"Poker is ok and blogs are ok, but put the two together and you have less than what you started with."
FREAK OF NURxTURE
Wow, has it really been a week? My humble apologies for the pause in posting, but upon my return from the Great North tundra, I've caught a nasty bit of the flu and am still recovering.
It was my favourite cousin's wedding and was held in a Masonic Temple, a 150 year old historical building. This was the first time the Temple had ever been open to the public. Was pretty trippy. They even served us dinner on official Masonic china (who knew there was such a thing?). The Masonic logo was on all the plates, cups and silverware.
Based on a few conversations I had, even FreeMasons love Party Poker!!
Very strange stuff.
And yes, I pocketed a spoon.
But I digress.
I have a ton to blog, per usual, but I need to fully recover. I've even found some wonderful archived material that needs to see the light of day. It's coming, I swear.
It's gonna be a busy poker weekend. We've got Wil's tourney tommorrow night. Pauly on Saturday and Mr. Rini's on Sunday. But more importantly, my Bungals take on the Colts. Can't wait.
And guess what? Online poker and gaming is finally going to be featured THIS Sunday night on 60 Minutes.
CBS 60 Minutes Explores Internet Gaming this Sunday
