Superbowl Sunday

Josie's Pick

Is it Sunday yet?  I can't freaking wait for the weekend.  I'm playing in the final league poker game on Super Bowl Sunday, and then staying there afterwards for the party and to watch the game.  I ended up in 5th place in the league which got me $125.  Coincidentally, the buyin for this game is $100 plus a $20 scratch ticket bounty.  So I netted $5.  Wheee.

I love Superbowl Sunday.  This is the first year the party isn't at my house.  I'm kinda bummed about that, but the upside is I don't have to do much work.  Just show up and par-tay. 

And play poker.

This is the big game of the year.  With 15 peeps, first place is $800.  I want that prize.  I want the bragging rights.  I want it all!  Last tourney I played with them I took 2nd and a deal that was almost a split of the money.  Too good a deal to pass up, even though I should've just taken my chances to get first place and the points associated with it.  I was 1 point behind 4th place which would've given me another $50.

I would love that cash to add to my Vegas fund.  Obviously, I'm a bit lucky....a bit can happen!  My biggest competition is Marvin, with Lynne and June being the easiest fish to fund my stack.  Here's hoping I have lesbians and not black men at my table.

Big poker game and big football game all in one day.  I love watching the Super Bowl.  I got to see my buddy Butch moon the TV last year.  We're close friends now.  lol  Oh and it's Steelers all the way.  Yes, it is!  Auntie Josie KNOWS.  I am not in love with either team, which makes my pick that much more objective and accurate.

Blah.  The only bummer about Superbowl Sunday is that it's the end of Football.  For an entire season!  I love football.  It makes Sunday so exciting.  But when God closes a door, he also opens a window.....pitchers and catchers report in about 2 weeks to Fort Myers.

Grapefruit League!

Gives me hope that somehow......someday.......the snow will be gone and spring will be here.

Picture it! May....Friday evening, grandstand section of Fenway Park.  The lights are on, but it's not quite pitch dark yet.  The sky is aglow with rich colors as the sun sets.  And Beckett's on the mound! We're shelling peanuts and yelling at Franconia.  We're not THAT far away from this, people!  There is a light at the end of the tunnel.  And um, there's peanuts and popcorn there too.

Go Sox.

Go Steelers.

Go Snow!

Play smart.
