    Tuscaloosa Squirrel

    Back in the late '70s, eary '80s, I was young and dumb with no responsibilities to keep me from going on the road with a pool player named Geese. We went down South and encountered quite a few characters along the way. Geese had a "steer" from Georgia who took him around to different action...

    REWARD + GoFundMe Acct. to catch Mike Surber's murderer

    I also spoke to Mike's brother recently, and I emailed him today. Somebody shared a link of a man in Georgia found with an anchor tied to him in the bottom of a lake. And it sure did look like this perp. Source...

    One Pocket HOF voting discussion -- post comments here, not in the voting thread

    I voted for Alex and Bustie, as they're both strong one-pocket players. What concerns me a little is that younger forum members may have no idea of the strength of the older players or those who have passed away. Everybody loves Alex and Bustamante, as do I, because we've seen them up close...

    Doc, look at this photo for Mike Surber murder suspect

    Somebody on AzBilliards shared this photo of a suspect who murdered Mike Surber. He sure does look like him. Interestingly, he goes by the name "Jeff Cooper." Didn't this guy call himself "Jeremiah Cooper"? Wow! This cannot be a coincidence.

    "Stormin' Norman" Wines Passes Away

    I don't know the circumstances of his passing, but he was a gentle soul to all who knew him. Hell of a barbox player. He won the Super Billiards Expo a couple years in a row. Broke like a cannon. A GoFundMe account has been set up to raise funds for his cremation...

    Reyes said the game is different now. He currently plays one-pocket, not his signature 9-ball event, because the former is where the money is now. Interesting that San Miguel Beer is a sponsor. :D Read more here -->...

    One-Pocket Hustler on CSI Las Vegas

    I usually go to sleep too early to stay up for my favorite TV shows, so I tape them. Last night, I was trying to watch my taped CSI Las Vegas TV show entitled "Dead Rails." It was all about pool. I couldn't believe it. What's more, the pool hustler named Jimmy, played by Christopher Atkins...
