I met Bristol through Danny many years back along with Ryan McCreesh, all stand up people. Such good memories.I spoke with "Bristol Bob Begey" yesterday and, of course, he is plenty sad over the passing of his dear friend. I've been doing a series of Storyteller interviews here locally and Bristol Bob's interview is scheduled for sometime during the next month or so. Bob said he was supposed to be doing another KD overhaul also was supposed to begin in the next month or so. Bob had a special ability with Danny as far as motivating him. So sad that this won't be happening.
An fyi to all who have commented on how good the book, Running The Table is (it's a favorite for me, too). However it came to be they got L. Jon Wertheim who was a head writer at Sports Illustrated to write the book and the result was superb. BTW, Wertheim these days is a regular reporter on CBS's 60 minutes. In fact, I believe it was Jay Helfert who tapped into Wertheim's love for pool and some previous dealings which helped to get him to do the recent 60 minutes piece on SVB and the current state of pool. Do I have this right, Jay?
This whole situation with Danny's passing, even with the passage of time I'm afraid it's going to sting forever. He was that dynamic and memorable.
Here's a pic with them at my house from at least 10 years ago.
