In August, 1992 I won a local 9-ball tournament and earned the right to play 'The Professor' Grady Mathews, who was in town (Syracuse NY) for a trick shot exhibition and clinic.
Grady has appeared on ESPN several times. He appeared in, and was a consultant in the movie 'The Color of Money', and was the world one-pocket champion! The match was handicapped and the game was 9-ball...
I got 8 to 6 on the wire and the called 7. He won the first two games and then I won the next six and $400 !

Hey, it's not much to brag about... don't think I could do it again but
It's MY 15 minutes of fame!
The image below is the flyer he distributed prior to the match. Click on it to read the information on it.
Also, take a look at my all - conquering Micky's good times Saloon team.
