View Full Version : Started league last night...

05-22-2002, 11:22 AM
Played my first night of league 8-ball since moving to Texas last night. We play 4 matches (4 man teams/play each team member one game.)

I won my first three matches rather easily then, during match 4, I'm down on the eight (my opponent has two ob's left on the table) and as I am lining up my shot, the guy takes his cue apart. Now you know and I know this is a concession of the match BUT LIKE THE DUMB ASS THAT I AM, I shoot anyway AND MISS!

The guy picks up a house cue and runs out for the win.

I'm not going to ask what I should have done. I KNOW what I should have done. I just felt if I got this off my chest, I would feel better. And I KNOW none of you will give me a hard time about being such a dipwad.

BTW- we won the overall by 9 balls.

Since you said you know better, Dipwad, we won't give you a hard time. Just don't let it happen again. LMAO. Rich R.

I lost a game the same way at the end of league last year. I guy I wasn't playing said "don't worry, he could miss this". Should've stood up, took a pull on my beer, walked around the table 20 and buried it. Missed, lost, screwed up. I was a dipwad first, you should've learned from my mistakes.

That's a new one to me.. and if what you did is the definition, then it fits..

We all have to learn.. and then put what we learn into practice.

Your turn to buy a round..
