Everyone likes to read good action stories.About dropped out of my chair while watching the first installment. At the end of that one when he stated describing Eddie O'Connell.
He hit out of the park describing Eddie, and the way he went about action. I ran with Eddie about a year and every road trip we took, he had it locked up before we even left to get in the car to head out. He had owned a nice room in Greensboro that had great action going on daily, but one night there was a fight in the parking lot and someone pulled a gun and left one of the participants dead. City shut the place down and Eddie had to sell. It reopened under different ownership, but never the same. I was running in and out of Greensboro and Eddie was moving me around taking people off and just having fun and making the nut to survive. He called me at Collisiem Billiards for me to come over and pick him up one early Saturday morning and we head out. First thing I ask him where are we going and who are we taking off. We are headed to Charlotte to watch action today. Another one of our friends had called Eddie and told him that he (Tim Daniels ) and Billy (Wade Crane) were headed to play Denny Cercy. One hell of a match , Billy was getting the better of that match for the first few hours, then a fight broke out towards the front of the room and both guys pulled guns on each other. Everybody ducked for cover . The owner of the room got between them and pulled his own gun and the heat sorta just went out of the air. For some reason Billy didn't play as well after that happened. They both stopped the play and made it happen at a latter date. Eddie asked me about what I saw when all that was taking place. I looked over at him and asked, if that was all staged just to jar Billy, because he was playing so well. Eddie winked and said I was catching on quickly. Thanks for posting all of this brought back some memories I hadn't thought of in quite awhile.
I don't like to read anything about jarring someone else, especially when guns are pulled out and it's planned.
That is a piece of shit move.
