a nice flip, Head LiquidMetal Instinct Tour XL... but was totally "McEnro'ed". someone got pissy and slammed it on the court, tweaking the head. but for $4, it was worth buying to not regret leaving it behind. pretty damn sure it was a waste of $4. haha!

The only time a cracked racket is worth anything is if it was used by a name pro and it can be tied to that pro. All pro’s rackets are customized so that’s desirable to racket collectors.

Has anyone ever come across a leather bag/briefcase with only one strap, and on the one side of the bag instead of on top? It isn't missing a strap, so clearly it's meant to be held this way.

i also bought this possibly 90's Prince Graphite Michael Chang Longbody for $4. i can clean most of the gunk off. maybe i should try and hit some balls around? there are courts right up the street from us.

they did have a Wilson Pro Staff Six One 95 for $10, but it was beat to shit. anywho, the moral of the story. look for decent tennis racquets. only issue in selling online is if you don't know jack shit about tennis, you might be selling a trashed racquet, but don't know any better.

Sounds like a clutch bag

I thought so too, but it has an attached strap on the side of the bag, not a strap at the end with a loop.

Picture a kind of flat handle for a briefcase on top, but put on the side. Also, this one expands to about 4-5" when full. Just not sure whether it's a type of clutch, briefcase, etc.

That might be worth some $$$. Those still have a cult following. Great stick 💪
