Stu, Looking forward to your writing, Thank you, Guy...I felt I went outside my comfort zone when I attended this press conference, but aside from one or two moments, I was pleasantly surprised at how entertaining and well-structured it was. Emily ran the show well, and the players, in general, spoke well.
In addition, I got to greet numerous friends and exchange pleasantries. Glad I went.
… let the games begin.
Totally agree, yet there are people that like that kind of crap talk *.Sadly I’ve got one of them in my family. You don’t see this in golf or tennis. I don’t believe it’s helping the sport in terms of image or monetarilyI have not watched the press conference yet but will later today. I have been, in the past, disappointed when the back-and-forth between Team Europe and Team USA resembles a pre-fight presser before a boxing match. I just don't care for that style of press conferences. To each their own, I guess. It's okay to fire verbal shots at each other if done in a funny manner, but when it gets ugly, it's not a good look for pool.
I think the people who love pool don’t really care too much. People outside the game probably wasnt watching anyways. Pool will never be “big time” and I’ve accepted that. I’ll take the good with the bad.Totally agree, yet there are people that like that kind of crap talk *.Sadly I’ve got one of them in my family. You don’t see this in golf or tennis.

* if done in a funny manner it’s ok but that’s a slippery slope
I don’t think it was a ”pity party” I think deep down Earl wishes pool would be more respected than it is. I think he considers himself one of the game All time greats, and him playing in the mosconi cup is just “whatever” to some.Earl threw himself a pity party.
Oooooo, poor me, people heckle me.
Reap what you sow, dude.
I'm surprised that I was able to lose respect for him, I thought zero was as low as it would go.
