Coming soon–why the NFL sucks

Sunday, April 25th, 2004

As Iggy would say, an uber post about our trip to NYC is in the works and will be posted as soon as I get around to writing the damn thing. Hopefully today or tomorrow. But before I tell the tale of my trip to the NFL Draft, let me say first that the death…

Why Communism is the greatest economic system

Thursday, April 22nd, 2004

That got your attention, didn’t it? Now you think I’m some pinko-subversive-Berkeley-treehugging-Trotskyite-unpatriotic slimeball. Nothing like praising Karl Marx to get your typical American all hot and bothered. Maybe you’re thanking the heavens that I suspended my Presidential campaign after all. No, dear readers. I’m not a Communist. I think you only need to look at…

Wednesday, April 14th, 2004

With swimsuit season just a few weeks away, it finally hit me that now might be a good time to start maybe thinking about losing some weight. I’d like to lose, oh, 50 pounds, but it’s a bit hard to do that when you spend pretty about 23 hours per day sitting and/or lying down….

Well, the food was good, anyway

Sunday, April 4th, 2004

When you play in a poker tournament and the best thing you can say is that the buffet was good, you know you’ve had a tough day. As I did yesterday. I’d like to say I played brilliantly and got knocked out on a terrible beat, but only half of that is true. I did…

Just call me Andy Glazer

Thursday, April 1st, 2004

This Saturday I’ll probably be playing in my first live no-limit tournament. They have these charity no-limit tournaments here in the ‘Burgh (tho, I believe, its not a criminal scam like the ones in Cleveland Iggy posted an article on awhile back). The buy-in is $100, which I’ll take from my massive bankroll and try…
