Earl Ball Speaks: 1000 Points: Thank you all for the well wishes and congratulatory remarks.
I just caught up with Stan’s blog and the phone has rang off the hook. My email has been full of great remarks and the text messages have been many.
Many of you know how tough it’s been to get that last 3 points. I like to think I am unaffected by pressure; now I know that’s not true. Any hair that wasn’t grey is now. I even thought it might start falling out. Strange how we continue to learn about ourselves even at this age.
CONGRATULATIONS EARL! NOT JUST FOR ACHIEVING 1,000 POINTS!! BUT FOR WHAT YOU HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE SPORT IN YOUR WRITINGS, AND THE MANY OFFICES YOU HAVE HELD!!! Stan McCormack for All Shufflers. 2017 11 21.
