Kim Davenport is GOD!  What a spectaculor shot off the rail!  It's shots
like those that make me appreciate the game.  And the crucial jump shot
that he sunk.  Holy Cow!  Buddy Hall was just shocked in awe.

I'm not worthy... I'm not worthy... I suppose this should move Davenport up
in the rankings from his meager 11th.

I was there.  I was in the front row about 5 feet from where they were
sitting.  You could see the color just drain from Buddy's face.  The whole
tournament was fantastic.

I know what you mean.  That was childish, and very unsportsmanlike.  He took a
good performance on the table and totally demeaned it by that idiotic chant.
As has been said many times, you can also be a 'bad winner'.  What Strickland
did was very inexcusable, and when he *lost* to the *real* world champion [1],
Takeshi Okamura in the semi-finals of the Peace World All Star Tournement made
me a little happier.  Probably because the spectators at *that* event didn't
have to hear his idiotic chants.  I mean c'mon this is POOL, *not* professional
wrestling.  I liked Earl Strickland before this, now I have no respect for him
whatsoever.  He is one of the reasons that so many people from abroad don't
like Americans.

[1] (The PBT players did not participate in the world title tournement, won by
Okamura, so they had their own championship, which Strickland won).

Ummm...Ya...that would've irked me too!...Earl Strickland's never come across to me in that
fashion...I'm sure he was just being a proud American...Efren can play a little too!...:-)
