asshattery at higher levels of pool

Professional pool player Jennifer Barretta wrote on her blog about having to deal with another player’s asshattery at a tournament. The mysterious asshat was given the pseudonym Stanky Hernandez. I wonder who he could be?

Well, let me do the wondering — YOU go over and read that post right now.



blog post round up

You didn’t miss anything, but if you think you did…

  • I wrote something for the ladies (and got some condescending emails from a dude about it — but we’ll save that entertainment for another day, tee hee!)
  • pointing and missing is swag
  • occasionally, I am a nature-loving hippie (who also eats nature’s tasty creatures)

this is common sense

I’m going to some big-ass pool tournament and expo this weekend. You know which one. If you decide to seek me out, keep the following in mind:

  the tournament is my #1 priority
  I will let you know if I am not up for chit-chat. Do not approach me during or after a match.
  identify yourself
  I am automatically suspicious of strangers. If you read this blog and that is how you know of me, say so. If I met you before and forgot, please reintroduce yourself.
  objects in mirror are duller than they appear
  If you’ve never met me before, I may not live up to your expectations.
  objects in mirror are more f#cking nuts than they appear
  If you’ve never met me before, I may be far more assholic than you could ever imagine.
  there are a lot of Asian girls that play pool
  Make sure I’m the right one.
  minimum safe distance
  When in doubt, say nothing and stay behind the fence.

  1. Let me know when your matches are… I probably shoot this morning unless I caught a bye then it might be this afternoon/evening.

    See you in a few hours…

  2. Thanks for the link to Jenn’s story about playing “Stanky”. I’m aquainted with Jenn and I’ve seen “Stanky” play a number of times. I would have loved to be there for that match.
    Jenn is very classy and “Stanky” is pure slime, start to finish.
