Now Playing: Tenacious D - Tribute
Well, I guess I can start with why I feel lucky. Second place baby! I took second in the Saturday night tournament.... We actually split second 3 ways, but I can still claim it because I had more chips than anyone but the leader, who hat at least 10 times what I had.... The deal we took was pretty good, I walked with over $300 for my troubles.
I had a great night last night playing, making a little over $200 in a very soft 1-5. I probably could have done better, but I had several problems to deal with so my true focus wasn't on playing.
My old buddy, we'll call him 'T' is back in from Montana. I am kidding about buddy, the guy is one of the most annoying people I have ever met. Bad lisp, horrible personality, and doesn't know when to shut up. I will give him the fact that he is an above average player, which makes it even worse. I just hope none of the players try to stomp on him. I would have a moral obligation to prevent it. I last saw him 3 years ago, and I'm serious that it was good he left town when he did, because I knew of a few guys that wanted a piece. I hope he doesn't overstay this time.
The Jazz sorely disappointed me this evening, falling to the Spurs by 35? 37?, I'm not sure. Anything over 30 is just horrible. Please Jazz, please show up and play next game....
As for my bets last night, I thought I had money in the bank, but it wasn't so. Mr Stevie Nash got his head cracked shortly into the 2nd quarter. I ended up missing to bets on the parlay, both the suns and the over. I have to believe that if Nash had stayed in the game Phoenix would have gotten the extra 3 points I needed, and the game would have gone over. I missed the over by 10 or so.
Tried to catch a 2nd half bet on the Jazz tonight, but I missed. Down by 26, I got them -4 the second half. They could've lost by 21 and I would have been a winner. 37 points? I hope Kirilinko isn't hurt too bad. I hope I can remember how to spell his name next time too.
Well, another day in paradise, only 2 more to go, then its Vegas baby, Vegas!
