Even if you don’t play billiards you have no doubt heard the phrase “behind the eight ball”. But what does that actually mean? This phrase did, indeed, come from playing billiards and it describes being stuck in a difficult situation. This is true in billiards, as when the 8 ball is sunk prematurely the player faces a penalty, and in some variations, loses the game.
Speaking of 8 Balls, our Break! Pool Ball Wall Decor set has one. It would look great on your wall!
