I just receieved a very special gift from O.H.B. in the mail yesterday. I had asked him if I could get a copy of the newspaper article of himself and Louie Roberts and I was not expecting THEE poster that he was selling at the recent D.C.C. I thought maybe he could copy the text for me and email it. When he asked for my address, I thought maybe he had already done this for someone else and still had a copy. No, not O.H.B., he sends me this huge poster that I gotta have my neighbor 2 houses down hold an edge so I can read it. ;) Anyway, I want to thank O.H.B. here in the forum instead of just a P.M. Because not only did I get a poster, I can wall-paper my whole house with it. :D Peace, John.

Is it on the net somewhere?

Frankncali - I am normally selling it to AZers for $50. That includes the tube and postage. There was 30 of them sold at the DCC for $75. When my Daughter puts it on eBay, she starts the bidding out at $50 so I think that is fair.
If your interested - PM me your mailing info.

It's only a lousy local newpaper article. Call the paper and see if you can buy an archived article. Maybe the local Library has it on microfiche too.

Bill - Your 100% right!
There is always going to be the jealous, little (in character) people who are always negative. Their small little existence is very depressing for them so they lash out at someone who has what they can't ever have. I don't let them bother me at all, as it is just the price that goes with the territory.
Don't let them get to you as that is all they are after.
They just want what they can never get. "RECOGNITION"!

Tom, what you said describe YOURSELF to a T. Yes I do have an ax to grind. I"m tired of your posts talking down to people, putting yourself and your huge ego on a pedestal, even though you are a nobody.

http://www.azbilliards.com/vbulletin/upload/showthread.php?p=114505#post114505

Like how you talk about your 'big company with all the employees'. U mean that business U run out of your house with just yourself? Isn't your 'employees' relly just independant contractors that dont get a salary or benefits only getting paid when they sell something?

Read your old posts Tom. You are a pompus jerk who hasn't done much worth noting. Read the arrogance and LIES in your posts. Sorry, I wouldn't pay $50 for your article eventhough the big interest isn't U, it's St. Louie Louie.

Thank U and Good luck to you too.

That's funny, cuz I wouldn't sell it for $200 BECAUSE of O.H.B.'s side of the artice. Try reading it someday, you might learn something.

Is that better, or worse, than the guy that goes around the pool room picking up pieces of chalk to stuff in his $400 cue case? :cool:

I would like to say Thanks to all the AZers who have bought the St. Louie, Louie-OHB Poster.
The most positive feedback I am getting (and the reason I created the 2 articles together) is that is really shows the contrast and choices that a pool player had back in the '70's.
As large as I have made the poster, some poolrooms & sports bars are saying that it is still pretty hard to read the entire context.
That (and the few jealous nits on here) are the only negatives so far.
Again, Thank You & Good Luck!

Jeff Sergent was an APA 7. Mike Bandy was an APA 7. Steve Oaks was an APA 7.

Point being, there have been some very knowledgeable and skilled APA 7s. The guy who posts here under that "nom de plum" is neither.

What the hell does "nom de plum" mean ????????????

I am always saying things to my kids like (the other day), I said "You can tell a trapper, buy his furs"! OR "Don't worry about the horses, just LOAD THE DAMN WAGON"!
They look at me like a puppy when he cocks his head in confusion.

I think your the only one on here who can do that to me.
So again - What is "nom de plum"?

French for 'pen name' , typically an alias that an author used. As an example, Benjamin Franklin used Silence Dogood as his nom de plum when he first started writing letters to the newspaper (where he worked, he was hiding his real identity). Many women authors long ago used male nom de plums in order to get published.

Didn't think it would take someone from a French speaking country to know the meaning, Dave, LOL.

It's actually nom de plume. Plume being the French word for pen, plum being an English word for a type of fruit. It wouldn't surprise me if nom de plum isn't used fairly often due the laxness of people in general to spell things correctly. Since this thread has become somewhat of a flame war, you guys might want to start throwing around your nom de guerre, also. This would be your war name, like Alexander the Great, Attila the Hun, the Black Widow, Stone Cold, etc. C'est la vie!

APA7 - FYI -The articles are from 1977 and was in The St. Louis Globe-Democrat. It has been Out Of Business for over 12 years. There is nothing at the libraries and even at the historical society. This Poster is comprised of 2 different articles that appeared on 2 consecutive days. December 26 & 27. The author intended to show the contrast and viewpoints of the two best pool players in the St. Louis metro area. He is the one who decided to interview me & Louie (AFTER) talking with people at the 4 main poolrooms.
These articles also have comments from me about Louie & comments about me from Buddy Hall. These comments are in an area where the old Tank McNamera cartoon used to be. The over all size of this Poster is 3' X 3'.
