A reason to watch the classics

I just watched Jeanette Lee drop the 9-ball on the break in the 10th rack of the 1999 WPBA Classic Tour finals against Allison Fisher, bumping her lead to 6 racks to 4. This is why I love The Black Widow.

She smoked her 7th rack as well and won the 1999 championship.

In my next life I'm going to be a pro billiards player, dammit.

I love Jeanette Lee and Allison Fisher. Only sport I watch.

I definitely could see myself devoting a chunk of time to be a pro pool player... I love billiards. We have several leagues in the area that take up our time...

Avi - My favs Jeanette and Ga-Young Kim. Because they're both so feisty. :)

Waaaaaaayne - I'm coming to your town so that I can shoot me some pool. There used to be billiards where I live, but the businesses keep going under. Not enough habitual interest. (And, wait, where do you live? That'd probably be helpful.)

Avi - *My favs ARE...

Sigh. Don't give me shit because I don't have a blog template that allows me to edit my comments without posting the whole thing over again. Please? We'll consider your lack of shit my birthday present.

I am the worst pool player in the entire world. I can throw some mean darts, though...

I CANNOT WAIT until I come visit so we can get drunk, smoke cigars, and throw darts while our vision is blurred. Wheeeeeeeee!
