‘Almost Famous’ (The Pool Scene) -- by Patrick Sampey

Updated: Aug 29, 2021

Thursday, Aug 26, 2021 -- Greetings fellow pool players! Patrick Sampey here, and like the movie ‘Almost Famous’ where the writer follows the band, writing for Rolling Stone, I feel almost famous in pool. And it’s a thrill for me, just like it was for the young kid in the movie at 15, excited to cover his heroes of rock and roll -- mine being the Gods of pool in this case, you know, Strickland, Varner, Hall, Mosconi, Reyes, Van Boening, Filler, and so forth.
