Phoenix Again

I flew into Phoenix tonight on a three day business trip, so I get to play corporate guy during the day and pool hustler (or maybe more accurately pool chump) at night. My plan is to hit Bullshooters tonight for a couple hours, then hit Kolby’s Corner Pocket Monday night. Maybe I can get my stroke back on this trip. We’ll see.


Pool: A New Beginning

NYEWow! I haven’t posted in my blog since October 2012! Have I taken a sabbatical from the sport, lost the desire to complete, or put away my cues for good? On the contrary! I’ve been so busy in the last few months that I haven’t had time to shoot pool at all, much less write about it. What have I been up to over the last several months, you ask? Well, let me tell you…

After many years of contemplating the sport and trying to make decisions about what my future might look like, I’ve finally taken some concrete steps to make my pool dreams a reality. At the stroke of midnight this New Year’s Eve, I launched a new pool organization called California Cue Sports, Inc. The purpose of California Cue Sports is to promote the game (all cue sports) by establishing leagues that are built for the players and are responsive to player input, and also work with other businesses to help promote the game and build a solid foundation that will allow aspiring players to develop and flourish. For more information about the league, you can visit here:

This February we will launch our first league; a handicapped One Pocket league that will be the first One Pocket league in California and possibly the first in the nation. The league is already generating a lot of buzz because we will be sending three players on an all-expense paid trip to compete in the 14th Annual US Open One Pocket Championship this July in Las Vegas!

In addition to the One Pocket league, we will also be launching a handicapped Scotch Doubles 9 Ball league in February. The Scotch Doubles league should also be a lot of fun for all players involved. So 2013 promises to be a very very busy year for me. Hopefully I’ll be able to carve out a few minutes here and there to hit some balls and I certainly will make an effort to post here on a more regular basis. So here’s to a great 2013, and may all your New Year’s wishes come true! Cheers!
