Well, there are dogs and there are DOGS. I'm talking about DOGS!Why denigrate man's best friend? Jimbob, I thought you were better than that...
A pool tournament phrase meaning a poor shot always bugged me for that reason..."He dogged it"...just not fair to the noble canine...not fair at all.
Baloney! I want to see all of these pool peoples' tax returns,......... NOW!What's this football thing you write about? Another of those far left violent political demonstrations?
Oh well, many thanks for the Carpenters...another talent removed from us too soon. What a beautiful voice she had...
No racial divides in the world of pool. Nothing but pool. If you have the talent, nothing else matters. In a time flashback to 2017 I watched a 16 years old polish phenom named Wiktor Zielinski lay a beating on a much more experienced pro...playing fast and loose in what is now the fastest european tour finals in history. The kid plays so fast the commentators have trouble keeping up. Amazing stuff! Note the total lack of political views being expressed...
There is boo-coo money made in this country that no tax is ever paid on. For example, truckers delivering loads to warehouses pay "lumpers" $100-$150 to off load their trailers every day. That's thousands of truckers across the country every single day! And what about all the "garage bands" that make "relatively low" amounts every time they play a gig? And how about waitresses tips? Think Flo lists hers?Had to LOL at that one. I do know of a player, not one of the top pros, who was good at declaring expenses, but "forgot" to declare some of his winnings. The IRS tapped him on the shoulder and gently reminded him of his error.
He was foolish...a top pro is wise enough to declare all of his tournament winnings while "forgetting" about many of the "friendly wager" games for relatively low stakes.
Not that they make big bucks anyway...the best of the pros might make $250K in tournament winnings before expenses.
It is a sport done for the love of the game.
(edit) Did you happen to watch young Wiktor at work? Wouldn't it be fun to take him to a Cleveland bar where pool action dominates? Why is he so good so young? Natural ability, plus some countries actually have state sponsored training for the less well known sports.
Young Wiktor breaks and runs a 9 ball rack as fast as anybody I've seen, much faster than most. Tells me he thinks fast as well...no hesitation on knowing where the cue ball will end up for the next shot.
1. "C'mon, man?" You must be THE BIG GUY! Yes, Ford was way better looking than the Edsel.C'mon, man....even you have to admit that's much better looking than the Edsel that was based on the same body...to the point that the sunliner is, considering the time, actually a good looking car...for a land yacht.
(edit) Always with the continental kits...like it's trunk wasn't big enough for a spare?
Speaking of continental kits...I suspect the last Kutie had hers altered by photochop...
