Just in case anybody didn't know one MemphisMOJO took 3rd in the Seniors NLHE event at the 45th WSOP. 280K for 3 days work. Weaved his way through almost 4,500 entrants. Wow is all I can say at the moment.

Go Bruins. As i've said before...we are lucky to have such great sports teams in Boston. The Bruins always make spring fun...the RedSox are really happy about know what I mean?

Blogger Tournament? Online Poker? What is this?

PokerMeister  posted something I never thought I would see again. A free blogger type tourney with Bitcoin prizes....hmmmmm. I wonder what this could do to my poker-free life? Here is the site that will host the Blogger freeroll

So let's see if we can get some BitCoin at Seals with Clubs and create a new economy!

Patriots will be back in the AFC Championship next year

Their crazy off season and current injury riddled season caught up to them in a big way this week. Now we have Denver vs. Seattle. Good luck to least it will be a good SoupBowl. I'm looking forward to laying a few prop bets and hitting on the SB squares I purchase. I guess the nickname of the SB will be the 'Pot Bowl' or the 'Stupor Bowl' or something like that.
This is the collective thought around this area of the NE right now. Enjoy :

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Hopefully I'll be able to do some Poker Tournaments during the Holidays this year....there hasn't been a whole lot of Poker to speak of but I'm going to try to change that....

What a birthday present!!! World Series Champs!!!

What can I's been quite a year. The RedSox have bucked the odds and went worst to first. They won the World Series on my birthday as well.....there is nothing left to say.

I guess this is the fourth time the RedSox have gone against the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series. What a year...what a comeback...what a story. There is nothing left to say but.......

Grace Potter & The Nocturnals-The Allman Brothers Band Sept. 6th Comcast Center

One hell of a show. Grace Potter is fantastic. The Allman Brothers were fantastic (G. Allman didn't fare so well and kept leaving the stage during the show...but he's getting old) but they didn't play their usual encore. It was strange having the montage of photographs in the background without the band playing as usual. As I said Greg Allman left the stage a bunch of times during the show and he looked...well...awful. He sung only two songs and stood and played the guitar for 'Melissa'...but his legs looked like denim covered bones. Something strange was going on. Nevertheless....Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks stole the show. They jammed quite a bit with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals so I was a bit stunned at the end...but still very happy overall. Here are some photos from my crappy iPhone 3GS.

Black Crowes at BoA Pavilion

Great show. I haven't seen them in years. I decided last minute to get tickets....except I bought tickets for the wrong night...Aug. 6th which is also a Tuesday. My buddy and I went to the box office and picked up a couple of tickets...way better for the July 30th show. 30 rows better. It was surreal to be told that the tickets I had originally bought were for next Tuesday. I'm glad it went down that way though. I took a bunch of photos with my crappy iPhone 3GS which has most definitely reached the end of its usefulness. Enjoy if you can make out the grainy pictures.

Went to Rockingham Park Saturday

Won a couple of 40.00 SitNGo's. I lost in the 4:30 NLHE 70.00 tourney with AK. Of course the guy that knocked me out had AQo...what else is new. I got knocked out of the 80.00 Turbo that they put on at 9:00 PM...I love that tourney. I decided to leave (after going to the bathroom) when a guy was clearing out his 'air hole' in his neck and was cleaning out his air tube that went into the neck the sink in the bathroom. When are they going to put a casino in Massachusetts? The idiots that run this state are so caught up in their own red tape and corruption.

Straight Flush

This could be interesting...I wonder if they hurried this out because of other books/movies about the Poker Boom.

The most Epic Comeback in Hockey history

The most epic comeback in Hockey history happened last night...and most people didn't see. I didn't see it coming and the Toronto Maple Leafs certainly didn't either. WOW is all I can say!

I used to go to the Red Sox game every Patriots Day in Boston. The game would let out and everybody would drift down to see the finish line of the Boston Marathon. It was always a nice spring day of sports and revelry. It's always been a day you either watched the marathon on TV or frequent a spot along the route. It is all changed we will be watching and hoping nothing ever happens like it did yesterday. I thought my generation grew up in the age of terrorism. My daughters are witnessing terror on what seems a daily basis. I was actually on the way home from Foxwoods and decided around 2:30 to not go through Boston. I went around it and I was on rt. 128 when I heard at 2:50 about some kind of bomb and it's aftermath. I had to get home and turn on the news. I was also waiting for my parents to drop off my daughters at my house. There were some horrific images and recordings of the events coming through at that time. My daughters arrived with my parents. Fresh from a day at the park they were happy but I couldn't turn off the news. I sent them to watch Nickelodeon away from all the graphic images and news. My parents and I and my wife (who started doing housework....she does this when she "Can't control what happens...I have to keep busy") discussed some of the stuff coming on TV. I guess when I was a toddler and my parents went to a European vacation back in '73 or so...there was a terrorist strike at a landmark that they went to visit not long after they had been there. Nobody knows what to say or do...we just have to get through it...again. Later in the evening after trying to keep my daughters from the inevitable I had a conversation with my older daughter who is about to turn 8 in a couple of weeks. I asked her if she knew about what had happened and she just said "...about the bombs going off? yes I know about that...I heard it on the radio and saw some pictures." She was very matter-of-fact and seemed to know what was going on. I asked how she felt about it and the answer made me realize that our kids are almost completely desensitized to the horrific events. She kind of looked at me with some sad eyes and shrugged her shoulders and said "It happens...I guess....there is a lot of bad people that do these things right?" I sort of agreed and let her know that these things that happened yesterday (and the Sandy Hook massacre...which is still foremost on our minds and hers) are not normal. I can't believe it but then again I can believe it...
There is a story about a whole family practically wiped out. A son and daughter hugged their dad who ran the marathon at the finish line. They went back to the sidewalk and the first bomb went off. The eight year old boy died. His sister lost a leg and the mother was in brain surgery this morning still. They are from Dorchester. I also heard two brothers from the town I live in both lost a leg. They were standing next to the 8 year old boy and his family. Their mother also lives in out town. This is hitting home. There is some sort of media blackout happening. There are a ton of press conferences and media coverage sure....but there is still nothing that can be confirmed. God bless everybody in Boston and especially the victims of this cowardly act. The act of terror will not stop us from doing what we do....
