8/24    New pool player looking to buy a "decent" cue in the south bay.  Those
        at Copeland sell for about $10 to $40.  Have no idea if they are
        "decent".  Recommendations of places to buy a "decent" cue would be
        greatly appreciated.  Best if they have some knowledgable staffs to
        help me select the right one.
        \_ dont buy that crap from those sporting goods stores..
           search web for viking, meucci, etc..
           \_ This is good advice.  Go to a specialty pool/billiards store,
              not a general sporting goods store.  Going to copeland's for a
              pool cue is like going to McDonald's for fine french
              cuisine. -mice
        \_ I suppose it depends on your definition of 'decent' and what your
           budget is.  I spent $250 on an 18 Oz. meucci (a very light cue)
           about 4 or 5 years ago.  I'm still using it, and it's a fun cue
           to play with -- the weight and balance are excellent, and it
           doesn't look like a cheap POS.  Of course, I've had my ass handed
           to me by people playing with whatever is at the pool hall, so
           ultimately the equipment isn't likely to affect your game unless
           you're really good or it's *really* bad.  Check out:
           http://www.hawleys.com/main.htm
           They have a great selection and their staff is really helpful
           and responsive.  Shoot me an email if you ever want to go shoot
           a table or two, or just want to chat more at length.   -mice
        \_ it is not going to make any difference what so ever.  Don't
           waste your money unless you get a discounted rate.

7/3     ARG 0 - 4 GER!  That's a huge spread.  What was wrong with Argentina?
        \_ You give a damn about soccer?  What's wrong with you?
           \_ Giving a damn about the World Cup != giving a damn about soccer.
              This has been an exciting, topsy-turvy tournament. Maradona must
              be tearing his (incredibly absurdly dyed) hair out.

6/9     Synchronized Macarana-esque dance after first 2010 World Cup goal.

        Oh no, the same disease that has plagued football here at home is now
        spreading to soccer abroad.
        \- You may be too young to remember ROGER MILLA and the DANCE OF THE
           CORNER. Did you see BISHOP D.TUTU dancing? That was pretty funny.
