Hanging Out With Celebs

Sunday, February 12th, 2006

I was cleaning junk off my bookshelves when I came across a photo taken about a year ago. I don’t usually brag about my close personal relationships with the high and mighty, but what the hell: That’s me chilin’ with Morris the Cat. Morris is the one on the left. So what’s MTC like? A…

Public Service Announcement–I’m Serious

Saturday, February 11th, 2006

StudioGlyphic, whom I’ve been reading for a long time and who I watched win the WPBT event in December, has a friend in need and the blogger community is rallying around to spread the word asking for help. His friend’s girlfriend is very ill and needs a bone marrow transplant, and finding a donor will…

Is It My TV, Or…

Friday, February 10th, 2006

Does Jim Lampley’s hair look like fiber-optic cable? I mean, my hair has had that extruded fiberglass look, but his hair…it’s like it’s lit from WITHIN. And his suit, it looks like it’s made of some kind of polymer. Has there ever been a more anonymous Olympics than the Tornio Games? I’m totally in the…

Super Bowl No More

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006

As promised, I will not write about the Super Bowl after this day. Probably. When he was in Vegas back in May my friend Mark put a bet down on the Steelers to win the Super Bowl. The money he just won paid for his seat in Ford Field…through the first quarter. I’m interested to…

How Not to Have a Parade

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006

Some free advice–if your hometown is about to play for a championship, urge the city leaders to plan the victory parade well in advance. The local media made serious hay about Seattle planning their parade before the game was played, and this was seen as an act of monumental hubris. In fact, this was an…

Give A Little Back to Detroit

Tuesday, February 7th, 2006

As part of his cynical, relentless quest to win the Nobel Peace Prize, Dr. Pauly is asking the poker blogging community to help out our good friend the Boy Genius, who just had surgery and who hasn’t been able to eat pizza or wings or anything good for weeks because of his gasterointestinal (well, mostly…

Commercials, Super Bowl and Full Tilt

Tuesday, February 7th, 2006

Some actual semi-poker content here. I’m watching the Poker Superstars show that was televised on NBC before the Super Bowl, and I have to say that the Full Tilt commercials are pretty goddam funny. I was somehow distracted during the Lindgren-Matusow commercial featuring the Hammer, but it looked pretty funny. The Lederer-Seidel commercial was pretty…

Mandalay Bay Magic

Monday, February 6th, 2006

It all started in Vegas. That’s where the Steeler Super Bowl run started, standing and watching the games in the Mandalay Bay sports book during the blogger get-together in December. I can’t believe it was that long ago that the win streak started. We HAD to beat Chicago that day, and with a three-game losing…

Quote of the Year

Monday, February 6th, 2006

I’m sorry, I’m probably going to be a pest the next few days, if you aren’t interested in Steeler gloryfing you may want to stay away the next few days. How about this–I promise not to write anything Steeler related after Wednesday. I’m going to the parade tomorrow, I’ll write something about that and be…

Thumbs Up

Monday, February 6th, 2006

I’m totally exhausted. I don’t know that it’s hit me yet. Give Seattle credit, they kicked our butts the first quarter but could only get 3 points. This time we got the calls, although the Jackson pushoff was just that, and the Locklear did have his arm wrapped around Haggans. I thought Big Ben broke…
