I went to test them out on something I'm proud of, The new Smooth Jazz 106.7 billboard that I designed for the radio station.

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.
