USA! USA! Edition (8/21/12)
Believe it or not, Labor Day is just around the corner. That got me thinking about how to tie Labor Day to billiards supplies (since it always comes back to the gratuitous sales pitch). Then it hit me. Labor Day celebrates the American worker, so why not use this holiday to feature some of the best pool cues made here in the United States? This week we'll be looking at four of my favorite pool cues from four of my favorite domestic manufacturers: Joss, Schon, Viking and McDermott. That and I'm feeling extra patriotic and such following a pretty solid showing for the US at the Olympics.
Once you're done checking out all the awesome pool cues, treat yourself to a new article from the one and only Samm Diep. This week Samm will be talking about how to let go and play like a kid when you're at the pool table. On a somewhat unrelated note, Samm (through the Billiards Education Foundation) is raffling off a genuine Frank T. Dawg statue signed by all the players in the 2011 Mosconi Cup (all the proceeds go to the BEF, so be sure to buy a ticket). And away we go!

Samm Diep's Cue Tips: Oh, To Be Young Again...
When you watch young players fire balls into the center of the pocket at 100 miles per hour, there’s a quality so admirable about it. I’m envious of these kids because they’re fearless. They are not afraid of losing or missing because they have yet to experience it and all the baggage that goes along with it. All they know is the joy of pocketing balls and they do it with such freedom. They’re free of doubt and regret, and full of confidence and determination.
