This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

shuffle up and deal.

today the main event begins showing on espn. and it's entertaining for some... mainly of the male gender.
i know it's strange, but i can't watch golf, or tennis on television, but poker i'm totally ok with, and even enjoy. i have my favorites, and root for them until.. if and when they get knocked out, then i select another. i can't even play hold 'em. well i can. but i lose... alot. and i get high anxiety when i play. but watching is something i can do. especially after meeting a few of the ranked players and seeing the wsop tournament action live. i'm not sure what it is.. the chip leader vs. the short stack, big blinds, doubling up, the flop, the turn or the river, going heads-up, getting pocket ace's, or getting the nuts.

a groupie is me.
