Over the years I've met and played with a variety of characters, backers, fun players, hustlers, and others. I'll be telling you up to 3 stories concerning these players and my relation to them from 1961 and Boston Shorty. Stories of some players from my generation, Buddy Hall, St.(i hope) Louie, Louie, TN Tarzan ' Mike Massey', Steve 'The Miz' Mizerak,
Steve 'The Cookie Monster' Cook, Wade 'Billy Johnson' Crane, Billy 'The Kid' 'Banking Billy' Incardona and others.
Then some of today's young champions like Shannon 'The Canon' Dalton, Ralph Eckert(d), Alex Pagulian and two very interesting stories about Ralph Souquet. Some stories about the best backers and stake horses in the world, my world at least.
Everything in all these stories is true... Jimmy Reid Well I'll bet my cues, car, condo on everything being true and take a lie detector test to everything I write as long as someone bets at least $1,000 against me passing it.

NOW GO TO THE FIRST STORY ABOUT WILLIE MOSCONI, IT MIGHT SEEM HARSH TO YOU BUT I'VE PROMISED TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH AND THE NEXT 3 STORIES ABOUT WILLIE ARE MUCH BETTER. WELL AT LEAST 2 OF THEM ARE BETTER GETTING TO KNOW HIM OFF THE FELT. MOST OF THESE STORIES ARE VERY FUNNY IN MY MEMORY BANK.
