I am getting a Custom Jump Cue & hopefully a new 2-4 Leather Case. My stocking stuffers are 4 Pool Videos & 2 new books (I saw the receipt).

Hope all you AZBers have a great Christmas...

Remember, Santa can't be good to everyone, that's just life.

Good Luck...

I want my stroke back! Been playing like cr@p for the last 6 months. :(

But it we're talking about tangible things here, I'm kinda hoping for a new leather case.

Me too, but I'll take an Elcheapo case 3x5.

I want to get my U.S. Open 2007 set by Christmas.

Besides that, I wanna find out that my company's contract here in Iraq gets renewed, and that my leave is approved and I can go to DCC.

In years past I preferred material gifts for Christmas ... However, this year I am hoping a second opinion will bring hopeful news concerning my Sister's Stage 4 Cancer diagnosis ... and, for myself, I hope Cataract surgery will restore my vision well enough to play a few more years ...

Last, and probably most important, I hope for a truly United States of America ...

Pool lessons from Earl Strickland would be nice.

And being able to retire so I could play more.

I think anything nice I will probably have to buy myself. I am sure I'll get the same ol' socks, books, and such from my parents.

I splurged myself on a Bob Frey sneaky a month ago (love it BTW) so cues are covered.

I would like a 3x5 Justis case so I may order one now that I got a raise.

In a few months I'll get into a home, get my 9' Diamond with light setup and be able to actually practice again.

Then comes the necessary item: Samsung 58" 1080p DLP widescreen or something like it.

I got myself a new custom jump cue from Steve Lomax for Christmas. I will get it at DCC.

It is by far the baddest jump cue I have ever used. I gave Shannon's a test run and I was sold. I can't wait.

I wouldn't mind this second edition of the Billiard Encyclopedia: http://www.billiardencyclopedia.com/regularhtm.htm

The first edition goes for 700 bucks! :(

It looks like something I would like to add to my pool library! :)

how about for people the world over to realize just exactly what it is that we celebrate at Christmas? its more than time off, more than receiving gifts, more than family gatherings, more than football games, etc, etc. its the celebration of the absolute SUPREME moment in human history, the birth of our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ.

that and for all the poor little animals to be kept warm, safe, and fed so they dont suffer.

i ordered myself a christmas gift some weeks ago.

My first custom cue after 3 years of playing.
i'm replacing my 30$ cue with a Bob frey sneaky pete with a leather wrap.
it should be shipped 5 days ago and ariving ANY day soon!!

For the rest what i'd like:

- the billiard encyclopedia (400euro's at least!! :s just way tomuch for a book) :eek:
- better gear to keep my cue in shape (new gloves, new tips, tippicker, dimeshaper, etc)
- a second marquetry cue for my collection :D
- the full DVD set of how to build cue's. :D
- the dvd's from the action challenge. :cool:
- the walls in my home where my 9ft table is to be 4 feet wider so i dont have to use the short cue on 1/3th of all my shots :mad:

to add to my collection:
- a perfect old BBC cuerack 2 1/4 and a 2 1/8
- a bbc pea bottle with all the peas included
- a ivory BBC 3c ballbox.
- all the BBC reverse tokens they ever made.

my biggest wish of all:
- that my game comes back after the eye dominance changes that acured in the last months. (working on it heavily!!!) and i hope it will be back for next season.
- to run 50balls in straightpool

Thats it ! if one of them arives, ill already be happy ;)

Honestly, I'd love to get a new MP3 player to replace the one that so suddenly left us... I dropped it taking it out of my coat :P

But I'll settle for a hardcover copy of Running the Table :D

I was walking through the mall and passed by a Santa sitting in his chair. There were no kids in line and as I walked past he said, "What would you like for Christmas?"
Jokingly I replied that I would like a blonde and a bottle of JD.
He said if he had those in his sleigh he wouldn't get to my house.

well, after I get my case, from Pro Series Pro Series SB-4035 Pool Cue Case - Black/White 3x5 as described on Billiard ware house .com that is shown with the Universal Smart Shaft Logo, Id like a new Olhousen 5x10 with 860 simonis, electric blue, and a New set Of Brunswick Centenials, Id like to top all that off with a cool million in cash.


:rolleyes: like that would ever happen..

I too like to dream about all the things I want Pool related for Christmas. My list is a short one so here goes.

A perfect Stroke every time I pick up my cue be it a tournament play, cheap gambling, or practice.

The ability to focus 110% on ever pool shot I take be in in tournament play, cheap gambling, or practice.

The knowledge of the pool the great like Little Joe, Dr. Cue, Buddy Hall, Grady, and the other great players who?s knowledge is power. Be they alive or dead.

Think my list is a simple one that no amount of money can purchase for me for Christmas.

Heckler & Koch HK45 Under the tree would be nice! I saw the gun at the gun shop and can't stop drewling on the keyboard. Been looking at 1911's and the hk45 just fit my hands perfectly!

Gift-wise (no particular order): Some new 18" rims. A Diamond table light. Performance Box for track data. GT3 seats. Harness Bar and harness. I guess that's about it.

Hmm, no turbo upgrades? Id sugest some Nitto tires to go with those 18" rims, and dont forget the Zex appeal... G tech makes an awsome performance meter as well..
