Poker in the Post-Gazette

Monday, October 23rd, 2006, 11:19 am

I’m quoted in today’s Post-Gazette article about the UIGEA and it’s ramifications. Odd seeing myself referred to as “Mr. Bromberg”. Be curious to see what kind of feedback they get about it, might have to check back with the reporter to see if he hears anything back.

Oh, and this is somewhat unrelated, but what the heck. My last name, “Bromberg”, is fairly rare. There aren’t many of us around. And my first name, “Eugene”, is understandably rare as well. You would think that Googling “gene bromberg” would be a fairly straightforward way to see what mark I (and my father, who has the same name) have left on the ‘Net. You’d think that. Unfortunately there’s a doctor out there named Bromberg who, and this is the funny part, works at the Department of Gene and Cell Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital. You see where the problem lies?

Actually, I should feel bad for him. He’s probably out there Googling “gene bromberg” to see how his latest research on peripheral tolerance induction to alloantigen in the mature immune system is being received, and instead he finds links to some jackass poker blogger. Who knew the Internet has a pathetic sense of humor?

    nh, Mr. Bromberg.

    Why do I find it more humorous you were interviewed by a guy named Chico?

    Hey at least it’s not as bad as having the same name as that poor guy in Iraq that was beheaded, Eugene Armstrong. Then having new reporters show up at your house thinking it’s his house…
