When a cube of chalk cost more than your 1st cue. $25 Adam in 1975 . I bought my 1st custom cue from R Black,a merry widow for $250 in 83,won't hardly get a magical ld shaft today. I had all my cues out one day and realised I had 25 grand in cues and was living in a 40 g house,this was in the early nineties.I was single so evidently my priorities were not the same as they are now. I changed my lifestyle,live in a $250000 house with a wonderful woman and play with a Mottey I bought in 2002.The one thing that has stayed constant......I still can't make a ball!

I still have the first cue I ever paid for, an $80 Dufferin with a mutli-colored linen wrap and an extra shaft for snooker. To quote Red from Shawshank, "...seems like a long time ago."

You know you've been playing pool for awhile;

If there was a sign over the door that read: No girls allowed...

Game of choice. 1Ball in the corner was it. (Phila). $1.00/$2.00 a game
You know you have been playing too long when your wife calls...you tell her you are almost done playing or you are on your way home and she says you are full of shiiit.

when you find sticks in your house you do't remember having. When anyone not as good as the other at anything 'gets the 7'. Anything easy is a hanger.

When 9-ball rules have changed 3 times...


Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

You must be older then me. We played 9 ball for .35 a game. That was my lunch money when I was 14, 1964. I'd rather look like a pimp then eat. Yea we played 1 ball spot, spot.
That's how I won enough to buy shoes and clothes that my parents couldn't afford. A buck a game. That was big money back in my day.

You know youíve been around for a while when the first pool hall you went to....
...had swinging half doors on the toilet.....
....and you could smell the urinal from four blocks away.

And the menís toilet was the only toilet


Lionize your game.

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

Yeah, pre-Texas Express... can you say 'spot shots'?

Watching Efren from when he first hit the States to now.

Watching Earl in his prime, break and run out.

Meeting Willie Mosconi, Ronnie Allen, Steve Mizerak, and Fats...

Before smart phone distraction, before the Internet, social media, Youtube,
eBay, 'reality' TV...

Yup, been playing awhile... and I ain't done.

You know you have been playing too long when you hear the phone ring and you instinctively say...I'M NOT HERE!. I miss the old days when nobody had a phone and wife/girlfriends/others would call the hall looking for someone and you would hear 20 guys yell. I'm not here. You never saw me. I just left. I haven't seen him in days.
