Pool Has Returned to My Life


FastMikie's Fun House remodel project has turned the corner!

The pool table (Brunswick Gold Crown IV) has been re-assembled and re-clothed (Simonis 760 Tournament Blue) with the excellent assistance of Steve Leistikow. Thanks, Steve, it plays flawlessly!  

To celebrate, I spent a few hours just hitting one table full after another, getting back in stroke, and enjoying it a lot.  Next up was a "Shoeless Pool Tournament" with a couple of friends.  The "shoeless" stipulation is to protect the new, spectacular wood floors as well as to help give it a shine while walking around the table (socks required).

I sure am enjoying the new space, and the table, a Ton.  And I'm looking forward to having a lot more friends over in the coming weeks and months to shoot some pool, talk business, and plan Global Domination, as usual...

While I'd love to fantasize about playing pool at the level of being worthy of an invitation to the "Shoeless Pool Tournament", I'll have to settle for offering to sponsor someone dear to my heart. She could be enticed out of retirement and would bring her own socks. Cotton, wool, synthetic or a blend?

Thick, old cotton socks are best.
Thick because then maybe the splinters won't get through to your (her) tender feet. Cotton because it's summer. Wool in winter.

If it's who I think it is, she must bring cookies!

Famous? Me?
Not really.
I'm just a guy with a pool table and a computer.

Meet me?
I guess I'm kinda easy in that regard, even though I consider myself a hermit. It would be easier if you had a pool-related problem I could help you with because I'm not really into "just chatting". (hermit, remember?)

Maybe I'm just socially awkward, but I prefer to focus on helping others...

It seems you are a very passionate about the pool table.

Yes pool is a life giving game as we get indulged in it while playing. I want Shuffleboard Tables for my home as my father loves playing pool on it.
