Get in the game!!!! We’ve got the 2nd sbo WSOP Satellite on Sunday night, and we’re at just 29 entries. That’s not enough to pay out a single seat.

Where is everyone?

I know you’re intimidated by my exceptional talent, but that’s no reason to cower in your living room and watch timidly from the rail. Log in and sign up. You know the deal. So what are you waiting for?

This ain’t for you. It’s for me.

1) Knowledge that isn’t utilized is worse than ignorance.

2) Pride is not an excuse.

3) In the realm of cliches, it’s not so much that patience is a virtue as haste truly makes waste.

4) To overcome envy, one must accept that it exists.

5) There’s a reason it’s called “instinct.”

6) Furthermore, there is a reason they are called “decisions.”

It’s been a long week. Work has been a bit of a bear. The kid contracted rotovirus and ended up in the hospital for a bit. So, as Thurday drew to a close, I was more than happy to receive the following note via e-mail.

In short, I am now officially rowdy.
