It’s been a while, but I’m finally headed back out on the road and this trip is gonna be a special one. The other day, I received an invitation from the Archer family to go hang out with them at the Marietta Billiard Club in Georgia.
There aren’t many places in the billiards world as completely awesome as Johnny and Kim’s place. We’re talking 13,000 square feet of pure, unadulterated pool heaven. Forty (that’s right 40) 9 ft pool tables including a crazy triple shimmed Gold Crown.
The pool tables are sick, but the real treat is going to be spending some quality time with Johnny, Melanie and the entire Archer family. Plus, I know both Kim Davenport and Shawn Putnam hang out there as well. That’s some serious pool royalty there. The last time I saw Johnny and Shawn was at the Mosconi Cup in 2011, so I’m looking forward to catching up.
Unfortunately, the travel accommodations that Keven made for me aren’t quite as posh and glamorous as I’m used to. Instead of rollin’ in First Class like I requested, Keven wrapped me in bubbles and shoved me in a box.
Since I’m finally getting back out on the road (and I’m going where I’m going), I’m not gonna complain too much. Hopefully they have drink cart service on the UPS plane…
