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 so you want to hit the cue ball so low that it’s backspinning while it’s on its way to the object ball. When it’s done right it knocks your object ball in the pocket and then, due to the backspin, the cue ball rolls back toward you rather than moving forward to follow the shot. Sometimes you need this for position on your next shot.

Try as I might for years I was never able to get the draws. I knew where I was supposed to hit the cue and how I was supposed to follow through but for some reason I just kept messing up. That was until very recently. Lately something just clicked and now I’m actually hitting the spot where I’m aiming and I’m getting draws all over the table.

Last night I was at the bar and looked to one side of the table. Yep, already got those draws. Looked to the other side. Already got the draws over there too. I’m getting all kinds now but the other day was the best. I drew the cue ball back half the length of the table. That means I’m talking about three feet across. I don’t think I need to tell you, my friends, that those are some giant draws. And I’m up there hitting them!

I’m talking about this because getting the draws has been a long time coming for me. I was beginning to lose hope. Now that I’m getting them I’m a bit more relaxed and I’ve got a little more swaggar in my step. But if you don’t believe me, then bring yo momma to the pool table whenever you want and have her play me. And you just see if I don’t get those draws! HOOYAH!

    You can’t even beat “D” for a bucket of chicken!

    “D” is always trying to get big draws too. You should see the waitress named Kim!

    Those are tough shots, I can get them but not consistantly, sounds like my entire pool game. I finally found a good place to play pool out here. Everytime I go I pretty much rule the table until this weird looking dude named D.J. comes in, then it’s game over. The dude isn’t even that sweet I just can’t beat him. I gotta get over the mental hump! Maybe I should start a 100 game saga over a Sushi buffet with him or something…

    I beat Rever the other day by running out a bunch of shots and then I hit the Michael Jackson head move and said “HEE HEE!” Then I wouldn’t play him again and he was mad about it. So I played him again and he made sure not to miss even once. He table ran me and then said “HEE HEE!” Mine was funnier though. Ponytail of doom indeed.

  5. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    Did he whip his ponytail around when he HEE HEEd?

  6. Mexigogue says:

    No. It was actually an angry HEE HEE, if you can believe that. The man does not like to lose.

  7. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    He can’t be a worse loser than The “D”. 🙂

  8. Mexigogue says:

    We all hate to lose but we manifest it differently. Me, I’ll smile and shake your hand but inside I’m like FUCK YOU FUCK YOU DIE DIE!!! Rever won’t even shake your hand. You can read the “D”‘s whole expression.

    Man we didn’t get that house we wanted. Some rich ass clown came in and offered 10 grand over list price and offered to pay in cash. Man if the liberals still ruled the Supreme Court, White House, House of Reps, Senate, AZ govenorship, AZ house of reps and the AZ sentate. That guy would have payed alot more in taxes and not had that much cash then we could have got the house. Damn Reoublicans!! Anyways we are off to talk to a builder tonight that ought to be interesting UNLV in a Brand new house! yeah!!!

    Hey man, if you had a blog you could blog about that janitor dude who wanted to know if you could hook him up with a job and he said “So you get paid big bucks for just sitting there and hitting keys?” and you were like “Yeah, I get paid for just sitting here hitting random keys.”

    I like UNLV’s reply. but it really gets me when someone says something like that around me. It’s like just how far up your ass is your head anyway, if you can’t figure out there is more going on than just typing stuff? People that clueless need to be sterilized. God only knows what they’d do to a child in their care.

    If life is a big video game, God’s got that guy’s intellect set to “meager”.

  16. Ghandi from the "D" says:

    Hey I just remembered something just this minute!

    Rae is fine as hell!!

    Okay that is all for today I am on vacation.

  17. Mexigogue says:

    She’s au-ight. hehe!!

  18. Ghandi from the "D" says:

    Okay I have to wait for a call so here it goes.

    Rever was pissed off that you beat him. He will make sure you remember that you cracked on him the next 30 games tyhat you play with him. I know because i made the mistake of doing Mike Dawg moves on him after a victory. He punished me for the next 100 games.

  19. Mexigogue says:

    Hell, I beat Lex and instead of apologizing I shouted out NEXT!!!! I think Lex is gonna whup on me 30 times too.

  20. rae says:

    Thanks D- sorry I was moving yesterday!! I am really tired today and super busy at work but will talk to ya’ll tomorrow more.

  21. Mexigogue says:

    Hey, I don’t get a thanks too? I clearly said you were au-ight! You must have missed that.

  22. ipus says:

    To get the back spin.. you don’t follow through. You smash it low and to the side and pull back fast

  23. mexigogue says:

    You’re drunk. When your cue and object ball are far apart the only way you are going to get drawback is to fire that cue on its way backspinning all the way there so it will WACK and come right back at you. You don’t get that unless you follow through.

    Now if your cue and object are close off to begin with then your way will work. But I’m talking about hard-to-get draws. Not really easy draws. Come on, I have to have some standards!
