BY EARL BALL: The first person I encountered last week was the MRI technician and it wasn’t long before we were talking about Shuffleboard. He knew nothing about shuffleboard; they don’t have it in the Destin-Ft Walton Beach area. I explained as much as I could as fast as I could, starting with court size and equipment and getting down to how the game is played and how competitive it is. Needless to say I ran out of time and as we were walking to my next appointment he asked me a question.
HERE IS THE QUESTION: If I could give him one tip about the game, what would it be? My mind scrambled, knowing he knew nothing about the game and I said to him “watch the scoreboard, know if you have a chance to win or if you are about to get beat” and I was off to my next stop.
I’ve thought about that a number of times since not knowing if I said the right thing! What do you think, what would you have said?
