    Looks good. I think it was overdue for a facelift and modernization. I haven't been very active here lately, but I think I will change that now as I step back from Facebook a little.

    Who will be ready to play the same game with Shane now?

    After this phenomenal showing by Shane, who do you think would be willing to play him this same game for the same stakes? Must be a very short list.

    Does changing the tip on a collectible cue affect its value?

    I have a few cues that I use occasionally and they have their original tips. These are cues that aren't made anymore (Edwin Reyes). I'd like to update them to Kamui tips so that I could use them a little more rather than just have them as museum pieces. Will this hurt their value?

    Video Evidence of Opponent 3-Fouling Efren Reyes?

    Does anyone know of a taped match of 9-ball or 10-ball in which Efren was 3-fouled? I wonder what kind of odds I (or anyone else) could get to do that to him. It would be fun to try! I'd definitely have my 15 minutes of fame if I pulled it off!

    CNN has a nice picture and writeup about Ewa Mataya Laurance who turns 50 this year. She's a great ambassador for pool! Good to see some positive high-profile attention.
