I once gave an underage (17) hooker, who I met in K.C, Mo,...a ride back to San Jose to reconnect with her long lost mother, who lived there... She looked like a 21 year old Playboy bunny...And yes, I was smitten, but not quite enough to give up my happy home.fred bentivegna said:The statue of limitations should be up by now.
Clem went to jail for transporting a hooker across state lines. "Trasporting a female for immoral purposes." Same federal law that the black fighter Jack Johnson got busted with.SJDinPHX said:I once gave an underage (17) hooker, who I met in K.C, Mo,...a ride back to San Jose to reconnect with her long lost mother, who lived there...

She said she wanted to quit that lifestyle, get a job, and go legit., and I really wanted to help her achieve that goal... Mr. Cautious that I was, at every state line, I would put her on a bus to make the crossover. I was sure (?) that would absolve me of the federal, "crossing a state line with a minor" law.
A younger good friend of mine, (Joe Kaptur, where are you ?)...also became smitten with her, and they soon fell madly in love... Sadly about 6 mos. after Elaine's arrival in San Jose,..she was killed in a car accident. She was by then...18.
Joe was unconsolable, and left town shortly after her demise... He was my good buddy, and he loved one pocket... He would put up his last sawbuck, to go in with me, even if I were playing God (or Ronnie Allen).....He did visit me/us in Phx about 20 years ago..but we lost touch with each other...I'm writing this in hopes some of my old S.J. friends may know of his whereabouts ...Joe would be around 60 or so now... I would really like to re-connect with him. (we nick-named him "Santa Clara Joe")...Joe couldn't make a ball, but he loved being a name player..
PS..If there is a Mrs Joe Kaptur now, and she should get wind of this...please disregard this message...
I dont remember everything about my foray into LeCue in Houston. Jeff Sparks rings a bell but I dont know if we played. I remember Duke being in there. Dont remember if we played. I played Greg Stevens, but never got down with Jersey Red. We were probably too friendly.MARK..HOU TX said:Fred.. Did you ever play some the Houston guys besides Jersey Red..Jeff (Tall Jeff) Sparks, John (Duke) Dowell, Keith (Squirrel) Thompson, FlyBoy..I believe Squirrel won the Johnson City All Around 72 or 73..not sure and also James (The Sniper) Christopher)
fred bentivegna said:In 72 Keith Thompson and I played daily at Johnston City. I was giving him a ball playing one pocket and took the 7 playing 9 ball. He won the all around playing with my cue stick.

Keith won the 1970 9 Ball division at Johnston City and the 1970 All-Around.
In 1972, Danny DiLiberto won the All-Around.

If you don't post for a spell, at least we have a clue on where to start looking for you.
I promise, I'll write to you often. Keep you up to speed on what the fellas are doing and what not.

Jeff is still around...he spends a lot of time bay fishing.jay helfert said:I knew Jeff Sparks from when he was out in California. I heard he quit pool to sell cars. Whatever became of him? James Christopher was the best player in Texas back then (in the 70's and 80's). I also played Flyboy (Jimmy Spears) a couple of times in my poolroom in Bakersfield.
