    I say Football!

    It’s seventy-nine degrees today in Baton Rouge, gasoline is $1.99/ gallon, and Louisiana is having a wet dream over the LSU Tigers and a baby-faced quarterback who will run the table against Georgia tomorrow in Atlanta and then get the Heisman Trophy two or three days...

    Yes, I think the print needs to be larger - and as an old sign painter I immediately noticed that the pale blue type does not show up well on the gray background. Not enough contrast. The gray background is just a bad choice. Even the black type suffers on it. Nothing goes good on gray - it's neither...

    replied to Bad rolls?????
    The rolls - both good and bad - come and go, and every player has his own definition of what a bad roll is. Sarcastic losing players like to say 'Nice roll!' in response to a good shot by an opponent. Aggressive players who shoot hard and move a lot of balls get the most rolls, both good and bad. Tony...

  • JRB obviously thought he could play some one-pocket. Could he?

    Hendy is right on it, as usual. I would look at the 3 ball to see what is available and then I would do it.

    Note to J.R.: see the Ghost about which way is down table.

    Thanks, Kid, for your attention to my post. That's the shot I proposed, except that I intended to leave the cue ball near the side pocket, with the 5 ball blocking his view of the 13. I still like it.

    If I go up-table with Jojo the 13 will be gone before I get back. So, I will bank the 7 to around the side pocket and send Jojo to the long rail where the 5 ball will protect the 13. The 5 won't bank.

    I'm with Darmoose. Play off the 4 and send Jojo two rails back to where he is. No need to disturb the other three balls. I would sure hate to give up my seventh ball.

    replied to Wwyd gambling here
    If I bank either the 9 or the 14, I'm not confident that I can navigate all that traffic to get Jojo safely up-table. However, I think I can bank the 12 toward the 1 and bank the 3 across to my side as I go up-table with Jojo. Some will find that too passive, but I like it. Does that make me a nit?

    Tigers and Tide

    You better believe there is joy in Mudville. Louisiana is in love. Ed Orgeron and the LSU Tigers have gone into Tuscaloosa and beaten Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide for the first time in eight years, and are now acknowledged as the best college football team in...
