    What would you do here?

    E all day. There are many more ways to get funny going beneath the seven compared to above it. One of the things that caught my eye is that if I have to glance off the 9 while pocketing the 7 in E, I should still be alright. However, if I have to glance that 9 while shooting uptable, there are...

    Horrors! Spirit Airlines and cues!

    For sure, bro! I'll pass through and hit some balls this evening. And if I don't see you then, maybe we can hook up in late August when I come back. In any case,, let Joey know I'll return to make another small deposit (or to collect on the loan). 😄 By then my game should be back in order and I...

    Horrors! Spirit Airlines and cues!

    Jay, did it have a TSA sticker on the bag? I wonder if your cue was the victim of overzealous inspectors.

    Horrors! Spirit Airlines and cues!

    Salvation!! Cues found!! My wife can tolerate me again!! Now here's the kicker. Spirit's baggage office still has no idea how the bag got to Orlando. But all's well that ends well. Still...the cues will be sent home via FedEx, and neither I or my babies will ever be caught on Spirit again...

    My game is GONE!

    Keep at it and it will come. I just went through the same thing. Check out your setup, and double check to make sure that a grip clench or twist hasn't crept into your stroke. I would also advise you to re-study "Play Great Pool." Take this opportunity to address previous bad habits, and you...

    Horrors! Spirit Airlines and cues!

    This is my first time flying Spirit Airlines, and my heart told me not to trust them with my cues! How do you lose a bag on a nonstop flight from St. Thomas to Orlando??!! I guess Racks in Sanford won't be seeing me tonight! 😡😢 Praying that they are found, and warning all players...leave Spirit...

    Changing cue weight with age

    Thanks for the best wishes!!! I go for my follow-up visit on Friday, and I'm eager to see what the vision looks like once the silicone bubble is removed. Of course, things are indeed quite wavy in the affected eye, and I accept that not only will the vision probably never be what it was, but...

    Changing cue weight with age

    I hear you bro! The good thing is to be playing, and to enjoy it. Will you be in Vegas this year? About to pull the trigger as soon as I do my follow-up on the retina detachment surgery I had last month. Of course, the detachment and tears were the result of...you guessed it! Aging!

    At what point do you think it's adventagious to learn to jump?

    When should you learn the jump shot? Yesterday. At the 550-600 level you should already be encountering people who LOVE to push out to an easy jump against you, knowing that you can't take advantage of it.

    Danny Green, RIP

    Oh man!!! I just learned of this!!! I met Danny a few years ago back at First Break in Sterling, VA. I was only in town for a week, and after an afternoon of hitting balls I was sitting around trading pool stories with some of the players, and it came out that this was THE Danny Green. Really...
