View Full Version : Confirm Rumor?
05-24-2002, 08:01 AM
Last night I heard a rather sad, what I hope to be untrue, rumor. It seems the Game may have lost another Senior Statesman. I heard that Joe Russo, out of Trenton, NJ, passed away. Joe was an active pro in the 60's and owned a pool room in Trenton, for a time. He was also the inventor of the Russo Interlocking Bridge Head. Please say it ain't so, but has anybody else heard this rumor, and can you confirm or deny it?

I just checked the obits in the Philadelphia Inquirer and didn't see any mention. Check tomorrow.
On another somber note, Sam Snead passed away.

www.nj.com (http://www.nj.com) has obit listings from 5-6 area newspapers. I haven't seen/heard anything.

Mr. Russo is alive and well. I just spoke to him on the telephone and he told me to tell whoever started this rumor:
"They are full of $hit."
He further informed me he is on his way to hit a few balls.

Good to hear that, just as with Mark Twain, "The rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated!" Thanks for the good news.
