For My Husband...

Two-year-old Keith O'Dell Jr. from upstate New York has pool shooting videos posted on Youtube, his own website and is the youngest member of the American Pool Association (the governing body of amateur pool). The son of pool-playing parents, "Keithy" started playing pool on a child-size table, but has since moved up to a regulation table.

He even traveled to Las Vegas last August where he performed an exhibition at the APA’s National Championships!

Not to boast but...my husband is a phenomenally talented pool player and he, along with his team, won their way through the regular season and the cities to earn themselves a spot in the APA National Championships last summer. I was the lucky one that got to tag along for the festivities.


Now honeyman, I don't mean to pressure you but...the cities are coming up next month, don't you think it would be pretty cool if you guys won again so we could go back to Vegas this year and watch the little guy do his thing? Again, no pressure...(maybe a little).

The good news is we can all watch the little guy sink some balls by watching this (click on his little face below) and if that's not enough for you go to his website to see more.

Awesome! We used to have a pool table in our basement (it came with the house) and I was surprised a how much I liked it, I was NOT however good. Thank you so much for the kind comments about my photo shoot! It really made my day, and FYI those images are actually public domain... ;)

He is so cute! What a little pool prodigy!

I can't play worth a lick. For me his playing is a good reason to get out of the house, have a drink (or 4) and watch him play. It's exciting to watch when you're invested in the outcome.

I can't believe that little pool shark is 2! My son is 18 months and he can't do shit!

Zakary- your son is so ridiculously beyond cute he doesn't NEED to do anything.
