    Heard of Milk Duds? Get ready for Uber Duds!

    Are you suggesting that someone who makes thousands of tips in a manufacturing facility can make a better tip than I can with stuff I have laying around in my garage?

    BAD CALLS in Pool ... FOULS that Weren't Called

    I've done that. I'm looking for the ball to go into the pocket and don't even think to notice that I touched the wrong ball first.

    BAD CALLS in Pool ... FOULS that Weren't Called

    Could Joe Rogan help with pool?

    The weird thing, at least for me, is that I don't need to watch pool live. The F1 Championship, NFL, NBA I want to see that in a timely fashion. I guess a large part of that is that a pool match is not culturally significant enough that I am missing out on the "event". I can see thousands of...
