Here are some photos of the late, great U.J. Puckett. The pictures were taken by Ed "Redbird" Tarbutton at Top Cats Billiards in San Marcos, Texas, which is just down the road from my hometown in Austin. Puckett was a former national nine-ball champion who called Fort Worth home. He died in 1992, although some folks insist that U.J. Puckett is back.
