Anybody shaving their underarms for pool - 09-07-2012, 05:38 AM

I was just wondering whether anybody shaves their forearm (between elbow and hand) before playing pool. Touching a ball with your hair is a foul. Let's say you are right-handed, do you shave your left forearm to avoid hair contact with object balls?

Thanks for the morning chuckle!

Do men shave their underarms?

In New York City, some of the men pluck their eyebrows, get manicures, but I'm not sure about shaving their underarms. That's a new one!

I actually do but its for personal Hygiene.If I had some Chewbacca
disease that gave me skipping ropes for underarm hair I wouldn't even
play pool,I would join the freak show instead
The only thing I worry about hitting a ball is my beard.Its about a foot
and a half long and when stretching over the table I have to really watch
that it doesn't drape over one of the balls.Once in awhile I tuck it in
my shirt if I think it'll hit.I guess with a beard like this i could still join that show I said earlier

Nope, I wear shirts that cover my armpits. I don't wear wifebeater shirts to pool halls, or anywhere else.

Thanks for the morning laugh though.

I find this thread offensive, and degrading. It goes way to far beyond the pale of moral decency, and decorum. Asking me if I shave my armpits, indeed. You might just as well ask whether, or not, I clip my dingleberries (which I do, on occasion).
Or, how about asking if I like shit sandwiches, when almost everyone knows I hate the taste of bread. Good grief.

If your underarms are so hairy that you look like you have Buckwheat in a headlock, you probably want to shave them. Just sayin.

To the OP....

In the US underarms refer to Arm Pits, you know that place where hair grows between the upper arm and the chest.

I have this visual, of 2 foot long underarm hairs falling down on the table when you are ready to shoot. Sort of like neanderthal man.

I suspect you were asking about the forearm which could make contact with a ball near it as you are bridgeing?

Serious answer, no.

Sarcastic answer, I prefer a hair removal product like Nair.

It was a backhanded joke, scsuxi.
Admittedly, not one of my better ones, but what the hell, it's early in the morning.
