The anticipation peaks and the first day unfolds. We spoke with Euro team members Karl Boyes and Nick Van Den Berg, half way thru today’s matches. And at the conclusion of the day, Team USA member Sky Woodward spoke with us about his feelings on today’s performance. Mosconi Cup founder Barry Hearn was of course present and accounted for as well so we also took a few minutes with him to relish the launch of this memorable event.
Show Features: Barry Hearn, Sky Woodward, Karl Boyes, Nick Van Den Berg, David “Mr. Bond”
Is the pool and billiard industry of America in disarray? Is the victory of Europe over USA in the 20th Annual Mosconi Cup Tournament a testament to the popular attitude towards pool in general? This week, and for the next several weeks we’ll be discussing the fractured state of pool and billiards in the U.S. and what the future may possibly hold for one of our country’s oldest and most popular pastimes.
This week’s sneak-preview episode features: Team Europe coach Johan Ruysink, Mosconi Cup founder Barry Hearn, David “Mr. Bond”, Sal Butera, Mark Cantrill, Alison Fischer.
