Hall of Fame Dinner story - 12-09-2017, 03:34 AM

I was invited by Mark Griffin to the dinner and induction, it was truly an honor to sit at the CSI table. Upon arrival we sat at the designated table. Sitting on my right was Mark and Dave Vandenberghe.
As we are sitting there our salads are on the table and Dave starts to eat his salad and he says there is no dressing. At this point I see a waiter waking our way, nicely dressed, black dress slacks, white dress shirt with a bow tie.
I stopped him and I say excuse me sir, can we please get some dressing for our salads. He politely tells me he doesn’t work here, and he moves on. Now Mark and Dave are laughing so hard I didnt know why.
Mark looks at me and he is laughing so hard and he says I just asked Mike Panozzo for the dressing.
Now I have never met Mike but I sure know who he is, it was funny and very awkward for me at the same time !
So I just want to send Mike my apologies, and also thank him because within 5 minutes we got our dressing !!

I hope the salad was digestible.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

It was pretty good food for a banquet. The nice lady next to me bought a couple bottles of wine which made it even better.

I was at a table with Mitch Laurance, Spencer Sigel, Cindy Nelms-Byrne and Julie Shamos. Spencer says he plays a little pool.

Good if you like rubber chicken . Bob, I think you've been eating at too many fast food joints. Maybe the wine went to your head.

The key is the qualifier: "for a banquet". The wine helped, as did not having any lunch. Preparation is important.

Way too long! God bless Darren and Tom and they are both deserving of their honor, but they were putting people to sleep with speeches that went on and on....and on....and on!

I liked Tom's speech .He talked about his early days and went through his whole life.
Darren was hard for me to understand ( Kings English )
I did understand when he talked about Allison rear end ....
He roasted a lot of people .

Nice story.
I was expecting the punchline-
The "waiter" gave you a dressing down before handing you his black dress slacks, white dress shirt

They weren't done any favors by introductions that took just as long.
