Reminder.
A while back someone gave a link that showed when pool is on tv. I printed it. Tomorrow, Sun., June 30, pool was listed from 1-2 pm eastern time. That is the last date that printed. I don't have anything else like what kind of pool or tournament it is.

I was the one that gave the link to the ESPN 2 television listings. If anyone wants it, here it is: http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/tvlistings/schedule?date=20020629&network=2

Thanks. I signed up on the tv notification link.

This isn't the link I was talking about. Someone posted a link that shows the upcoming "pool only" for about a month in advance. I printed it for June. It showed 14 tv pool events scheduled from about June 2nd to June 30th. Despite printing this list and keeping it by my computer, I was only able to watch 2 events. Actually 1 1/2.

Our big 55" tv went out. Then our 27" bedroom tv went out. And now the vcr's aren't hooked up properly. So the 3 or 4 times I tried to record them I messed up.

I'm listing the last few events from that printed list. Maybe someone will recognize it and give that link again.

June 23, 1-2 pm
2002 WPBA Valley Forge Classic
ESPN

June 24, 9-10 pm
2002 WPBA Alpine CA Classic
ESPN2

June 24, 10-11 pm
2001 Trick Shot Magic
ESPN2

June 30, 1-2 pm
And this was the bottom of my paper and the rest of this event didn't print for me.

Thanks.

<hr></blockquote>Hi Alfie,

How can I get that page for myself? That is, what steps do you go through to get just the pool listings from the ESPN web site?

Thanks!

Someone might have been me. Here's the (blasphemous) link I previously posted:

http://www.poolmag.com/cgi-bin/poolmag/showtv

Billiards Digest also has their own TV show link:

http://www.billiardsdigest.com/calendar/calendar_tv.php

Neither of these has been updated past June. Someone also pointed out that the BCA web site is showing showtimes in July and August for the BCA 9-ball tournament:

http://www.bca-pool.com/start.shtml

Hope that helps. Thanks for the pool alerts.

Spetty and Eddie, try this link for ESPN. It should show the billiards schedule for the week. You can also click on the calendar to go into the future.

ESPN still makes changes at the last minute and does not update or always follow this calendar, but this is the most accurate schedule I have found.

Thanks SPetty.
It was the Pool &amp; Billiard one I was looking for.

Now all I have to do is get my vcrs hooked up correctly again. Thanks everyone.

Last warning. It's scheduled to be on ESPN from 12:00-1:00 pm central. That's about 5 minutes from now.

scroll down, click on "ESPN TV Listings" on the sidebar
scroll down page to "ESPN Network Listings"
go across to the "SPORT" drop down box marked "Weekly"
scroll down the list, click on "Billiards"
voila

Is this what you wanted?

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote: Alfie:</font><hr> Is this what you wanted? <hr></blockquote>Hi Alfie,

Yes, that's what I was asking for. However, your "voila" part didn't work for me. It's like it wants me to press the "search" button, but I can't find it! Nothing happens when I select billiards.

Anyway, again, thanks. This is what I was asking for.

By the way, WPBA pool is on tonight at 9 p.m. eastern on ESPN2.

I'm no computer wiz but it seems to me that if it works for me it should work for you. Maybe a network anomaly was happening ... or your mouse is clicking ineffectively intermittently.

Anybody? Any other technical stuff it could be?

It works Alfie. I went to espn2, then billiards. As Spetty mentioned it seems like it wants you to press a go button, but it is not there. I just waited a few seconds and it popped up. Could be if the connection is slow it takes longer than usual.

7:00 pm on espn2 tonight 7/1/02

Thanks again!
