Here's what happened in Week #9 - Jan. 3rd, 2013:

Duffy's hosted the Tackle Box Spinners last week - and it was a close one. Teams were tied at 6-6 at the break, thanks to Duffy's Woot and Tackle Box's Rich Jr. each getting 3-0 wins. Shawn and Kevin got the beer frame for the Duffers, beating Trevor and Bob 2-0. In the bottom half it was back and forth until Jonny got the 10th and 11th point in the final frame giving his club the 11-10 win on the road.

The Stickmen were on the road at the Oasis taking on the Bankers on the back table. This match was also tied at 6-6 as the teams traded 2-1 wins. Scott and Cele couldn't get the beer frame from Mark Edwards and Bill, as they won 2-1. Keith and Madsack each got 2 wins each and Scott went 3-0 to bring the final score to 13-8 Stickmen.

On the main table at the Oasis, the Dragons were taking on the Oasis Bulldogs in an intra-bar matchup. It was 5-4 Dragons after the third match, but newcomer to the Bulldogs (jumping from the Dragons to the 'Dogs), making his 2012-13 debut, Brenon got all 3 of his to make it 7-5 Bulldogs at the break. Aaron and Jeff Brun got the beer frame 2-0 against Ed and Brian. Frank made a rare appearance and got 3 wins to help propel his team to a 13-8 Bulldog win.

Out at the Last Call, the Rack Pack were up against the Oasis O-Team. James V. got all 3 of his in the 3rd spot to bring the O-Team to an 8-4 lead at the break. Captain Mike and Brian V. got the beer frame from Rob and Kevin Nickas, 2-1. Slade wrapped up the night with a 3-0 hat trick to make the final score 14-7 O-Team.

The Damned loungers were the only Down Lo team at home last week, except for the Playa's who were around on their bye week. They welcomed in the Durham Empire Club. The final score was 12-9 Damned Loungers, thanks to David Larabee and Yang's 3-0 wins. The Chinese connection got the beer frame again, beating Bob Cody and Rick Beller.

Still waiting for the scoresheet from the Eagles and their match against the Diamondbacks of Down Lo. I'll edit this post as soon as a sheet is submitted.

Good luck next week - the Dragons get the week off for their bye.

Here's a recap of the games from the week before Christmas, December 20th...

The Tackle Boxers were home hosting the Oasis Bankers last Thursday night. The 'Box jump out to an early 7-5 lead thanks to Rich Jr.'s 3-0 win. Trevor and Zook beat Mark E. and Barney in the beer frame, 2-1. Bob started the seconf half with two wins for the Spinners, and Pops came up big with 3 of his own, bringing the score to 12-6. Bill Ide shot last for the Bankers and made it respectable by getting all 3 of his, making the final score 12-9 Tackle Box.

Downtown at the Down Lo, the Stickmen were 'home' taking on their barmates, the Diamondbacks. Izzy got 3, Kenny got 2, and Mike B. got 2 to make the score 8-4 at the break in favor of the D-Backs. Paul Wall got 2 for the Down Lo to keep it within reach. Scott and newbie Kris teamed up in the beer frame and beat Rusty and Ricky 2-0. Scott stayed at the table and got 3 wins, making the score 8-7. Keith got his first game tying it up at 8 all, but Ricky got the next 2 and Jimmy Scott got 2 out of 3 to make the final score 12-9 Diamondbacks.

Across town at the Oasis, the Bulldogs 'welcomed' in the Last Call Rack Pack. Chris and Dennis each got 3 in the first 2 matches to jump out to a quick lead. Chris got one of his via an 8-ball break and run. It was 9-3 at the half when Brian and Ty teamed up against Kevin Nickas and Rob Francis. Brian and Ty forced the Rack Pack to buy the beers this week as they won 2-1. Ty stayed at the table and stayed hot getting all 3 of his games. Captain Steve wrapped up the game in style with 3 of his own. Final score Bulldogs 16, Rack Pack 5.

Way out at the Empire, the Dragons rolled into town to soak up some mega-mugs 'o beer and play some pool. Thanks to James' 3-0 showing the Empire was up 7-5 at the break. Paul also got 2 to help the cause. In the beer frame, Empire scotch double partners Bob Cody and James teamed up and won against Steve Hambek and John Chamberlin. Steve stayed at the table and got 2 for his club. Krad was up next and got all 3 of his to put the Oasis on the hill with 10 points. Kenny shot last and got his first game for the deciding 11th point, but Bob Cody got the last 2 to make it a one-point match - 11-10 Dragons.

The Oasis O-Team was home taking on the Eagles crew. Joel Russo started the night with a quick 3-0 win, and Brian A. chipped in 2 more to help the score reach 7-5 O' at the break. Mike and Jimmy N. took on Bobbo and Chuck in the beer frame. The O-Team came out on top with a 2-0 win. Chuck got 2 of his games to bring the match score to 8-7 Oasis, but secret weapon Aaron flew under the radar to get 3 wins, and Slade tidied up the night with a nice 2-1 win making the final score 13-8 Oasis.

A very good game was brewing at the Down Lo as the other two home teams were also facing off, the Playa's and the Damned Loungers. The score was tied at 6-6 as Yang and David Larabee each got 2 wins, as did Playa's Dwayne and Leland. Leo got up to join Leland at the table for the beer frame against Jason Jones and captain Stephen Wells. Team Leo-land got the match 2-1. Larry got 2 more for the Playa's in the 5th spot, Pat got 2 for the Loungers in the 6th spot making the score 9-9 going into the 7th and final frame. Leo needed 2 for the win, but got greedy and got all 3 making the final score 12-9 Down Lo Playa's. 

Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas break. Hopefully you were lucky enough to get some pool paraphernalia from Santa! Remember, we're back at it next week with games on January 3rd, except for the Playa's - they have their bye week.

Good luck!

Results from Week #7
Dec 19, 2012, 12:39 am

Here's what happened last week (Dec. 13th)...

The Stickmen were home hosting the Oasis Buldogs on Table #5. The Bulldogs were up 8-4 at the break, thanks to Chris's 3-spot and Dennis and Ed's 2-spots. Sundy and Cele played the beer frame against Keith and Dennis, who won 2-0 on the road. In the bottom half Scott got 2 out of 3 against Paul Airth, but later found out that Paul is still 86'd from the bar which did not sit well with management. He will still get his 1 point since I didn't know at the time, but according to management he will not be playing there again. If he does, at the very least, he will receive no future points at the Down Lo. Ty and Brian each got 2 wins each for Oasis, making the final score 13-8 B-Dogs.

Over on Table #10 at the Down Lo, the match of the week was taking place. The Diamondbacks were 'home' taking on the Playa's. The Diamondbacks got out to a great start, to say the least - they won the match 11-1 at the beer frame. Jimmy and Izzy couldn't get the beer frame from Kevin and Larry, losing 2-1. But if there is one team who could reel off 9 in a row, it would be the Playa's - and they almost did. Larry and Kevin each got 3 wins, but Leo 'only' got 2 to wrap up the night. The final score got a lot closer - 12-9 Diamondbacks.

Just off campus, the Oasis Dragons were home hosting the Tackle Box Spinners. Teams traded 2-1 games in the first half making the score 7-5 Dragons at the break. Aaron and Krad beat Zook and Trevor for the beer frame honors, winning 2-1. Kenny Smith started the bottom half with 3 points, Krad followed with 2 more. Jonny Espinoza got the final 2 points for the Spinners making the bottom line 13-8 Dragons.

Down the Midway the Empire Club welcomed in the short-handed Oasis O-Team. Even short a player, the Oasis got out of Durham with a 14-7 win. James and Paul were the lone bright spots on the home side of the score sheet as they each got 2 wins. On the other side, Jimmy N., Brian, Mike, and Aaron each got 3 wins. The news of the night has to be from the beer frame match as the red-hot tandem of Mike Clarke and Brian Vignon took down another beer frame power house. A week after beating China's top shooters, The Damned's previously undefeated Yuli and Yang, the half-loud and half-quiet partnership beat Mike and Troy. The Empire was undefeated up to this point in beer frame matches.

Back at the Oasis, the Bankers were in a dog-fight with the Last Call Rack Pack. Pat Carmichael of the 'Pack got all 3 of his to lead his team to a 7-5 advantage at the break. George and Bill struck back and got the beer frame from Gary and Pat, 2-1. The Bankers added on 5 more in the bottom half to pull within 1 at 10-11, but the Bankers played Alec who still (according to my records) hasn't paid his $25 late player dues, so he and his team forfeited his 2 points, making the final score 11-8 Last Call. The next time Alec plays, he does so as an illegal roster player and his teammate's entire match will be forfeited. 

Duffy's made their way out to the Eagles joint last Thursday in hopes of a big win. It didn't happen this time as the Eagles came out on top 13-8. Donny and Robin led the charge with 3-0 victories for their team. Shawn Bell kept his hot shooting going as he won all of his games as well. Donny and Bobbo got the home beer frame win, beating Prana and Kevin K. 2-0. 

Good luck in week #8 as this is our last game before the Christmas break. Remember - it's only 1 week off this season as we will be back to games on January 3rd, 2013. Duffy's has the bye this week and gains one more Christmas shopping night on the rest of us.

Quick note for the Captains and 'secretarys' out there - please include last names or initials on the score sheets - especially those teams with multiple Mark's and Mike's. Also make sure the score sheet has the correct names, initials, and scores when you are the visitor signing the home team's sheet. Usually it's the home team captain not knowing there are multiple same names, or Ryans/Brians, on the visiting team.

Thanks-

Results from Week #6
Dec 12, 2012, 5:51 pm

Here we go...

The Eagles were home versus the Rack Pack on the 6th. Donny started the night off right with a 3-0 win for his Eagles, makingf the half time score 7-5 The Birds. David and Chuck also got the home beer frame win, defeatig Matt and Kevin L. 2-0. In the bottom stretch it was all Eagles - Robin got 3, David got 3, and Jon wrapped it up with 2 making the fial score 15-6 Eagles.

Downtown, downstairs, at the Down Lo the Damned Loungers welcomed in the Oasis O-Team. James helped the O's get out to an 8-4 lead with a 3 winner. Joel started the night off with 2, one of those wins via an 8-ball break-and-run. Breaking news: Yuli and Yang lost the beer frame. I repeat, Yuli and Yang have lost a beer frame! Mike Clarke and Brian Vignon were able to break the Chinese code and found a way to defeat the 2-headed beast, beating them 2-0. With that momentum, Brian, Mike and Aaron each got 2 wins in the final 3 spots, making the final score 14-7 Oasis on the road.

Upstairs at Duffy's tavern, a few people were there to watch the Yule Logs perform, but a majority showed up to watch the exciting match between Duffy's and the Stickmen. Brian, Sam, Cele, and Paul Wall each got 2 wins to start the night making it 8-4 Stickmen at the break. Scott and Madsack got the beer frame from Steve and Shawn, 2-1. Wheez made a rare appearance and got 2, but Prana and Shawn got the last laugh as they got 2 and 3 wins respectively for Duffy's to end the night. It was just a little too late as the Stickmen held on to win 11-10, and the crowd went crazy.

Across town at the Oasis, the Playa's traveled over to take on the Oasis Bankers. The Playa's were looking for more coming off their 20-1 thrashing of the Stickmen last week, but the Bankers held in there much better. Final score was 15-6 Playa's. Charles, Kevin, and Dwayne each got 3 wins in the first half. Leland got 2 which gave the Playa's a win at the break, up 11-1. Charles and Dwayne beat Mark and Jon in the beer frame, 2-0. Larry came to the table in the 5th spot and got 3 more wins for Down Lo, but Barney came back with 2 for Oasis, and Bill finished the night off with 3 of his own, making the score much more respectable. 

The Diamondbacks were home taking on the visiting Dragons of Oasis. Teams traded 2-1 wins as it was 6-6 at the break. Kenny Duff and Ricky won the beer frame for the D-Backs as they beat Micah and Steve H. Kenny Duff shot in the 5th spot and got all 3 of his games, but then John Chamberlin got 2 for his squad, and Rusty finished the night with 2 for his crew. Final score: 12-9 Diamondbacks.

Got the scoresheet from the Tackle Box... Rich Jr. got all 3 of his games for the 'Box, and James, Paul, and Bob Cody got all 3 of theirs for the Empire Club. Bob and Troy beat Trevor and Rich Jr. in the beer frame. Final score: Empire 13, Tackle Box 8.

Good luck next week-

Week #5 Results
Dec 5, 2012, 1:37 am

Here are the results from Week #5 (November 29th):

Have to get it out of the way - fast but painful, like ripping off a Band-Aid. The Stickmen got there asses handed to them by the Playa's, 20-1. Yes, twenty to one. A whole crap-load of Playa's got 3 wins - Charles. Leland. Kevin. Leo. Larry. Dwayne. Tom really sucked and got only 2 wins (sarcasm). Paul Wall was the lone Stickman to pull his head out and get a win - the rest of them got drunk and contemplated suicide. Amer and Leo won the beer frame and frolicked joyfully after doing so. Wheezel said "Man, if I was there..." 

Alright, moving on to other bars that actually housed real pool matches...

Out in Durham, the Empire Club lost 8-13 to the Duffy's Tavern crew, but the Empire players consoled each other and were overheard saying "Hey, at least we scored 7 more than the Stickmen!" The teams were tied at the break, but Duffy's poured it on in the end by getting 2 from Ed and Steve, and 3 from Kevin Kinnell to wrap up the night. The Empire won the beer frame 2-0.

The Bulldogs were home taking on their fellow barmates, the Bankers. The Bankers were up 7-5 at the half-way point thanks to Mark M.'s 3-0 showing. Mark stayed at the table and joined up with Bill to take on Steve and Ed in the beer frame. The Bankers won 2-0. In the bottom matches Jon and Alec got the Bankers to 10 points, but Bulldog Ty stopped their victory dance with a 3-0 win to give the 'Dogs an 11-10 final score.

Also at the Oasis, the Tackle Box made the trip over to take on the Oasis O-Team. The O's welcomed back to their team Joel Russo who led off and got 2 quick points. James followed him with 3 of his own, but Rich Jr. struck right back and got a 3-spot himself. At the break it was 7-5 Oasis. Jimmy Nguyen and Brian V. got the beer frame, beating Bob and Trevor 2-0 - Stacy smiled. Brian and Aaron each got 2 more for the O-Team, and Slade wrapped it up with a nice and pretty 3-0 bow to make the final score 14-7 Oasis.

On table 5 at the Down Lo, the Damned Loungers welcomed in the Eagles squad. It was another ass kicking as the Down Lo won 18-3. In fact, each Damned individual player scored at least 1 more win than the entire Stickmen team. Tony, David, Yang, and Stephen W. each got 3 wins, the other 3 players scored two each. Same story, different week - Chico bar owner's either worst nightmare or best friends, Yuli and Yang, teamed up and got yet another beer frame. After the match, Eagles players were quoted saying "Whew, at least we won 2 more than the Stickmen!"

The Last Call hosted the Dragons-Rack Pack duel. The Dragons didn't get the memo that they were the Pack's guests and stuck it to them pretty handedly (but not as handedly as the Playa's did to the Stickmen). The Dragons only won 17-4, not 20-1. The Dragons almost made it official in the first half as they were up 10-2 going into the beer break. Steve Hambek and Micah each got 3-0 hat tricks, as Aaron and his dad got 2 each. Steve and Aaron teamed up for the beer frame, taking on the host's Rob and Curtis. Dragons won 2-0. In the bottom frames John and Jeff kept the heat on as they each got 3. Nick at least let his Rack Packers put away their cues on a good note, he got 2 out of 3.

Interesting fact, or at least a fact - every match had 2-0 beer frame wins. No 2-1 victories. Wow.

OK, once the sun comes out again we will continue the season with week #6. Except if you are a Bulldog. You will do the Bulldog things you do in your spare time this week - you are on a bye. See you in week #7. Everyone else, wish the Stickmen good luck.

Also, I have a few players/teams who now owe $25 for their late player adds (and now face forfeited points) - if you own a Walt, a Mike, and/or an Alec (or Alex) for example, on your team you better get in contact with me right away.

Week #3 and Week #4 Results
Nov 16, 2012, 10:22 pm

Sorry about the web site issues. Should be all good here on out, hopefully with a few upgrades as a bonus.

Here's the results from week #3 (November 8th)...

Out at the Empire Club, the Stickmen car pooled down the Midway. The Empire was there waiting for them, as they got out to an 8-4 lead - thanks to James' 3-0 win. Bob and Troy beat Sundy and Wheezel to get the beer frame at home, 2-0. Troy got 2 in the 5th spot, but Madsack and Scott got 2 each to get the final score to 12-9 Empire.

The Down Lo Diamondbacks were home hosting the Oasis Bankers last Thursday. They got out to a quick lead and actually won the match in the first half as they were up 11-1 going into the beer frame. Kenny Duff, Mike Karol, and Greg got all 3 of their games. The two Banker's Marks teamed up against Ricky and Bulldog in the beer frame, and the Bankers won 2-1. Mike Brandt and Rusty kept the 3-0 games going in the 5th and 6th spot, but Bill Ide got 2 out of 3 to make the final score 18-3 D-Backs.

The Tackle Box was finally at home taking on the traveling Eagles. The Eagles came out on top 16-5 thanks to David, Terry, and Jon's 3-0 hat tricks. Trevor and Rich Jr. won the beer frame 2-1, defeating Jon and Donny. 

In a fairly close match, the Dragons were up against the Down Lo Damned at the Oasis last week. David Larabee and Steve traded 3-0 wins for each of their respective teams making the halftime score 7-5 Damned. Yule and Yang played in the beer frame again, and won again, beating Jeff and Jason of the Dragons. Yuli and Yang got 5 points combined to get them to 12, but Aaron Smith got 3 in the final frame to make it a close 12-9 Damned Lounge victory.

Also at the Oasis the O-Team was welcoming in the Duffy's crew. On paper, the game looked like it was going to be a close one but it turned out to be anything but. James V., Jimmy N., and Cap'n Mike started the night with 3-0 wins. Stacy's 2-win match gave them 11 points and the win at the break. Brian V. and Mike got the beer frame as well, beating the tandem of Kevin and Steve S 2-0. In the bottom half Oasis Brian and Slade got 2 wins, and Aaron got all 3 of his to give their O's a surprising and decisive 18-3 victory. Captain Ed was out of town, but I'm sure he would have rather come back to a different outcome.

Downtown at the Down Lo, the Playa's were home against the visiting Bulldogs. Dennis Bruch was the lone shining spot on the Bulldogs half of the score sheet - he got all 3 of his games, one via an 8-ball break and run. Dennis kept his hot hand going on the big tables of the Down Lo as he also won the beer frame with Ed, beating Amer and Dwayne 2-1. For the Playa's, Charles, Jason, and Leo got all 3 of their games. Gregg 'only' got 2 games, but one of them was a full run out. Final score: Playa's 15, Bulldogs 6.

The Last Call Rack Pack were on the bye for week #3. The Stickmen start a 2-week Thanksgiving vacation with a bye week in week #4. 

 

Surprisingly all the score sheets are in for week #4 - by Saturday night!

So here's the results for week #4 (November 15th)...

The Diamondbacks of the Down Lo were at home welcoming in the Empire Club of Durham. James shot out of the gate for the Empire getting all 3 of his games. Unfortunately those 3 points turned out to be 3/5ths of their total points for the night. Greg, Ricky, Mike Brandt, and Jimmy Scott all got 3 wins to give the D-Backs a 16-5 win. Eric and Troy did get the beer frame, though - beating Greg and Izzy 2-1.

In a battle at the Oasis, the 'home' team Bulldogs were taking on the Oasis O-Team. The Bulldogs were up big at the break - 9-3, thanks to Keith and Chris getting all 3 of their games. Steve and Ed beat Mike and Aaron in the beer frame, as Stacy was buying either way. In the bottom half, the O-Team woke up and got 6 of the final 9 points and got back to a respectable 12-9 loss. Aaron got it kick-started with a 3-0 win in the 5th spot.

The Down Lo Damned Loungers were home this week taking on the Tackle Box. The Damned came out on top 16-5 as David Larabee and Steve McGrill got all 3 of their games. Captain Stephen got all 3 of his games, but that was due to a forfeit - the Tackle Box failed to field a 7th shooter. Believe it or not but Yuli and Yang teamed up for the beer frame and won again beating Trevor and Rich Jr. 2-0.

Also facing off at the Oasis was the Bankers versus the Dragons. Krad and Aaron each got 3 wins for the Dragons giving them an 8-4 lead at the half. Steve and Micah teamed up for the scotch doubles beer frame against the team of Jim and Mark. The Dragons came out victorious 2-0. Steve got 3 in the 5 spot and Micah got 2 in the 6th spot to get them to 13. Avoiding a huge Dragon win, Bill Ide came in and wrapped things up in the 7th spot for the Bankers with a 3-0 win. Final score: Dragons 13, Bankers 8.

Over at Duffy's Tavern, the Duff crew were home against the Last Call Rack Pack. It was all Rack Pack in the first half as they jumped out to an 8-4 lead. Pat and Gary led the charge with 3-0 victories for each. Ed and Prana got the beer frame, defeating Gary and Nick 2-0. Duffy's roared back in the second half as Prana, Steve, and Shawn each got 2 wins, but it left them 1 point away from a big comeback. Final score: Last Call 11, Duffy's 10.

Everyone is off this next week for Thanksgiving. Please take a few days, or at least hours, away from billiards and enjoy some time with your family. We all resume on November 29th, except for the Diamondbacks - they have their bye week. 

There are a few players out there that haven't paid yet. I haven't had time to track it all down and contact the Captains, but once I do - and the players aren't paid for still - penalty fees and/or point subtractions will occur. In other words - last chance to pay your dues at the Oasis.

Happy Thanksgiving, and good luck in week #5!

-Scott-

Sorry about the web site issues. Should be all good here on out, hopefully with a few upgrades as a bonus.

Week #2 Results
Nov 6, 2012, 11:58 pm

It's official! Individual stat percentages are now part of the stat section on this website - no need for an outside spreadsheet! Once you click on the 'Statistics' tab in the left-hand column, two important things to know for right now:

1). You can sort the stats list by percentages by clicking on the heading 'WP' (win percentage) - click once for high to low, again for low to high. Note that the list only shows the first 100 players of the league on page 1, then the other 20 or 30 players on page 2. So if you sort the page it only does the current page, it won't include the 2nd page players. Until it is changed (hopefully), there is a work-around: Click on any team in the team filter drop-down box. Once it loads that team, go back and select 'all teams' in that same drop-down menu and it will show ALL players on one page. Then sort by percentages to get an accurate leaderboard of ALL players in the league. Sorry for the annoyance - I'm working on it.

2). For some reason it doesn't consider 100% as the top percentage, it puts it down at the bottom of the list, just above 0%. I'm working on that too, but as good as those guys are I don't think they'll stay at 100% and when they drop to 95% or whatever they will show up at the top of the list again. For those players that are 3 for 3 all year, it would be good to have them down on the bottom anyways.

So that's the news on that, here's what happened last week:

The Dragons were in another close one this week. They were 'home' versus the Oasis O-Team. The O-Team was up 7-5 at the break as teams traded 2-1 games. Steve and Krad beat Jimmy Nguyen and Mike Clarke giving the Dragons the beer frame 2-0. Dragon Steve got 3 wins in the 5th match, and Krad got 2 more, putting the Dragons on the hill 10-8. But O-Team Aaron came up big in the final match and got all 3 games to give his O's a come-from-behind 11-10 win.

At the Down Lo, the Stickmen were home hosting the Eagles. The Stickmen jumped out to a 7-5 lead thanks to Cele's 3-0 victory. Keith and Sundy kept the momentum flowing into the beer frame as they beat David Napier and Jon Cox 2-0 for the honors. David got 2 in the 5th match for the Eagles, but Keith Abarra came back and got all 3 wins in his match, and Madsack cleaned up the night with 2 wins in the 7th spot, giving the Down Lo Stickmen a 13-8 victory.

A couple tables over, the Playa's were also home hosting the Tackle Box, who were on the road at the Down Lo for the 2nd straight week. It wasn't pretty. Getting right to it, the Playa's won 21-0.The Playa's dominated as much as you possibly could. Gregg and Amer even got the beer frame 2-0 beating Trevor and Zook. So here's the 3-0 list: Charles, Kevin, Leland, Gregg, Leo, Dwayne, and Larry. The Down Lo even had a record 4 break and runs during the night - Charles, Kevin, Leland, and Leo accomplished the task. On the bright side, the Tackle Box get to play their first home game of the season next week.

Upstairs at Duffy's Tavern, the Bankers started their season on the road after a week one bye. The Bankers got their season off on the right note with a close 11-10 win at Duffy's place. Paul and Shawn each got 3-0 wins for Duffy's, and Mark Murgia and Mark Edwards each got 3-0 wins for the Bankers. Ed and Shawn couldn't get the beer frame again as Jim Wilson and Mark Edwards stole the honors on the road. 

Out at the Last Call, the Diamondbacks were the road team, but they didn't play like it. At the break, the D-Backs were up 10-2 thanks to Kenny and Greg's 3-0 victories. Ricky and Rusty got 2 each. Kenny and Greg teamed up in the beer frame to defeat Kevin Nickas and Nick Altenberg 2-0. Jimmy Scott got 2 in the 5th spot, and Bulldog got 2 in the 6th spot, putting the Down Lo team up 14-4. But Rob Francis made it a little more respectable with a 3-0 showing in the 7th spot, making the final score 14-7 Diamondbacks.

The Bulldogs of the Oasis were home against the Down Lo Damned (the team formerly known as Towne Lounge I). The Damned were up 7-5 at the break thanks to Stephen Well's lead-off 3-0 win. The Chinese Connection of Yuli and Yang were back in the beer frame again teamed up against Captain Steve and Brian Augustine this time. Same results though - a beer frame win for the Damned. The Damned kept piling it on as Pat got 2 in the 5th spot, Yuli got 2 more, and Yang wrapped it up with 3 more at the end. Final score 14-7 Damned Loungers.

The Empire Club was on the bye last week. The Last Call Rack Pack get to take this week off.

Looking for another place to play pool? The Tackle Box will be hosting a tournament this Wednesday, November 7th. If my memory is correct, the buy-in is $5 and the spots will be picked around 6:00pm. Call the Tackle Box to make sure, or Jonny or Rich Jr.

Also - check your pool bags - a spotted cue ball came up missing at the Down Lo last Thursday night. If you picked it up, let me know, I'll return it to the proper captain no questions asked.

Good luck this week!
