Twisted Tuesdays...

Really Tuesday teams, I mean REALLY? Lol.
Some Tuesday teams have really caught my attention this Session, but I'm not so sure it's in all in good way.
"BIG-TEST-ISCLES" played "B-Low-Us" already this session. Teams are sporting members such as "Bad Touch Uncle" S. along with "Strokin" H. and "Jiggles" F. And what the heck IS A "Moose Knuckle"?
Tuesdays are turning out to be quite the twisted night...

Thoughts & Prayers...

While I try to keep my blog postings light and humorous, it is with a heavy heart I pass the following news on.
I just received word that one of 8 Ball Express' active members, Stephanie Lee, passed away. She was a member of Beth Royer's Wednesday night "Friends & Family" team out of JP's. She has played with the Wednesday night division for some time now and will be missed I am sure. She will remain on the team's roster for the rest of the session, having just played last week. If you play on Wednesdays, please be aware.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her friends and family.

5/20/09 Update: This was sent from Beth Royer, Stephanie's Team Captain and Friend -
"Stephanie Lynn Lee was born on December 6th, 1974 in Hamilton County, Tennesse to parents Stanley Lee and Sheila Hoots. Though she suffered from medical problems her whole life Stephanie never let them hamper her spirit or her determination to live her life. She was an avid pool player, playing 8 Ball Express on Wednesday nights as well as playing tournaments around town. She was also a huge Atlanta Braves fan. Stephanie worked for Wachovia Bank as a Customer Service Representative. Stephanie left us on May 14th, 2009, after only 34 short years. We, her friends who are left, will miss her spirit, her smile; which would light up the room; and the lovely sound of her infectious laughter. We love you Steph.Saying Good-bye to Our FriendOur dear friend, Stephanie Lee passed away Thursday May 14th. She was a beautiful, vibrant, tenacious, loving, smart and funny young woman who was full of life. She was a very tough opponent and anyone who ever played against her can attest to that. Despite a history of medical problems, Stephanie was never one to give in to self pity and would not accept pity from others. Those of us who were fortunate enough to have her as a friend are better for it. She played on Wednesday night with the "Friends & Family" pool team. We as a team are heartbroken by the loss of Stephanie, we loved her very much and will miss her terribly.Beth Royer, Team Captain, Billy Hilton, Hiram Rutledge, Mindy Vanasse, Rob McGhee, Scott Bethune, Doug Griffin "

Yet Another Overheard Gem

This was sent via text message to me from a player that overhead the following during a match:
"Don't think she's pregnant, it's too jiggly." Wow...let's stick to the game on the table shall we? ;)
