Early Oct. means it's time to go to the beach....

Yup....I was swimming at the beach yesterday like it was late August. The water was warmer than it was when I went on my annual vacation to Salisbury Beach. I went swimming twice no less!! In poker news.....Full Tilt Poker continues to suck ass. Absolute Poker continues to suck ass and I haven't played in months. I can't go to the Poker Classic at Foxwoods and probably won't be able to go until late Oct. when my birthday rolls around. After the Red Sox set the record for all time futility I am really happy that the Patriots and Bruins have started their seasons and both are doing well. I can't believe that the Sox, Phillies, and Yankees are all out of the fall classic. That is going to make for some interesting baseball series for baseball fans around the country...but I won't be all that interested. I would like the Milwaukee Brewers to win a world series but anything goes this year. Back to Full Tilt poker for a second.....back when the pro reps went to D.C. for hearing on the viability of legalizing online poker...they sure seemed confident that something would happen soon. A certain pro was quoted "I am really confident something will get done in the next 6 months...it looks really good" and it was also reported that he was confident in his mannerisms as well. I wonder if they knew what was going to happen before it happened on Black Friday?? It kind of seems that they must have known. I wonder if any of these Russ Hamilton type players will suffer the same image destruction that the latter suffered. It doesn't seem to have happened yet...it doesn't even seem like it is going to happen. My questions are plenty. The Government is in tough enough shape and they are being investigated for all sorts of scandals. The guy in charge of enforcing the ban of online poker is being investigated himself for not only crimes punishable for life but also perjuring himself in front of Congress. That can and will mean that online poker is going to be on the back burner forever. Sometimes I really miss online poker but I can't believe that I was walking through life playing almost every night...I don't know how I functioned. I don't miss it as much as I used to...I think I would play a lot less if it was ever to come back though. What I really do miss is the bloggaments...those were some fun tourneys. I miss the banter on the Instant Messengers etc. during the tourneys. That is probably what I miss the most.

Same her -- miss the bs-ing but not really the online poker. In fact, I had previously told my wife that I thought my days of playing online were limited since I only seemed to enjoy the blogger tourneys. I have now, however, invested much more time playing live, which is great.
