"I think you gonna find... when all this shit is over and done -- I think
you're gonna find yourself one smilin' mother***er. The thing is, Butch,
right now... you got ability. But painful as it may be, ability... don't
last. And your days are just about over. Now, that's a hard mother***in'
fact of life. But that's a fact of life your ass is gonna have to get
realistic about. You see, this business is filled to the brim with
unrealistic mother***ers. Mother***ers who thought their ass would age
like wine. If you mean it turns to vinegar... it does. If you mean it gets
better with age... it don't. Besides, Butch, how many fights you think you
got in you anyway?
Hmm? Two? Boxers don't have an old-timers' day. You came close, but you
never made it. And if you were gonna make it, you would have made it before
The above said might be all true for such sports as boxing. However, it
seems to be the very opposite in pool. Many people do get better with age in
pool! But my question is as follows:
I was wondering if you know any good players (A level and above) who started
to play pool very late in their twenties or even later than that? I hear all
about the top pro pool players, and they all started to play when they were
little kids. I am interested in becoming real good, even though I started
very late (25 y.o.). I'm not sure if it has been done by anyone else before.
I hope I didn't offend anyone with the introduction (Pulp Fiction).
