- This batman spoof is a little old but extremely well done.
- I thought the whole Lebron James hour special was ridiculous. I'm not sure how or when his people thought it was a good idea but the whole thing was extremely awkward and poorly done. In addition, he's really not a talented speaker and came off terribly during the whole special. John Wooden once said "Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there." He's without a doubt one of the most talented players ever to play the game and yet he could not have handled his free agency any worse. Maybe it comes with being a prodigy but you would think the people in his corner would've offered up some better advice. In addition despite being so talented he probably won't ever be talked about with Jordan, Russel, etc even if he wins championships since he went with Wade to do it.
- I've been playing a lot more poker lately. With baseball winding down I've been putting in hands on Stars and Tilt which and the action has been pretty good since they randomized the tables. The lobbies are also much less cluttered thanks to the rules there. I probably won't make it to 5/10 this year since I didn't play a whole lot the past few months and had to withdraw a bunch due to Vegas, taxes, etc. However 3/6 is a realistic goal by the end of the year and I'd be very happy with that.
- Down on the Farm continues in a couple weeks. I'll be picking back up at .5/1 and hopefully will be up at 1/2 by the end of it, there's really no excuse for me not to be. I do have at least one guest that I'm sure will be well received and am hopeful that the DC members will be happy with it.
Be sincere; be brief; be seated.
