Females in the Same City

A good friend of mine and I sometimes play at the same pool room, but hardly ever AT THE SAME TIME.

She goes to this pool room more than I do.

About 4 times this has happened now to her, just in the past year with different people.

"Hey, you play pretty good."

"Thank you," she replies nicely.

Then they start it... the cat fight, lol.

"I know another female player that plays well. "


"Yea, you should play her - that would be a great match up!"

In other words, the guys want to see who is better.

I've actually seen and heard this my WHOLE life in the pool room.

  • How would you play her?
  • Are you better than her?
  • How would you match up?
  • Who's better you or her?
  • You should play her!

The difference in these recent, NEW scenarios are, these guys have no idea how good of friends Courtney and I are!!

They continue, "Yea, you two should really play.  She plays good, too!"

"What does she look like?"

"Blonde curly hair, I forget her name, starts with an M."

"Yea I know her - she's MY TEAMMATE and GOOD friend."

But they don't care what she just said.

"So, you two should play each other!"

"No, no, you don't understand... we wont play each other.  We are good friends!"



We already know how we play.  We don't need to play each other for others.  We are on the same team, practice together, been at State and Nationals.  Come on people!

Like good female pool players don't know each other in the same city?

This is one of my pet peeves....everywhere I go I get should play this girl or that you think you could beat "fill in the blank but always a girl".....why do people like to set up rivalries amongst the female players? You never hear "you play good for a guy but can you beat "fill in the blank of another guy player"? It's so old....gender shouldn't even matter in pool imo....I play in womens tournaments and mens tournaments and honestly I welcome the day when it's just tournaments and not separate events.
