Would you consider a person a pool nut if he postponed sex to play pool?

Funny you should mention that, I taught all three of my kids both numbers and colors using pool balls. It was surprising how fast they learned.

That's likely 'cause you were holding their allowance on them :D

Dave, who is reminded of being a pool nut every time I notice my perminantly stained bridge hand ... so I'm lazy and don't clean the table enough ... I pay the price !

You find yourself constantly disappointed by hotels that advertise 'Pool" on their roadside sign.

1) 5 out of 5 are poolplayers. If they weren't when I met them, I taught them.

2) Don't we all?

3) I can name the 13 colonial states and a poolroom in each!

4) Events always involve relatives and sir, POOL is definately better than kin!

5) Um, my vacations ARE pool events

If you have a callus/ bump on your middle finger....

If the place is closing but you gamble into the morning without a problem...

You say 5 for 50 or 7 for 100...Last 2 or 3 or Orange crush and people understand what your talking about...

You speak of going road and someone suggests you start with the one right out the window... :D

*you know what year you bought your favorite stick, but don't know what year you kid was born...

*you can describe your cue in detail, colors, etc., but can't remember the color of your wife's eyes...

You're a pool nut if:

... you think "merchant banking" means a game of bank pool between two shopkeepers

... you gave up posting in threads about deflection for lent

... you think Virginia Slims is a pool player

... you rented the movie "Earthquake" figuring it would be about Keith McCready

... you watched the TV show "The Rifleman" expecting to see Buddy Hall

The only thing that helps quit drinking is playing for money.

When you see a sunrise, the first thing you wonder is why nobody shut the blinds yet.

Closing time is only a suggestion.

...Away from pool table, you make different bridges subconsciously with your bridge hand.

...You can remember dozens of cuemakers and recognize their cues but you cannot always remember the names of your relatives, and especially in-laws :)

You are close on this one, Mjantti. If when you flip someone off you can't avoid your thumb and forefinger touching, you got it bad.

Ok this is it... Warning this may hit home with some people.....You might be a pool nut if.....Your pool cues are worth more $$$$ than the car you are riding in..... :D

Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about. :)

This was sent to me by e-mail years ago. I don't know who wrote it or where it first appeared, but I liked it enough to save it. :

You know you're a pool nut when people stop asking 'What are you doing tonight?". When you spend more time at the pool hall than at work, school and home combined. When your laundry room smells like a pool hall. When everyone in the pool hall knows your name (even if you don't know theirs).
When closing time doesn't apply to you. When your cue travels with you regardless of your plans for the evening. When you sleep in the pool hall for a few hours instead of going home. When you own more than one book about pool (or Zen for all that). When you have pool related dreams. When things outside the pool room are referred to as "strong" or "rough action". If you've ever said anything along the lines of 'McDonald's gives Burger King the 7'. When people in the pool hall get worried that you weren't there the night before. When you're in the pool hall on holidays; when the thought of dating a non-pool player is insane to you. When the first place people look for you is at the pool hall. When you go through withdrawals if you didn't play pool that day. When you go to an out of town tournament and as soon as you get back in town, you go to the local pool room instead of home. When you're at the local diner at 5 in the morning, because you are up from the night before. When you turn your non-pool playing friends into pool addicts; when you start seeing pool as life instead of a game. When you are still talking about pool on the way home.When cigarette boxes become representation of a table to demonstrate a shot you had. When skittles kinda look like a nine ball rack. When you see a pool table on TV the urge to go play is worse than the urge to smoke when you see someone light up. When a bridge is no longer something you drive over; a bank is not a building full of money; a tip is not something you leave a waiter; a diamond is not a jewel; firewood is not a log; draw has nothing to do with a piece of paper; chalk is not found in a classroom; powder is not for hygiene; you may have pockets in your pants, but they are not the important ones; a rack is not on a girl's chest; a shaft is not a penis; and balls are NEVER hairy. And when you shake your head while reading this. :D

You're a pool nut if you have "friends" at the pool room and you know their high runs in 8-ball, 9-ball and straight pool and know their high finishes in latest tournaments but get to know their last name from the tournament chart.

You know how many cues your fellow player has owned but don't know how many kids he/she has back home.

If your fellow poolplayers trips and falls over or does something similar clumsy thing, you snap your fingers or tap at something as in mid-game "nice shot" -gesture.

if you think a lap dance is your 'Tom Cruise' type victory trip around the pool table.
