Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

Our APA team is so awesome.  We took 1st place in our 8-ball division and 2nd place in 9-ball division in the regular season, and last night marked the first night of playoff’s.  The top 3 teams in the division make it to playoffs, plus a wild-card.  1st plays wild card and 2nd plays 3rd.  Then the winners get together the following week to determine first place of the division.

So we ended up winning both 8-ball and 9-ball last night, meaning we get to go ahead to next week for the division championship.  This is so great!  All our team members are really good, and give one for the team.

Also, as a nice high-note (no pun intended), we won the APA High Point Team Award for in 8-ball.  64 points!  Each person on the team got this little cool pin:

I’m quite the manly guy, so I don’t even pin it to my shirt.  I pin it directly to my chest.  I’m a hardcore pool player, you see. 

Special recognition goes to Shawna, who pulled out an amazing win for our team in 8-ball against an incredibly talented opponent (I can say that because the opponent is my wife).  Kristen kicked ass, Mike won solidly, Ren won but his skill level went up, and Peter won in 9-ball to close out the 4th match.   In fact, everyone won at least once!

Of course, I love our team whether we win or lose.  But winning is so awesome!  If we had lost, I’d say we’re all still winners, but it’s much more fun to just plain win and leave it at that.  Doncha think?

I’m on an awesome pool team called “Steely Duran”.  We play Wednesday nights at Shooter’s up in NW Austin and we have tons of fun.  It’s an APA league, which means we get a chance to go to Vegas and compete at a national level.

Our team is made up of (L-to-R) Ronnie, Peter, Jennefer, Shawna, me, Kristen, Ren and Mike.

What makes our team so awesome?  Well let me tell you

  1. Wide variety of skill levels.  We’ve got ’em all up and down the scale, and we always play well.  Since the APA requires a ceiling of cumulative skill levels, you can’t stack a team with all high-skill players.  It’s an amateur league and we need to mix it up.
  2. We have lots of fun.  Whether we drink, do little parties here and there, pose for pictures (notice the drinks), practice pool, order more drinks, listen to great music on the internet jukebox, make jokes, drink jokes, coach each other, flirt and drink, it doesn’t matter.  We always have fun.
  3. We’re all incredibly good-looking.  I mean, damn.
  4. We’re good.  We’re in, like 1st place an all!  I mean, damn.
  5. Did I mention how hot we are?  Damn!

I’m also on a little bit of a billiard high because I got two (2) nine-on-the-break’s.  In a row!  How lucky is that?!?!?!?!

tsk tsk
