Details 30zip Dave Hancock of Indiana Construction scored 30zip (1st 3 games) at Sidepocket Georgetown for the Playfair Men’s Tuesday Night League.

How many times have you missed a shot because 1) you pulled the trigger in less then (4) seconds or 2) you took 10 seconds or longer then you pulled the trigger. It happens once or twice a game to everybody. Here is an example. You're playing pool and everything is going in. You're pace is great and all of a sudden you come to a real easy cut shot. "Shah-Zam" you get down and shoot this shot in less then four seconds. Right? Guess what you just rattled the ball in the corner pocket. Now...

Orion, The Giant Hunter

 

Orion is the brightest constellation in the winter sky and is very easy to find. It looks something like its namesake, the Hunter, and radiates with fascinating stars.
