Still Sucking… August 12, 2008

As a pool player and blogger. I won only 3 out of 10 games last night. Utterly maddening since I wasn’t actually playing badly – just getting bad rolls at the worst times that handed games away on silver platters. Grrr. I thought I was going to have a good night too during practice. I had some runs where I could almost see the lines drawn on the table just like the Old Days, and I even made the 9-ball on the break once. But, it was not to be. Overall the team lost again too. Oh, and we lost one of our members it seems. She didn’t show up at any rate so one of the guys on the opposing team called around and found a friend of his to show up and substitute for her. He didn’t do too badly and even stopped one of them from going 10-0 against us. Hopefully he’ll decide to come back.

Yahoo! There’s something I can do better than you… I can suck worse at pool w/o working up a sweat. Beat that, pal.

I thought your shaft would be like the “Shaft of Ball Sinking +3” with a triple pocket with a roll of 20. Sorry, perhaps D&D terminology doesn’t work well in pool.

Well – you did way better than I would have!
I have no sense of pool – even after it being explained to me!

Easy to explain, KC. I think he just puts on trunks, eases into the water in case “the boys” can’t handle the thermal shock, and swims out to where the balls are.

How hard can pool be?

No, really, I suck ass at pool. Keep your Shaft of Ball Sinking +3 and do some damage w/ it, Enas.

I like The Shaft LK. It’s not a cure-all for my problems, but I do play better overall with it.

Pool is such an elegant game and I’ve enjoyed playing it ever since I was a kid.

KC, my boss is the same way. So is my Mom for that matter. Dad tried to teach her how to play many years ago and she says she just doesn’t understand it at all. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her pick up a pool cue except to move it somewhere else.

LOL… I won’t get into how frustrated my ex would get with me… he would even show me where to hit on the white ball to get the ball to go in a certain direction… but nope. After a while… I just bought the beer and let him play to his hearts content against worthy and skilled players.

Hey… do you mind if I add you to my blogroll?

Sure! Go right ahead. I’ll throw you onto mine too.

Woohoo… I made into another Moronsphere’s blogroll!!!
*my evil plan to infiltrate your club is coming along quit nicely*

Just kidding… and thanks!
