    Funnily enough, after that famous victory, schoolkids across the land would put their glasses on upside-down in hope that it would improve their cue skills. :rommie:



    They're prescription billiard glasses - with an enlarged lens to let Dennis look upwards when crouched down, and see the path of the cue and the large snooker table before him.

    :lol: It does make sense though, playing pool/snooker with glasses is a little annoying for exactly this reason - you often look "over" the glasses. I guess these days the pros all were contacts if they are shortsighted.

    What's especially interesting to me about this clip is, that it seems to me that they played somewhat more aggressive back then. If this were today I think they'd push the black ball back and forth between the bottom and top cushion until one of them makes a mistake instead of taking such risky shots as Davis and Taylor did there, especially in such an important frame.

    On any list of the biggest sports celebration screwups, you know that Leon Lett's in Super Bowl XXVII HAS to be on there. But as atrocious as his goof was, there was another Dallas player who could have still saved the day. #97 - if you had turned your head and seen Don Beebe coming up you could have blocked Beebe and Leon would have scored. :p

    Charges have been flying around about just how Cal was able to slow down the Oregon offense last weekend....

    I always take such things with a grain of salt, but that video looks fairly damning....

    On the subject of whether Michael Dyer was down on his game changing run in at the end of the BCS Championship game:
