I have a friend who has lived in the Nashville area for over ten years. He has stated year after year that JOB's was on a downhill slide. The last time I spoke to him, several weeks ago, he didn't think it could survive another year based on the mismanagement and failure to keep the equipment in shape. I imagine that downhill slide has become a nosedive. Too bad.

Yea, ever since Blaylock(he name was JOB) sold out its went down hill. Last time i was there with 12squared the pit table was in pretty bad shape. Used to be a bunch of strong players there with plenty of action. I hear its mainly league bangers in there now. Too bad.

My friend in Tennessee is currently 68 years old and still plays a super solid game of one pocket. He mentioned that some of the better one pocket players he was competing with when he first moved to the Nashville area were a bit older than him and have since passed away. Another player, probably the best one who frequented JOB's named "Pickle," is currently incarcerated for a zillion years. Yet, my friend still goes to JOB's to play once a week in a league but gets depressed each time because of the deplorable conditions. We've all seen those pool rooms where a great owner dies and the new owners know nothing about how to run a pool room. Maybe JOB's needs that cable TV reality guy who comes into a failing business and revamps it for the current owner.

Bobby Pickle was a great player and great fun to watch. Could beat anybody on a bar box when he was right. Beat Effern in the 9 ball at DCC once. Won and lost thousands playing pool. One of those super high octane guys. Unfortunately in and out of prison a lot. Bad druggie. The last deal, him and a couple other guys were on a 3 day drug bender and kidnapped this guy to rob him, guys name was Kashola...lol, got caught and they threw away the key this time as far as i know http://www.ask4direct.com/InfoRead.a...&InfoID=648384
