We need people like Keith to attract viewers.Especially when American pool had players with personality like Willie Mosconi and Minnesota Fats. Their feud made for good TV viewing for mainstream Americans. Steve Mitzerak and his Miller Lite commercials also contributed to the popularity of pool. You don't see one of our American pool players on TV commercials today, with the exception of Steve Markle. I wonder how much he got paid for this.

People who have unique personalities, show emotion, and create an experience other than watching a ball slow roll into the pocket.
Pool needs celebrities.
They need to create a reality show where a pro matches up with a well-known celebrity and they play other teams of the same makeup.
Nobody is going to watch people with mullets and flip flops sitting on benches holding a cue waiting for another monk to shoot a 30-second shot that he takes 10 minutes looking over first like a surveyor for Mount Rushmore.
