Default One Pocket anyone...?

I am currently working in Boston, Mass. I cannot believe after soliciting everyone in several pool halls I can't even get a game. Is this an epidemic? Is the dollar so tight people cannot even afford to play for 10-20 a game. I go back to work on Friday and tomorrow I am going to see if the people of Rhode Island want to make a little money- God knows I am trying to give it away.

I even called the founder of this site and left a message for him to call. I will drive all the way to New Hampshire to find a game if one exist.

Two years ago I came here and it was the same action. I just want to thank the one guy who actually stood up and played- Owner of Country Club- so thanks...

If you called me, I must have missed it. Try me again; I would play this Saturday if you are available.

The Ghost is way too smart & tough. When he was in Southern California I offered to play some cheap if he came up to Hard Times in Sacramento. He wanted a plane ticket, that way it would be all profit. Somebody else won my Social Security check that month. I may have a chance with my new Chuck Starkey cue when I get used to it.

Hi Joe! I actually did end up playing a little one pocket for a few hours Thursday with Mike, and he mentioned Providence, and I mentioned your name. I just have precious little free time -- maybe next time Mike is available it would work for him to come down to RI. You guys should exchange a PM with your contact info...
