A duck walks into a bar and says to the bartender i'll have a bud light, and do you have any grapes? The bartender says no grapes and hands him the bud. The next day the duck comes in and says to the bartender, do you have any grapes? The bartender says no. The next day the duck comes in again and asks for grapes the bartender says for the last time NO, if you come back again i'm going to take a hammer and nail your webbed feet to the bar GET OUT, so the duck leaves. The next day the duck comes back and says to the bartender do you have any nails? The bartender says, of course not this is a bar why would we have any nails? The duck says great can i have some grapes?

I made a post a month or two ago about pool league. My pool team made it to the final round of the regional tournement. A win today would have been a trip to vegas for my eight man team with flights hotel and money included.
For those of you who don't know about pool league it is a best of 5 every person is assigned a handicap between 2-7 you have to win 1 less than your handicap number before your apponent wins 1 less than his number You can only play a max of 23 handicap points in a nights so your team cannot be all high handicaps
The first guy on my team is a 4 he played a 5 and lost 4-0
The second guy is a 6 he played a 4 and won 5-1
The third guy is a 4 he played a 4 and won 3-0
The fourth guy is a really shitty 5 and he lost to a 6 5-2
Now gets to the fun part I have been a 5 for 2 years I dropped down last week to a 4, This was a winner take all go to vegas between me and another 4 (no pressure right)
First rack, I won i couldn't even breath i tried to talk and nothing came out
Second rack I lost
Third rack I gave him ball in hand and he hit the 8 in the wrong pocket
Fourth rack he won
NOW IT IS DOWN TO 1 RACK FOR VEGAS
It comes down to I have 1 ball left and he has 1 ball left he gives me ball in hand with 1 ball left and the 8 I made my ball and then the 8 but I scratched on the 8 at the other end of the table

I quite betting on sports last fall after my long time bookie became a real pain in my ass. I won 6500 on the celtics last year when they won the championship and he was no where to be found all summer. finally right before week 1 he finaly gave me the last 1500 he "claimed" was all he owed me. He only gave me about 5000 total. Then weeks 1 through about 6 or 7 i ended up being up again about another 3500. He avoided me like the plague so I started betting 500-1000 per game thinking I would either go up big or back to 0.
This didn't work and i ended up down 2 grand. He was up my assssssss for the money. I stopped betting for the most part except for on futures. Lost about 2grand more on football futures, so ive been stroking him ever since november as payback and still owe him 1000. I plan on paying him the rest in the next few weeks but back to the story I don't bet on sports anymore.
Just wondering if anyone else still comes on covers everyday just for the forums and doesn't bet
