Poker Night 2: Sophomore Jinx

Now last time I played, I lost my $10 but I lasted the whole night and so all was well. This time, I wasn't so lucky. The whole night I was a few seconds behind everyone else and I just wasn't seeing the cards. It happens. It was really great seeing Aaron, Erin, Jo, and Butch. It was nice meeting some new faces with Omar and Bernardo and Morgan. Well, Morgan somehow got in my head. He was up & down a lot, shifting, talking, and it threw me further off than I was already. I know I know, excuses.
Still, I had a good time even if I spent most of the time watching. Good conversations. Learning more about people. Having more people in your life that are friendly is a very good thing. OK, enough with the kissing ass.
So thanks to Aaron for hosting the night. Next poker night, Butch will be buying me in as I bought him in this time. Since he had a profitable night, it was good for all involved. Til next time...

Rape and Pillage!

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are now 3-0 to start a season for the first time since 2000. Of course that was the year they couldn't score a TD in the NFC Championship game and the Rams could, leading us all to have to watch Vermeil break down crying again.

Now we have a Cadillac: Carnell Williams has 434 yards in his first three games as an NFL Running Back. That's a rookie record and currently leads the NFL. 158 more yards and two Griese-to-Galloway (G2G) touchdowns helped beat the Packers at Lambeau Field, 17-16.

Before the season started I thought these guys didn't have a chance to compete. Even when they beat the Vikings and Bills I brushed it off as luck. I'm still not ready to print playoff tickets, but it is certainly a promising start to the season.
