Topic: 1-Ball? Really?

Author: Aged Whine & Cheese Original Message Posted: Oct 7 2010 1:59PM

Fireball describes their one-ball event as follows:
"Win the 1-Ball World Championship…Win a Fireball table!
The event is played using a 2/3 format with each game played to 1 goal. The third game is win by 2".

Somehow that doesn't sound like one-ball to me.

To simplify these rules: one game, win by 2. It works out exactly the same.

Yup. Whatever it is, it's not 1-ball.

Don't argue with Tim. He CAN count to 1. Lawyer/MBA/Computer Scientist you know.

Timbellina, Payback at the Freddy Classic Sunday December 19.

I already have my jet lag excuse all worked out by the way. Dave will bring his pet cat. Robbie said he will have a new 5 bar and 3 bar. Moya has a new hair colour. Tuan will show up late and will only stop yawning for money matches. Richard will come out of retirement for one night only yet again. Maybe we can even have a one ball tournament - Win by 5 up to a maximum of 5?

I can see it in all my mind already.

Just making friends all over the world...

Sunday Dec 19...

Looking forward to it Freddie, I'll plan to be there!

D'ya think you can source out an authentic/replica Canucks jersey? I love the idea of a Sami Salo jersey going to the winner of a 1-Ball tournament.


BTW, as I was adding this to my calendar I noticed something that I had diarized for the next evening:

Can get Canucks jersey but limited as to which one. Last I checked it was Sundin. Maybe Dave wants it since they are similar in ability to 'comeback"? LOL

I think I also saw a Hank Sedin jersey as well but sill ned to check. Canucks jerseys are not big sellers in China. Also got a Crosby (retro blue Penguins) jersey.

Myself, I bought a Naslund jersey a few years ago. Can bring that one. I have over 20 NFL jerseys including retro Marino, Elway, Earl Campbell and a few others.

I don't want to bring any more than one though because that might confuse any lawyer/MBA/Computer types...

Will check into it and let people know.

If not that a Canucks jersey then maybe a cool new NFL jersey? Lots of those here. Will try to coordinate with Moya's hair colour for the night. Moya, have you decided yet?

Some state run Chinese company decided to knock off Robbie's 3 bar and are going to start selling it to Romania and Botswana foosballers. Poor guys...

I told them they could knockoff my 2 bar to go with it for a package deal!
