Please Take My Money as I’m Too Stupid to Have It

We were all at the spot shooting pool. Everyone was there: Dave, Ken, Lauri, Old Cheating Joe, and Rever. I was kicking back waiting for my turn at the table when I saw a fish. This wiseass Mexican dude who had come in one day and tried to hustle Shawn Allison. Now for those who […]

Yahoo! Pool

I was playing Yahoo! Pool online last night when I noticed that TB was on (I had just activated my Messenger for like the 3rd time in three years). Remembering his offer to play me in pool, I fired off a message. After a quick affirmation, we were playing a rated game (I was 1400-something […]

Giant Draws!!!

I can blog about this because I think I finally killed my inability to get drawback on the cue ball demon. For years my pool game suffered from my inability to master this shot. Basically it’s like any other shot in pool, you want to make your object ball in a pocket but in doing […]

Pool Hustling

Went to the Green Door with Bernard. Won $3 betting on Bernard and $5 betting on myself (twice). Bought courvoisier with winning. Working out of the office today so unable to blog. Don’t even have time to read Aiden’s comments. Hold it down for me. Peace!

The Pool Team Comes Back

A while back I blogged about my pool team breaking up and going their seperate ways. It was a nice run, in one year together we learned a lot. I wasn’t mad about it. Then this past week the two players I thought most likely to jet have expressed the desire to come back with […]

Pool Tournament

Dave hasn’t been on in a while so I can only presume he met with an untimely death. Anyhoo, here is my yesterday in a nutshell: I was one under par coming onto the 15th hole and I’m only two strokes out of the lead. I am playing the best golf of my life and […]

The Fires of Practical Application

Last night I was shooting pool when gvslim walked into the spot. Now, you would think that after the acrimonious debate we had in the comment section of the Prisoners, War, and Ethics post, we would be ready to kill each other. For those who don’t know, this is the debate wherein I referred to […]

Addiction

Last night I played a pool player who subs for the team that just finished number one on the Monday night BCA pool league team in Lansing. Rever is the dog! In fact, Dave who is beating me down 16-6 in the Chicken Wars, is his protege. But last night I put together a very […]
