Billiards and Bowling Mash-Up...

This has got to be one of the coolest things I've seen in a while...
It's a combination of two popular sports you can do while drinking a beer (Billiards and Bowling)! Question is, "Is there a bar league and where do I sign up...?" The game is called Knokkers and was built by a former semi-pro football player and cage fighter, Steve Wienecke in his backyard in Missouri.
It’s basically played like 8-ball except that you are the cue. You are allowed to move the cue ball (you’ve got to in order to pick it up), but once it’s in your hands you are not allowed to move your feet. At the moment Steve is working on a more portable version of the game and is looking into different options for the 6-pound balls (as they need to be able to stand up to some punishment).
So as of now if you want to play Knokkers, you'll have to make a stop to the back yard of a former cage fighter.... let's hope this catches on, because this looks like a whole 'lotta fun...!
