The ol' tap-a-roo

Posted 2 June 2004

Situation: Playing pool with Aaron Ehlinger. The 10 ball is sitting on the verge of the corner pocket. The cue ball is along the side wall.

Me : You're going to scratch.
Aaron : No, see that's what backspin is for. So you don't makes the shot scratch.
Both of us watch the cue ball hit the 10 in, and then back up the entire length of the table into the opposite corner pocket
Aaron : ...Ridiculous.
