Was at a bar tonight.
The great line was:
"I only missed one shot"
Hahahahah
How about you AZ?

Had a guy tell me, "It's easy to win when you don't have to shoot any tough shots." I kindly thanked him for unwittingly paying me a huge compliment, lol.

Nothing. I ran 5 racks of 9 ball and that pretty much shut him up. I don't think we've spoken since. What can I say? I was angry and caught a gear.

I had a oblivious team captain say something similar. 'What's so good about this D, all I've seen him make is easy shots' Within two years, the player was re-ranked as C+, and likely broke into the B range.

my favorite line. You didn't win, I lost.

The guy said, "You need to come to my end of the valley where the pockets are 4-3/8, then we'll see how you hit em."

We were playing on a 9ft Diamond, 4-1/2" pockets, old cloth.

This happened Tuesday night. This league is fixed your handicap is way too low. You shouldn't even know what that shot!

Opponent turns to tourney director who is watching our game. "This is crap. How is he a B. Did you see that shot. No B player would even see that shot". In my defense I was shooting very well that night and won the local tournament.

Opponent hooks himself behind the 7 ball while trying to play shape on the 6, fouls, and says "you got lucky" I burst into laughter exclaiming that I had nothing to do with him stepping on his own tally whacker.

I always love this one! I usually come back at them with "you make your own rolls buddy".

It's funny how some players truly believe luck is either with them or against them, when in reality the only difference between "good" luck and "bad" luck is our ability to be observant and to notice certain things. If you overlook pitfalls or potential trouble, don't say you got a bad roll, and don't blame it on bad luck. If you are observant and notice certain opportunities or potential advantages or possible trouble, you will be more equipped to do the right thing. Others will say you got lucky, or you're "getting all the rolls". But actually you're just being more observant and aware of what's going on around you, making your own luck, creating your own rolls.

What about those precious sayings after a tough loss?

I'm beating this guy 5-2 going to seven in a regional event. He catches a gear and comes back to beat me hill-hill, knocking me out of the tournament. He played really well, running out the racks on every one of my mishaps and sprinkling in a couple of break and runs.

We shake hands after the last rack and he says to me: "You know what the thing is - I don't play so much now and don't really care for competition anymore." :(:angry:

In a double elim. tourny years ago, nine ball, first match I beat a "much better player", at least in his own mind.

A little while later I was walking by him as he said to a friend, "he was making everything"
He said it like it was some kind of bad thing.

I thought to myself, tell it to your buddies in the losers bracket.

That is all i got, I don't get out much

Yeah, the guy that said that to me was the captain of our team. So eventually we went to the pool room on a 9-foot table. We kept track of the games and I beat him 24 to 4. His comment then was, "I didn't get worse, you got better!". Haha

He even made me rack some of the last games even after I won (he didn't want everyone in the room to see how bad I was beating him). LOL

while beating a local playing 9-ball, I was in mid-stroke when the guy said "I use to shoot real good 'til I got shot in the head!" I usually tune out the other player's chit chat, but I remember asking myself "what did he just say?" I learned later he actually did get shot - obviously not fatal. That was a new one for me. Not many guys can make that statement!

I was playing an old timer in the late 90's at the SBE and was shooting lights out. I closed out the set and I see him rubbing his leg in the chair. I said jokingly why are you rubbing your leg Im the one doing all the walking around the table running racks. he says " shut the F**k up junior before i take off my leg and beat you with it". He had a prosthetic leg and i had no idea lol.

From a friend of the loser, who was playing my friend, Troy, after Troy checks a rack before breaking.

"He must have seen that on ESPN"

Later in the game, Troy plays a great safety, caroming off a ball that was near midtable, then going three rails to hide the cueball behind two balls.

Troy comes up to me and says. "I saw that on ESPN too"

I was playing in a rotation game (1 &5 or Chicago several names for it) and there was a new player in the game.
Its a 4 player game.
I hit a stupid high gear that night.
I made a very high percentage of shots, kicks and banks.
During the game the new player who was losing says "This guy ain't safe under the table"
It was funny, well I guess you had to be there.

I had one about 2 weeks ago from a girl that plays the local tourney at my hall and also at hard times. Race to 3 and I beat her 3 zip. About 15 minutes later she comes to me while I am in the middle of another match and says "you must play in the APA". I said no why? She says because that wiggle you do with your stick. I was like what wiggle thing? She says "that wiggle thing you do with your stick while sitting". I was like what? I didn't even realize I was doing anything. She said that's rude. I laughed and said "first of all there is movement all around the tables". People walking between matches and just other games. Second thing I said was how long have you been playing? She said 6 years. I laughed again. I said I have underwear older than that.

I also pointed out how rude it was to interject yourself into another match you are not playing.

People are characters out there.

Not really a "line" but I beat a guy once and he asked me to join his APA team as his hidden player. He wanted me to dump matches all year and then turn it up during the playoffs.

Waste one night a week in a bar dumping matches. No thanks.

Warming up with someone before a tournament. He's got about 30 years on me. He asks, "Do you mind if I call you my rack boy?" I don't mind some competitive jabbing so I say, "Sure, sounds fun." He wins our first game and hollers out, "RACK BOY!" to summon me over. I have a smile and rack them up. He keeps it up any time he wins but I ended up ahead 6-3 on him before we need to give up the table. He packs his cue up trying to figure out where his assumption missed reality and muttered to me, "I guess you were the one that made me your rack boy." I smiled and just said, "Guess so." It was delicious.

Was a grizzled old-timer playing in a tournament in Laurel, Maryland. Sam "Seattle Sam" Trivett (I think that's how his last name was spelled), just lost his match to a terrific player in his own right. Sam dejectedly sauntered over to where Scotty and Freddie Boggs and I were sitting on bar stools in the middle of the room, Sam shook his head a few times, Apparently it didn't matter that he lost the match but what DID matter........ "How'd you do Sam?" I asked. "Boys", he growled.................."I just lost to the UGLIEST player in the room." He shook his head some more and strolled away while I attempted to pick myself up off the floor after falling off the stool from laughing so hard.

Last night neighbor said he loves my Diamond light.
He was losing.
Then he starts complaining about "not being able to see the lines"
I said "what, do you usually shoot lasers out of your eyes?!!"
....
We got in a big argument later because I won't join his pool team.
Here's a new one (off topic):
From the neighbor,
"If you don't play in a league you really don't love pool"
What kind of stupid / crazy crap is that? I was cracking up.
I crushed all his crazy reasoning.
..
I have nothing against leagues. Not trying to flame.
This guy is just clueless.

I was playing in a weekly tourney (short race) and we were playing 9 ball on a gold crown with 4" pockets and very worn in cloth. We were both off a little and it was a fairly sloppy match. I think I won 4-2. After making a tough combo to win, I went to shake my opponents hand. He refused, turned away, then quickly whipped around and very loudly said, "Dude, you are ****ing terrible".....You can't make this stuff up.
