Remember Gene the Machine? I forget his last name but MAN could he steer Big Whitey around that bar box. He was poetry in motion too.
Wow. Talk about deja-f^&*g-vu. Gene Cooper from Ft.Paine, Ala. He came thru Tulsa in the early 80's. I steered him around and helped him acquire recreational chemicals for his trip back to Vegas. He was a world-class card counter as well as a bar-table monster. I should say "semi" monster 'cause while he was here another big-ball guru, Mike Hyland from Neb., was in town and he put a major beat down on 'ol Gene. Matlock, Hyland and John Shuput were the best that i actually saw with the big ball. Hadn't thought about Gene in a minute or two.

Cooper! Yes! I would've loved to have seen him in action against Matlock. And, as you know, Gar, EVERYONE books losers, regardless. But I'll tell you what. He literally could not get played, even, on a bar box with Big Whtey when he was down here every year for the Citrus Open at Bakers. NOBODY wanted him. And Louie told me ( not that Louie couldn't have been wrong about anything ) Cooper was the strongest, most over-powering bar-boxer he'd ever seen and Louie didn't think any swingin' d**k could get there with him even. But... I've heard the same thing about Matlock, so... Both tremendous players. I never saw Hyland play. I think I saw Shuput but not sure...

Matlock on a bar box with big whitey... not too many want any of that!
Having said that, give Keith a week hitting balls and he'd still instill
some fear.. so much natural talent.. I'll stream that, bring it!

I remember meeting Bullard at Derby. I think this is the same guy. Keith was close with a lot of guys down South because he lived there for a while in various places. Like a rolling stone. Wherever he lay his cue was his home.

Online poker, horses online with his friends who are at the horsetrack, all sports games, and believe it or not, Keith has become a landscape artist in his spare time. He turned my yard into a magical wonderland, getting rid of the weeds, trimming bushes and trees, mulching.

My next-door neighbor, who is in her 80s, likes my yard so much that she asked Keith to help her too. It's not a lot of money, but it puts a little chump change in Keith's pockets and keeps him busy. He actually enjoys it. Plus, it's great exercise. I get out there and help sometimes too.

We have several elderly and senior citizens on my street. Once a week, Keith carries their trash cans to the curb for the garbage truck that comes once a week, and that evening, he brings their cans back up to their homes. He does not expect compensation for this, but at Christmas time, they give him a little jelly roll.

Keith is still every heavily in touch with the action players around the country, speaks to several of them daily.

I asked him yesterday about this so-called Matlock versus McCready match, and he paused before replying. Looks like it's in the works. Keith did not share this with me until I asked. I know why, but that's a story for another thread.

Oh, and to the Matlock cheerleaders, Keith said with a big cueball, he has no fear against Gonzilla or Matlock. Bring it on, says Keith.
