My 7 year old got to play SVB - 09-30-2017, 09:42 PM

So we arrived today at the High Desert Shootout in Wyoming.... My son will play tomorrow in the Juniors. Today he got a chance to meet a few players, Rodney Morris, Corey Deuel again (twice in the past 2 weeks), Mike Massey, and Shane Van Boening (SVB).

Jin wanted to play SVB and asked for a game, unfortunately he was about to get into a match, but later on, we saw SVB walking around so Jin went and asked again. SVB went to an empty table and set up a rack..... My son was very nervous but managed to focus, was shaking for a whilee afterwards but super thrilled.... He loves his new Pechauer cue and was doing his best to stay focused on all the fundamentals Samm has been teaching him.

Here is the video:

Age 7, eh? So his Fargo rating is now about 800.

(memorable occasion, for sure)

Shane has a long history of taking time for kids check out Shane and Sky here.

Now Shane and Sky are teammates on Team USA.

Pool needs more like players like Shane for sure.

Yep, he's gonna be top 15 in the world after that performance.

I can't believe Shane tried to shark him by walking around while he was shooting!

Then he dogs the easy 3-cushion bank on the 8 in the side!


"He knew what those jubilant crowds did not know, but could have learned from books; that the plague bacillus never dies or disappears for good...and that perhaps the day would come when, for the bane and the enlightening of men, it would rouse up its rats again and send them forth to die in a happy city."

We always talk about pool not being a major sport.
If you hear stories like this, you can also see the positiv sides. Everyone of us can go to a tournament and have a chance to meet our idols, have a quick chat, take a foto and sometimes even play a quick rack with them.

What are the chances to meet Federer, Naymar or some other sport star?
Sometimes it is quite nice, that we are a small comunity!

Anyway, I'm happy for your son and I wish him all the best for the Junior tournament!

That is really cool. Your son plays really good. Seems like he really picked up on the game quick (after only 4 months of playing).

That was really cool of Shane to shoot with him, but I assume any of the players would have done the same.

Kid's got more talent and more game than
most adults already. I know that was a big
thrill for you both. Best of luck to you and
your son in the future. Thanks for the video.

If only I did not think of my pool playing idols as gods, then maybe I could get up the nerve to walk up to one of them and say hello (or anything, lol). Had my chance 3 years in a row, while living in Louisville. The Derby city classic was pretty exciting though (even though I was so shy, and felt really out of place there).
