Why Poker Bloggers Rock

Quick post (for those of you who know how much I can talk, or write, nothing is every really quick).

First, another shout out to Drizz. Irish Jim was kind enough to let me know that Drizz was an even better sport that I thought - he wore the Packer shirt well into Sunday night. I'm not sure what his BAC was at that point (he's apparently still got bees buzzing in his head), but I appreciate that this true-blue Vikings fan can accept his lost bet with grace, humor, and style. What a honey. Although, come to think of it, he did get a free shirt.

Second, I just wanted to post the first picture of the event, which really isn't of the event at all. It's a representation of why this community of poker bloggers and their friends, raggedy as we all are from our multiple corners of the continent (or beyond) is really great. Whether you support the war or not, you read my husband's blog, support the fact that he's over there doing the job he was asked to do, whether that would be his preference or not, and welcomed me into your little fold like an old friend. I don't think I'll ever let DrChako come alone again!

So to Tragedy, for buying it and organizing it and getting it to Vegas, and to everyone else who put pen to this baby, I want to say . . .




Thanks. He and I will treasure this personal gift for a long time to come. You're a great group of people and maybe next time, we'll get him to play and sing a little something. Until then, I'll keep it safe for his return.


Respectfully submitted,


The Wife

You know....

You needed me to take that picture! The internet does you no justice at all.

You are still beautiful to me though.
(in a sisterly kinda way Doc!)
You need to know that I got goosebumps when I knew it was you walking towards us. Just the best feeling in the world.

M. It was a true pleasure. We just can't wait for the four of us to get together now.

I even SLEPT in the shirt!

I think I got Packers cooties from it though :)

I loved the confused look on your face when I first introduced myself as "Dave", then your reaction when I mentioned I was "Drizz" :)

Wow, it doesn't even matter that I have no idea who's signatures are on the guitar, that is just awesome! All else aside, girl, you are WEARIN' that dress! Yow!

Now thats the full body picture I have been waiting for! Much better in person when I can give it a hug though!! It was great to see you... I think my signature makes it a collectors edition.. lol. I hope the Doc and your family enjoy it and I look forward to hearing him play it next year!!!

Glad you came out to hang with all of us. If the doc tries to come without you in the upcoming years I'm sure everyone will throw a fit.

Waffles is funny...he wants the full hug and doesn't apologize for it...now only if BamBam would do the same. in any case, where are the rest of the pictures. I wanted some of me and friends together.

Keep your shirt on, Rooster. I will post . . . with you in your full winning glory. Just remember who hugged you before you were a winner . . .
