    High school football

    I remembered some comments about 2 months ago. They reminded me of my 1st high school game. It was the late 70's or early 80's, I'd been boooking about 8 or 10 years, I heard there was good live action at the play-off games. I've mostly been a lucky guy in my life, so off I went...

    T.J. Parker/Dale

    I've been playing pool in San Antonio for about two years. I'm often reminded of my friend R.Dale Sutton, I don't use the word friend loosely, he was one of the finest men I've been around. Dale had a tic that caused him to blink rapidly and often, not so much as he grew older.This tic got him...

    Is there a rule or does shot speak for its self ?

    opponent skimmed CB off stack, CB rolled deep into the pocket on a diamond table. I said "No rail", he said look at it, if the rail was there I would've hit it. He was right but I think he was wrong. I said fuggetaboutit ! no foul. What say you rules guys. P.S. Not important but 1st time I've...

    my new cue

    I been having a bit of a time adjusting to this shaft, it's one of the hollow ones (hd/ld/whatever). It seems to take a good bit of the collision induced English out of the hit. I'm having to relearn some banks, others are fine. I now understand why when some people asked me how to make certain...

    T.J. Parker

    Since I'm laid up for a while, I'll write about working for T.J. Parker. I went to work at Parkers lounge / pool room in about 1963/64. The pool rooms were closing at midnight. The operators were trying to get the city to let them stay open. T.J. was very active in that. Enough Politics. I was...
