Dear Broadway Billiards Cafe
 

Pool is fun, but, my stroke is a bit funny these days, and my aim is a bit off, and my follow thru is a bit, well, un-followed-ish now.

My game misses you

"However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results" ~Winston Churchill

 

"It is not length of life, but depth of life~RWE"

"Have no friends not equal to yourself" ~C.fucius

 

 

Now your a wild thing, now your the good guy, now your the bad guy, now your asking me bewildering personal questions about who I am, now your being evasive, now your thinking I am talking about me, now your insinuating we are the same, now you are assuming I know I am beneath you, now you are elsewhere other than where you were before we met. Once you hang with me, after a awhile, you slowly start to realize exactly what you are, and ditto, who the hell is anybody, I don't know what that is, I don't know what we are, but for sure it got exposed, and then after, there is more of it, reason? Maybe to inflict it, maybe to enjoy it, or just maybe to fight the change; your welcome.

I never expect anything in return, except a little respect and maybe shot of whiskey. I never ask for much, still, I find I get more than I can clutch or fancy.

Trust u'r-basic Instinct...

 

“The leadership instinct you are born with is the backbone. You develop the funny bone and the wishbone that go with it.” ~Elaine Agather

 

“Good instincts usually tell you what to do long before your head has figured it out.” ~Michael Burke

“She had a womanly instinct that clothes possess an influence more powerful over many than the worth of character or the magic of manners.” ~Louisa May

“Telling us to obey instinct is like telling us to obey "people." People say different things: so do instincts. Our instincts are at war.... Each instinct, if you listen to it, will claim to be gratified at the expense of the rest....” ~C.S. Lewis

“Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“When a gifted team dedicates itself to unselfish trust and combines instinct with boldness and effort, it is ready to climb.” ~Patanjali

 

“As the traveler who has lost his way, throws his reins on his horse's neck, and trusts to the instinct of the animal to find his road, so must we do with the divine animal who carries us through this world” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Judge me all you want, just keep the verdict to yourself"

~ From a Winston advertisement

Take into Consideration all the possibilities of what you ask for.

In my Lab, there is a copy machine about ten feet away from the tutor station (Desk, lamp, teacher stuff). There are a few stations like this in my lab.

The sound of the copier machine is distracting the tutor; the tutor is annoyed by its sounds, so the tutor asks me.

"It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice" ~Author Unknown

"Would it be a problem if you can move (the Nine Hundred and eighty two pound machine; yes that is-982-pounds) copier to a different part of the lab, were'n I cannot be distracted by the noise of the copier being used"?

My reply was, can you just move to a different desk, away from the copier, there is plenty available around?

She ignores my answer or more to the point, my solution to her inconsiderate request, and continues to tutor the student.

Later that afternoon, the tutor goes over my head and asked the supervisor.

“The noise of the copier being used is distracting my tutelage for the students, is they’re anything ‘William’ can do to fix this problem?”

The supervisor asks me, "William, is there anything you can do to fix this problem"?

Anything I thought? I said, "yes I can".

So I did.

A day later, I higher'd a new tutor that doesn’t mind the noise of the copier being used.

Problem fixed, class dismissed.

Broadway Billiards Club, my last match...

 

I didn’t realize what an emotional attachment I had to BBC till it was closed down on February 27th 2009. The lose of my home for my inner game player, will always be reminded, during to the holidays, during the rainy days, during the moments I would introduce the game of pool billiards to others who have never had the pleasure of getting the ball in the hole.

When I got introduced to the APA, I was a made a captain right away, didn't even join a team, nobody wanted me, so I got a spot in a bar and had to find recruits. My first recruit for my pool team, George. This happened at Broadway Billiards Cafe; that was a little over 6 years ago. BBC was a place were I honed what little skills I have today, now that it is closed, I’ll soon have even less skills, unless I am willing to pay double the amount for half the time or at the very least, stop with the yo-yo shooting, yes that is right, free stroking for hours and barely paying a penny for it, a place to not think, a place to decompress a place to learn something new.

Broadway Billiards Cafe was not only a place were I just shot, but it was a place were I can go when I had no were else to be or just needed to get away from were my mind was thinking and my feelings were hard and heavy. Broadway Billiards was my auto pilot stop, my feet would do the walking with out me having a destination and I would end up at Broadway Billiards Cafe for a cup of coffee and old friends.

New York City loses another poolroom - Broadway Billiards

Article By Jude Rosenstock ~ PhotoStream by W.F

Broadway Billiards CafeBroadway Billiards CafeBroadway Billiards CafeBroadway Billiards CafeBroadway Billiards CafeBroadway Billiards CafeBroadway Billiards CafeBroadway Billiards Cafe

I got word last night that Broadway Billiards closed its doors for the last time yesterday ending 20+ years of pool at the 21st Street location. Although it was not a room I frequented, many of my friends took advantage of their cheap hourly rates and handful of well-maintained GC IIIs. Without a doubt, this will have a huge impact on the landscape of pool in Manhattan as hundreds of aspiring new players and long time veterans look for a new homeroom.

The place opened in the late 1980s in the Color Of Money boom under the name Society Billiards. The owners also had a club upstairs by the name Society Cafe and it was regarded as another upscale room in New York City. At that time, the Chelsea area was home to The Billiard Club (40+ tables), Chelsea Billiards (54 tables), Mammouth Billiards (40+ tables), Pockets (30+ tables) so the new Society Billiards and their basement location was going to make them a tough sell in a very competitive billiard market. It wasn't long before the place was sold to the Mammouth Corporation which already was buying up several rooms throughout the city.

Mammouth quickly changed the name to Broadway Billiards, dropped the hourly rate to their standard $3 per person per hour and fitted the room with their typical ice cream box right near the counter (as though every pool player is simply craving a popcicle from time to time). The hours of business were also changed to 24 hours 7 days a week which made the Broadway Billiards location Mecca to anyone that wanted to gamble. During one lunch hour in my teens, with my heart racing at a million miles per hour, I ran my first rack of 9ball from the break during practice at Broadway Billiards.

Since then, the room raised their rates modestly as the rest of the Mammouth Corporation went under. The original Mammouth Billiards on 26th Street sold all of their billiard equipment (tables and all) for a reported $10,000. The Greenwich Village location, Le Q, had a reputation that could only be properly documented in police reports and their notorious reputation eventually got the best of their business. All of the midtown locations would lose their leases to more prosperous deals but Broadway Billiards seemed to endure until now.

It was a favorite for many players in New York City, especially many of the regulars who once frequented New York's best room of the 1990s, Chelsea Billiards. Easily, Broadway Billiards could be seen as the last tie to pool of the past. As stated, although this was not my room of choice, I'm sorry for my friends that will need to venture elsewhere and I'm sorry for what is to come for New York City pool. It's so frustrating to see serious pool reaching new heights in the Metropolitan area and yet, most rooms struggle to stay in business.
