In last nights tournament I played 3 sets very well, then in the 4th I
played just plain stupid, and this was the match that would take me to the
money.  The only good part is that I was on table 9, and Leisure Time has a
camera  set up to tape matches on it.  In all the years I've been playing I
never asked to have any matches taped but last night I did.  Very
interesting, I watched only a few minutes when I got home last night (2am)
and saw right away that I wasn't getting down on my shots. The match went
Hill-hill and I dogged a long, bottom right to top left corner 6 ball after
a bad safe by my opponent and like they say, "that's all she wrote."
Watching the tape is very interesting and I'm sorry I never did it before.

I'm going to put the tape on DVD tonight and will put copies of it for sale
on Ebay in case anyone wants to learn how "not to play."  I'll also raffle
off a couple here.  LMAO  

It took me a while to realize that the old fat guy was actually me.

My Dad was legally  blind for about 10 years and then had a cataract
operation. He took one look in the mirror and cursed out the doctor for
aging him. he said last time he looked in the mirror he was young so it
must have been the operation.

My great-aunt Rose was a well known painter here in Canada. Her
paintings were wonderfully fluid and used a palette knife a lot...
creating lots of texture and interesting effects. Then she had cataract
surgery - at the age of 90. As a result, she could literally see too
well and it inhibited her painting, eventually stopping her from
painting altogether. Since she couldn't paint any longer, she said had
no reason to keep on living and died soon after. So, in effect, the
cataract surgery killed her.

I asked a local doctor if he was any good at removing cataracts. He
said, yes... so I sent him to Niagara Falls. He lied... AFAIK, it's
still there.
