The Most Miserable Doctor on Earth

Posted 11-04-2017 at 08:47 AM by Nostroke
Updated 11-09-2017 at 03:09 AM by Nostroke

I went to see this Dr for a stomach issue maybe 15 years ago. A relative was seeing him so i gave him a shot. The appointment was for 8AM and i walked in there with my morning coffee and he called me into his office. I sat in front of his desk and put my completely dry paper cup of coffee on it.

He went nuts-yelled something at me and left the room to get a towel to wipe up nothing-literally nothing-zero moisture. While he was out there I heard him say to his Secty “Next thing you...

The Ogre of Palm Beach County

Posted 11-04-2017 at 08:41 AM by Nostroke

In my early years wintering in Fla, i rented an efficiency from an old guy in his 80’s named Chet. He was an ex engineer who had specialized in heat carrying pipes and their couplings. Brilliant guy who still had it in many ways but who also had a bit of dementia in certain areas.
Evidently he had previously rented his place to a bunch of criminals who used his garage to store stolen furniture. When they were caught, after a chase, the neighborhood (a good one) was filled with police cars,...

Even tho Tony is by far my favorite one pocket player in a race to 40 against Dennis I don't think he has more than a 25% chance to win. I think the main reason he won the first match was in part to Dennis playing w a...

You haven't been playing much, have you?

Went to the pool hall to watch a major annual tournament. The first person I spoke with was a player from the Bay Area, whom I haven't seen in years. He said, "you haven't been playing much lately, have you?" I admitted this was true, and asked how he knew...

VNEA Rules Question

I'm giving the benefit of the doubt that BCA rules were applied in a VNEA division, but the ref is still standing by their decision which they seem to have pulled freshly from their rectum.

Reflections on performance

Posted 03-26-2017 at 08:54 AM by thelmstetter

Just got back late last night from the 2017 VA state 10-ball. I had a great time although the end result was disappointing. Every time I go to a pool tournament I like to reflect back and learn something valuable. This is just some of my observations.
I heard Earl Strickland once describe high level pool as playing with controlled aggression. I like adding intensity so high level pool is played with intensity and controlled aggression. You have to be extremely focused and committed to performing...

Hit em soft

Posted 03-26-2017 at 08:52 AM by thelmstetter

After every tournament that I play in I make it a habit to look at what I can learn from the experience. One of the things that I have noticed over time is that good players tend to hit the balls more softly. This may not always be the case but in general good players and professional players hit the balls softer. They play the ball at “pocket speed” when possible. Even though most shots should be hit softly there are still times when force is needed. I thought I would make a list of reasons why...

Another Pale Male Story

Posted 01-12-2017 at 09:03 AM by Nostroke
Updated 04-03-2017 at 03:28 AM by Nostroke

Way before the babies leave the nest, the hawk parents stop spoon feeding them- they just drop off food in the nest and let the kids tear it up and eat. So anyway, years back on the maiden flight, or one shortly thereafter, one of the kids smashed right into a building and broke off his beak-the top part.

Pale Male has to feed the kids the first 4-5 weeks or so after they leave the nest and in the process teaches them how to hunt. So he drops off half a pigeon in front of ‘No Beak’...

The night I was arrested for reckless driving when I was walking.

Posted 01-06-2017 at 12:32 AM by gregcantrall

This might take a while. It all started at a scotch doubles League match. My wife and I did not see eye-to-eye on how things had been going that night. I decided it might just be better to walk the mile and a half home rather than it being in the car together was not an option.
So after about a half a mile down lumbia Boulevard headed towards the blue Bridge. As I am approaching the mini market on the left a police car pulls in. The two officers get out and put their backs against the wall...

She Swings

Posted 12-16-2016 at 08:39 AM by Nostroke
Updated 12-16-2016 at 09:54 AM by Nostroke

When i was in kindergarten, i use to walk to school of course-across a major thoroughfare by the way. I would also go over there to play until i was about 10 or so.

They had a heavy duty swing set as most elementary schools do and I will never forget-there was this one girl who could swing higher than anyone- male, female, adult, whatever. She went 2 feet higher than anyone else I’d say. When you were 100 yds away you knew if she was on those swings-I never knew her name but she...

changing break at us open;

Posted 10-04-2016 at 04:55 PM by 1sttbone

the records put up by our player can only be protected by not changing the rules every time a player perfects the game with relentless practice and devotion..there will always be a favorite, and what makes you think they won't figure out the new rack position. hopefully were not trying to protect records. lets make history not protect it. your comments please.

Getting back into the swing of things

Posted 09-30-2016 at 07:50 PM by gunzby

Two and a half years ago I was regularly beating the 9 ball ghost, I was cashing in regional tournaments and was progressing very quick. I was doing all of this on 2-3 days of practice at best.

Work decided they needed me more than I needed a life outside of work. Suddenly I had zero time for pool for the next year and a half. I was working 60-72 hours a week. On the odd week that I only worked my normal 48 I was so far behind or exhausted that I still didn't play.
