You're still on for the beer and burger, but unless you want to hop
the Big Pond to the Netherlands the match will have to wait a while.
About the 6-on-the-break thing -- I've got a break like somebody's
Granny, and I didn't hit 'em that hard. They just all went toward
holes. I was as surprised as Mario!
BTW, if you really want that beer and burger, there are some good
off-season rates on New Orleans-to-Brussels flights (or into
Amsterdam.) Practice up on your one-pocket, and when you think you're
ready ... come on over! You can rassle with Mario at 9-ball up in
Leiden and then come down South and play me some one hole... Time it
right, win the Center Pocket fall tournament, and you could pay for
Or I'll see you next time I'm down your way. ;<)
