Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics

I can't feel my legs.

It's going to take me a few days to distill everything into a coherent narrative (or as coherent as I can be), but here are the numbers from the weekend:

Soccer games played: 4
Soccer games won: 0
Soccer games drawn: 2
Goals scored: 1
Goals against: 4 (nice defense, at least)
Number of players present for kickoff on Sunday at 9 a.m.: 6
Blackjack hands played: 0
Craps bets made: 0
Football bets placed: 0
Poker hours logged: 13
Hours of sleep: Less than 13
Profit from poker: $291

I had extreme gambling tunnel vision. I finished up $200 on Friday night after a marathon session in the Excalibur 2-6 game. And I was loathe to give any of it to the house on the -EV games BECAUSE I WORKED SO GODDAMN HARD to win it. It was easily the most rewarding poker session of all time. Not just that I won, or that I was pleased with my play, or that I didn't suffer a single suckout, but I had a table full of some very fun people (including a couple guys in the midst of a Bachelor Party who had me in stitches much of the evening). In addition to those guys, we had some uptight folks with whom to verbally spar, including a young Asian lady who demanded a seat change less than 2 minutes after sitting down.

Details to follow...

Happy MLK, you lucky SOB. You're in Vegas (actually, you're probably home now, but whatev), I'm at work.

Looks like Billy's celebrating by trading a whitey (Byrnes) for a blackie (Cameron). ||spitz|| rejoices.
