I was reintroduced to the sport of billiards in 1996 by my now husband of 15 years, John Fargo. At that time I was a single Mom with two teenagers. John was a Firefighter for the City of New London, CT, an active partner of the local pool room, Crown Billiards and also a single Dad. John convinced me I should play 8 Ball for the “other” league as a diversion from my job working with adults with disabilities in a Community Experience Program.
