2 Things - Football & Poker

Good morning my pets,

Frigging Tebow...or frigging Waffles, depending on how you want to look at it.  :)  Can you believe the Broncos beat the Steelers?  WTF.  Even when the Steelers were behind I thought it was just a temporary thing and fully expected them to take down the win.  Boy was I wrong.  That really crushes my fantasy football team....goodbye defense.  *sigh*  I suppose it makes for an easier game next week for the Patriots, but personally, I think it would be an easy win regardless of which team they'd be up against. Pfff

Poker - I spent many hours (too many) playing online poker yesterday.  In fact, I had so much to get done, yet I didn't do anything, except click, click, click.....get a diet coke.....click, click, click.  Unfortunately, I am not exaggerating.  I played 3,258 games yesterday (okay maybe not quite that much) and here's what happened.  I started out Sunday morning with about a $40 balance.  Played 6 (yes 6) double or nothings throughout the day and won 5 of 6.  I also played a $15 tournament and came in 3rd place.  Tony was railing me and saw me take 2 very bad beats on the river *sigh* that resulted in my 3rd place win.  It was certainly a good score money wise, but there was a big diff between 2nd and 3rd.  I guess all one can do is go in with the best hand.  We played 4 handed and then 3 handed in that tourney for at least 2 hours.  For real.  I wish there was a "chop" feature on BCP.  Ugh.  Upside is it was a bounty tourney and I got 5 bounties.

At my highest I brought my balance from $40 to $173, but lost the last two games I played last night, which brings me to about $120.  Not too shabbay, but I was hoping to hit $200....at least that was my hope last night.  My hope today is to not go busto.  :)  I will achieve this by not playing tonight.  I think I've had enough and deserve a night off.  As I right this, I'm very sleepy and have promised myself I'm going to bed early tonight.  Mmmmmmm I want to be there NOW, wrapped in my comforter, with my kindle at an arm's length.

Play smart.

Josie

Badbilly! I thought you'd forgotten about me. *sniff*

Congrats on the cash!

Zin said...

Well my beloved Steelers lost yesterday, so now its time to back the Texans who are going to shock the world.
@josie, i am behind all AFC teams even the Broncos. If any AFC team remaining wins the Super Bowl it was a great year.

Josie said...

@zin, too bad you're not behind a winning team, like the Patriots. :P

Zin said...

@josie, how did you deposit on BCP? E-check, credit card etc...

Mikeg5162000 said...

You made a nice correction. All is well now. Looking at your fantasy team I see you have a Johnson... is it Andre or Calvin? Or is there another one I'm forgetting?

Zin said...

@josie, uh i believe the Steelers are the only may i repeat the only 6 Time Superbowl Champions in NFL history. The Steelers are the only team to win 4 Superbowls in a decade.

Josie said...

Zin, I used my debit card, which is linked to my checking account. If you do sign up, wait a day or 2 before depositing. If you do that BCP will offer you 100% match (or better) for your initial deposit, which you will need if we're ever playing together online. :)

Josie said...

Mike....what's with this "I see you have a johnson" crapola? Are you calling me a dude? lol

Josie said...

@Zin, *yawn* and today they are playing golf. go figure.

Zin said...

@josie, there are 1000 comedians out of work and you are trying to be funny, come on miss josie.

Zin said...

@josie, time to make some breakfast, Chorizo and potatoes taquitos sound good to me, what do you think josie.

Josie said...

Mike, it's Calvin Johnson, Detroit.

Zin, Can I help it if I am funny and provide free entertaiment to the masses? At least I'm not taking business away from street walkers! (and no, I am not!)

Mikeg5162000 said...

We've never met so for all I know you could have a johnson. Wouldn't be the first time on the 'net. But as you know I was referring to your Saturday post. BTW - it is an impressive team.

Zin said...

@josie, who did you sign up through to get rake back?

Josie said...

rakebrain, and i used Tony as a referral. ask him and he'll email you the link.

Zin said...

@josie, thanks, Go Texans

badbilly32 said...

never! im a josie lifer! a combination of snow last week proceeded by walking pneumonia, had hindered my ability to do anything but lay in bed...alas im BACK LOL! still only feel like im at 80% but feel much better than last week

Josie said...

Billy, I'm sorry to hear you were sick. Hope you get back to 100% very soon.

As a wise man once said that if you are getting sucked out way more than you suck out on someone else then you are playing good poker. That's just the way it is. Oh and the wise man. That was me.

Josie said...

JBT, I know, I know. You're right. In the end I wound up very much ahead and sucked out once or twice myself anyway. I see i failed to mention my own suck outs. Isn't that always the way?

Memphis MOJO said...

Kindles are great. I have one, too, and they are addictive.

Josie said...

@mojo, "Are they?", she asked while reading her kindle at lunchtime. :)

SirFWALGMan said...

Please note Josie is trying to make me look bad. We do have Adrian Foster. You pick 4 RBs and she only listed 3 of them. I even saw his massive points on the scoreboard I think!! WE BETTER HAVE HIM!

badbilly32 said...

i have a book for you to read miss kindle.....if you liked the sicilian/godfather you will love this book...."a man of respect" by daryl london. turi guliano dont have shit on bephino menserio! really good novel!

WhisperingWriter said...

I would totally lose at Poker.

badbilly32 said...

ROLL TIDE!(4X IN 1 DAY! DOES THIS MAKEUP FOR MY ABSENCE?)

Josie said...
