I started shooting pool when I was still in elementary school. My father had a pool table ... albeit a lousy pool table... in the basement, so I was able to learn how to bank, apply English, and jump balls at a pretty early age. (And have since forgotten most of those skills in my not-so-early age.) My husband and I still have a one-inch slate regulation-sized table, and we still play every now and then, but once upon a time, we played just about every evening. In those days, we were pretty darned good. Would you like to see us in action?
Okay, so I fibbed. (OUR felt isn't blue!)
Isn't that some of the most amazing pool shooting you've ever seen??? WOW. I think I'd better start practicing again...
Until next time, take care of yourselves. And each other.
