The Story of Sneaky Pete?

On July 22, 2008, in Billiards Products, by Michael Feiman

If you got our email earlier today, it had some information on the Sneaky Pete, but was missing one vital piece of information – Just Who Is Sneaky Pete??

As I’ve said before, we’ve got the best customers in the business.  A few hours after sending the email out, one of our customers sent me the story of Peter Anthony Crisafi, otherwise known as Sneaky Pete.

“Peter Anthony Crisafi or sneaky pete was born in 1919 in New york and was a billiard player. He traveled around playing for money. He did this because he was no good at playing cards and he was to lazy to work hard. He stole his favorite billiard cue from Flambonis in New York and had it made into two pieces that screwed together so he could take it with him.”

Now I couldn’t find this reference anywhere else so I’m taking it on faith, but it makes a hell of a good story.  Anyone else know this story?  Leave a comment and let me know.
