New slide show/video on YouTube - 11-15-2006, 08:31 PM

I just uploaded a video to YouTube that contains images from the 1986 Clyde Childress Memorial Pool Tournament. My first effort at doing one of these featured photos taken at the 1982 Dayton Open, Earl Strickland’s first big win (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vu-4gKhaBzY). This latest effort was inspired by the sadness I sometimes feel when thinking back about old tournaments and old players. Old timers will recognize most of the faces, but I have captioned them just in case. And most will recognize players who are no longer with us such as Cornbread Red, Steve Mizerak, Jay Swanson, and Gary Speath. Anyway, I have fiddled with the thing most of the day and finally decided to go ahead and upload it before I went any crazier than I already am. It’s yours to enjoy, and I hope you do so a time or two.

Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ryb8AJ4M-0c

Thanks for the upload, I know that has to take some time to put together. I don't see how Kim Davenport, or anybody for that matter, could play pool with a ball cap on.

Thanks again,
Matt

Maybe that was the weight he was giving up in the match?

Thank you, that was great. I Love looking at pictures like that. A friend of mine has a few of the Johnson city fliers from around 1971 and 1972. I am trying to get them from him to scan & post.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the compliment. I think one reason DCC is so popular is that in some ways it is kind of like the atmosphere from the old tournaments. I'm glad I had the old pics from the 1980's to use in the slide show.

Thanks Bill. Another flashback in time for some of us. I wasn't at this one, but the Clyde Childress tournament at the bar, what was the name of it. One of the Brocks owned it. That was the first time I saw Shannon play. He was beating Berle playing $100 a game 9-ball. His Dad was side-betting the games. Shannon had just turned 13. Thanks again, nice pictures. Sam

Sam, I believe it was the Maverick Club owned by Monroe Brock. Ring a bell?

Bill you must've known Earl from back then, was he always the jerk that he is now? It's sad when you see someone so talented that ruins it with a bad attitude.

Sorry, I didn't really know Earl. Maybe someone else can chip in on this question. I do know he was a little crazy and pretty cocky.

Bill who's singing the song? I know it's called Mad World - it was Christmas number one a couple of years back here in England and was while it was a nice song, I didn't think nothing much of it. This version (the original?) is wonderful.

And nice video. I don't particularly feel the same feelings as a lot of the older fellas on here who remmeber the time - i'm only 19. but nevertheless i know most of the players and it's still a very sad, reflective video, seeing all those greats who i know now as older, slower, and past their prime looking fit and young.
