Number One in the Hood, G

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

An example of guerrilla marketing at it’s finest. Yes, I’m a huge fan of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. And I don’t even smoke pot.

Nice Abomination Guys

Monday, January 29th, 2007

Paul Lukas writes the “Uni Watch” column for ESPN’s Page 2, and you might not know that he has a Uni Watch blog as well. Great stuff for the sports fanatic who also enjoys the world of fashion. Sports fashion, anyway. I heard the Pirates had introduced some new uniforms at PirateFest this week but…

Third Ain’t Bad, No It Isn’t

Monday, January 29th, 2007

Took 3rd in the first WPBT event of the year. Lost to eventual winner rspr41 when I flopped the nut flush draw, hit a pair on the turn, but couldn’t beat the king he flopped. Of course, I had no business getting that deep. I was next-to-last in chips when I went on a tear…

Angle-Shot at Roshambo

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

After a long day’s work a big gang headed to a local pub for beers. We were also there to celebrate a friend’s birthday, and to see the latest affirmation of Sidney Crosby’s genius. I was beat. Just wanted to hang, have a few, relax. In the middle of my third Yuengling a trio of…

What’s a Mook?

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

Haven’t watched Mean Streets in awhile. That’s one of my favorite lines from it. “I’m a mook…what’s a mook?” Finished 19th in the Mookie tonight as DuggleBogey knocked me out. That’s twice in two weeks. I chipped up early thanks to hitting a pair and the nut flush draw and after pushing I rivered poor…

Listen to the Man

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

I’ve nearly given up reading Bill Rini’s blog because everything he writes these days is SO depressing. Online poker’s in deep trouble, people don’t know how bad things are, blah blah blah. What a drag. Unfortunately, everything he’s said on the subject so far seems to be spot-on correct. Terrifyingly so. I don’t have Bill’s…

Late Payment is Not an Option

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

Kinda forgot about this, hard as that might be to believe. About a week ago I had to fax something out and walked to my apartment complex’s rental office. Beautiful day, not too cold, blue skies. The rental office has several conference rooms, a small gym, a big living room with fireplace and kitchen, and…

We Are! Penn State!!

Sunday, January 21st, 2007

How the hell did I miss that Ryan Daut, who won the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure down at Atlantis, is a Nittany Lion? I read Otis’s every word, but I don’t recall that “Penn State” or “Nittany Lion” or “Happy Valley” were among them! For shame! $1.5 million will buy many cases of Rolling Rock ponies…

Welcome, Mike Tomlin

Sunday, January 21st, 2007

May I be among the first to welcome Mike Tomlin, the Steelers new head coach, to Pittsburgh. I didn’t believe it when CNN reported his hiring, as I wouldn’t trust CNN’s sports staff to sit the right way on a toilet seat. But when Chris Mortensen reported it, I believed. I wanted Ken Whisenhunt and/or…

An Afternoon of WTF?

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

I’m watching the end of the Texas Tech-Kansas game. There’s been a big ice storm down Lubbock way. Good game, KU making a big comeback. Tech gets an offensive rebound and scores with a blocking foul to boot. And then Fran Fraschilla, commenting on Kansas’s lack of movement after the rebound, says, “Kansas was like…
