U.S. President Obama shoots pool during stop in a bar in Denver

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who considers himself a pretty fair pool player, TELLS THE STORY of how he lost to Barack Obama one day last week:

Mr. Hickenlooper said he was even thinking of slacking off on the theory it might not be a bad idea to let the president win.

“And then, literally before my eyes he ran like four balls,” the governor said.

Mr. Obama won. So they played another game. Double or nothing. $20 in the pot.

And Mr. Obama won again.

“I was playing as hard as I could possibly play,” Mr. Hickenlooper said.

And yet …

“I still had four balls on the table when he nailed the eight ball.”

“He was making long shots with a difficult angle. I didn’t know people in Hawaii played that much pool. Evidently they do.”

“The man is a shark.”
