View Full Version : what's your cue's name ?



05-13-2003, 12:04 PM
lol, i was here shooting with a friend and i put my cue down on the table and told and came back, and found my friend shooting with denise(formally ebony) and i got a lil upset, because denise is my woman, so i told him that denise is a 1 woman cue, and does'nt like to be touched by others. of course he thinks am nuts for naming my cue.

but who else has a name for their cue.

05-13-2003, 12:08 PM
I think that would all depend on how it played that nite!

(or rather i played =)

When a player plays good the credit always goes back to the player but when he playes not so good its always the cue's fault... poor cue

A dude on my bar league team has a couple of cheap 2-pc. cues but he found a bar stick he likes better. He put a cigar burn in it to identify it, hides it behind the bar, named it "Lucky". Carries it to league matches and tournaments.

The last thing I named was a stuffed cow I won at the Ohio State Fair shooting that 3-ball pool carnival game.

I call mine by different names, but usually sweet-heart, or bitch. Depending on the attitude needed for the shot /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Yeah mine tends to be POS (Piece of $#!+) when I miss, and Baby when I make it. Like "Nice shot Baby" or "YOU POS!!!"

Mine's name is Schon. It's conveniently printed on the buttcap. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

LOL, what a coincidence so is mine! Except my Schn is pronounced with the little squiggles, I think /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Rod, are you talking about the umlaut? (The two dots over the "o").

So you prounounce it "shone", and not "shahn", right?


==========================

Rod

umlaut, is that what you call it. LOL Yes it is shone and I think the dots change the pronunciation. Like I say I think.

~~~ rod, not very good at english, um well unless it's on a c/b. LOL

Matter of fact I emailed Schon themselves to get the low down on the pronunciation. I'd heard people say "shown" or "shawn". And they said "technically it's not either, but around here we pronounce it 'shawn'."

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote cycopath:</font><hr> . . ."technically it's not either. . . ."<hr /></blockquote>Are they German or Austrian there?--I would bet that a native speaker of a Teutonic language would be picky about it.

This reminds me of a time when I called the shock absorber maker, Billstein. Pretty much every car enthusiast or mechanic I know pronounces the name "bill-steen", but they answered the phone at the office with "bill-stine".

I believe it is German and it's technically pronounced Showin. That's as close as I can get.

I sold those shocks in the automotive business. The factory rep was german so he (for lack of better words) made bill sound like beel and stine like sshtine. so it was beel-sshtine.

Different pronunciations for east and west germany as well.
After two years in high school, and two in college I believe it is like an "ae" sound, comes out kind of like a "er" type sound when you stick your lips out. "Schaern"
Schon without umlauts can mean "already", with pretty or beautiful.

This is why we all need to invest in a webcam and a headset so we could get rid of this and settle it once and for all.

Well I have not formally named my cue. However, if I were so inclined it would probabally be "Billie Baroo" from the movie caddyshack.

Oh Billie, Billie, Billie, Billie, Billie.

Maybe you spend more time with playing pool then with learning german ;-)
Schn would be more similar to Schoen, ae would be used for .
Its a umlaut and Schn means beautiful.

Umlaute can be a real hassle when filling in forms, especially in the web.

You can also access the Windows character map.

START&gt;&gt;&gt;Accessories&gt;&gt;&gt;System Tools&gt;&gt;&gt;Character Map

(That's for W2K. Otherwise, search for "charmap.exe".

The utility is self-explanatory, and for each character, you can find the keyboard code in the bottom-right corner.

Have fun.

LOL. I know what you mean.

I've never named my cue but it has been called a lot of nasty names..by my opponents (as have I /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif).

I call mine "@@#!!-%$#@@#!" most of the time. Other times I refer to her as "%%$#$%!!" or "!!@@#@!".

These are my pet names for her when she isn't making shots.

Mickey,

You are right about the meaning. The umlaut stands for "oe" and the sound is a little like "Shurn" but a little softer. As I use this cue and lived for 7 years in Frankfurt, I had many occasions to say and hear the name. I always pronounced it Shon, but after I moved back to the States, I found myself giving it the German prounuciation!

Viel Glueck!
