What Can Brown Do For You?

Pool shark... for a minute anyway

Sunday, while over at Glen's for the SuperBowl, I was playing pool with Lisa. We were playing semi-official rules of 8-ball, whereby I was required to hit one of my balls before hitting any other ball. This was all well and good, but I had a nice shot lined up at the side pocket (the 6 ball was in front of the pocket), but the 8 ball was directly between the cue ball and the 6 ball. What's a guy to do? Hop over the 8 ball, of course. I lined up my shot, and managed to hop over the 8 ball (which was 8" away from the cue, land between the 8 and the 6, knock the 6 in, and had enough english on the cue to prevent it from going in... not that you can't have english when doing that shot, but the shot worked out perfectly, which is pretty darned amazing. Sadly, Lisa was the only one who saw it, and she's not admitting that I made it :)
