I feel sorry for the guy but the saddest part of the story is that he did it too himself.

It would have been a much better story if his opponent skewered him after a loss.

Ultimate, full contact, pool coming to a poolroom near you. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif

I actually felt more sorry for the cue.

One should hold one's cue stick to the side of one's body, so if one falls forward, one's eye will not become impaled on the stick.

Similar rules pertain to the carrying of a knife, or a drawn handgun or rifle in the field.
