Winter Classic

Alright which one of you donkeys got me sick? I don't remember partaking in any peace offerings and I surely didn't kiss anyone on the lips so it must have been passed through the cards. Oh wait, wasn't it Waffles not only hacking all over the cards but also on our gratitious host April at the first table in Blogger MTT? Go Figure.

I had a great time hangin' with all of you this past weekend, but as usual I didn't get to talk with everybody I wanted to. I also didn't get to do the drunken all-night (-EV) action at the host casino. I'm not going to let that happen next time because I'm going to get a room so I can in the center of all the action. Between playing too much poker and having to drive home "off-the-strip" I really didn't get to see the true blogger experience.

Next time I'm going to make a point of playing Pai Gow while I'm nodding off into my cards and having a drink at the random Hooker Bar with the crew that stayed up all-night before getting two hours of sleep prior to the start of the tournament, then firing straight through the night again knocking back the cocktails and shots getting to know the hard cores. Yup that's exactly what I'm going to do.

I did get to mingle at the Geisha Bar for a few hours on Thursday night but Friday I spent 14 hours playing $2/5 at the MGM getting unstuck from $850. Taking nearly a $400 profit was large coming from that far down as was playing for a few hours with Smokkee, Lucko and Fuel.

I really like the UNDER in the Giants-Eagles game this weekend. I got my money in with the number at 44. As they say in Chicago bet early and bet often.

Speaking of Chicago, those Bears are as overrated as any team in recent memory. Thankfully the NFC is so damn weak that it's quite possible you may go to the Super Bowl provided Rex the Wonder Dog doesn't run the ship aground. If thats the case give me the AFC minus the points all day baby.

The Big Game is on break until January. I'm strongly considering going to a once a month format with the hope we can organize some Token SnGs for entry. The goal is 30 players which gives us a $2K prize pool so hopefully we can work on getting the word out there.

BTW Chilly Spanish Lake is I-270 and Bellefontaine Rd. Way north man, probably off the map to you South Siders. I went to the football powerhouse Hazelwood East I'm sure you've heard of them.

Iggy we owe each other a drink or two or ten. Pick a city, I say Vegas, and let's do it before the Summer Classic.

I'm going to make a play on the OVER of tonites San Francisco-Seatlle game.

To my old friends, my newly made friends, and my yet to be friends, I had a great time last weekend and I look forward to doing that twice a year forever. Stay profitable.

Thats an interesting bet on Eagles/Giants.. Why did you pick that one? The 44-points is pretty high but both teams have been averaging at least 20 points a game all season.. so it looks like 44 is gonna be close.. at least it will be an exciting bet.

Also last time the two met it was over 54 points.. How doth you choose these things?

Good hanging with you and I surely should have consulted with you on my Sunday picks as I went oh-for-three in the late games.

Funny how all of us who were seated with Waffles end up sick, huh? That man is a menace!!

Was great seeing you, hopefully next time out we'll get a chance to really hang out.
