The Things You Learn About The Game You Love

It’s always fun reading interesting facts about the game you love. Recently I ran across this article about the Fun Facts About Billiards, which obviously is my favorite game. There are some really great tid bits here I didn’t even know. For example did you know that John Quincy Adams was the 1st president to put a pool table into the white house? and on a lighter note he also owned a pet alligator…the crazy things a president will own in a white house. Another fact you might not know about pool is that in 1765 A.D. the 1st billiard room was built in England. They played One-pocket a game which only involved shockingly one pocket and 4 balls.
