Special mention to the Filipino pool players representing the Philippine Billiards Team coached by my good friends Ricardo Ancaja, aka Ramon Champion, and Edgardo Asonto, aka Boyet! Our Filipino pool champions finished the 2007 SEA Games with three golds, two silvers, and four bronzes! And I kid you not!
