Thank you very much Joe, I truly appriciate it my friend. I wasn't in it for the money and I think you know that. John is a stand up guy and will be a great example and ambasador for the sport we all love. It was my pleasuer and not really a gamble for me. I brought along a couple of cues to sell to cover my expenses and the stake if we went 2 and out. It really didn't matter to me. They been laying around for a couple of years anyway. They were made to be played just like all cues. Sold one the second day I got here. That covered $1,100 of the stake.
This has been the most wonderful experience of my life and I was happy to share it with all my Az friends. John was our horse in this race and he won it for us ALL!
