It's a new year!

Wow. So here we are. A new year! What's different? Well, so many things. I have a fantastic new website that I'm very proud of. I was smart enough to get Jessica Kim to be my project manager and on her suggestion, Owen Mundy to design it. Wow. Better than I could have wished for. And it will continue to get better.
I have my old coach Bob Carman back. He and I are going to give it one final real effort at being number one again. What's it going to take? Well, I've never really lacked in knowledge, or heart, but having cut back on my practicing dramatically over the last 6 years has taken it's toll. By that, I mean that all my weaknesses become glaringly obvious when my confidence is not there to hide them with great shotmaking ability. My stroke has always been fine, but with the talent so strong these days....if I want to be number one, it's got to get a whole lot better. And with that, my discipline on and off the table. I have this terrible tendency to speed up as I play better. Eventually, I trip over myself with careless errors. As I've practiced less, i picked up all these bad habits, like dropping my elbow, jumping up on a tough shot instead of staying down, tightening my grip and punching a ball in instead of stroking it in. Blaah, blaah, blaah. I just really need to give it an entire overhaul.
I have new sponsors, Liquid Wick. We plan to design a Widow Maker line of cues. I'm very excited about the idea.
I have signed a deal with Bass Pro Shops so look out for promotional efforts on their behalf. I resigned with for my pool game, I love that game. You really should check it out. I have an online tournament pretty often where you can challenge me personally. And on that actually have a shot to beat me...hehehe.
I'll be coming out in the next Rocawear ad campaign. What a great experience and opportunity. As they are ready, we'll update you.
Lastly, I've signed a nice contract with ESPN to do more announcing,etc. Fun fun fun. I really do want more children, I want to have more Black Widow Experience Clinics, and I want to open Black Widow Billiard Parlors, but for this year, my first focus will be to get back to number one!
Thanks for checking in. I'll be writing more often! Jeanette

Hi Jeanette, I'm posting in behalf of my 11 year old daughter, may I ask where she could buy gloves like yours? She admires you very much & learned pool, playing your Virtual Pool Billiard software at home.
Kindly see her play -

Good Luck on your 2008 US Open Tour.
