The Gift Of Mirth

Wednesday, December 13th, 2006

The actor Peter Boyle died today. I never watched Everyone Loves Raymond, but Mr. Boyle is responsible for one of the 5 biggest laughing fits I’ve ever had. I should say that when I start laughing, I pretty much totally lose control. I’ll laugh until I can’t breathe. I’ll laugh until I’m close to throwing…

Here’s How Good I Am At Poker

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006

After watching about 60 hours of poker the last 10 days I decided to actually PLAY a bit tonight. Signed up for Wil Wheaton’s tourney and promptly donked off 1/3 of my stack calling with KQ against AK. Brilliant. I fight back to about par when this hand happens. I have the AK of diamonds…

Take Some Advil and Play Some Poker

Sunday, December 10th, 2006

I’m sure there are bloggers staggering back home from Vegas, you lucky bastards. But for those of you who are already home, or those who didn’t make it out there, I wanted to let yinz know that UB is having the Final Event of their Online Championships and it looks like there’s gonna be a…

Giddyup

Saturday, December 9th, 2006

Although I know about 80% of my readership is in Vegas right now gambooling and drinking and having a gay old time, I thought I’d let everyone else know that tonight’s UB tournament is a HORSE affair, and I know how much everybody likes those mixed-game events. Plus Annie Duke is doing the commentary tonight,…

More Evidence that College Football is FUBAR

Friday, December 8th, 2006

Tonight was the awards ceremony for college football. At least it was the one where they awarded every prize but the Heisman, which is the most overhyped and underimportant thing/event/whatever in all of sports. If the BCS nonsense wasn’t enough to convince you that college football is a parody of a joke of a sham,…

Hermit Mode

Thursday, December 7th, 2006

Got a haircut yesterday. As I’ve said soooo many times, I’ve had some bad haircuts. Really bad. This one didn’t start out too bad. I thought it looked pretty good. Right to the point where she spun me around to thin out the top. I have lots of hair up there. Not any more, though….

Has It Really Been a Year Since Brokeback Mountain Came Out

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006

I’m not at all crushed that I won’t be joining everyone for this year’s WPBT blowout. No, yinz go an have fun without me. Really. I fully expect there to be a large number of Stetson-wearing gentlemen with diminished net worths come Sunday night. Whoever thought to schedule the blogger events year after year with…

The BCS Blah Blah Blah

Sunday, December 3rd, 2006

Oh, how I love the yearly sobfest that surrounds the end of the college football season. Every other sport decides its champion by playing a game. College football decides its champion by having a handful of coaches and sportswriters spend 30 seconds before breakfast filling out a ballot. Oh, and there are computers involved too….

Pure Profit!

Saturday, December 2nd, 2006

I was up until 3AM blogging the first event of the UltimateBet Online Championship–you were following along, right–so how did I spend my afternoon? By playing in a tournament! Hey, all that watching gave me the itch. Finished 27th out of 567 players, earning me a profit…that is too embarrassing to mention here. Three and…
