Go, Ms. Gio!

As some of you may know, our own Ms. Gio will soon be arriving in Mankato, Minnesota for the National Collegiate Billiard Championships. She will begin competition Tuesday evening.

We've used our Foo Energy to great effect in healing people, helping people race, or just cheering people up in general. I think it's about time we used it once again, this time to cheer Ms. Gio on, and stand behind her in her quest.

Ms. Gio, I think I can speak for a lot of people here when I say that we're rooting for you, and that, no matter what happens, we're all very proud of you.

*raises a glass*

Correct me if I'm wrong but there are not many things in this world hotter than a babe playing pool.

Best of luck. I'm sure you won't need it judging by that pic.

I'll dance for you if you lose! For all of our sakes, I hope Cypress is dancing and I am sitting at the bar drinking and tucking ones into his bomber jacket.

I promise not to dance for you if you win! Anyone who's seen me attempt to dance can tell you--that's some serious motivation!

Best of luck Ms. Gio!!

Picture my ugly mug behind whatever ball you want to sink. You'll HAVE to sink it to get my face out of your mind.


When I first read "Go, Ms. Gio", I heard it to the tune of "Go Greased Lightning" in my head, so.....

To the tune of Greased Lightning

Go, Ms. Gio, you're breakin' up the pool ball pile
Go, Ms. Gio, FOO is cheering for you with a smile
Your skills supreme
We'll root and scream
Go, Ms. Gio.............

Watch out for Vincent Lauria, he's a hustler:



Seriously though, good luck. Hope you win. Sounds like you know how to handle a stick.

I can think of one thing hotter: when she's really good at it.
