    What a great sign. I'm surprised someone wouldn't want to refurbish it and use it for a poolroom. It's probably not known that it's available.

    I know they have an enormous sign graveyard near Vegas. Could it be from there? Did any rooms there close in the early 80's?

      I was thinking the exact same thing, Dick. It's interesting that they could remain there without being stolen (although one stand is empty). These were probably the last carry-over from the transition to public electricity.

      I used to live in NYC, and I always wanted to go up into that Times Square building-- the famous wedge-shaped one. Do you see those two people looking out the window up on it's 10th/11th floor? What a view.

            Larry ..I wish I had some pics of Redbirds place in San Marcos ..the upstairs portion before he closed that part to the public..it had that old style feel to it including several barber/shoeshine chairs..also since it was on top of a small town old style drug store with high ceilings..there were about 35 steps in the stairs to get up there..these are some great pics

                    Hi Sactown Tom: I'm sure that you intended to make a really cute funny, but I do not find any humor in your picture. First off, from what I can gather, league play is where it's at today. I have been away from from the pool scene for quite some time, but from what I have been able to glean from this forum and other sources, it seems that league play is quite popular and those who run/own leagues make a rather handsome income.

                    In addition, I am offended by your cartoon as it depicts the 9ball, 10ball , and 8 ball players. How very offensive. In fact, I think Steve should ban your post. I'm quite serious. Steve removed a post by the Ghost that was no where near as offensive. This IS a pool site, isn't it???? And you disrespect players like that??

                    Sactown Tom, I suspect you meant no harm and were merely trying to be humorous, but from someone who has a very strong sense of humor, I am disturbed by your post, rather than humored by it.

                    I am not a player, but I was involved with an upper-echelon player/champion/hustler for about 4 years and I did a lot of watching. I can tell you that 9ball players ain't no monkeys and the 10 ball and 8 ball players ain't no Neanderthal men, either.

                    Please consider deleting your post.

                      Dear, Dear Claire,

                      Please cut him some slack. There has always been back and forth between 9 ballers and one pocket players ll in good fun and, of course, most of us play both.

                      Now, in regard to league players, I am sorry but the picture is pretty well dead on accurate! I am sorry we disagree here but I do actually believe that comparing APA players to Neandertals does a big disservice to our stone age predecessors! If this means I have no chance of seducing you in a weak moment down the road, so be it! Some truths just can't be allowed to be ignored.

                      Respectfully,

                      DeeMan

                        League play accounts for around 200,000 weekly bar box players, that's a lot of beer and nachos. Also... did you know the USA has more Bar Boxes (7 foot tables) than any other country in the WORLD...??

                        Yes... league players account for a lot of Pool product and beer sales


                        In addition, I am offended by your cartoon as it depicts the 9ball, 10ball , and 8 ball players. How very offensive.

                        Would the charactors be better off as a little baby, toddler? and on up to the Beer dinking league player?

                        Me thinks the disrespect is to the apes not the players, but that's another post, Sorry if this comes across

                        Nothing but humor intended. if you really want me to delete I will. I will not willfully post anything that offends or disrespects anyone or post anything that may be perceived as such.

                        I am not a player, but I was involved with an upper-echelon player/champion/hustler for about 4 years and I did a lot of watching. I can tell you that 9ball players ain't no monkeys and the 10 ball and 8 ball players ain't no Neanderthal men, either.

                        Please consider deleting your post. Just let me know who the upper-echelon player/champion/hustler is... I am serious. PM me pls.

                          What the hell is wrong with you? Your remarks reflect mental illness. You are on a pool site, did you not know that? Man, are you that demented?

                          I have absolutely no intention of informing you of the info that you want to be apprised of. Don't hold your breath waiting for a PM from me. And I ask that other forum members not inform him, either. What the hell difference does it make? What are you, a drama queen?

                            P.S. Yes, I want you to delete your post. You say that you do not want to disrespect players, yet you continue to do so. What on Earth is your problem? I am baffled, befuddled, and downright stupefied as to how you could possibly think that you could disrespect pool players on a POOL WEB SITE and get away with it. Your shit ain't funny.

                              clare i like deeman am alittle surprised at your response
                              obviously it has hit a sensitive nerve
                              among us 1p players we have the smug attitude that we are the thinkers and the upper etchelon of pool players.
                              since it take skills from all disciplines to be a good 1p player.
                              9 ball players that can shoot and run racks have skill of course.(and us older players wish we could shoot like them .
                              since we cant we boast how well we "move" )
                              but it takes less brains to play 9,10,8 ball than 1p
                              thats reality. tough if you cant accept that
                              doesnt mean if checkers is your thing and you are achampion at it you have no skill but its not the same as being a grandmaster at chess.


                              all in all i think the post was sent in a good hearted intenet and i think you are all over the top


                              as the duck would say
                              "but i still wuv you"
                              just my 3 cents
