GREAT Reminder (photo)

Saw this on a door of a pool room, as you walked out!

One of my league mates said, "That should be a on the door at home as a good reminder before I leave the house, too."  LOL

Hill--Hill Win (diagrams)

Found myself on the hill-hill game for the second time in two weekends for my ladies league.

This particular match was more crucial as it was to see who would move to the finals or not.

Here is what happened in diagrams, I was strips.  Click any photo to enlarge.

I played safe and she did the correct thing and made my 9ball.  

I then had ball-in-hand and I tried to break out the 2/8, but failed to spread them apart like I wanted to do even with ball-in-hand on the 15 ball.

 I then decided to use the 12 ball to get shape for a short rail bank on the 8 ball.  

 I failed to get that shape and then had no choice but to bank the 8 in the cross corner.  I made it!

I was really trying a two-way shot - leave the cueball nestled up against her 2 ball in case I missed (it wasn't one of my favorite bank shots that I felt comfy with).  I did not accomplish that, so I got lucky I made the 8-ball for my team hill-hill.

We then found ourselves in the finals!  We lost that match because we were all so tired, but super proud we placed second again!  Second year in a row!

Scared of Me?

During my ladies league playoffs last weekend, the toughest player told me she was scared of me.  That's pretty funny because I used to be scared to play her!

She is a good friend of mine now, but I was always intimated by her.  Well, everyone is intimidated by her, lol.  She plays jam up and has the attitude to back it.

She's a beast on the table.  And off the table if you don't know her, she's intimidating as well.  Once you get to know her and become a close friend, she is one of those friends-for-life type of people who would drop everything to help you out.  And she genuinely cares for her friends - no fasleness going on at all.

So, to hear she was scared to play me, was her way of complimenting me, after she beat me Sunday.  She said, "And I ain't scared of nobody!"  lol

She's sweet :)
