Re: Math Pick-up Lines

It is Good Friday soon here but I meant after I just mentioned it.

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

Shouldn't I be reading them?

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

I have been asked that question a couple of times. Mostly by players in Vegas who thought they were strong. I always gave them the answer they wanted to hear.

Why do you want to be a pro anyway?

Re: Math Pick-up Lines

Well, I do not think I am strong but I am improving. When you tell people what they expected they do not learn anything new
