A Little 8-Ball

I think the last time I shot some pool was with my brothers and cousin at U of I in Chicago last year. Knowing my dearth of pool skills, I took up Mike on his offer to give me some pointers. We played a few games at the Union pool room last night. He's good, no debate, but what impressed me was it took only a few minor observations and suggestions to significantly improve my game. Learning the proper posture and form were probably the single most important things I walked away with. Aiming, cutting, splitting are among the things yet to be perfected. In any event, it was fun and I soon hope to add pool as a fun activity to my limited list of hobbies.
