More importantly, guess what I didn't do? I didn't play poker. Boo! I woke up Saturday morning with the house to myself as the kiddo was at a sleep over. I thought "Ahhh too bad I can't play a nice deep stack tourney on FT. Ugh. Instead I made a pot of coffee and watched "Swamp People".
Ever see that show?
I'm not a big fan of animals, as you may already know (see archives for my raccoon and dog troubles) nor am I a fan of guns (polar opposite baby) and I especially dislike hunting, but man I love that show. Yes, the show is about crocodile hunters down in the bayou, and they shoot them with guns up close and personal (yuck) but the show's appeal is bigger than that.
I just like watching the people. Seeing people that have lived their lives on the swamp is just so dang interesting to me. I love the way they talk, their culture and their work ethic. My fave hunter is Troy. Perhaps because he looks and sounds like one of the guys at my poker table - which is funny, considering the guy at my poker table is as italian as......me. Go figure.
Anyway, back to the subject of the first paragraph...I WANT TO PLAY POKER! And I want to play NOW! But that ain't gonna happen because it's 8:30am on Monday morning and I am heading into a management meeting. It's funny though - years of reading people at the poker table def pays off at meetings like the one I'm about to attend. I find myself looking at someone before they speak and knowing what they're going to say based on their demeanor. Seriously. Anyone else ever notice that happen to them?
Oh and I'm going to another Red Sox game tonight. A new guy named Miller is pitching and the weather is nice, so it should be a great night. Of course it ain't poker playing, but it'll do.
Okay duty calls so I have to fly.
I Didn't Raise With the Nuts - This was one of my last sessions in Vegas. In fact, it was so late in my December trip it actually took place in January. I was off to a rough start, and ...
