Vegas and the Patriots.

Wow I guess I am the only Loser not in VEGAS with the rest of the Bloggers.
Well I can't actually go this time of year, Since I work in retail and taking a weekend
off in the middle of December is really not an option.

Good News is that My Good friend Rob is home on leave from Iraq for 2 weeks.
I let him Convince me to go to foxwoods on thursday to play the 10am tourney.
$100 buyin $80, $20 juice, T1500 to start with 20 min levels, With the blinds doubling every round. Not alot of play for that fee you might say.

Not much to report on my outing played tight and stole a few blinds to stay right around
T1100 until the 2rd level started when it was 50/100 I woke up UTG+1 with KK and
raised to 300 and the guy from MP ReRaises to 600, I pushed for about 600 more which had the guy covered and he flips over AA. He catches an A on the flop and IGHN. I actually had T25 left but that didnt go so well.

Played some 4/8 limit which played like a 1/2 game 4-7 people seeing every flop.
3 limpers A raise and 5 calls. that about sums it up.
got stuck early by flush chasing Bums (yeah that really looked the part) but grinded about 3/4th of it back before heading off to eat.

So not a great day at the Woods But I do like playing Live. there is something about Taunting the bums and trying to tilt them that I find Sickly amusing.

Hope everyone in vegas Gets Food Poisioning from some free buffet. Naw Just kidding.

Too Bad the Patriots forgot that the Game started at 1pm today.
maybe they can pick it up during the second half.

4pm. update.

Well that was a fucking joke of a game for the patriots.
They got outplayed and made the same stupid mistakes they have been for the last
4 weeks and this time they got shut out. I am starting to think they will be
a 1 and Done team in the Playoffs this year, that is assuming they actually make it in.

Harrahs and their allegiance to the WSOP

Harrahs and their allegiance to the WSOP: "Harrahs and their allegiance to the WSOP"

I guess this goes to show everyone how much Harrahs actually cares
about running a fair game.

Check out this article about another incident and I am sure there were many more that weren't reported.

I guess all Harrahs cares about is making money.

Patriots Cheerleaders

Nickleanddimes: "Did either team even want to win or were they worried more about hypothermia due to the 15 million cold weather mentions by Fox Sports? Yes, it’s Chicago, its December, its outdoors, so it might not be 75 and Sunny."

What game is Drizz talking about? My guess is the vikes game.
But he might as well as have been talking about the Patriots-Lions.
Talk about two teams trying to give the Game away. Maybe the Patriots
thought the game started at 4?

I still want to believe that the Patriots are NFL elite, but I am starting
to think they are not even in the top 3 anymore. The injury's are starting to
pile up like billy joels accidents. They are Paper thin at Linebacker and Vrabel got hurt at the
end of the game. Maroney got hurt also and he would be a huge loss, Dillion still has alittle left but his nowhere near an every down back anymore.

Now I do believe that if they can get healthy. Getting Rodney Harrison back for the playoffs and
maybe a LB back and that is assuming that There is nothing Major wrong with Laurence Maroney and they are real close. Why you ask? Well Tom Brady is the Best Qb in the NFL.
thats why and As long as he is standing they will have a shot.

they could go 4-o or 2-2 in these last 4 games at first they looked easy but
Miami always plays the Patriots tough. then the Texans, Jacksonville and then they finish with Tennessee, who will be fighting for a playoff spot with a young QB.

Not as easy as it looked 3 weeks ago. But who knows what 4 weeks of NFL action will bring,
