Shuffleboard is more cut throat than it appears.

Before these players take a shot, they consult, put chalk on their hands,look at the weather, visualize their stride.

You are the one responsible for propelling your disc down a slick, treacherous court. You live or die by your own hand.

In this game, strength is not needed, but steady nerves, strategy, and touch are critical. Your only uniform is a good pair of tennis shoes, loose fitting clothes and a cap. 

There is no crying here because these are grownups who know the odds, and the score.

The only thing harder than playing shuffleboard here is playing shuffleboard on a cruise ship, with rough waves.

I don’t wouldn’t play shuffleboard against any of these old people, man or woman.

I know sharks when I see them.
