We had a gathering of poker heads at the warehouse last night. Me, Jim the Knife, T, Lou D., B Razz, the Brown Recluse, and later Falstaff joined in the festivities. I’ll just say right off the top that it was my best night in a local poker game. I started off hitting my cards and pretty much ended the night the same way. Since I' knew a trip to Vegas was starting early in the morning, I called it quits at midnight with 414 more than I came with.
Our table discussion had a good run and many laughs with quotes from Monte Python and the Holy Grail. The Life of Brian also came up. I’ve run into several conversations where people found LoB just as funny as HG. I don’t see it, but that opinion was voiced again last night. Maybe I’ll have to go back and watch it again. I’ve only watched it once sober and that was on commercial TV.
Several fun jokes were made about the balloon-boy saga that hit the news this past week. For example, I heard something in the 911 call that I would never want a parent to hear, “Does your son know how to operate the flying saucer?” We also put the odds on Pres. Obama winning the best actor oscar at 2:1. Also heard - “You only have $10? You’d be better off buying my book and going home now.”
I’m sitting in Pheonix’s Sky Harbor Airport as I write this. We board for Vegas in about 10 minutes. Here’s hoping that the roll will continue.
