Just a quick reminder to everyone that ESPN will be broadcasting the 2009 WPBA San Diego Classic this Sunday from 1PM to 4PM EST. This is a great opportunity to see some first rate pool as our good friend (and fellow Debbie supporter) Monica Webb put on quite a show. In her match against Ga Young Kim, Monica makes a couple of completely sick jump shots that simply must be seen.
Here’s the schedule:
WPBA San Diego Classic Semifinal #1 1PM EST ESPN
WPBA San Diego Classic Semifinal #2 2PM EST ESPN
WPBA San Diego Classic Semifinal #3 3PM EST ESPN
Our girl Debbie Schjodt had a tough run at the US Open, but that didn’t stop her and Frank from having a good time and representing for PoolDawg! In addition to playing in the tournament, Debbie spent hours playing challenge matches and doing the meet and greet with fans which is why we so dig our Tequila Schjodt.
After the US Open, Frank, Debbie and the ladies of the WPBA decided to let loose at a local karaoke bar. If you check out Frank’s Myspace Page and go to his photo album, you’ll find tons of pictures of Frank hanging out with Sarah Rousey, Ga Young Kim, Xiao Ting Pan, Jasmin Ouschan, Monica Webb, US Open Champ Kelly Fisher and tons of other women from the tour.
Speaking of Frank’s MySpace page, Frank is really on the prowl for friends and he’s not above bribing people. Just for the MySpacers, we’re going to start doing a monthly giveaway. Every month, Frank will be choosing someone to get a $25 gift certificate. If you have a MySpace page and you want in on the action, just send a friend request.
Last thing, I wanted to thank everyone on the WPBA tour who took the time to take all those pictures with Frank. You gals are the best!!
