Nick,
I guess you also heard about the fun they had at Empire this weekend as well. It's a shame that two of the biggest pool rooms in the city are places where it's hard to avoid trouble.

Yea Steve I saw that on the news also. About Three weeks ago they had a big fight at Players and wrecked the place. Must be something in the water. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

I have lived in the DFW area for almost 13 years. When I heard the story about this Texas shooting I got very angry.

I have never heard of this "pool-hall"!!!

It is very interesting how, if there is ANY crappy 3x6 bar box or even a damn bumper-pool table, it is a POOL-HALL.

But only if something bad has happend there.
