Default Mini- Beast in the East

Friday I drove two hours from NYC area to Philadelphia to play Mitch at BlueGrass Billiards. Nice room with GC3s, good burgers, friendly staff. Iron man Mitch finally quit after 11 hours of play.

Saturday Darryl drive to Drexeline Billiards from Baltimore to challenge the Pilot. Darryl is a super nice guy to play. Donít hang any balls because Darryl will dig em out.

The tables at Drexeline are GC4s and play much better than the tables at Bluegrass.

Thanks to both Mitch and Darryl for the action. I had a good time and enjoyed some fine One Pocket from both guys.

Thanks Jim I had a blast also! You played hard and deserved the win. Before someone asks.. Jim got the cheese! He got me two games after 11 tough hours of play. He was up one game with one last game to play so I had my chance to end even but I was toast lol. I tapped the ball unintentionally 3 or 4 times in that last game!! At one point the score was 5 (Jim) to -4 (me). I came back and got the game to 5 balls a piece but couldnít finish! Nice shooting Jim. Next time itís my turn again and I will try to pocket a ball for a change!! Lol. Glad you liked the room.

Ha!! Feel free. It will only be worse for you 😆.

Yeah Jet knows the racket!!! Super nice guy. He and Jimmy Fusco were the best of friends for many years.

Thanks Jim. That is a great room, isn't it? They keep about 4-6 tables reserved for nothing but one pocket. I read recently that they recovered all 20-24 tables at one time. We played on their tightest table which was also super fast and took some gettin used to.

I very much enjoyed the trip, it's fun to do that once in a while and get to play someone different than the local guys you always play with. You have a great opportunity to play lots of people and in various places, that's great.

You played very well, and while I was competitive for a while, I couldn't keep it up for the whole day. Mostly, I lost the CB too much on that fast table.

It was very enjoyable, you are a gentleman, and a straight shooting son of a gun.

Thanks for the experience.

Darrell

Mitch, two games down is a nice hook to keep him on your line. No fish can survive long above water, let alone pilot a plane. Don't let him play with a fishbowl helmet next time.

Good shooting you two.

Jim, I would also like to play you again. I live between the north side of Chicago which is where Chris's is located and the south side of Chicago which is where Red Shoes (south side suburb) is located. I frequent both pool rooms. If your flying into Midway on Thursday, you'll probably be lodging on the south side of Chicago. I can meet you at Red Shoes on Thursday or Friday, just let me know the time. Win or lose or even if we don't play, I know a few restaurants and will buy you a good Windy City meal.
