Personal Bits 'n' Pieces
1) I probably should not have played in last night's Mookie. I was a little under the weather, and I don't always make great choices in poker when I am not feeling well. I got virtually no cards but played a smart game until ... argggggg. I could have made the laydown, should have made the laydown after I hit the second nut flush on the river and was re-popped by a good player. Bad decision.

2) Still looking for a car for my son. It is amazing how many good looking used cars on have over 120,000 miles. Back when most American-made cars were junk, reaching 100,000 miles was seen as a big milestone. No more.

3) The Chicago Bears are playing the Cleveland Browns as I write. They don't look as terrible as they have the past two pre-season games, but it is obvious that this will be a tough season for fans. Todd Collins looks like a good signing for back-up quarterback. He played pretty well tonight after having been in camp for only ten days. Will the Bears brass be stupid and cut him, leaving Caleb Hanie and Dan LeFevour to back up Jay Cutler? If so, please pray for Cutler's health.

4) The Chicago White Sox are now part of MannyWorld. Signing Ramirez can't hurt and might help. However, the only chance to catch the hated Twins (bah to you, OhCaptain) is for the team to keep hitting and fielding like it has been and for the bullpen to get healthy and perform like it did earlier in the season. They still have a chance, but time is slipping away.

5) The busiest period of the year at work is over. I get paid well and therefore won't bitch too much about work, but I sure earn my money during those weeks. The big boss spent some time observing my area during the nasty spell. I think he now has a much better appreciation for what we do.

6) We really need another Battle of the Blogger Tournaments. The poker blogging world has been dull and unexciting.

I used to go play poker (at the casinos) on Friday night, but I was always tired and didn't play my best. I now usually wait until Sat or Sun.

Speaking of baseball, my SL Cardinals are also running out of time. I'm going there for the game this Sunday, YES!!

Crap! I think Blogger ate my comment.

1. Far superior to Grumps Giggli in the Bammer. He made his holding 53s with a paired board and reraised.

2. I found my last ride online. You can sort by miles. I was lucky to find my Explorer. SUVs were slow and they were ready to deal -- 65K and 6 years old.

3. I can't even watch. What was that movie title?

4. Another area team went into Sept further ahead than the twins. Keep the faith

Ahhh, good luck on your playoff drive...last night felt like the final nail in the coffin for my Rox. Up 7-3, lose 12-11, gahh.

You'll be happy you've only got Manny for a month, though!
