    Any billiards players on here?

    Me and my bf have been playing for the APA for the last 4 years. Other than Kujo, this is my favorite hobby.

    Used to be my favorite pass time, the wife and I played APA also.. to much drama in the leagues around here, took the fun out of it.

    Haven't played in some time, the smoky bar's give me killer head aches.

    Drama will suck the life out of any situation, sory to hear that it killed APA for you. I guess we're lucky that there's fairly little drama to deal with, and most of it is ignorable.

    I started in 2009, when it was still legal to smoke in bars, I was so happy when 2010 hit and they passed the law here in OR, no more smoking in bars!! And yes...I am a smoker...but smoking indoors is just plain gross.

    We actually took a year off when we brought Kujo home, I didn't want to leave him alone for 5 hours when he was a puppy. Now that he's a big boy we decided to get back into it. I've been loving every minute of it!

    It's a bar, I expect folks to be able to smoke there.. I just can't handle it very well.

    That said I played all my life, it's a great game.. won a lot and lost a lot doing it. You pulling for the Ducks tonight? Should be a good game..

    My parents were in a hobby league when I was growing up - when they built their new house (when I was 7), they included a game room just for the pool table (and a bar... and a "murphy-bed" style table that housed the HO Railroad train set).

    I sorta learned how to play, and used to be OK at it. I still enjoy playing, but I'm not as good as I used to be.

    Uh oh... Ducks???
    Are you bringing "drama" into this thread??

    My Huskies lost to both Oregon and Stanford... so I'll be rooting for the DEFENSE.

    My husband used to play in the APA but like others said it got to full of drama, he plays in a different league now. I go out and play for fun when he needs to do some practices. I suck, but hey as long as I can get the cue ball to make contact with the intended ball I'm happy.

    I was shown some hustle shots in Arizona way back when, scams basically...but now I play straight-up and only 8 and 9 ball to take people's money, not kidding. :cool:

    Nah, I have no dog in the fight in tonight's game, just saw the location of the OP.

    Back on the subject we could all do a online game or league even.

    I'm no die hard fan or anything, but I'm always rooting for the Ducks. I even went to the BCS game a couple years ago when we played Auburn, it was a blast!

    I guess there's drama in every sport, including APA, I just don't let it bother me and play for fun.

    You should have waved, my wife and I were at that game it was a lot of fun.

    The Ducks are crazy fast pace, love to watch their offense.

    So...my team did so well over the spring session that we took first place in 8 and 9 ball!

    We just finished up 9ball Tri-Cups and took 3rd place!!

    In 2 weeks we have 8ball Tri-Cups then a week after that is 9ball regionals. We have a 1/4 chance of going to Nationals!

    I'm so bloody excited and proud of my team, I just had to share :)
