Simply Smashing

Y’know, it’s bad enough when you take a bad beat to lose a hand. It’s even worse when a guy makes runner-runner quads to beat your full house…AND wins a high-hand jackpot as well. That’s just rubbing salt in the wound. And if you’re wondering how last night went for me, you just found out.

Then I get home and learn that Phil Hellmuth was tooling around the Rio parking lot in UB-themed stock car and smashed into a concrete light fixture. You can watch the accident here, he really clobbered it. The idea was for Phil to drive up in the race car, walk through the Rio in full racing gear, and take his seat amid much hoopla. Instead we’re getting attention of a different sort. But as they say, any publicity is good publicity. Too bad about the car, which looks pretty freakin’ neat (aside from the crushed fender):

    I must have been lost under a rock, ’cause I didn’t realize you had moved. That’s been resolved. Congrats on the nice looking blog…
