did you know that people play billiards competitively? like, it’s a sport or something! i mean, they have tournaments. it’s a professional activity! i was over at some friend’s house last night and we went to turn on a movie. the tv came on and what should we see but some semifinal round of a billiard competition! i was like, “you’ve got to be kidding me!” but no, this was not a joke. it was totally for real. and there was even prize money! like, 25grand! insane…. although, as we watched, we actually started getting hooked. the two guys competing were setting up all sorts of really cool-looking trick shots. but even as cool as they looked, i still couldn’t get over the fact that billiards was a professional, competitive activity (i refuse to call it a sport)!
