Pool-playing seniors get the heave-ho in Fargo

There’s trouble in Fargo. I said trouble. Trouble with a capital “T”. And that rhymes with “P” and that stands for pool.

It seems the senior citizens are unhappy that when the senior center moves to a new location, the pool tables won’t be coming along, the Fargo Forum reports today.

Apparently, the racket from the balls upset some of the elderly, so what was supposed to be the pool room is going to be a meeting room instead.

“That, again, is what elderly people do, they complain,” pool fan Gene Rich tells the paper.

“They want to have an atmosphere where they can converse and it’s quiet,” Park District Executive Director Roger Gress of the complainers who signed a petition to eliminate the first step on the road to the depth of degradation.
