Tough weekend for MTT's....Great Monday...

I took a beating in the MTT's that I decided to frequent this past weekend. Despite being well ahead in the majority of hands that I was knocked out. I did qualify for the 750K on Full Tilt...all for the price of one silly token. Some bloggers are talking about soft token tourneys and they are not lying! I try once of Full Tilt and qualify...I tried 10 shootouts on PokerStars and miss by a hair. I should have just bought into the Sunday Million..but the bankroll angel on my shoulder says.."think about all the times you complained about using your bankroll unwisely"....well said bankroll dude! I haven't looked at the HH's yet for the bigger buyin tourneys that I played but I'll probably learn something when I do.

To make up for all the near misses I had two things happen today on my way into work and at work.
1. I was coasting on a road near work and saw a yellow light. There is a 4-way intersection and the yellow light turned red right as I started to coast through it. I turned to the right and saw a cop staring right at me and in slow motion I just sort of shrugged my shoulders and started to slow down. I figured he would flip the lights on and just pull my donkey-ass right over. Nada...he just coasted through the light and went on his way....I WIN!

2. An old college buddy called me up and offered me a ticket to opening day in Fenway Park with the world series celebration and all the fanfare....I WIN!
