Gene "The Glove" Catron is on the list, so I thought I would post a pic, hope nobody minds. He was always around the pool rooms in Tampa back in day.

Congratulations, you are the second chap to win a Banking With The Beard T-Shirt along with Terry Ardeno. I assume Large would be ok?
Here is a picture of "The Goose"

Jay,

Dave and I were good friends, and your profile of him is very accurate, He looked like a school teacher or something not a pool player and only played in easy games, the 4 years I spent with him in Vegas. He awalys seemed to have 1 or 2 expensive cues for sale, his personal cue was a beatiful Tad worth 4-5K 15 years ago. Fred Guarino told me he passed away from food poising something about bad fish, it was suspicious story, Dave at the time had a few very expensive cues and watches(my other hobbie and Daves) and when they found the body everything was gone. He didnt have any family except an Aunt in Wy. with a small house he would go to every june -aug he was in route there when he passed away. Fred nor I believed the food poisn story, I lost a good friend, he moved good and taught me alot I took outside the pool hall in life.

yet again your spot on Billy Teeter was awalys looking for a game, he made a huge score just a couple years ago, it was WELL into the 5-figure area- I wont say as its not my business, but it wasnt from a pool player, it was from a 45 year old guy who turned into a tweeker(speed) at that age and had $$$, they worked on setting up the game for almost a year. I suspect he inheareted(SP?) a pile and it changed him for the worse, I saw the "Mark" play about 6 months before the score and they said he lost 80 pounds, he makes Grady look over weight, he couldnt make 2 balls in a row. They took their time and made their move when it was right, Billy aint a bargain to play, he is strong and gets stronger for more $$$.

He was making cues for a while and they play good. He bought a pool room sold it, then a bar with pool tables and ran that for a few years, he was doing very good with it and sold it, now he is back fiddling around with making cues and looking for action, he is a good guy and friend. He dosent travel far though, never comes to LA, Vegas etc.

Captain Hook,

Thanks for edifying us with those neat pictures. It's nice to be able to look back and see how young everybody looked when they were...young

Man, how fast time flies. I remember reading about lots of theses guys back in the early 1970's when I first fell in love with pool. Some I've met in person, many I have not. But when I see "flash back" photos, it brings back a lot of fond memories.

Thanks for taking the time to post them.

No problem, I like remembering old times. I was just a kid back in the 70's
when I started playing at Bakers and I met so many folks back then I can't even remember, sometimes I did not even know who they were.
