First Things First
I lost my first wager of the weekend 9 hours before I even left for Vegas. I lost my last six hours before heading home. In between, I dropped a grand to bloggers at the poker table, $250 on dice, a buy-in at roulette(!?), a Benjamin on blackjack (within 15 minutes of my arrival), two weeks' pay at various bars, a well-conceived, but ultimately feckless bet on France and the price of a medium-range hooker on cab rides.
I'd have paid double just for the pleasure. Not the hooker. The bloggers.
Every time I go, it gets more and more difficult to write it up. So here I sit, festering ideas and gaps in memory plauging me. Therefore, I give you something even more important for now, my old friends, ones I just made and my invisible internet stalkers. After all the bad I done this weekend, it's time for some good. I encourage you all to join me.
FOR PEYTON CHARITY AUCTION HAS GONE LIVE!!!
As many of you know, Bobby Bracelet has been on a mission to help a young girl named Peyton, whose mother passed away recently from small cell ovarian cancer. Many people have stepped up during this process to lend support. Gavin Smith, World Poker Tour Player of the Year, has worked very hard to generate a buzz within the poker community. Gavin has gone above and beyond the call of duty, even spending enough quality time with Phil Hellmuth to persuade him to donate. That is what I call dedication. Jason “Spaceman” Kirk has used his connections in the media to gather donations and turn Card Player Magazine on to our exploits. Shelly Hokanson designed, and continues to manage, ForPeyton.com. She has the worst job since Bobby Bracelet is a prima donna who can’t seem to ever make up his mind about things. I could continue on, but needless to say there have been many more who have helped along the way.
