Hello Everyone,

I first would like to congratulate all that entered from the CCB. It takes guts to put yourself under the gun and to have your placement posted. Although, I was very disappointed with mine.

I brought my wife Heide and son Christ pronounced with a small i. I had the honor and privalage to meet Fran, Carol, Barbara, SPetty, Cuechick, RIP, RandyG, Fred Agnir, Spiderman, and Preacherman from the board.

I also talked with Tommy Kennedy whom I haven't seen in a long time, Johnny Archer, Ralph Souquet(sp?), Earl Strickland, Jose Parica, Bustamante(sp?) and Buddy Hall watched me run 3 racks of 9ball and lose the damn set. Didn't talk to him.LOL I think he jumped when I broke.

First let me say the pictures of Fran and Carol don't do any justice for them. They both are so much more pretty in person.

I did sweat a match of Fran's. She won it handily. She played it perfect. Her mechanics are straight and pre-shot routine is flawless from shot to shot. Her professionalism to her opponent and to us guests, were to the highest standards. Watched her lose her heel normally embarressing to a woman but Fran laughed it off. What a great attitude.

As far as looks go her hair in the pictures doesn't do justice to seeing it in person. Her hair is full of soft flowing locks. She also has big blue eyes, the kind you can fall into. A warm smile and a fun and pleasant personality.

Carol, what can I say? This woman is full of life and fun as the day is long. She makes you feel like your the only one in the room. Her energy is like a 426 Hemi coming off the line. All I can say is I love her to pieces, my wife and son love her too. She's very pretty and weighs next to nothing. Her husband Jim must have his hands full trying to keep up to her.LOL Her husband Jim is layed back and extremely cool. He and I BS'd a bit and I really like him. Carol is there for you when the chips are down and in victory. This woman is the kind of friend that everyone wishes they had. She also changes clothes every 5 minutes. Everytime I saw her she was wearing something different. LOL

Barbara, is tall and built like a brick [censored] house. LOL She's also one of the most sweetest woman I've ever met. She's funny and caring. She sweat a match of mine and was laughing for some odd reason, everytime I broke. I feel bad for not getting to her 2:30 match. I was so tired and needed the mental rest for the loser bracket. I apologized and she made me feel so comfortable with it. She's a gem. Her husband Pete, a very big guy with long hair. He was a guy that when you looked at him he could make you wet your pants. LOL After talking with him it was like he's one of us. He's a lot of fun and a great guy too.

SPetty, she's clueless. She bought a Bungee off of me for $40. LOL. Just kidding, she's very sweet and supportive. She sweated a few of my matches and without her I wouldn't have even met the CCBers. She had names with match times and was so organized. She was so sweet to my wife and son. I liked her a lot. She needs to stop putting her game down. I watched her play and all I can say she's one step away from moving up. She had the most heart of any player on the board, including myself.

Cuechick, did well in the tourney and is Blonde with Blue eyes. She was always on the go, listening to her headphones and took time to stop and tell me what was going on. I still owe her a Margarita. She did a great job.

RandyG, is such a nice man. He didn't look strange as the others do in them shooter glasses and is quite the professional also. He said some really nice things to me and I felt honored by them too, coming from a man that teaches so many students. I wanted to ask him if he saw anything that would help me improve, but didn't want to put him on the spot or remind him of work. Although, I think he enjoys his job tremendously. His picture doesn't do him any justice either. He looks much younger in person.

Spiderman, I think he's a brain. He was totally classy and extremely tall also. He made us take pictures and I was glad to do so. He is very nice and although I didn't see him play he knew what he was talking about. He is a friend and made me and my family feel important. He's definitely a family orientated man. I could tell he's much smarter than I. I didn't get the honor of meeting his mother but she's undoubtable proud. I wish I had his hair , height and that cool camera, if I could see enough to use it. I'm blind you know. Fran was right, I felt wierd there.

Preacherman, I took a picture with him and a guy from France. I thought he would give me the serman thing but didn't bring it up once. I like him for that. I don't have anything against it but It's not something I like to talk about. He was a handsome young man and well groomed. I liked him.



Fred Agnir, He was one of my favorites. I sweat a match of his also. Fred is respectfull and has a lot of class. He has the stuff true champions are made of as I watched him play. He was in a very bad spot in the tourney. He didn't give up and fought his way back to the hill hill position. He didn't win the match due to some bad rolls for him and good rolls for his opponent. He would disagree with the theory but we all know this exists. Dispite the outcome he truely out played his opponent. It was then I saw the champion in him. He was missed by myself, those last few days in Vegas. He's smart and very clean cut. He stopped to say goodbye and I wish we could have hung out a while. I wanted very much to buy him a drink and talk. He's a interesting man with a heart of gold.

RIP, He's typical Vegas, Hollywood type guy. He had picture perfect hair, teeth, and mustache. Dressed like casino syndicate boss, down to the shine on his shoes. He sweated a lot of my matches and I missed him for a few days. Enough to ask where he's been when I seen him. He's funny and my son loved him. He took interest in my son and I can't say enough about him. If I lived in Vegas and will one day. I will hang with him. He's the coolest. The thing I didn't like about him was he's taller than me. LOL He's the nutz though. Can't wait to see him next yr. " Hey, where'd it go?" LOL I got stupid drinking in front of him and it's all SPetty's fault. LOL My son still talks about him and Spiderman.

Awards

Fran...Most Professional
Carol..Best Friend
Barbara.. What were you laughing about? LOL
SPetty.. Most Heart( Played even with a broken leg. Unable to even get into a proper stance. That's heart..
Cuechick.. Most Determined (to take it all off.)

Hi Vagabond,

Ya know it's funny as I seen the name Vagabond on a sign I thought of you. I even mentioned it to my wife. I heard SPetty say or someone else maybe Spiderman that they met you. Well, there's always next yr.

Hi Cheese,

Wish you could have made it. I was on my way home and went to check in the United ticket both and they over booked the flight. Had us wait till the end and loaded our luggage not to mention my cues on the plane then tell me I couldn't board. I was pissed. What could I say? It wasn't the ticket guy's fault. He gave me 3 free round trip tickets and 3 breakfast meal vouchers for the hassle. He sends us down to the American ticket booth on the other side of the terminal. This guy tells me down stairs it's against the FAA to send baggage unacompanied. I go back upstairs to talk to him and the planes gone. I talked to the guy again and he says our baggage will arrive 4hrs earlier than us and they'll lock it up for us.

We head off back to the American Airlines ticket booth on the other side of the airport. Walk forever and catch the ell train. We wait 45 min to get the tickets then back to the security line 300 people again and then finally get in the boarding section. No time to eat. Been at the airport from 5am now it's 9:30 boarding. They took us to St. Louis for an hr lay over and still no food. The vouchers were only good for the United area, you guessed it. On the other side of the airport.

Finally made it to the Quad Cities at 6pm. They had the luggage locked up and then made my vouchers for dinner. My ride wasn't coming due to intoxication, so we ate and I asked for a cab at the cabs and limo counter. The cabby said where you going? I told him and asked how much the flat rate was? He said $20. I said 20 bucks? He said how much you wanna pay? I said $15. he agreed. 8pm full belly and 3 round trip tickets. Still not sure if it was worth the 3 or 400 grey hairs I lost.LOL

Did I mentioned they did a random search? I along with my family and a nun was searched? No kidding. What is this world coming to? Some things you just don't do. Mess with the cook before you get your food. Don't search a nun before you go 35000 feet off the ground. Even I know that. LOL

Glad to here from you again Cheese,

C.C.~~back to normal.

Hi Chris,

It was great to meet you. You're a bull! Strong guy. LOL And your wife and son are really nice too.

That's too funny about you guys and the nun getting searched. Yeah, I'd say you were all potential terrorists. Know what they did to me at the Vegas airport? They gave me a skin test for traces of explosive materials on my hands. I tell ya, it's crazy out there.

Hey Chris,Heide&Christ,
Oh my God! My Vegas trip was essentially titled "The Chris Cass Crusade!" ha ha ha-Jim thought I was nuts!When we arrived at the hotel,after unpacking, I run to the boards looking for "Chris Cass"-Im going crazy,cant find it-Im saying"he's here,he's here!"Now I'm dying, then along comes Barb-THANK GOD!- she tells me SPetty has everyones schedule-I find SPetty and she tells me your here,but your last name is VOWELS!ha ha ha ha-Okay-I run to that board looking for a Chris with the last name vowels and find it(went to your table) and you know what that board looked like:)-Well, when I seen you and your family coming, you dont know what a feeling I had!Describing you and your family-Handsome,beautiful and best-looking son-WORDUP!:)Watching you play was my highlight-your break-Yep-almost jumped out of my shoes-love that 'CRACK!"You were awesome!I could go on forever,but then I'd have to write a book-I love you guys and miss you dearly-sorry to hear of your airport mishap-as for me-I think it was my brothers "NYPD-ESU" shirt I was wearing and going up to ALL securities saying "Are you guys doing your job, cause Im flying home to NY!" ha ha ha-thank God we're all home safe!
Friends forever,
Carol

Hi Fran,

Glad to see you and Carol arrived home safely. You've got to be kidding, a skin test? I realize the memory of 911 and accept the searches and we all have to do are part to help. I just can't believe it. The lines, I felt like cattle and my son laughed when the airport guy said move up and I made the moo sound.LOL

You Fran odviously didn't flash them baby blues. By the way. Out of all the women I saw playing. You have the strongest break. When I watched your match that day I was hoping you'ld move your break over an inch. I was courious to see what would happen. The 9ball was moving towards the corner almost every time.

I enjoyed your match and the way you conduct yourself. Your one classy babe. If I lived in NY I would have to play at your ph. Your follow-thru and mechanics are awesome.

Best Regards,

C.C.

Hi Carol,

What can I say, I love you to death. Your the nutz. Funny thing in the ph yesterday. I walked in this big guy nic named Big Pun short for punisher was shooting by himself. I asked how he came out the other day playing. He told me the guy wouldn't play him for anything.

Then this old guy comes up from know where and asked me to play some 1 hole. I said sure, I'll be there in a second. Big Pun looks at me and says, How the hell you get action and I don't? I said, because they don't call me Pun. Oh, by the way Pun, did you get that shirt on Clearence? HAHAHAHAHA He gave me the NY wave. LOLLOLLOL

Love ya babe,

Oh yes, I'm a regular Wayne Newton--geeeesshh! Here's the real deal. Momma bought me some new overalls and let me use her Right Guard so I could make a good impression on the CCB folks. Pappy let me use his Vitalis hair grease and GranPa even let me splash on his Aqua Velva! They ran me through the neighbors sprinkler and yes, I even yanked out my nose and ear hair. I even borrowed a pair of shoes from Bubba next door so they'd let me in the casino. I took special care to brush my TOOTH. Chris Cass--you have one helluva' imagination LOL! Seriously, I am privileged to have met you and your family and all of the CCBrs. You must be so proud of "lil" Chris! He's a very sharp young man--must take after his MOM! Bright and very nice looking! Only a game/sport like pool could bring a group of people together that is so diverse. It was a blast and I still crack up when I think about you and the disappearing beer spill at the Riv! My side hurt from laughing so hard. If Spiderman could have taken a picture of the look on your face it would have been priceless! You guys are the best. I haven't had that much fun since the hogs ate my little brother!
SPetty was able to see a guy shooting pool that had an artificial leg with a real foot. Amazing wasn't it SPetty?
Rip~~Feeling privileged but must go braid the hair on Momma's back.

Chris Cass
05-23-2002, 09:42 AM
Oh My RIP, you kill me. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

What you do to my son? He still talks about you Spiderman and Carol as his best friends. HAHAHAHA Where'd it go? After I got the rag. hahahahahaha Oh I've got to know the one about SPetty after she dogged my match taking all of 15 seconds. hahahaha

My Best,

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote: Chris Cass:</font><hr>" Hey, where'd it go?" LOL I got stupid drinking in front of him and it's all SPetty's fault. LOL <hr></blockquote>Hi Chris,

Just thought I'd share the story...

For those who weren’t there (and I’m truly sorry you weren’t), this was a classic CCB moment:

I had the great honor and pleasure of buying Chris his post-last match beer. You know, the consolation beer for getting knocked out of the tournament. (BTW, just in case you missed it, I thought I’d mention again that Chris finished something like 49th out of about 14 million, losing one of his matches to the eventual tournament winner, Bobby Pickle, who beat Chris 5-0 in about 15 minutes, but I digress... /ccboard/images/icons/wink.gif )

Chris, after downing about 6 ounces of the stuff and claiming that he doesn’t drink much, lost physical control of the twitching muscle fibers in his hand and proceeded to let the cool can slide from his fingers and splash to the floor. This, of course, created quite a large puddle of liquid and beer foam on the fancy and elegant Riviera carpet.

Being the civil gentleman that he is (and I could tell by how fast he reacted that he had experience doing this), Chris quite quickly scoops up the can and then looks around in search of something with which to mop up the spill. He very quickly sees just the thing in the next room, darts in and grabs it, and rushes back to the scene of the, ahem, incident.

What Chris didn’t know, of course, was that the Riviera, having learned from past hosting of pool players before, had already installed the magical mexican beer sucking carpet that, without the usual sucking sound, had almost instantly gobbled up the spilled beer and all its foam, leaving virtually no trace that any incident had even occurred.

The look of shock, surprise and utter amazement on Chris’ face as he blurts out "Hey, where’d it go??!?" when he returned to the scene was incredibly priceless. His wife, Heide, darn near peed in her pants and Rip was rolling on the floor with tears streaming down his face. Young son Christ quickly left the scene of the insanely hysterical adults to hide in the bathroom until we could collect ourselves.

Very funny, very priceless. I hope I told it right.

Yep, that artificial leg with a real foot was amazing. You are a riot! I told the story of the amazing disappearing beer spill - feel free to elaborate on that if I missed anything.

Let's do it again in about a year, eh?

Priceless! I've not yet seen CC speechless or embarrased....much too cool for that!

05-23-2002, 02:37 PM
Thanks for the compliments, Chris. I did see that 9-ball moving towards the pocket but I figured since I was making the corner ball, I'd better not mess with it. I thought then what happens if I don't make a ball on the break and start hanging up the 9? I think she got one combination on me as it was.

Funny you should mention my mechanics and follow-through. All I kept thinking was, well Crimi, you can't see a damn thing so at least make it look good by staying down and following through.

When they did that skin test at the ticket counter, the guard took a swab of my skin and then ran it through a machine. Then the machine started beeping like crazy and I thought I was a goner. The guard just kept staring and staring at the machine, and I thought, oh Geez, now what? Then suddenly he turned around and said, "She's clear." I swear I felt relief like I was a guilty person who just got away with something! That's the way these things make you feel. Every trip is a new adventure.

Barbara
05-23-2002, 04:51 PM
Chris! LOL!! Where did that come from?? You think that icon is red, you oughtta see me!!

Okay, so much for exaggeration. But thanks for giving me the rememberance that I should be getting back into my workout routine since I've taken off of it for two weeks. Okay, three now. Next week... Oh yeah... right...

Pete's laughing with your post!! Wet your pants!! Yeah he's a big guy, but he's a real sweetheart and all he has to do is get a little loud to get attention!! Talk about classic Harley biker looks, he just had to buy one!! LOL!! When Danny Barouty was sitting next to me at the pool in his spiffy Speedo suit, Pete was on his way out to see his buddy and stopped by to say bye to me. He had spied us from our room and said to Danny in a louder-than-normal tone, "What the hell are you doing wearing that suit and sitting next to my wife?!!". Just about gave the guys behind us heart attacks, they thought Pete was going to strangle Danny!! LOL!!

I knew all the other CCBers that were out there, except you and Spiderman. Yeah, Spidey's a gadget boy and turned Pete onto this digital camera which Pete will be buying for himself for his BD tomorrow. I do not know of these things. I don't know how to get my voice mail on a cell phone I have that I don't even remember what my number is.

It was such a pleasure to meet you and your family and I hope Heidi doesn't get too frustrated getting back into the game. I also hope she finds some kind of women's organized pool league near you to see that it's not all cut-throat and intimidating.

I hope Heidi got all of your last match on video. If it hadn't been for the alternate breaks, I swear you would've run 5 and out on him.

Barbara~~~what a pleasure it was...!!

Chris Cass
05-23-2002, 09:48 PM
HAHAHA

Hi Barbara,

Pete is too cool. I don't know Danny but I bet he wet the speedo's. hahaha I was very honored to finally meet part of the CCB family and especially have you all meet mine. It was the nutz for me. I also think it's cool that you and Pete are like me and Heide when the son's not around. Seeing you two enjoying each others company is what Heide and I are do for. Just a quiet night alone, far away. Man do I miss that Vegas wheather.

I like you guys tons and I like Pete's fun side. I've alway's wanted an Indian. One of those old ones painted red. Right now I'd settle for a GC with super stretched 860.

My Best to both,

C.C.

Chris Cass was wondering why Barbara would laugh everytime he would break. It was more of a "holy crap what a break" kind of laugh--prompted by amazement. Barbara's repsonse was different than mine. My eyes would bulge, my jaw would hit the floor and I would internalize the "holy crap what a break" laugh of amazement. The sad part is that I'll never be able to break like CCass...for fear of messing up my hair! ssshhhheeeesssh, and LOL!
Rip~~can't wait to introduce CCass to Wayne Newton next year! Yeeeccchhhh and Kaaaapooooeeeeeyyyy!!!!

05-24-2002, 08:25 AM
Ok Everyone,

I appreciate the bucket of balongna and extremely happy I met all of you. As far as Wayne Newton, I still have a $5. off the #1 Neal Diamond impersonator in the world. I can't get that lady saying that out of my head. It's a nightmare. The thing was everywhere I went. I was beginning to think she was following me.

Best Regards,

C.C.

Chris is pretty damn good. If we ever have that CCB tournament, and I get in, I hope I don't draw him early. Most likely it will be too far to drive just to drink beer.

That's funny! One afternoon Rip and I were hanging out and I pointed at this fellow in a shiny glittery dark outfit and commented "He must be an entertainer." Rip replied that he was that Neil Diamond impersonator guy. After that, every time that lady offered me the $5 coupon, I could honestly say "I've seen him." /ccboard/images/icons/laugh.gif

Besides, how could she have been following you when it was obvious that she was following me??!?

Barbara
05-24-2002, 03:28 PM
You know Rip, when I was thinking about meeting up with you I had an image that you were this "grisoled cowboy-type pool player" wearing cowboy boots and a leather tanned face. And when I did finally meet you and see this perfectly coifed hair, acceptable tan and sartorially splendantly shoed person, I was shocked! :0! LOL!! You kept me in stitches during CC's match.

Which, by the way, where's my prize for corrrectly enunciating Chris' real last name???

Barbara~~~takes and Eyetalian to know one...

Barbara
05-24-2002, 03:58 PM
Chris,

My folk's have been married for 54 years now. Pete's parent's have been married for 55 years. WOW!!

My most formative memory about my parents is that whenever my Dad came home from work was that he would kiss my Mom hello. Every day I witnessed this when I was a kid. So did Pete with his folks. Regardless of how my folks' relationship was going, my Dad gave my Mom a kiss every time he came home from work. That was very important to me and gave me a lot of security about the family, even though I'm the 7th of 8 children, and stuff wasn't all that smooth when I was growing up.

I don't mean to butt into your business, but it's important for children to see their parent(s) express positive and loving expressions just so they can have an example.

Chris, don't hold back on loving Heide (my folks would hold hands, snuggle up, and then sometimes my Dad would lay out his hand flat up where my Mom would plant to sit - _woohoo!! :0!),and if you even do a little waltz with her sometine in front of him and he covers his eyes, trust yourself, he'll fondly remember that in the future.

Barbara~~~believes in love... /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif!

Chris Cass
05-25-2002, 12:23 AM
Hi Barbara,

I'm the second of 8 children but my older brother died at birth. I always show affection to Heide and my son at home. We don't show a lot in public but that's because I have an image to protect. LOL

Just kidding, I get your point. Heide says you and Pete would make the perfect parents. I just like the way you guys go off by yourselves and get to enjoy eachothers company alone. Since my son was born it's hard.

Thanks for the post and I'll be all over it. I'm Italian and have a way with the women. LOL

The thing that surprized me most was everytime I was with RIP. All these women were coming over by us? RIP's a babe magnet. Him and Voodoo could take Vegas by storm, IMO.

Regards,

C.C.~~too much mush for me, lets talk pool.LOL

Chris Cass
05-25-2002, 12:38 AM
Thanks Tom,

But I think that title still belongs to Scott Lee and the real stars here on the board. The people who instruct us to be players. Those who stand in the backround. Those people who devote there lives into turning out pool players that respect the game and accept it for what it really is, an art form. One day the public will realize that.

Yes, I finished respectable but I wouldn't be satisfied with second place to be honest. I believe as long as I can hold a cue I'll never stop trying to be the best. I know this is impossible at my age but that only makes the fight more of a challenge. Thanks for the kind words but, I'm only a pool player.

Regards,

C.C.~~Tom's friend

05-25-2002, 05:57 AM
ChrisC, yeah, you know how the women go for the "grisoled cowboy-type pool player wearing cowboy boots and a leather tanned face". WINK WINK &amp; LOL while ribbing Barbara! And I'm still confused by her comment "sartorially splendantly shoed person". What the hell is that all about??? They made me wear shoes or else they said I couldn't come into the casino...really!! As for the hair--it's actually a large Chia Pet held on with velcro that I've worn ever since my run in with that pesky electrified razor wire fence. Voodoo would definitely take Vegas by storm but I'd just be a ripple in the pond. Babe magnet?? Actually, I kept getting my hand stuck in their bra straps as they would walk by and they'd just sort of bounce back my way like a bungee kind of deal, BOING BOING BOING, the sound of ladies rebounding in my direction against their will as I stand embarrassed with my hand caugh where it shouldn't be! Rip~~proving that perception is not always the reality!

Just kidding, I get your point. Heide says you and Pete would make the perfect parents. I just like the way you guys go off by yourselves and get to enjoy eachothers company alone. Since my son was born it's hard.

Thanks for the post and I'll be all over it. I'm Italian and have a way with the women. LOL

The thing that surprized me most was everytime I was with RIP. All these women were coming over by us? RIP's a babe magnet. Him and Voodoo could take Vegas by storm, IMO.

Regards,

C.C.~~too much mush for me, lets talk pool.LOL <hr></blockquote>
