Out of curiosity, did you Lou or John every watch the match on YouTube afterwards? In its entirety?

I was there part of the first day in person. I never watched it on YouTube afterwards, maybe about 30 seconds

Nothing like one pocket to put me to sleep. I'll watch it later.

I'm sure Lou watches it every day.

John, probably NEVER.


The Hustler

Such a man spends all his life playing every day for small stakes. Give him every morning the money that he may gain during the day, on condition that he does not play-you will make him unhappy. It will perhaps be said what he seeks is the amusement of play, not gain. Let him play then for nothing, he will lose interest and be wearied. ***Blaise Pascal***

I was in Las Vegas, several years ago, for the umpteenth time and I was watching this face sculptor guy on Freemont Street while I was killing time.

It was during the Christmas/New Year week and it was freezing outside when I came out of the casino and after watching him a while, he asked if I wanted him to make one of me. Since I knew it would take about 30 minutes, I wasn't going to sit there and freeze so I went into the ABC Store and bought me a beanie cap to cover my head.

Long story, short...he created a masterpiece, but it still didn't capture my true beauty which would have been impossible for anyone to do.

I took a picture of the sculptor and used it as my avatar.

My head is still sitting in a box in the closet.

I may be willing to sell it, if you need some kind of beautiful object to adorn your pool room wall.

In edit: I was going to have the sculptor made into a tiny 3-D hologram decal that I could put on the butt of one of my cues when I had them refinished and covered with clear coat. Keep SOBs from running off with my cue.

Funny I havent been in Vegas since 99 so I didnt recall ABC stores there. I know they are all over Hawaii. I googled them,they are in Vegas😉

Nice story and I think he did a fine job! ( I have no idea what you actually look like. If you resemble Grizzly Adams,or PeeWee Herman , artist was a bit off.)


A bull without horns is still dangerous.

Law of logical arguement-Anything is possible when you dont know what you are talking about.
