Rob, Lou said he likes 11-7 and has indicated he would play at the Derby. Though he hasn't said as much, I suspect he is likely soured to this boxing-like buildup where both contestants talk shit for months in a public forum. (And, quite frankly, who the hell wouldn't be?) Like anyone one of us, I'm sure he just wants an honest, gentlemanly contest without the bluster or testosterone, which seems quite reasonable to me.
Its real simple.. all we had to do is real quickly set the terms of the match.. how much ahead, rules and bet... what so hard with that... unlike you guys when I talk about or make a game..IT GETS PLAYED.... you guys like to bluff.. I have been all around the country playing and have never had the slightest argument when playing.. CAN ANYONE ELSE SAY THE SAME? telling everyone you want to wait till Derby is just a way to save face and when Derby comes he can tell everyone how he tried to play me but it just didn't work out.. I got to news for you.. if we came to terms about the game you wouldn't here a peep out of me about it... The thing Lou wants is an out...
We don't have to wait till Derby... I will come right to his poolroom and bust him on his pet table..
have a nice day
