Come One Come All

06:01 am – Fri Mar 21
Welcome to a place where pool reigns, the best player wins (on any given day), and everyone gets better. Please join me, challenge me, learn with me and defeat me. If you chose to join this league you will strengthen pool for the future. I learned to play this as a bar game, but I chose to see it as an art. You will never again see billiards as the preferred form of entertainment for the nightlife. However, every time you show a kid a bridge, help with a bank, or hang a cue over his head so he wont jump up you help our future remember our past. Keep the fun in pool however you must, but for those who want more, who need the challenge…
We are waiting
