New old guy here from the Mojave Desert. Have not played in about 50-years and getting back into it with my young grandkids. Already learned a lot here and know I'll learn more.
Where in Florida?Since I just came out of lurking to post on another thread I thought it was time to say hi. I am James and I'm from Papillion, Nebraska.
I'm 51 and though I've had a table for 17 years I really just started playing about three months ago. I had originally bought the table more as a piece of furniture because it fit the room (and I always had a table in the house growing up). Covid made me realize what I was sitting on and I started diving in deep and fast. The strategic aspect of shape is like playing chess, figuring out the english and power of a stroke is like solving a puzzle, and sinking balls is viscerally satisfying; I am LOVING the game.
Just had my table recovered and decided to have them come back and move it. I have a few tough angles that require a short cue. It's a big room so I'm having the table turned 90 degrees and I'll have minimum six feet on each side. My wife said "you're taking over the whole room!" and my son and I pointed out that I'm the only one that uses the room! lol
I'm looking forward to visiting my dad in Florida and playing him since he's played all his life.
Welcome to AZ Billiards.I've been checking this page out for quite sometime and would like to say hello to everyone. I used to play a lot when I was a teen but my work took over my life so I haven't been shooting pool as much as I wanted to.
I'm 32 from PI and just recently bought my first cue (Al Bautista) and looking forward to improve my game. Happy hustlin everyone!
