Contact ESPN and say "Thanks" for showing a pool match - 01-05-2014, 03:53 PM

Broadcasters do pay attention to viewer comments, so let's contact ESPN and thank them for showing the women's pool match.

The correct link to use is https://r.espn.go.com/members/contact/tvindex

Yes, you have to register with some contact information, so you'll probably get an promo email or two...but that's a small price to pay for the chance to promote pool.

Everybody talks about promoting pool and getting it on TV. Will you take this one, simple step to make it happen?

wow pool on TV today is like going to the candy store when I was a youngster, couldn't get enough of it. Thanks ESPN and I hope they read my email on helping give billiards a lifeline and getting it back in the mainstream again.
