Show yourself! Let's see who's hiding behind that computer... - 09-24-2009, 01:48 PM

I often wonder who I'm talking to and what the other guy looks like, and what he does, especially what his pool hall looks like. I can see that nobody puts a photo of them in their avatar, except for maybe a few. If we knew a little more about each other, I think it would help to have even a stronger sense of community here on AZ.

I'll volunteer to go first.

My name is Sung Kang. I am a 36 year old Korean Okie born in Tulsa, Ok. I teach the traditional art of TaeKwon-Do as my profession and have been doing so for 20+ years. I have most recently been working to lease out retail spaces to tenants in our new 12000 sq ft building, which we just recently moved into after being in our previous building since 1978.

Here are some photos.









This is Me.



Some of my life accomplishments in TaeKwon-Do include:

89 U.S. National Champion- Silver Medal
89 U.S. Olympic Festival Silver Medalist
U.S. Olympic Training Center Team Member
Oklahoma State Champion 8 years

I play golf as well...


I love to catch em on my chartuse spinner:




When it comes to pool:

I have been playing pool for over 20 years and I am currently rated a 7 in my pool hall. Magoo's is run by Jim and Laura McDermott and they have been nothing short of wonderful. They host the most wonderful tournaments including the OB Cues Tour, the Midwest tour, and have even hosted the Camel Pro Tour back in the late 90's. Because of that, I have met Busti, Efren, Mizerak, Ernesto, and the rest of those old fogies.....





I have been gratefully taught by the Great Buddy Hall and that in itself has been the #1 thing that I needed to boost my game. I have received instruction from the great Mike Betts, who was the house pro here at Magoo's, but he passed away, RIP. I have also received instruction from Brian Jones who is the equivalent of Gabe Owen, or Shane McMinn who is also from here. I have also most recently been studying to become a cue maker. I have a small lathe and am slowly acquiring bits and pieces. I am a wood worker by nature and have a nice sized wood shop. Thanks to Chris Hightower, Joe Barringer, and this forum, I have acquired a great deal of knowledge and I don't think I would be as far as I am now if not for some of the incredibly valuable people here.



Once you sort through all the bullshit, whining, and finger pointing, this place is actually a great place with some rare and wonderful things. All I ask as a fellow member is that you do your share to contribute and to help look out for one another. Hopefully this thread will see some incredibly unique posts.

I don't know how to post pics, but I will be at Magoo's around the second weekend of November.

Maybe we can play some?

I would love that. I would love to meet any AZer. I hang out with a fellow AZer 'Duane Remick'. He is a good friend of mine and he is quite a player as well. Ftgokie also comes in every once in a while, but Magoo's is not his main pool hall.

It would be great if they showed up as well. I've met dozens of AZ'ers around the world & made some good friends on here.

I'm the one on the left.

Nice pictures & stories about yourself & Magoo's!

And my great-nephew is a Jr. National Tae-Kwon-Do Champion....from Tulsa area (Claremore). So we have a little in common.

Good thread!!

My name is Drew Cruz. My father was born in New York, raised in Puerto Rico. My mother was born and raised in Guam. My parents met and married in college. I was born February 22, 1987 in Stillwater, OK. My father was military so we moved around quite a bit when I was a kid: Oklahoma, Guam, California, Colorado, Texas, back to California, and finally settling down back in Colorado. I'm currently in my 4th year in college and finally passing some classes...I'm hoping to graduate with a degree in civil engineering in spring 2011. I have worked a variety of jobs including landscaping, surveying, restaurant service, auto mechanics, childcare, heavy equipment, retail, general contracting, as well as some less than legitimate enterprises. My career as pool hustler was very short lived (I didn't know you actually had to win). Currently I work part time at Starbucks Coffee and part time with a friend cleaning carpets. I am also a member of a grassroots libertarian subsect of the local GOP. And some pictures...

This is me with my ex at a Rockies game earlier this year.


I have a really big family:
I'm in the middle of the back row with a black shirt. The rest of these people are my cousins on my mom's side (there's a few missing), my sister, and my grandparents. We all grew up together and we're very close...like siblings.


Here's some more of my family. I'm in the front.


This is where I learned to play pool. Sticks in Colorado Springs.
I hear that Buddy Hall ran over Danny Medina on that table in the middle of the room. But that was before my time.


I'm on the far right side...


Sticks has gone downhill so I don't go there anymore, neither do any of the people in that picture. Due to reasons which fuel my hatred of the state, I rarely play pool these days.

Or when you are composing a post, you can just hit the paperclip icon and upload up to 5 pics from your computer at a time with 'Insert All'.

If you need to resize them to be under 100kb, then you should download XP Power Toys Resizer (if you have XP). There is a similar program for Vista, but I forget where it is. Both let you batch resize and puts 'Resize' in the right-click menu.
