    Pool's "image" has nothing to do with it's lack of popularity - Science

    Mini-hustlers... I had this happened to me at a Putt-Putt course once. This kid (early 20s) came up and asked if I wanted to play for $2 a hole. I said, "Well, f##k no!" and walked away from him.

    Pool's "image" has nothing to do with it's lack of popularity - Science

    Where is Bill Nye when you need him? I don't know about anyone else, but I'm still waiting for the promised "Science" portion if this discussion.

    How do you keep your pitching wedge from tearing the cloth? The only time I have played this game was on a snooker table. We played a version where a red was placed on top of a chalk cube on the center spot. This represented a "tree". If you knocked the tree over during play, you were...

    Time limit instead of shot clock

    What, Me Hurry?... As a friend of mine said when the league was making rules to shorten NFL games, "Why are we in such a hurry to get our fun over with???"

    My 7 Year old at FeltBar in Colorado with Samm

    I have a 9 year old nephew that I have been thinking about introducing to the game of pool. I'm wondering though, would I need to get him a smaller cue to use? Would the house cues be to long or heavy? Should I stick to teaching him on a barbox or would an 8' not be too big for him? Does...

    What signified you turning the corner in advancing your game?

    When I wore a younger man's clothes, it was when I began beating players consistently that I could never beat before. Now, since picking the game back up after a sizable layoff, I have quite a few miles to cover before reaching that curve in the road again.

    That's No Billiards Movie! The Top 15 Worst Offenders

    Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play? How did you like Virgin Pockets? I just saw that recently and thought it wouldn't have been a bad movie if it weren't for the cliched plot, bland dialogue, and poor acting. Other than that, it was pretty good.
