Nice to hear JB's followup. I wish he'd rejoin us. Several years back he was posting on here with some frequency, before one of our sick nut jobs ran him off. The nut job has been long since gone. So if you speak with JB, tell him that we'd all love him to post once in awhile; and that it's a kinder, gentler place now...From John after I texted him this thread:
That's pretty cool...you can tell em I appreciate their thoughts,, I'm good just getting old and have a few too many aches and pains , along with my eyes aren't what they once were,, Anyway I just explained my thoughts too you and I would like to go down somewhat undefeated and not some ol broke down pool player lol ,, I've watched too many of em in my lifetime
Dang I didn't know JB could play table tennis too..I thought it was just something to replace the pool table lol!View attachment 436292
John was in Philly about a week earlier. The family and I tried to show him a good welcome and took him to a nice dinner, followed by a trip to my local poolroom. Where.. he beat me in ping pong and then onepocket lol. Onepocket I expected but he snuck up on me in the table tennis. (He loves Bluegrass Billiards btw). When he posted his retirement I jokingly commented that I retired him! Lol. Sent him off a winner . Good dude.
All my older brother and his wife do is pickleball.
I'll be damned. I saw the picture above showing the pp table, but I'd assumed he'd put the pp table over top of his pool table. It's kinda like Jimmy Connors making a spaghetti strainer out of his tennis racket..G
Got rid of the pool table a while back and has ping pong in its place now.
