Thanks to all who came out to shark and be sharked at the Shark ’em tournament last week. Congrulations to Mike Sr. (Dolezel), owner of Palm Beach Billiards, for withstanding the annoying comments about the room, the food, the beer (or lack of it), the ceiling tiles (or lack of them), and the hearing aid that he turns off when it gets to be too annoying (“Can you hear me, Mike? Can you hear me yet?”)!
Paul, the mob Soprano and best dressed pool player Cerini, finished second, refusing to give up the whereabouts of missing teamster Jimmy Hoffa. And he was finally outed when it was discovered that the supposedly geniune Italian leather shoes that he polishes every day were in fact K-Mart blue-light specials!
Matt motor mouth Kaplan finished a brave third, despite all the gas noise (okay, it was really from the f * rt machine, courtesy of Al Cashwell).
Rumors and requests abound that we may do this again sometime in the not so far future! Stay tuned.
