Made Sense To Me: Japanese Pool Player Interview

February 24, 2017


This is a video of an interview with Japanese pool player Naoyuki Oi during a competition. He's a real showman. If he's half as good at pool as he is at giving interviews he's got that trophy with the little gold pool player on top in the bag. Me? I've never won a trophy, but I buy every single one I come across at the thrift store. I have them all on display in my living room to impress people who come over. Mostly my parents. "Honey I didn't know you played chess!" Oh totally mom, I'm great at it. "It says you won the Nebraska State Tournament in 1974." Yeah I'm a time traveler too.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to SL, who agrees this guy should forget about playing pool and start teaching hot to give interviews.

    You didn't even win you tied. How can you construct a chess tournament that ends in a tie...?

    "The 10th Scholastic in 1974...with Central easily winning the team title. John Milton and Mark Seitzer tied for 1st. Thane Plambeck of Kearney and Will Pressnall of Washington won the Elementary section and Mark Kitchin won the Junior High. Rich Chess took the Open."

    I love to see these guys giving the interviewers exactly the level of respect they deserve. :-D
