Even though you can't run a rack:

1) You're interested in obscure facts about pro players.

2) You're convinced the only thing keeping you from playing better is a Predator shaft.

3) You're always up on the latest cutting-edge technology of tips.

4) You're certain every week you've discovered the secret to pool.

5) You practice on tight pocket tables and don't come within a diamond of making anything.

6) You wonder, for no reason whatsoever, what the right game is between Jeremy Jones and Corey Deuel?

7) You rush into pool rooms with the latest info on tournaments.

8) Your last name rhymes with Watson.

9) You can name every material used in every stick you see.

10) You tell everybody you gave up gambling because it's a rotten habit, when the truth is that you used to dog away the rent money and just can't afford to do that anymore.

11) You stay close to anybody resembling a pro player, telling anybody else who asks, "Oh, we're friends."

12) You buy a new stick every other week and never sell the previous one.

13) You have pictures at home of you and pro players, arm wrapped around shoulder, you with a goofy smile, them looking like they can't wait to get away.

14) You know who won the 1992 Bicycle Club Casino event.

15) You watch Accu-Stat videos every Saturday night, right after splitting the power play with a friend.

That's a full rack. More to come.

Dear friend...

Excellent work. Excellent work indeed. Steve and I may need an assistant for our Thursday G.A meetings. Identify yourself to me in a private message and we can talk about payment, etc

Mr. Lipsky, a man of great intellect but poor self control when it comes to MegaTouch, and I have crossed paths many times and discussed ad nauseum the growing epidemic of Googanism. It's pretty scary indeed. Once got trapped talking with a Stage 4 Googan at a party and nearly went insane. Needed months of therapy to think straight again. I mean, this guy knew all the new high runs all over the country. Anyway, for the time being, I must remain undercover. Too many Googans hunting me down, trying to convince me of the many advantages of Rock Canadian Maple shafts over Bird's Eye ones.

(whispering) I think even this board is infested with Googans. My god, where will it end?
