One pocket is different... I think the skill required in the lag and the value of break are about equal, and we already play it alternate break.


Boxing analogy: Whoever wins the lag -- can spit the farthest, jump the highest or has the biggest pecker -- the loser has to stand still while the winner gets 9 shots to knock him out. If he doesn't, the roles reverse.

Now that I think about it, the analogy doesn't hold up... yeah, I'd go watch that.
