Presto is GOLD!!!

Hey, if Fuelcan do eighty or so posts about it, I think I can do one. Even if it is Omaha H/L......the donkiest of online games.

God, this was a fun session. Two hands, really, made it nice.

Hell, it was a fun ORBIT. I wasn't there more than 15 minutes.

See you at the donkament.....maybe. It depends on how the wife feels and how I feel after taking the kids out for dinner.

Tomorrow is a fun day to the Sesame Street exhibit at Imaginarium, and Monday is a trip to the Georgia Aquarium. So you won't see me logged in very much.

Sunday is a rest day. Maybe the park or one of Kennesaw's trails, but that's it.

Strong Effort

15 of us showed for the trial this morning at the police station. It was weird getting the looks from folks headed to the courtroom, wondering why there were a bunch of us in workout/athletic gear.

Trial 1: Vertical Leap. Had to do 16.5 inches - jump up, hit a stick, same as the NFL Combine. I cleared it at 21.5 inches on the first try.

Trial 2: Sit-ups, 27 in a minute. I started out strong, but couldn't get all the way there on my 23rd. I would get another chance after completing my runs, though. I was able to do it last week and earlier this week, so I thought I'd be able to get it the second time.

Trial 3: 18 push-ups in a minute. I cleared it in about 30 seconds. I guess lifting the small weights while at the computer, writing, or playing poker helped a bit.

Trial 4: 300 meter print in 68 seconds. I struggled a little, but managed to make it in a little under 66 seconds. Very close, but I made it. I was trying to pace myself and not burn too much energy before the long run.

Trial 5: 1.5 mile run in 15:20. This was the one I had always worried about. I started at a moderate pace, but got tired much more quickly than I had previously. I'm not sure if it was because the sprint took more out of me than I thought, or pressure, or humidity, or what. I did finish the run, but in 16:59.


11 passed the exams today, and four did not. I was unfortunately one of the four who did not.

Still, I probably can be proud of even coming this far. A month ago, I could barely run 1/4 mile. Today, even though it was a slow run, I did slog through a mile and a half after the other trials were completed.

Who knows, in 6 months (when the application process opens again) I could have a much easier time of it. Besides, I did make it to the final 25-30 out of 133 applicants and managed to drop 15 pounds in a month.

I should be proud of that.

In the meantime, I'm off to have a Wendy's triple burger meal and a coke float. I have been CRAVING that for days. Besides, I already did my daily workout, and I think I deserve it.

Recovery Complete?

I'm linking to this to show at least one area that seems to have recovered completely from Katrina.

The Gulf Coast Poker Championship starts today, with a WPT broadcast on Sept. 9. The article talk about revenue from Biloxi casinos hitting record pre-Katrina levels. I'm sure the WPT event will further boost the bottom line.


Sammie's progress is more amazing every day.

This morning was one cute scene.

I dropped Alex off and he went to join his friends in the playground. All of his friends came over to greet him, and he got hugs from a bunch of the girls in class who were almost pushing him out of the way to hug him.

If this is still happening in ten or fifteen years, then I'll worry. For now, it's cute.

Next stop, the infant room. I gave Samantha to the teacher, and she looked at me and yelled. Not cried, but yelled, almost as if to say something like, "how DARE you do this to me!" We're starting to see more of the separation anxiety that every kid that age seems to have. It was cute, but of course you get sad when you see them holler.

It stopped fairly quickly, though. She is for the most part pretty even-tempered, unlike her old man, so we're blessed in that regard.

Hopefully she won't come home again with glitter on her - that seems to be happening a lot lately. There must be lots of parties in her classroom that we don't know about.

Pimping Ain't Easy

Not sure if I will play the Mookie tonight. I think a good night's sleep may be more important tonight and playing until the wee hours of the morning might not be a good idea.

We'll see.

But first, the pimpage:

Then, a screenshot, from a $1 90-man SnG that I won, which included a nice little hammer-drop at the final table.

That's always fun.

College Pick 'Em

Well, it's time to pick, so without any long-winded pontifications let's put the predictions out there, as bad as they may be.

Big East: Louisville
Big Ten: Wisconsin
Big 12: Texas
Pac Ten: California (to hell with USC)
SEC: LSU (no Florida repeat)
ACC: Florida State (that really hurts to write)
MAC: Northern Illinois
Sun Belt: Troy
WAC: Boise State
C-USA: Central Florida (hey, why not?)

BCS: LSU over Michigan.

Day of Reckoning

Well, it is almost here.

I got the call on Friday that my physical exam for MPD was scheduled for this coming Thursday, at 8:30 AM.

So, I think it's time to take stock to see if I'm prepared.

Push-ups (18) & Sit-ups (27): Was meeting the standard as of my Friday workout, but wasn't able to meet them today. I didn't do very much on Saturday and Sunday, and that probably set me back. I should be able to meet it come Thursday, though.

Vertical leap (16"): Was never in doubt, but have been trying to do more stretching and jumping exercises the last couple of weeks snice it'll help for running.

Sprint (300m in 68 s): Was having trouble, but finally managed to break through Friday, coming in under 60 seconds on GSU's track. It REALLY felt good.

Long run (1.5 mi in 15:40): Still having trouble on this one. I was able to walk-run/sprint for a little over 2 miles, but there wasn't a stretch longer than 3/4 mile of pure, normal-speed running. I'm finding I'm starting out too fast, but given my lack of fitness I need to start out somewhat fast so I have a cushion as it goes longer. It's still a crapshoot whether I can meet the time, but the odds have gotten more in my favor.

Overall, when I started this a month ago, I weighed 246 pounds, the most I'd ever been. My goal (ambitious as it was) was to get down to 220. I didn't make it that far, but as of now it's showing as 232, so that is 14 less pounds of (mostly) fat I'm not carrying around anymore.

It's a start. Maybe with another month I can get down to 220, though with classes underway it might be a little more difficult.

Hopefully good news will follow on Thursday, because I'm still long overdue on a batch of it.

I know the reputation of pageant contestants isn't great, but this is ridiculous.

Ending the drought

After a loooooooooooooong run of not cashing in a MTT on Full Tilt, I finally did again, even if it is only a $1 buyin.

Now let's see if I can actually take something down. At least it's a positive return on investment.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, I bounced in 48th when I ran pocket jacks into pocket aces. Ugh.

Time Warp

I'm sitting here studying for class tomorrow, and listening to BuddyDank Radio, instead of playing the Mookie and listening.

Studying in the wee hours of the morning and listening to Primus, Metallica, and a bunch of other songs is leaving me to wonder where exactly the time machine is.

In honor of this strange time warp I'm experiencing, enjoy the video below. Or, click back into the original post on Blogger, if it works.

Or, go ahead and dress the part. I know some of you out there do that anyway.

If nothing else it gets Mike Vick off the top post.

Depressing End

Well, the Vick saga took a big but not surprising turn today. A plea deal was announced, with the particulars to come in a week.

Sentencing could occur in 60-90 days.

I heard about it on the way to class this afternoon, so I had a while to think about it all.

Even so, I still don't know how I feel about it.

Happy, because it looks like no one ends up above the law.

Sad, because of the potential that he had, both on the field and off, to be a good role model and community figure.

Pissed off, for a whole variety of reasons - none of them associated with the fact that Joey Harrington is the new starting QB.

At least a deal is reached - so it's essentially done and won't interfere much with the Falcons' season from this point on. No more debate about did-he-do-it/is-it-a-setup/what-happens-now that can affect the team.

Still, there's a lot of regret about what might have been. This is someone who could have really been a model citizen, a role model for lots of kids, the symbol of the franchise - and it's all been pissed away.

Welcome, thanks for coming by, now get out!

OK, it wasn't QUITE like that. Went to a new game last night, and got to meet and play with Kajagugu, Surflexus, and BrainMc in person for once.

We started with 11 among two tables, and toward the end of the first level (1500 to start, 10/20 blinds, I look down and find very nice looking rockets. I put in a small raise to 60, and get two calls, from the BB and one off the button. Flop is 9-4-3 with two diamonds (i don't have a diamond) but in thinking I am still good, I put out a small 100 bet. Surflexus calls in the BB, and the other player raises to 300.

Thinking that it's either a diamond draw or a pretty good pair (as the table had seen one showdown so far) I re-raise all in, thinking at worst I have to face nine outs twice.

After long consideration, I get a call, and get to see him flip up 4-3 offsuit. Yep, two pair, cracked on something I hadn't even remotely considered after raising it pre-flop.


No help comes, and I've become the first one bounced out. It happens sometimes. I've been hit with worse online........though not recently. After a couple more bust-outs, we started up a cash table which was a bit fun.

A little bit of online play helped today - thanks to several scoops in Omaha and Stud Hi/Lo grossing me about $10 today when I was not preparing for school tomorrow. Classes start in Brookhaven tomorrow afternoon, so the "vacation" is officially over. If you could call it that.

I have to do this, after seeing Robert De Niro on Sesame Street with Elmo this morning. I might have posted it several months ago - I can't recall and I don't want to search through 560 posts.


I feel shakier after this year's football draft than I have about any other in a long time. There were 14 picks before I made my first one, and then thanks to a trade I didn't have a pick for another 20.

Still, I think I managed OK. I have a lot of sleepers, but I don't need them all to work, just one or two.

I started with keepers at TE (Antonio Gates), RB (Frank Gore), and WR (Reggie Wayne). My plan was to get a decent RB or QB, depending on how the draft went. As we approached my pick, I thought I might be able to get Thomas Jones with my pick - but he went one prior. That made my decision between Portis, Cadillac, Marshawn Lynch, and Vince Young. Since I had issues with all 3 RB's, I took Vince Young, and said a prayer that the Madden Jinx wouldn't hit this year.

I then sat back and watched a lot until it came time to pick again two rounds later, and managed to snag Hines Ward - and I'm happy with him as a #2 receiver.

Here's how it ended up:

QB: Vince Young, Trent Green
RB: Frank Gore, Jerrious Norwood, Ahman Green, Brandon Jackson
WR: Reggie Wayne, Reggie Brown, Hines Ward, Jerry Porter
TE: Antonio Gates, Heath Miller
D: Miami, Green Bay
K: Jason Hanson

There might be a lot of weeks where I start 3 WR's. I feel the RB slot is a bit weak, but any one of the last three could have a bust-out year. However, Young at QB might help the running stats a bit. If he gets hurt.....well, I will be in some trouble, because Trent Green may be serviceable but is nowhere near an elite QB.


In unrelated news, I'm watching the kids right now, and just saw Robert De Niro on Sesame Street. Talk about strange......

In related news, the sun rose today....

I didn't know this was news. I am shocked, SHOCKED, I tell ya.

I hate slow news days.

Thursday, August 16, 2007


I've been trying to get back into running which I haven't done in, probably ten years, easily.

It hasn't been too easy. It probably has something to do with the ONE HUNDRED AND FOURTEEN DEGREE heat index we registered, which is trying to make my lungs explode.

Thankfully, GSU's gym re-opened today, so I was able to work out a little more and check my progress. So far, in two weeks, I've dropped about ten pounds. I'm not doing too well running-wise, but I am trying to do better with any cardio activity - rowing, elliptical, etc.

Only another 27 pounds to go. Hopefully enough will drop off before my agility test.

Not going tomorrow, because I'll be keeping Sammie home from school tomorrow - she's pushing teeth through, and had a fever today so she's not able to come to school tomorrow. Not too bad - the fever's related to the teeth, and baby Tylenol seems to do the trick.

So, we'll do something fun tomorrow, before my football draft. I'm just hoping the player I want is still around after 15 picks - there's six supplemental picks, then eight other teams selecting before me. After that, there's 20 picks until my next one, since I made a trade last year for Ahman Green (stupid) which cost me the 5th round pick.

Thank God I had three decent keepers in Reggie Wayne, Frank Gore, and Antonio Gates. Too bad I couldn't have won the whole damn thing and had to settle for a third 2nd-place finish.

Always the bridesmaid.....

1,000,000% ROI

Well, a little less than a year ago, Chris Ferguson started a quest to turn $0 into $10,000.

And, well, tonight, he pulled it off:

As of tonight, he sits at $13,813.07, after cashing in two tournaments and finishing up on a 10/20 NL ring to win about 4,000 in one session - nice total over five hours, and one helluva hourly rate.

And it's all going to charity.

Tossed Salad

Bobby Cox got thrown out for the 132nd time last night, setting an all-time record.

Here's one blogger's list of the top 10 ways he should celebrate.

Beating his wife was not listed as one of the possibilities.

Now, instead of focusing on this stupid record, can we start focusing again on the fact that his club is back in 3rd place and out of the wild card lead?

New York 66-52, .559, --
Philadelphia 63-55, .534, 3 GB
Atlanta 63-56, .529, 3.5 GB

Finally, something too scary

On Friday night, we were all watching TV together. Normally, we watch Animal Planet for Alex, but Kim was switching back and forth between that (which was pretty dull, even for a three-year old) and another program when I came in from putting Sammie to bed

For the first time, ever, Alex told us that he didn't like the show because it was too scary.

The show?

NY77: The Coolest Year in Hell.

He most certainly did not like these images of New York, compared to what he's seen in other shows and movies. So, I turned it off. It was interesting to think, though, about how much differently he was growing up, compared to being born right at that time. I'd say it's probably much better to be here than on Manhattan's East Side, though.

I'm just glad we haven't had a blackout with looting here with an infant - I don't think I've ever asked my parents about that whole spree. I was probably screaming my head off the whole time.

I did watch it in full last night, though, and it was definitely one of the better RockDocs shows I've seen.

Farewell to Turd Blossom

Hey, I didn't name him that.

Rove will leave at the end of the month.

Unfortunately, Gonzalez will still be around, and I'm having trouble thinking of anything good from his tenure. There's several things from Rove's tenure, but not much lately, given the administrations's handling of several issues lately (like pissing on the base during immigration scuffles) so I'm not nearly as sad about it as I would have been in, say, March 2005.

A bit of southern humor for today

H/t to A Modicum of Decorum - found while I was looking at other local bloggers. Any more I find, I'll post and link to - this site's in need of some updates.


Atlanta ATC: 'Tower to Saudi Air 911 -- You are cleared to land eastbound on runway 9R.'

Saudi Air: 'Thank you Atlanta ATC. Acknowledge cleared to land on infidel's runway 9R - Allah be Praised.

Atlanta ATC: 'Tower to Iran Air 711 --You are cleared to land westbound on runway 9R.'

Iran Air: 'Thank you Atlanta ATC. We are cleared to land on infidel's runway 9R. - Allah is Great.




Atlanta ATC: 'Go ahead Saudi Air 911?'


Atlanta ATC: Well bless your hearts. And praise Jesus. Y'all be careful now and tell Allah 'hey' for us -- y' hear?

Vick Plea Deal?

According to ESPN, Mike Vick is now seriously considering a plea deal.

Considering his co-defendants have all taken pleas to testify against him, it's not too surprising.

It would not surprise me to see a deal encompassing 6 to 9 months of jail time, with a NFL suspension to run concurrently. The Falcons cut ties after March 1, and Vick goes somewhere else.

Meanwhile, after a crappy 2007 season, the Falcons take Booty, Brohm, Ainge, or Henne in next year's draft and move on.

The end.

Weirdly named body parts

I've got the Tonight Show on in the background, and Heidi Klum is on tonight.

I'm on the computer, not paying much attention, and suddenly I hear her talking about Hans and Franz. I look up, and realize she's talking about her breasts.

I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've ever heard a body part being given a name of the other gender.

Of course, that's just an excuse to post this link and this link (not the picture) and this SNL clip.

Of course, if you ask nicely enough, I might post the pictures from the shoot too.

Good things

I'm not sure if it's because I found pennies yesterday and today, but good things seem to be happening for once.

I passed my panel interview yesterday, and now need to focus even more on being ready for the physical/agility exam. I'm hoping to slim down to about 220 by the time it takes place - which should be before the end of the month.

I'm confirmed for my Fall classes, and everything is taken care of without having to stand in line for registration.

And last, Sammie has decided it's now time to speak, as she's now said BaBa (for Alex), Dada, and Mama. Combined with pulling up and cruising around the house, she's really coming along. She even tried to follow me down the hallway at school, when I left her classroom....she crawled to the door to try and go down the hallway too.

So, good times, for now.

Keeping options open

Well, I'm still looking around, but I've at least made one decision for the future.

I met with my advisor at GSU yesterday, and I'll be a full-time student again, with 12 hours in the Fall semester.

Here's the catch:

Two classes on Monday, and two classes on 4:30 PM and 7:15 PM. So, I still have days open for work, even while I accelerate in classes.

I won't have any classes during the day or on the weekend...for now. If I take on any concentration classes, then I might add one more if I think I can handle it - which is no guarantee itself!

Hopefully, two nights a week won't be enough to drive me insane, or drive Kim insane tackling both kids solo on those nights. At this pace, I should finish it by the end of 2008 - this should helpme catch up from taking the Spring off.

Actually, it's Bierfest, and it will be August 25th at Atlantic Station. For six hours.

We aim to please. Even if it is $30. I have no doubt, though, that the readers here who might attend would have no problem getting their money's worth.

Don't let me down now.
