There was a nice article about Jeremy Jones in the Houston Chronicle this past Sunday. Did anybody happen to read it? My question is why was it on the front page of the "feature" section and not the sports section? The sport not only suffers from an image problem but also suffers from "gender" bias.

Went to their web site but they charge you to view archive material. /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Anyone here that is a subscriber can access free. Maybe someone could copy/paste for us.

Would you care to elaborate on this? I am not sure at all what you mean.

I read the "gender bias" comment to be a reference to the question of whether pool is a sport or a game. Maybe I took it wrong.

that he is local and the event is long over with would be my guess as to why it's not in the sports section

maybe their sports department will now consider pool 'sports worthy' in the future

still a strong statement for Houston pool and of course JJ but the front page of any section of a major newspaper is super cool imo

Right on that Billy. Only way I could make front page is to become a serial killer.

I drowned a box of corn flakes in a bowl of milk this morning. Does that qualify me??? /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
