Eight Ball in the Side Pocket…

I have a great story that I would like to share with you.  When I was younger, I called my Dad so excitedly and told him how I was playing pool regularly for a while now and was getting pretty good!  He took interest to this statement and took me to a shop and bought me a custom-made purplicious pool stick.  Yay! We then continued on to the nearest pool hall so he could play with me.  Let me tell you, this was not a fun experience.  He ran the table on me and I hardly got a shot in!  I was so shocked and told him that I thought I was improving!  He looked me straight in the eye and stated firmly: “Nadine, if you continue to play pool with people that suck, you will never get better.”  What he said at the end of our game was advice that I take with me in each and every aspect of my life and feel it has helped shape me to be the person I am today.

Eight ball in the side pocket… Crack slut? NO. Pool shark? YES.

Thanks Boston Bob.
