Know whats interesting? That willie mosconi world of pocket billiards interview(if you even want to call it that) on youtube, which is more of a how to play video and with an interviewer who obviously has no idea who mosconi was, is somewhat symbolic of what you said. IF you hear mosconi talk in there, he talks like he knows the golden era of straight pool and pocket billiards was over. it's really sad if you watch it.
