I cant help but wonder if thats what went on here.
To stay on topic, I dont think my wife would divorce me but I would be in a heap of $h1t for an extended period of time and she would never let me forget about it. I would also be busting my butt to get every penny back and then some for my poor decision making.

P.S. does anyone know if this match is on video and where it can be found??
This is precisely the trick behind credit cards...making money much easier to spend than actually having to lay out the cash. Use your cards as if they were cash, you're not as likely to end up in trouble. There's a name credit card companies use for people like me who pay in full every month yet use the discounts and other things they offer customers....deadbeats.

Proud of being a deadbeat and also proud of being considered a nit because I don't play pool for money.

To each their own...

Outside the pool community nits are called "wise consumers."

We pay off our credit card every month to a zero balance.

It's the only way to go.

never too early for a bloody mary...

attempted disguise as an academic exercise, you know, Lou, that you're just introducing a little more salt into the cut.

I get it that it's hard for you to pass up these opportunities.

As I explained a little earlier in this thread, I thought it was an interesting question and still do -- that's it.

And, as much as you might try and drape it with ulterior motives, I'm telling you there is not. Now, if you really want to insist on your interpretation and are concerned about any salt in any wounds, perhaps, just maybe, you might consider letting this thread die instead of bumping it up to the top of the first page. I know you're buddies with John and all but you're way off the mark on this.

Motives aside, you're a smart guy. Lou. At minimum you had to know that the net effect of a thread like this would be a little more shaming in John's direction.

You start a thread like this then you want to admonish me for expressing my opinion on it, that I shouldn't be bumping it? Are you serious?

As for my being buddies with John, I honestly try to be friends with everyone. I even consider you a friend though we respectfully disagree from time to time.

best,
brian kc

I disagree about shaming anyone.

Gambling is a part of pool for a large segment of the population here, so the topic, regardless of its impetus, is not only germane to a lot of folks here, it is obvious from the thoughtful and humorous responses that others found the topic worth commenting on without mention of anyone else.

Again -- my intent had nothing to do with John. Now, if some, such as yourself, want to interpret it that way there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. It's like saying a thread on rails is another slam against Glenn, or a LD thread being a slam against manufacturers.

Two last things: my point about bumping is that you wail about this thread yet go and give it more visibility by posting. If all you wanted to do was express your opinion to me, certainly my PM box is not that full (I think). And, I want you to think back to the issue of another $10K and how, despite my own personal recollection and those of the two guys with me, I tried as best I could to carve out room for your side of the story, your recollection, and give you the benefit of the doubt. You don't seem willing to do the same for me so I may have to rethink that.
