A Disaster of Epic Proportions

Just when I thought it was safe to go back to the pool hall.  Arrggghhh!  To say that my shooting today was horrific would be putting it mildly.   It seems that my performance has found a new low, a Mariana Trench of stench, if you will.  Yes, today, I unleashed a veritable cornucopia of miscues, jaw rattles, shaky bridges, and pokey strokes.  WHAT THE HELL?  It was a debacle that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemies.  And the most agonizing part?  I caught almost all of it on film!  Yes, that’s right…all on digital media that theoretically could appear on the web, if I were an idiot, which is debatable.  No, fear not, you will not be subjected to today’s travesty.  Maybe later tonight, when the anger and frustration has abated and a couple glasses of wine have softened the temperament, I’ll conjure up the nerve to actually watch the video to figure out what I was doing wrong.

  1. Keep in mind Michael, failure is really information.

    • You are correct. I learned several things from this experience. Most importantly, I learned that I need to swtich back to my old cue. Over the years I developed a really good feel for the performance characteristics of my cue’s shaft, and the slight change in stiffness of the new shaft had undesirable affects on my aiming and cueball control. Now I’m back to my normal shooting performance.
