Finally going to get rid of it. - 01-21-2008, 09:17 AM

I'm finally getting rid of my chicken wing. My first instruction to remove it starts this afternoon. It feels like I'm awaiting an amputation operation. Some shots just require so much focus to keep my stroke straight the way I shoot I feel it's worth it to try to get rid of the wing.

I'm posting this because I'm actually nervous to do it. I'm a week or so shy of my 3 year playing mark and I do like how I play, but at the same time dont want it to hold me back. So at the risk of crucifying my game for awhile I'm going to do it anyway. Anyone whos seen me shoot or watched my video knows how painful I am to watch shoot with it.

RIP Chicken wing, Col Sanders, Wang, Hot Wing, and every other nickname I've had. Hopefully I dont suck again for too long.

What's a chicken like you going to do with 1 wing? Don't you use both of those wings to tuck your tail when a challenge is offered?

Good luck with it. The results you will get will take time but will definitely pay off!

I've never backed down from a challenge yet O.o And I had no tail last time I checked. What're you talking about?

Always so quick to be offended...how about he might have been making a joke?

Kelly Fisher.

I've seen some people shes worked with and they're stroke and accuracy is phenominal. She's also worked with my girl and some shots shes making now are.. ridiculous as well.

It should be obvious how impressed I am at peoples results from her foundation teaching for me to give up.... my precious... but wes dont wants the wings no mores.

I have a couple of videos of my game with the wing.. after I work with her and then put in the time and effort required I'll make another to do a comparison.. lord knows I play enough that time and effort wont be a problem.

Little defensive towards his post because I read a lot of his posts in other threads this morning and they were all aggressive and harsh towards others. I figured I was no different.

Ok, point well taken...just notice that you seem to take posts personal alot. Just an observation...not a criticism.

Perhaps I do. Tone is a bit hard to get across on a forum and the wording may hit me differently at times. I try not to though

I did watch your video, and you did shoot well.

Normally I would say As long as you pocket balls, who cares what you look like while doing it?

But man, after watching your video....

Good luck with the operation. Keep us updated on how it goes.

That's a standing offer until January 09. Brad will play some thousand dollar sets too. So heres your chance to win big or go busted.
Please forgive me for taking the liberty of posting your challenge, but, as you have noted yourself, there is a better chance of a game if the challenge is made public. I am posting this to assure you that I will not back down.

It is very gracious of you to offer this game, and I wholeheartedly accept.

I have one condition, and that is for YOU to come out to this side of the United States to play me.

I have already flown out there to play you once, giving you the benefit of time change as well as home-court advantage. I believe you should return the favor.

Just like you, I have many responsibilities and I am also employed. I suggest playing in Las Vegas in May, during the BCA 8-Ball Championships. Then, not only can you bust me, you can immediately spend my donation on all Sin City has to offer. In addition, the Cue Club's fine 9-foot Brunswicks will be neutral territory. I do apologize in advance if we will have to work a little around my tournament schedule, but I do not doubt that we will find an arrangement agreeable to both of us.

It sounds like it'll be a fun time. Do you agree?
