Thanks to all of you who remember Smorgass Bored.
Tampa Tubby, still my all time favorite poster.... Godspeed Smorg.
I always wondered why he chose me as his friend. He would take his annual vacation just to come hang out with me when I wasn't working or just come watch me play pool in a tournament.
Over a lifetime, different people become your friends and sometimes they pass like Doug, move or just move on but do you ever wonder how you came to be friends with your friends.
With Doug, it was peculiar because we didn't know each other here in New Orleans and became acquainted with each other through the newsgroup, RSB (rec.sport.billiard) and then AZB and finally in person on one of his "vacations". Truly an original.
Just now, I started writing about something I thought Doug would want me to write about and I erased it all. It had something to do with developing good health habits and such but Doug more likely would have wanted me to remember that we all deserve to have a good time while we are here.
Thank you for your friendship Doug. I remember you.
