Blowing

Combination of curling and pool

One player shoots pool, his teammate blows on the balls. This may correct the aim, help prevent a scratch, or get the active ball to go behind another ball to deprive the opposing team of a shot.

The balls may have to be slightly lighter than usual for this to work.

       If his teammate blew on his balls, wouldn't he be more likely to miss the shot? (sorry)

       No, but it might make it hard.

       I foresee many players being tragically blinded by their partner's pool cue.

       Hurry! HARD!   

       I've often thought that curling should move into the 21st century and allow the use of vacuum cleaners as well as brushes. Then you could subtly suck the stones in the required direction.

       Blew balls are never much fun.

       Sucking and blowing are both antonyms and synonyms. I wonder if any other words do that.

Best and Worst.
If you conquer or beat someone in a game you can 'best' them and also 'worst' them.

       I'd like to see you run my table's length and save wind to blow balls from the behind side.
