Great match.

Thank you....I remember this was the first pro tournament I ever saw in person, and I think the first time I ever saw Earl play. I remember thinking even in his early matches he was something special....

assuming of course you are looking for something in the first place.

are you of the position that you should ravenously comb the forums to make sure you don't repeat a single theme before posting? i really can't see any reason why you would tell the OP to use the search feature in this case.

its some cool footage, man, that i wouldn't have seen, or known existed if he didn't post it.

thanks to sniper for posting.

THanks for posting. That was a joy to watch. Earl put on a clinic. He really was a phenom back then. Way ahead of his time. Wish we could see him play/win like that again. Twenty-two years old dismantling a world champ.

Thanks for the link. Great match and a great blast from the past. In the final clip at about the 4 minute mark, I believe you can see a great shot of the late Dave Piona congratulating Earl. He is the one with the big old mustache and great smile. He is still missed.

It is, and you'll have to practice what you preach the next time you have a question to ask bud.
But then, you are from Eastern Canada so I guess you do have an excuse.

Anyway, thanks for posting the link, that was good watching. Earl at 22.

Cigar Tom was pretty good himself. Is he still playing?

here's something most people don't know....

Earl refuses to watch himself play for some reason....he just won't do it.

But yet, he can tell you every shot, in every match, he's ever shot. Down to what balls, and what pocket he shot them in. Whether it was yesterday, or 25 yrs ago.

You have nothing to apologize for. Thanks for posting this great match. I would never have seen it if you didn't post it. I'm a great Earl fan. It was great to see Earl so happy and the fans 100% behind him. Can't say enough about his shot making ability and his position play to match.

If I am not mistaken Miz and Earl had a little history when Earl was even younger than that. He may have been around 16 or so and Miz did not want to play him so Earl had a real hard-on for him by the time they met here. It was nice to here Earl tell this story and then see it for myself. Thanks again for the post because I never would have thought to look for it here or anywhere else.:wink:

Great match.

I think the commentary was excellent.

I do find it odd that during the US Open a few years ago with Mizerak in attendance for I believe the last time, Earl commended Mizerak for "breaking like a man." And Mizerak could hit them hard. But in the first game, he clearly soft broke!!!
