I met Mike Massey at the Rivera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mike was doing his promotion thing and I was one of the spectators enjoying the show. When Mike took a short break, I introduced myself and gave him a copy of my pool book. Mike Smiled and returned the favor by giving me a copy of his trick shot book. When Mike picked up his cue-stick again, I continued to be captivated by his world class pool skills and outgoing personality. Like the great performers of the past, Mike has the rare gift of captivating a crowd and holding them in the palm of his hand. With his massive stroke and Grand Canyon smile, I found myself blinking my eyes because the seemingly impossible has suddenly become a reality. Mike is as humble as he is talented and that makes him very, very special. Oh yea, his book on trick shots is a damned good pool book too.
