Sergio Backs In

Did anybody watch the Players on Sunday? Of course I have to eat shit since Sergio the donkey won but come on did he win it or did Goydos lose it? Goydos had three bogeys in the last five holes and he had quite an easy chip from right in front of the 18th green that he chunked forcing a playoff. Don't get me wrong Sergio played very well but Goydos blew a three shot lead with five to play so don't tell me Sergio went out and won this thing.

How dumb are those Survivor players? To let that skank Pavriti win is downright embarrassing. It did shed some light into how stupid men are though. Guys will fall for any shit that comes out of a woman's mouth just because she has a vag and every guy deep down thinks he's gonna get some. Here is a word of advice guys. Act uninterested sometimes. Play hard to get occasional. Don't act like some pussy whipped fool, stalker, insecure donkey. It works like a charm!

A democratic house and a democratic senate sucks huh. Wait until that preacher gets in office and it will be the Carter administration all over again. Broke dick economy, taxes out the ass, fuck we'll turn into some socialistic Pseudo-euro donk country. I can't wait. The only good thing about Carter was one of the greatest Presidents in this country's history took over. Save our country folks, vote Republican!

About those screen shots. I've discussed those at length with a couple trusted buddies and they were both a matter of bad luck, bad timing and yes a couple mistakes on my part. I'm working hard on my end game for both satellites and MTTs and I'm convinced you can't be a nit at the end of these things. Folding into the money in satellites doesn't always work, and waiting on big hands in MTTs just to shove A rag into some higher A rag doesn't work either. If you look around, those who actually WIN MTTs, and I'm talking about big field events and not 83 player bloggaments, play highly aggressive at the end and those who get close on occasion but don't win are way too tight. No need to list names we all know who is who.

I've been having fun playing a lot more HU cash and MTTs lately. HU is such an interesting game and although there is luck involved with being on the right side of the cooler, it seems better players will win and win big over time. My strong suit in poker is reading people and it really seems there are not a lot of real tricky players out there in the lower limits I've started playing. I'm sure that will change as I move up but for now they seem to be highly profitable.

Also there is a fun $22HU MTT on FTP that starts nightly at 23:45. That might be a little to late for all you east coast snobs but it is an interesting event. They've been getting 256 nightly and are getting real close to making it to 512 which will make for an even fatter prize pool. Also, don't forget this Sunday BBT Badass Loretta is hosting a $26 HU MTT at 21:00 also on FTP. Sign up early since they will only allow powers of 2 to enter so if you wait until the last minute you may get cut. The max allowed is 64 and it would be great to see this thing fill every week.

A quarter of the season done in baseball and plenty of surprises out there. I wonder if we are seeing the fallout from HGH and juice as there seems to be big dropoffs in offensive numbers. That whole Padre team must have had juice parties as they are hitting a not so stellar .233 as a team. Has Toronto scored more than one run in a game in the past week? Also there are eight entire teams hitting .250 or below which is just bad. It is fun watching all those kids for the Marlins mashing balls all over the park.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend and made a ton of money.

I was wondering the same thing re: juice, only in regards to Cleveland.

As for the Jays - if Gibbons knew what the sign for "bunt" was, they might actually be able to advance a runner. They can't hit worth a damn with runners in scoring position.

I expect a coaching change by the start of June (look for Ernie Whitt to take over), and Ricciardi to be gone at the end of the season if things don't improve.

Travis Hafner -- gotta be something there, right?

The bunt is the worst play in baseball.

I don't think a coaching change in Toronto is going to matter one iota -- the Jays need to be healthy and as constructed their offense is subpar.

I could have told you that Goydos would choke on Sunday. It was just a given. Especially with Sergio hitting the ball so well. Goydos was lucky to be there in the first place. Did you see how many putts he drained in the first three days?

Ball striking and greens hit are the reasons why Sergio won and Goydos lost. It just caught up with him.

I was really pulling for PG. I like his witty humor and relaxed nature. Doesn't sell out to sponsors and wears what he wants. Even if it is for supersticious reasons.

Eric is a retard. Nuff said.

I just watched the end of the Players, but I was pulling for Goydos. I think it's all good for him anyways (card guaranteed for another year, etc).

I was stunned that Parvati won. Amanda was totally a moron, though, when Cirie asked why she picked Parvati and not Cirie. The answer is simple: "Cirie, I didn't think I could beat you with the jury. I feel like Parvati was brutal to many people, so I had to take her. I would have expected you to do the same if you'd won immunity as well."

My 13 year old daughter cackled with glee when ice cream boy gave up immunity necklace.

Amanda gives a flattering answer to Cherie about "Decision is not about deserving million it is about who I am more likely to beat HU" and we learn how they settle a 4-4 vote.

Jimmy Carter had his flaws as President mainly that he had the engineer's mindset that can lead to getting trapped in details but he did have an understanding that we needed to eliminate dependence on oil for energy. Excerpt below is from Jimmy Carter's speech on energy July 16, 1979:

"What I have to say to you now about energy is simple and vitally important.

Point one: I am tonight setting a clear goal for the energy policy of the United States. Beginning this moment, this nation will never use more foreign oil than we did in 1977 -- never. From now on, every new addition to our demand for energy will be met from our own production and our own conservation. The generation-long growth in our dependence on foreign oil will be stopped dead in its tracks right now and then reversed as we move through the 1980s, for I am tonight setting the further goal of cutting our dependence on foreign oil by one-half by the end of the next decade -- a saving of over 4-1/2 million barrels of imported oil per day.

Point two: To ensure that we meet these targets, I will use my presidential authority to set import quotas. I'm announcing tonight that for 1979 and 1980, I will forbid the entry into this country of one drop of foreign oil more than these goals allow. These quotas will ensure a reduction in imports even below the ambitious levels we set at the recent Tokyo summit.

Point three: To give us energy security, I am asking for the most massive peacetime commitment of funds and resources in our nation's history to develop America's own alternative sources of fuel -- from coal, from oil shale, from plant products for gasohol, from unconventional gas, from the sun.

I propose the creation of an energy security corporation to lead this effort to replace 2-1/2 million barrels of imported oil per day by 1990. The corporation I will issue up to $5 billion in energy bonds, and I especially want them to be in small denominations so that average Americans can invest directly in America's energy security.

Just as a similar synthetic rubber corporation helped us win World War II, so will we mobilize American determination and ability to win the energy war. Moreover, I will soon submit legislation to Congress calling for the creation of this nation's first solar bank, which will help us achieve the crucial goal of 20 percent of our energy coming from solar power by the year 2000.

These efforts will cost money, a lot of money, and that is why Congress must enact the windfall profits tax without delay. It will be money well spent. Unlike the billions of dollars that we ship to foreign countries to pay for foreign oil, these funds will be paid by Americans to Americans. These funds will go to fight, not to increase, inflation and unemployment.

Point four: I'm asking Congress to mandate, to require as a matter of law, that our nation's utility companies cut their massive use of oil by 50 percent within the next decade and switch to other fuels, especially coal, our most abundant energy source.

Point five: To make absolutely certain that nothing stands in the way of achieving these goals, I will urge Congress to create an energy mobilization board which, like the War Production Board in World War II, will have the responsibility and authority to cut through the red tape, the delays, and the endless roadblocks to completing key energy projects.

We will protect our environment. But when this nation critically needs a refinery or a pipeline, we will build it.

Point six: I'm proposing a bold conservation program to involve every state, county, and city and every average American in our energy battle. This effort will permit you to build conservation into your homes and your lives at a cost you can afford.

I ask Congress to give me authority for mandatory conservation and for standby gasoline rationing. To further conserve energy, I'm proposing tonight an extra $10 billion over the next decade to strengthen our public transportation systems. And I'm asking you for your good and for your nation's security to take no unnecessary trips, to use carpools or public transportation whenever you can, to park your car one extra day per week, to obey the speed limit, and to set your thermostats to save fuel. Every act of energy conservation like this is more than just common sense -- I tell you it is an act of patriotism.

Our nation must be fair to the poorest among us, so we will increase aid to needy Americans to cope with rising energy prices. We often think of conservation only in terms of sacrifice. In fact, it is the most painless and immediate way of rebuilding our nation's strength. Every gallon of oil each one of us saves is a new form of production. It gives us more freedom, more confidence, that much more control over our own lives.

So, the solution of our energy crisis can also help us to conquer the crisis of the spirit in our country. It can rekindle our sense of unity, our confidence in the future, and give our nation and all of us individually a new sense of purpose.

You know we can do it. We have the natural resources. We have more oil in our shale alone than several Saudi Arabias. We have more coal than any nation on Earth. We have the world's highest level of technology. We have the most skilled work force, with innovative genius, and I firmly believe that we have the national will to win this war.

I do not promise you that this struggle for freedom will be easy. I do not promise a quick way out of our nation's problems, when the truth is that the only way out is an all-out effort. What I do promise you is that I will lead our fight, and I will enforce fairness in our struggle, and I will ensure honesty. And above all, I will act. We can manage the short-term shortages more effectively and we will, but there are no short-term solutions to our long-range problems. There is simply no way to avoid sacrifice.

Twelve hours from now I will speak again in Kansas City, to expand and to explain further our energy program. Just as the search for solutions to our energy shortages has now led us to a new awareness of our Nation's deeper problems, so our willingness to work for those solutions in energy can strengthen us to attack those deeper problems.

I will continue to travel this country, to hear the people of America. You can help me to develop a national agenda for the 1980s. I will listen and I will act. We will act together. These were the promises I made three years ago, and I intend to keep them.

Little by little we can and we must rebuild our confidence. We can spend until we empty our treasuries, and we may summon all the wonders of science. But we can succeed only if we tap our greatest resources -- America's people, America's values, and America's confidence. "

There is all sorts of speculation here in C-town about Hafner. Bad shoulder, gun shy after being beaned in the face last year ... juice.

Some observers wonder if testing for amphetamines might not have slowed down some players' bats.

Pulled for Goydos, wasn't surprised to see Sergio win.

SKOL Twinkies!!!!
