Well how do you like that, there are poker bloggers! And I just had to discover them 2 days too late to participate in the the Grublog Poker Classic, an online tournament for poker bloggers. Oh well, better late than never, right? That’s right, in addition to being a heathen infidel who promotes gay marriage and godless EVILution, I’m also a degenerate gambler. Well, a degenerate poker player anyway. Up till now I’ve not blogged much about poker, other than to congratulate Paul Phillips on winning the Bellagio Five Diamond Classic.
Poker is suddenly the hottest thing on television. The Travel Channel shows the World Poker Tour, hosted by the stiff-handed Mike Sexton, the incredibly annoying Vince Van Patten (who did he screw to get that job?) and the stunning Shana Hiatt. Bravo has Celebrity Poker Showdown hosted by the very funny (though not on that show) Kevin Pollak and Phil Gordon, legendary gambler and fearless leader of the infamous Tiltboys. And ESPN is constantly showing the reruns of last year’s World Series of Poker. For longtime poker players like me, this is a great thing as it brings more people into the card rooms. I’ll explore the other poker blogs and add links to the ones I really like. And I’ll probably start blogging more about my other avocation.
