I got a present last night – a brand new (to me) set of billiard balls. Isn’t that exciting?
Until now, we’ve been using balls that apparently aren’t the right size. Who knew? When I bought them 30+ years ago, I didn’t even know there was a right size. But since I’ve been playing in the league, I’ve learned a few things. And the number one thing is – size does matter 🙂
I’m not a fan of buying anything used, so I was ready to shell out for a brand new set. I’d been procrastinating – such a shock 😯 – so I hadn’t gotten to the pool ball store. And last night, the league operator offered me a set last night. At the best deal possible, too – free. They aren’t new, but really, since they’re practically indestructible, they still work fine. And shiny-new doesn’t matter.
What does matter is that now that I have the right balls, I’ll be ready for the pro circuit in no time.
