ESPN The Magazine
So, I get this week's issue of ESPN the Magazine in the mail the other day and right above the title is a little teaser for an article on the WSOP - Crashing the World Series of Poker. Alright! I get a little excited. Cool. Of course, I head right where I head everytime I get a new issue of ESPN the Magazine - the head. It's where I do my best reading. Flip straight to the WS article (written by Jay Lovinger). I have never heard of Jay, so if he is some legend of poker or something, my apologies, and I do realize that this article is written directly for the poker dummy - but, DAMN, that friggin sucked. I mean sucked. I could have reached over, grabbed a tile of toilet paper and a crayon and scribbled a better article on poker than that. Needless to say, I was seriously disappointed in Jay's work. Again, I realize this was meant for the knownothings, but if you haven't read it yet, don't hold your breath.
Now....all that being said, Jay busts out with this hilarious line - I seriously almost fell off the pot - "As I watch, Chris chugs a bagful of M&Ms and vaporizes a package of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups faster than it takes to push your chips all in." Okay, that's hilarious - probably not what Jay was going for, but hilarious nonetheless. Chris - jeez, dude, throw a salad in brother!
