Okay, so the Thanksgiving holiday has passed, you are sufficiently burned out on ham and turkey leftovers and the cranberry sauce has hardened to the consistency of a phenolic tip.
Tonight is the first night back to league competition for a lot of us. Did you play and/or practice over the long weekend?
Better yet, did you spend the holiday at a friend's or relative's home who just happened to have a pool table? And, if 'yes', did you take the 'Family Pool Shark' to task? What was the bet...the drumsticks? A pumpkin pie?
Back to league: Are you ready for this evening or do you feel a little apprehensive because you focused more on hitting your gullet with that last piece of pecan pie rather than hitting that backwards cut shot you seem to struggle with?
Me? I'm ready. With any luck at all, I will have dropped from a '6' to a '4' in only two weeks. Yes, my focus has been on that pecan pie.
