"Poker is also a social lubricant that brings together people from all walks of life. College kids. WWII vets. Staunch Republicans. Pinko liberals. Men. Women. Other. Red Sox fans. Yankees fans. Sanitation workers. Politicians. Chefs. Stockbrokers. Immigrants. Jocks. Norwegian teenagers. Former Star Trek actors. Military doctors. Lesbian nurses. Hippies. Grandmas. Taxi drivers. Even bacon loving fat kids from Hilljack, Indiana are playing poker with vegans from Orange County. Humans making connections with other humans. We live in such a disjointed society that poker is a rare instance when people are coming together."
I'm always a tad melancholy upon returning home from the poker blogger gatherings in Vegas. There's such a flurry of great people, deep belly laughs and activity for 72 straight hours and it's all over in the blink of an eye. There's just never enough damn time.
This was a fantastic trip for me, reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. In fact, I spent a goodly amount of time just listening and simply enjoying others conversations this go around. It's easy to do with this group, trust me.
And so, I hope everyone had as much fun as I did. And for those of you who couldn't make it, you were missed.
I'm in full recovery mode, but I'll be compiling a full list of Trip Reports for your reading pleasure ASAP.
