Of course I'm s***ting you. That's just a crack I'd tell the marks. That's why I put it in "quotes".

I always like the marks that play my Tub joint that say it's rigged when they can't even get the ball anywhere near the bucket....


"Of course it's rigged buddy, I put stuff in the water here to make you throw a ball like retarded monkey...."


I had some lady say my balloons were under inflated like she seen on the internet....I handed her a balloon and told her to blow it up....well, guess what....then ones I blew up were bigger then the one she blew up....Of course when I use #5 or Super#5s when everyoen else around here uses #7 and only had room for 20-30 balloons on a board theny tend to think mine are under inflated....I get the idiots that say my balloons are smaller....I say yeah but there are 300 of them not 30....all blown by mouth...I hate blowers, especially the big red ones....

In closing, let me say for the record, no game that I ever knew of was ever rigged. You can trust me on that, I've been around



I reckon I will record that for prospeity, by some fluke my scissors will not cut it out.

Yep, too bad you did not know him, say what ya want, he was smart.

Also worked for Jim Roller, Doc Hardin, Megerle, One Eyed Bob Bolin, Floyds, and Johnny Keefe.

Reckon being around them may have made me one of their kind of jag?

Did you understand in any way what I said in the post I made prior to your comment, doubt it, Sixcat (and some others) will. Of course they will play the same game you just did, but I will survive.

Do not make the mistake of thinking I am a fan.

BTW it should have been "were you, or were you not", the word "where" implies a place.

like what a kid throwing a dart and popping a balloon. or a group of teens throwing a ball against a backboard..... what are you talking about see what????????? in my opinion what looks bad is those damn watermellon rims on those long ranges... thats what looks fixed or rig. what ever you want to call it...

I broke into the balloon joint in 1949 for Walter B Cox.I featured a slum build up balloon for 40 years and raised a wife and 3 kids. i worked strong but when they walked away they said thank you and would come back every day.

I Admire old timers like you. The way I was taught was to make them believe in the game and limit any heat.
