Mosconi Cup

Any body else think that nine ball pool is a sport you could *actually* be a professional at?

Another sport that builds on the USA, Europe rivalry.

What do you class as sport CJ? Physical exertion or competition?

Perhaps this is a different thread, but I think the Mosconi Cup is sport.

And it's a great sport to watch with beer. I'm flicking between this and the snooker final.

Yup, I'm living the dream.

All I know, wrestling isn't a sport.

Perhaps to qualify it needs to appear on the bbc sport website

It's important to feel the breeze between your finger tips when judging that perfect weighted throw.

I don't want to be a professional nine ball pool player now. My future is in bowls.

I know, too many variables in crown green.

I need to build up to it; no jumping in at the flat deep end.

You know me well.

I went to the Weber Cup not so long back; they've inspired me to practice on the Wii and take those railings down. Y'know, eventually.

I don't wanna get carried away, but I see my future developing like:

Flat > Crown Green > Ten-Pin (rails) > Ten-Pin > Nine Ball > Darts

The world is my oyster.

Speed Dominos is just a pipe dream.

Do you think I can just take the leap from darts to ESD?!

You're crazy man. Crazy.

Watched this for two minutes last night. So weird. I didn't know anyone actually watched pool. Who are all those people who turn up to watch live pool?

I see Earl Strickland is still around

They've had to turn his mic off.

'Get in the hole!'

'U. S. A!'

I don't think I've watched the Mosconi Cup since the late great Sid Waddell was commentating on the not so great Earl the Pearl Strickland.

Some friends went to watch it.

I used to be good, but developed a blind spot in the centre of my vision in one eye and it's fucked my snooker/pool ability entirely. Couldn't pick an angle if my life depended on it.
