i found and bought a beautifully understated brunswick conversion cue by jerry rauenzahn. i think he retired in the last year or two. it's stupid and in my defense i don't feel like this about literally anything i else i own, but i love it. it's one of a kind, it's beautiful and it hits well.

I feel like I am very good at billiards unless I am playing someone else. Especially if I respect that person. I get nervous and flub my shots.

I've got mad respect for Alabama cue ball slammers. I'd be toast before I even set up for the break.

A friend of mine was really into it, so I learned to play well enough not to embarrass myself, but that's about it.
