Joe Rogan- Pool benefactor? - 05-25-2020, 02:59 PM

I just read that Rogan signed a very lucrative contract with Spotify for his podcast.

I wonder if Rogan could be convinced to put together his own pro pool tour?

He’s likely too busy to be bothered, but I know he loves to play pool and somewhat follows pro pool. Somebody who knows him should try to convince him

Off topic (Sorry 'bout that.), but y'all might enjoy this, if you haven't already seen it.

I'd love to see an event like the McCreery 3c one: six champs enter; one champ leaves.

But people who earned earned millions earned dont spend earned money on things that dont make them earned money.

Keep dreaming, pool. Your prince is out there.

...and you lived happily ever after.


So keep your nose clean keep it on a shoe string
With no opposing no undue disclosing
Nothing stale nothing old or decomposing
Nothing empty nothing bold or over knowing
Nothing more than tasteful reconstruction
Of the plot that edifies all our instructions
It's on the goodness of our dime that you can function

I get that, but it an article about the deal Rogan basically said he never expected to get a contract close to this much $- maybe he wouldn’t be averse to setting some aside for one of his hobbies and perhaps grow it in terms of public interest

especially when they have a wife. Joe knows the whole pool deal-If he wants to do something, he'll do it.

I don't know if Joe will see it or not (I doubt it), but I posted a comment under a recent (Memorial Day) YouTube video of his, with a link to this thread.

Here's the comment:
"Hey Joe:
Where ya goin' with that cue in your hand?

In case you see this Joe, I'd like you to take a glance at this thread from the AZBilliard main forum. It's about you:

I'd like to see a charity match that I think would draw a good crowd and the money could be donated to the COVID-19 cause or something equally worthwhile.

I'd like to see a Scotch-doubles, all-around (8 ball, 9 ball, and 10 ball) match between the team of Efren and Manny Pacquiao vs the team of Earl and Joe Rogan.

That should create some excitement, drama, and comedy all in one event.

I'm sure there are some big Hollywood Hills or Las Vegas mansions with pool tables where it could be held.

Joe Rogan has 8.41 million subscribers on Youtube, 9.4 million followers on Instagram, 2.4 million likes on his Facebook, and 6 million followers on Twitter.

That is a lot of potential viewers.

Add in Manny's, Efren's, and Earl's gangs and you have millions of possible people to tune it if it is streamed live on the internet.

I'm tasking Jay Helfert and Fatboy to set this up. I get a free ringside seat and travel for thinking it up.


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***

Not a bad idea. The problem with LA, is there are no more large upscale poolrooms to hold such an event in. They used to have charity events loaded with celebs back in the day, at the Hollywood Athletic Club and Hollywood Billiards.

Sadly these rooms have been both closed for a long time.

I think his money would be better spent building an upscale members only pool room with all 9' Brunswick Anniversary tables in my city. And because I thought of the idea, I naturally would be given a free membership.

Sorry guys to burst your bubble...after all the once wealthy and now broke celebs that JR has had on would he do this. I love and have a passion for the game but given 100Meg (before taxes) I'm sure not dropping 2Meg so I can hang out with a couple of pros (this can be done today for free at any tourney).
