Life is spinning out of control! Lost my life savings betting on the outcome of Rocky’s second fight with Mr. T! How could I have known Balboa would come back to win it? CURSE YOU BOXING GODS!!!

Got the beers and the liquors in with Guy in the UNLV Jacket the other day. Who’d have known he got that much better at pool? He beat me the first four games in a row, that’s with me only screwing up the first game but then playing well after that and he beat me anyway. I came back with three straight until I finally lost again in a closely contested game that would have evened the series up 4-4 if I had won it.

As a matter of fact the turnaround began like this: UNLV is up 4-0 and nothing goes in on the break. I have an open table but no obvious shot. Not wanting to relinquish the table I call a solid ball into another solid with the second ball caroming off a stripe and being pocketed into the right corner at the footspot. It goes and I end up running a five more balls in a row giving me a solid lead en route to my first win.

Anyway back to the point that UNLV is leading 5-3. We make an agreement at that point that whoever loses has to make the title of his blog that the opponent is the greatest pool player of all time. A terrible fate that would be since we’re both shameless egoists and I am happy to report that we somehow ended up tied 7-7 and I survived having to write a lauditory blog by the skin of my teeth. I’m sorry to report that we ended up leaving before Nice Rack made it out but of course time was of the essense and since UNLV was the out of towner we were on his agenda. At least I can remember going home this time which is more than I can say for the day I hung out shooting pool and drinking liquor with Bernard. I had one of those mysterious deals where one moment I’m at the bar shooting pool and the next thing I dig I wake up at home and the sun is up. I think it’s magical Christmas demons!

    I tried to make it out Mexi, you were supposed to call when you left.

    My fault Count Rackula. I was under the impression you would be there as soon as you could shake your dude. My bad! 🙁

    Bad Mexi.

    Nice Rack, I think you should make him cry for that.
