TV Table

Holy shit!  Check this out!

Fike has been wanting to do something this for his home game but we have all said we weren’t interested in letting him have that much access to our hole cards.

Super Bowl Sunday!!!

Enjoy the Super Bowl!  The PokerSlut Tour will not be playing tonight so all of you degenerates can eat like pigs, drink like fish, and win/lose your bankroll at the sportsbook.  Oh, don’t give me that look.  You know who you are.

High Stakes Poker

Now that PokerStars’ Big Game is over I’m at a loss for good TV poker.  I can’t wait for the next season of High Stakes Poker to start.  Sadly, a lot of the pros that are the most fun to watch won’t be there.  Full Tilt isn’t letting any of their players, including Tom Dwan and Patrik Antonius, play in the game now that PokerStars owns the show.  It’s a shame, too.  They certainly make for must see TV whenever they play.

Am I the only one that thinks they used blackjack cards for the scenes where the dealer is laying out the flop?  I don’t know of any poker decks that have the corners cut off.  That seems like such a silly mistake to make.

Next Phone

I have birthday money burning a hole in my pocket.  I think my in-laws are getting tired of hearing me say I want a new phone every year but they still include a nice check in my birthday card.

This HTC Thunderbolt phone is looking awesome!  My next upgrade isn’t until late March but this phone is rumored to be coming out in the next two weeks or less.  That’s ok though, I want other people to discover any flaws there might be before I buy one. 

I love my HTC Incredible that I picked up last April.  I liked it so much that I bought my boys each one for Xmas.  I think HTC makes the best phones out there.  Oh sure, Motorola and Samsung are making some nice stuff.  Motorola’s Blur interface doesn’t do anything for me and Samsung is dragging their feet on updating their phones to the latest version of Android.  I’m not inclined to buy a phone from either of them (although the Motorola Bionic looks amazing).

Rumor has it the Thunderbolt will go on sale the day after that other popular phone goes on sale.  I’m assuming Verizon wants something else to tempt buyers with if/when they run out of the other one.  I’m all for that if it means the Thunderbolt comes out sooner rather than later.  They better have stock when I my upgrade hits.

What is the Internet?

Good times.  Who knew it would turn into what it is today… the world’s source of pron and viruses.
