Happy Holidays. Here's what's left of Bob's Billiards....Keith's original home room. Bob's was Vehicle Registration and the Collectible Toys building. Picture was just taken yesterday.

Keith, care to share a story that happened at Bob's?

I'll email JAM but I think she and Keith may be staying away for a bit. I've thought about it myself, all things considered.

A lot of incredible memories in that building. Plenty of characters came in and out of that place. Regulars I remember were Keith, Mark McCready, Jan Cane, Dean, Jeremiah, "Spider", Isaac, Little Jeff and many more. Those passing through included Jimmy Mataya, "Waterdog", Efren Reyes, "Big Sam", Mike LeBron - far too many to list here.

Great room.

Thank you Pushout and I know what you mean.....

I used to bend tacos and fold burritos right across the street at Tito's Tacos when I was 15-16 (around 1984-85??). At the time, I was not a "pool player" but enjoyed the game. I remember hearing all kinds of tall tales about pool, most of them were about Keith....

Bob Wallace and I share the exact same birthday; month, day and year. What a great guy he was. I haven't seen Audie in years. He was not a bad little player.

I came across this by accident...
..it made me realize how well AZB is run...the moderators do a great job
without being Nazis about it....but it is essential to have moderators.

The toy collectibles that replaces the pool hall just may have some of
Keith's toys in there....afterall, he was a prodigy...probably busted a few
road players before he was old enough to say 'goo'.:smile:

I would love to see JAM and Keith posting on here again.
They are much loved by many....Keith has a way with words...
...and JAM invented the darn things.

Good thread, Ghostball, but I'm not going for your math about when you
were a 15 year-old.:smile:

Anaheim California, at the corner of Beach and Ball.

Actually just West on ball from the corner, across the street from ToMs TaCos. Someone should also take a photo of the Orange County Sports Arena on Lincoln near Brookhurst (which is now a thrist store). Ronnie Allen was the house man. I had a lot of fun there as well as Bob's. I sweated (along with Keith and Little Man Jeff) Efren playing Little Sergio one handed 9 ball there around 1984. Had no clue who Efren was and he did not get the best of it with his matchup with Little Sergio!

Yes, I remember Tito's. I never went there because I really like the Mexican food place kitty-corner from Bob's. But this reminded me of a funny story.

"Little" Jeff was about to leave the pool room and noticed some young folks hanging out behind his car. He asked them to move so he could back out. They told him to take a hike. Well Jeff gets in the car, starts it up and throws it in reverse. The kids scatter and Jeff is now chasing them around the lot. Unfortunately, the cops were just finishing a taco break at Tito's and saw the whole thing. Needless to say, Jeff got in a bit of trouble.

Jay:

"Audie" rings a bell. I was trying to think of the name of one regular Shirley and I met, but I think his name was "Auggy". Little guy guy that played barefoot.
