Dream a Little Dream

Tuesday, January 18th, 2005

Has this ever happened to you? You’re sitting in your cube/office, morosely stirring creamer into a hot cup of coffee. Some perky bastard peeks his head in and says, “Hey, Bob (let’s assume your name’s Bob), you don’t look so good.” And you mumble, “I didn’t get much sleep last night,” and as the jackass…

Peyton Manning– the NFL’s Napoleon Bonaparte

Monday, January 17th, 2005

Even with the score 6-3 at halftime you knew the Pats-Colts game was over. Because we’d seen this all before. The Colts fast-break offense cannot thrive on grass in cold weather, and the Patriots were able to disrupt Manning’s timing by three-quarters-of-a-smidge and render him a spent force. There may be no QB in NFL…

Some Random "Tilt" Thoughts

Sunday, January 16th, 2005

No sense in writing a whole review of the Tilt premiere, as its been done elsewhere and I’m a day late and a penny short. But after watching last night I do have some observations: As I watched last night I noticed 3 big dissimilarities between watching a dark, gritty drama on ESPN as opposed…

Sorry, Pauly

Saturday, January 15th, 2005

Glad I didn’t check my email until the Steelers had commited 3 acts of football seppuku, as Pauly offered a wager on the Jets-Steelers game. Nice to see the Steelers giving up touchdowns galore on ridiculous plays like they did against NE in the title game a few years ago. Think I’ll go puke and…

Here We Go Stillers, Here We Go

Saturday, January 15th, 2005

I’m as loyal a Steeler fan as you’ll find in the ‘Burgh, but I would rather they go 0-16 than listen to the absolutely HORRIBLE Steeler fight song they used to play all the time on WDVE when they were in the playoffs. So far I’ve been lucky enough to miss it entirely, and I’ll…

In For a Quicky

Friday, January 14th, 2005

I planned on writing a review of “Tilt”, but I ended up hanging out at the bar until 1AM arguing over our volleyball team’s tactics. So I didn’t see “Tilt”, as I thought I’d be home by midnight and could tape it and watch it tonight. Then again, gee whiz, you think maybe ESPN will…

Whaddya Think?

Thursday, January 13th, 2005

Well, I said I wanted a new look for the blog, and here it is. I’ll be doing some tweaking over the next day or so, and of course adding to my blogroll and all that sorta stuff. I love this look, I wanted a 3 column blog, I like the smaller fonts, the black…

One of Those Surreal Days

Tuesday, January 11th, 2005

I wasn’t going to write about this, but it has a bit of a poker punchline so what the hell. Woke up this morning not feeling so hot. Upset stomach, no big deal. I mentioned to my wife that I hadn’t taken a sick day since last April, when I ended up in the hospital…

An Extremely Short Post

Tuesday, January 11th, 2005

Before we get into my pathetic whining, we must send out huge congratulations to Hank, who has been hired by the obviously wise folks at Full Tilt Poker. It seems like huge news in the pokerblogger community comes nearly every day. Unfortunately, the post that follows does not fit in that category. Let’s not beat…

Don’t Panic

Thursday, January 6th, 2005

I’m sick of this template so I’m testing a few of the other ones Blogger offers to see if I like any of them any better. Brainiac that I am I forgot to copy and save my previous template, so when I started dicking around with the other ones I lost all my links and…
