    Heads Up

    Cues, Cases, Tippers, Tappers, Shapers, Papers and Capers

    I've often wondered what I would do with all my pool 'stuff' now that I no longer play pool and I think that I've stumbled upon the answer. I'm going to have sex. Apparently, all that is required are toys. I have all my pool 'stuff'...
