Monday Miscellany

1) Congrats to former poker blogger and good guy cmitch, who finished 56th in WSOP Event #53 No-Limit Hold'em. His $1500 buy-in and deep run earned him a nice cash of $8743. Congrats!

2) Our cat Boyfriend never returned nor was found. After a phone call I had to check another tabby cat that was found dead in our area, but it was much smaller than Boyfriend. We were informed by a neighbor that he found the remains of an animal that had apparently been killed and eaten by a fox. We wife looked at what was left and is pretty sure it was not our cat. Boyfriends size and the lack of collar or tags at the site support that idea. It is always possible that a coyote got him since they have been know to occasionally wander the area.

Boyfriend wandered into our lives mysteriously and then disappeared just as mysteriously. I guess there is always a chance that somehow he will return, but we are awfully discouraged. We miss him terribly.

3) Spent a couple of days in southern Illinois at the lake house of some friends. Their daughter, a special needs child, had not had a bowel movement in two weeks. She was given several laxatives. Last night she was up all night until 7:00 this morning in her bedroom. The two week wait is over. If I ever hear someone use the words "shit storm" I now officially know what one looks like.

4) The new salary cap in the NHL caused an unpleasant and surprising development for me. The Chicago Blackhawks traded my favorite player, Michael Frolik. He will be playing for the Winnipeg Jets next season. major bummer.

5) Chicago MLB. White Sox and Cubs. Combined 26 games out of fist place. 'nough said. Football season can't come quickly enough.

Oddly enough this baseball season I have cautious optimism instead of "how are we going to f'it up again"

the past few years I was optimistic that we'd just get over 500 for the first time in a couple of decades....
It's a strange feeling to be a Pirates Fan this year... really strange

1. I hope he at least posts an update. I had no idea he was even playing anymore! How'd you find out? Can you shoot him an email and ask him to contact me? I'm going to be in Tampa the last week of July.

2. Have hope. Boyfriend will return.

3. LOL.

5. As a Yankee fan, I can relate (this year). It looks like it's going to be a long drought for New York fans as well.

#3 - TMI!

#5 - even though the Red Sox are doing well so far this season, I'm tired of them and their drama over the last few years. Let's bring on the football!

@Cranky -- Yeah, gross story which was beyond gross in real life. I just thought anyone who has either has kids or watched them for a significant amount of time would be able to relate -- and be thankful that they were not the recipients of such a scene!
