MSN homepage had a top ten list of "The most feared athletes in sports". Our sport gets some recognition at #5 in the form of a Black widow. Here is what the article had to say:

"5. Jeanette Lee aka "The Black Widow"
Sport: Pool

Career Highlights: One of the world's top-ranked pool players, Jeanette Lee received the WPBA Sportsperson of the Year Award in 1998 and was nominated for the award in '95 and '97. She's won a gold medal for the USA at the 2001 Akita World Games in Japan, the '03 Ladies Tournament of Champions and the '04 Ladies Trick Shot Championship.

So, why are her opponents so scared of her? When you think of your average pool player, an overweight guy in overalls singing George Thorogood tunes at the local bar probably comes to mind. Jeanette Lee offers a somewhat different vision. Nevertheless, she's just as horrifying a sight for her competitors. "The Black Widow" is all business and widely considered the most famous pool player in the world. It's not just because of her stunning looks, though. As her website explains, "Jeanette's nickname is 'The Black Widow' because of her known ability to devour opponents, along with her custom of wearing only black during tournaments." Devour opponents? Yikes. "

a pretty cool list- including many sports from cricket to video games. For the full article see here (http://msn.foxsports.com/other/story/5013876?GT1=7127)

was nice to see a pool player mentioned!
