I'll read it.

*****************

this is from Antony and Cleopatra:

<font color="red">CLEOPATRA

Let it alone; let's to billiards: come, Charmian.

CHARMIAN

My arm is sore; best play with Mardian.

CLEOPATRA

As well a woman with an eunuch play'd
As with a woman. Come, you'll play with me, sir?

MARDIAN

As well as I can, madam.

They say Mozart played pretty sporty too. In his will his billiard table was listed as of greater value than his piano.

Wally,

Wasn't Mary, Queen of Scotts, buried in her billiard cloth? It is somehow comforting to know that a spoiled, inbred, ultra small wasted monarch is wasting away wrapped in an unbacked piece of Simonois 860 in a regal place like Windsor or wherever....Wally, we gotta get a life.... /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Some of the pool tables from the Renaissance
are still around. Must be worth a fortune.
Also, tables from 17th century French monarchy.
I've seen pictures of them,not in person.
Billiards was the game of kings.
