    yes! they played TENNIS!

    According to the BBC, the accused airplane bomb plotters played tennis.

    TENNIS! :wallbash:
    I mean, COME ON!!! how could that be news worthy, does this mean that anyone who plays TENNIS (TENNIS FFS! ) is now a terror suspect?! Should we all be looking out for tennis playing bad people?
    How do we tell a terrorist apart from the rest of the world?.....

    TENNIS!! :grr:

    It beggers belief, the rest of the news story is just backround to what the suspects are suspected of doing. The main story is, THEY PLAYED TENNIS!!! :duh:

    This just proves that people who play racquetball or Squash are better people. :D

    But seriously, the stuff that passes for news these days is just sad.

    It's just a line at the end of a 1000 word article, it doesn't suggest any connection between tennis and terrorism.
    All it does is paint a picture of their life during the bomb plot.

    My Ex played tennis and left me for a tennis player... they are all evil! terrorists, no. On another note, if they played tennis whilst discussing their plots, surely someone would have heard them? You have to shout quite a bit to be heard over a tennis court, especially whilst playing.

    Maybe. Best hand yourself in to the relevant authorities and find out.

    Calm down now... deep breaths. As yodasarmpit says:
    Basically (and I can't believe I am actually explaining this), the hideous act of coldly plotting the murder of hundreds of innocent people is strikingly juxtaposed by the casual, lighthearted activity of a game of tennis engaged in while plotting the crime. It is meant to illustrate (somewhat effectively) their mindset: what a bunch of psycho's these guys really are.
