In the Feb. BD issue, Tips and Shafts, George talks about a home video with Willie Mosconi in it. Anybody know about when it is from?

I don't, but I recently came on some great games with him on ESPN Classic. He was in his mid-60s at least, and could still play some beautiful pool, though I'm sure nothing like his best. Other greats in those shows include Irving Crane and Babe Cranfield, names I've heard since I was a kid. I would love to see something with Mosconi closer to his prime.

The player who gave it to me is from my 14.1 league. I'll see him next Mon. and will try and get your answer then. Thanks for your interest. GF

I too read that article and would like to see it, GF any chance on up loading some excerps of that home video on the net? maybe use Utube or google video to host it for free?

Naz knowing Willie, I think he would want his family to receive the residuals.####

I was able to verify today that the video was made in '92, the last year before Mr. Mosconi died. GF

That's an interesting idea; unfortunately, the quality of the video is very poor and would be barely discernible in third-generation. Add to that the fact that I'm a technological neanderthal who wouldn't have the first clue how to implement your good suggestion, and I'm afraid the odds just rise and rise. GF

Thanks for the info, George. I have also seen that video, but could find no clue as to its age.
