Your Weekly Dose of Awesome

I tweeted this once upon a time, but it needs to be viewed by the 12 of you that still read blogs.

This guy combines tennis and Super Mario Brothers physics (and mustache).

Your Weekly Dose of Crazy

All you need to know about me is that this could honestly just as easily go under "Awesome" as crazy. The spirit of Terry Gilliam animation lives.

But I have to admit. This is pretty damn crazy.

Your Weekly Dose of Crazy

Perhaps "Your Weekly Dose of Certain Decapitation-Based Lawsuit" would be more precise.

"Huh. Well I've been hired to create playground toys. But I hate children so, so, much. What do do, what to do . . . hold on, I think I've got it!"

The good news? That's a halfway decent hand.

The bad news? Apparently I cannot draw golf clubs.  So maybe that guy is just carrying around a shower head on a stick or something.

Again, note the lack of hands.  I think I'll try hands with the next one.

Goat At The WSOP

One of the first times I ever heard about poker, my mom was telling me that it's how my dad paid for their honeymoon.

Money? For a card game?

Apparently my dad had managed to snag enough money to take his bride on an nice little trip, for nothing but apparently being good at a card game. I was intrigued.

When I first started playing poker online, my hopes were simple. I wanted to take my bride on a trip. And I wanted to play in the WSOP.

I got my cashout from PokerStars last month.  In September, we go on a Caribbean cruise.

And in a couple weeks I am going to go play in Event 48 of the WSOP.  I even have my card capper (a 1978 Dodge Dart) picked out. Hopefully there will be many entertaining blog posts and tweets.  If you are in town, let me know. I'll have a mustache painted on so you'll know it's me.

I am fully aware that this is a crazy and foolish thing to do.  My wife is a beautiful person for being willing to let me do something crazy and foolish like this, just because I have decided that I enjoy this dumb card game and want to take a tilt at a windmill.  I'm sort of looking forward to it. 

Wish me luck.

The pawn is the one that says "Bad Mofo" on it.

There is some debate over whether this is Einstein or David Crosby. You make the call.

Note the crossed arms allow me to avoid drawing hands.

Clicking will embiggen?  Only one way to find out!
