Earl Stickland

Earl gets a lot of flack for some of his actions, but when he and I were shooting here at the Fun House (along with Johnny Archer), he was a real gentleman.  This video tribute to Earl's career is excellent.

Gotta love the Pearl! I was fortunate enough to attend a pool school given by him and Johnny archer and had the greatest time. Earl Strickland was the nicest guy and he was clearly excited to show some of us ball-bangers a few things. One of my fondest pool-related memories.

"Next time" you won't have o take it easy on me because I'll be so out of practice you can shoot wrong-handed...

Thanks for posting, and for being a long-time reader of this blog. Glad you enjoyed the video and the blog.

My neck pain is greatly improved, so I just might get back to the table again...
