Childhood memories! - 09-07-2014, 07:07 AM

Rempe playing in the World English 8 Ball Championships is one of my earliest pool memories. He was the first pool player I really remember watching play. At the Straight Pool Hall of Fame induction ceremony last month, there was the usual video montage of clips and tributes and, as part of it, a couple of clips of Rempe playing English 8 Ball were shown. You can see the clips at http://youtu.be/hbo3S-HuWfU?t=1h40m39s

Sadly, because the sound was being captured through a wireless microphone, there is a serious sound lag but you will get to see Rempe play the small ball game.

Now, and I'm serious about this, does ANYONE out there have the footage of the coverage shown on World of Sport? I've been looking for it for many, many years. Please reply to this post or send me a PM if you can help. Thanks.

Here's a link to the tribute video that was originally shown in the video I linked to in my earlier post. This time, the sound is sync'd up properly.



Happy viewing.

Great video, it's Chinese Mandarin btw. Not Japanese. I lived there for 6 years so can understand it a little.

Wish I knew where Jim's actual Ivory Crown Jewel was!

Si
Damnit Si... if I'd known you that cue stick years ago, I'd have been loking to buy that beauty from you instead of the Carolina Custom, Kenny Murrell or some of the other cues I've bought from you over the years
