ghost ballYep, I remember it ghost ball and I used to have that magazine but I loaned it to a friend and never got it back. So much has happened in my life since that tournament that I don't know if I'll be able to play that well again. Actually, my first match of that tournament I played horrible, I think it went hill/hill and I got lucky to win. I remember Lou "Machine Gun" Butera and his son played in that tourney as well. Morro Paez and I had some words during that tournament and I think it just fueled me enough to win. He then carried it over into the next tournament and called a foul on me that really got me going. In the final against Ernesto, who is maybe the nicest guy I ever met on a table, we both played well and took advantage of the few mistakes that were made. I made some bad position plays but seemed to get out when I had to. If I remember correctly, the last match was talked about in that magazine. Other than that ghost ball, I don't remember. Thanks for bringing it up. Peace, John.

Last weekend I was helping my mom clean up her garage and I came across that magazine. If you want it, it's yours. All I ask is a few cheap sets. Let me know where to send it if you want it.
