The night I was arrested for reckless driving when I was walking.

Posted 01-06-2017 at 12:32 AM by gregcantrall

This might take a while. It all started at a scotch doubles League match. My wife and I did not see eye-to-eye on how things had been going that night. I decided it might just be better to walk the mile and a half home rather than it being in the car together was not an option.
So after about a half a mile down lumbia Boulevard headed towards the blue Bridge. As I am approaching the mini market on the left a police car pulls in. The two officers get out and put their backs against the wall...

She Swings

Posted 12-16-2016 at 08:39 AM by Nostroke
Updated 08-09-2018 at 05:56 AM by Nostroke

When i was in kindergarten, i use to walk to school of course-across a major thoroughfare by the way. I would go over there to play until i was about 10 or so also.

They had a heavy duty swing set as most elementary schools do and I will never forget-there was this one girl who could swing higher than anyone- male, female, adult, whatever. She went 1.5-2 feet higher than anyone else I’d say. When you were 100 yds away you knew if she was on those swings-I never knew her name...

Posted 10-04-2016 at 04:55 PM by 1sttbone

the records put up by our player can only be protected by not changing the rules every time a player perfects the game with relentless practice and devotion..there will always be a favorite, and what makes you think they won't figure out the new rack position. hopefully were not trying to protect records. lets make history not protect it. your comments please.

Getting back into the swing of things

Posted 09-30-2016 at 07:50 PM by gunzby

Two and a half years ago I was regularly beating the 9 ball ghost, I was cashing in regional tournaments and was progressing very quick. I was doing all of this on 2-3 days of practice at best.

Work decided they needed me more than I needed a life outside of work. Suddenly I had zero time for pool for the next year and a half. I was working 60-72 hours a week. On the odd week that I only worked my normal 48 I was so far behind or exhausted that I still didn't play.

Pookster.........thanks.......I covered that point in my recent post..........FYI, the shafts on my EP are 22%, My Scruggs is 20%, and my four Owen & Rauenzahn cues are a combination of 21 & 22% shaft mass ratios.........all of these cues have cue butts that weigh 14.5 ozs, except for the EP which is a 14.6 ounce butt & 4.2 ounce flat faced shafts........a truly amazing combination....

Predator tip silencer pad replacement - voids warranty?

Posted 05-26-2016 at 07:12 AM by pfd studios

OKAY - here is the long and short of it . . .when replacing the original existing tip on ANY Predator shaft you might consider NOT removing all of the leather from the existing tip (unless absolutely necessary) - this will provide a clean uniform surface when done properly in the lathe and will eliminate ALL the discussion on voiding any warranty. Bonding to the VERY thin layer of the old tip will give you a nice porous surface for the new glue to adhere to and now you will not have worry about...

The Great Pale Male

Updated 11-19-2018 at 06:06 AM by Nostroke

So Iím on the job- Iíve found Pale Male sitting on the roof of the Carlyle Hotel which is on Madison Ave a full block away from Fifth Ave which borders the Park and 3 blocks North of my spot by the Sailboat pond.. In addition Iím 200 yards further into the Park and Pale Male is 50 stories in the air. It has to be 1/4-3/8 of a mile away or more but i have my best scope on him and itís a pretty good view.

What "Mods" have you made to your favorite playing cue and why?

Elastic hair tie. When Scott gave a lesson I played wrapless, he positioned the hair tie on my cue so I knew what was correct for my stroke. It was ingrained in a short period of time. Thx Scott.

Shaft sanding!!

When I said "no", he responded with "thank you".

I believe my post also provided a comment from Laurie Franklin, who I called soon after buying a South West cue in 1991.

Well I got more pool goodies in the mail today. I recieved a set of aramith tournament pro cup balls value pack, an aramith case, and a wood score string.

I also decided to touch base with Heath from Manning cues once again as I wanted to try to get capitol one to accept a payment from my bank so I could make another payment to Manning Cues. After all he did for me up to this point I actually started to feel bad about ordering pool related items from anyone else. I have made the...
