Hi folks, I'm new to this board and looking forward to using it. I play in Dallas, mostly at CJ's. I use a Capone cue or sometimes a Schon.

As you probably already know, this is the best message board on the web (pool wise.)

Sit back, pop open a beer and enjoy the show.

Welcome. Do you play in a league?....randyg

We have players of all levels, a few instructors, engineers, teachers, soldiers & sailors, at least one PHD, some good hard workin' union folk, homemakers & a couple of Qmakers. AND NOW YOU. Welcome...JER

Well that's two nice choices of cues MrSmiley. Maybe you'll run into our Texas players on this board. I'm happy that Texas annexed the other states, as HDJ so hum'bly stated.
In Arizona were also refered to by a Texan as miscellaneous /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif it's in another thread.

~~~ Rod is glad he fits in somewhere, this won't help!

That's a couple of nice cues. No wonder you're smiling. Welcome!

Mr. Smiley, it's been said before but repetition is key. Welcome aboard and welcome again. Cues are sweet, ask as many questions as you'd like, bunch of smart folks on this board. The cuemakers are real knowledgable and some folks that are real fine shooters come here to. Enjoy yourself.

I am sooooo much in the same boat as you Rich. Matter a fact, I need the 8 for you.

I realize I should have introduced myself as new to this board, Jim Stokes,jacksonville fla. been playing for 40 years, 8 &amp; 9 ball apa, "7" in 8ball and a " 8" in 9ball. I have enjoyed reading this board for the last month and found your comment both entertaining and informative at times. I enjoy good mental gymnastics regarding pool and associated topics. I have a 9' Gold Crown at home and play with a Custom Dale Perry. Just wanted to say HELLO....SS

Why is this the best one Ken? Is it because it is the only one that still allows you to post?

05-08-2002, 01:18 PM
Jim Smooth Stoke,
A belated welcome to you also. You and I sound alike, but my 3 in golf is turning into a 5 or six. Pull up a chair pardner /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

05-08-2002, 02:49 PM
What a smart guy you must be to be using a Capone! Welcome from a fellow smart person (I also play with a Capone).

05-08-2002, 03:44 PM
Check the others Skippy...my name is PROUDLY, not "anonymously" displayed.

More than I can say for you. You never have answered the question; "Do you play pool?" Or do you just pee in one?

And why is the CCB the best? Less arguing, more knowledge, better humor and less of YOU.


Ken (always so nice to come home and read the "yack" fron Mr. Nobody)

05-08-2002, 08:55 PM
Thanks for the welcome. You and I have a mutual pool player friend in Cin-Bill Porter. He and I just spent a week together-he comes down to visit me in Dallas and his daughter in Austin. I will be coming up to Cin during the Derby City Classic in January.

I recently retired last June and play every day for 2 hours. For some unk reason, I have no interest in the leagues although I know Randy Gotlicker (sp?)very well. Just never got interested in them. Thanks for the welcome. Mr. Smiley

At least I give you a reason to live. An olive branch by the way is a peace offering. However being retarded as you are you would never know that.

05-09-2002, 05:47 AM

I certainly do hope you live close to the US Open site...I'll make the trip just to meet you. I'll even give you the 8.

BTW...to play, you will first have to relinquish the long skirt you use to veil your true identity. The tourney will be for CCB'ers, not "anonymous" posters and lurkers.


Ken (and thanks for giving me a "reason to live", you know, with me being "retarded" and all)
