along the lines of what JB originally posted, one good saying that is so true (not only about pool but a lot of things in life)

"You don't know what you don't know..."

For those who have not heard this expression before it would be like:

"If I had known that he was not going to miss a bank during the whole match, I would not have played him!"

(you don't know...what you don't know...)

My favorite quote.

I just heard this yesterday!! The man at the hardware store told a guy that he was trying to make chickin salad out of chickin shit:eek::lol JB


The first time I ever heard that was a long time ago. I've been a Dolphins fan my whole life and being reminded of this actually seems appropriate because of what happened this weekend:

"You can't make chicken salad out of chicken s---. Name me a great player we have besides Danny [Marino]. You can't. We were No. 2 in the passing game. No. 2 in the passing game! How did we do it? With our players, you tell me, how did we do it? We have to throw. We couldn't run. And do we have a great running back? No.'' - offensive coordinator Gary Stevens after losing in the 1997 playoffs

Okay, I need help with this one Rod. If it's golf I have NEVER golfed, because I have always been afraid I would like it, and time for golf would have to come directly out of my pool time, so I have always stuck with pool because as it is I never have enough time for pool lol.

In other words.... Big money ( long green ) doesn't last long in the hands of rookie ( green )

How are you, Mr. Brumback? I see you're still paddling everyone in rail first pool.
Officially, I am a tremendous fan. Alf

I think it was Eddie Kelly who was talking about Eddie Taylor and said, "When Eddie Taylor stands at the table, it looks like if you bought a new table he should come with it."

Anyway, one pocket aficionados, nice to be back hanging with you.

Keep it civil. Alfie

My best friend in high school liked to ask......
"Do you understand everything you know?"

After he graduated, he went on to collage on an IBM scholarship.
Back then, a computer filled a large room, and cost millions.

To this day I cannot listen to myself or anyone without that
question in mind. True knowledge is only obtained through
understanding. What most of us "know" is merely what
someone has told us and we "believe".

I like "Smarter than a red chicken"
Have no idea if reds are smarter than white ones but it makes me chuckle once in a while.

I like that. There is one other one along the same lines: "It's not about recognition. It's about mastery."

In pool that means sure you see the right shot or pattern when someone else does it and think you know something. But until you've mastered it for yourself you don't *really* know it.
