Earl Moment US Open Knockout round - 11-14-2017, 11:27 AM

In a losers side match with Earl & Gabe Owen.....the pearl did something I'd not seen before and it felt like a move, even tho it was Earls break. He..... Earl....stood on his left foot only and broke the rack.

I'm surprised Earl showed his secret "Flamingo" break. If things get really bad, he may do the "Crouching Lion, Hidden Dragon" break.

Or even the "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Shaft" break made famous by Sigfried and Roy.

There was a tournament where Earl was playing Efren, classic match-up there. Efren shot a shot one-handed for some reason. Earl went nuts. I mean more than usual.

If Earl went into a match wearing nothing but a diaper, a motorcycle helmet and platform disco shoes, I will only be mildly surprised.

But you gotta admit, Earl can probably pull that look off

Whatever works. Don't any of you have lucky socks, or lucky boxer shorts, eat the same
thing for lunch? I think the tape, the weights, the frankencue, the flamingo break, the diaper and platform soles,
all part of Earl's pre-shot routine. I think it's a luck/karma thing for him

I've seen him pull out q-tips and clean his ears in the middle of a match...

The reason he does that, occasionally, is because the constrictions of all the other pads and weights over the body cause some blood loss in some extremities. When one leg goes a bit numb, he may use the other for the break. Or, any other shot, for that matter.

All the best,
WW

Has anyone seen his cue butt wrap and hand splint close up.

Was he wearing his beekeeper outfit and breaking with his 11 foot long cue?

Does he really surprise anyone anymore?

I love Earl. I've seen him in person at many tournaments.
I'm really psyched that he's playing in a small tournament in my area this weekend!!!
Last year the equipment was far from top notch.
I warned the TD!!! Lol


9' Diamond Paragon!
In training for the "Senior Division" By then I might actually be decent! Still love Earl.
