Sunday Football!!!

This weekend I will be headed to Nashville Tennessee to watch the Tennessee Titans play the Oakland Raiders!! W00T!!
Is it wrong I will be cheering for the Raiders while sitting on the Titans side? :P
My mom had won the grand prize from a local contest here being held by the car dealership Pennyrile Ford. (and all she wanted was the 100 dollar wal-mart gift card). We get to stay in the Hermitage Hotel in Nashville.
We will be sitting in club level seats section 231 in the Titans Coliseum. It will be my very first live pro football game ever.. and probably my last. I can't justify spending 150 dollars or more on a single football ticket. Just me I guess. It will be a great experience, one I won't easily forget. Just one of those things I reccomend you do at least once in your life :) Go see a sport live :)
Whether it's football, baseball, hockey, or basketball.
Everyone should do it once.

Pokerstars Blogger Tour.

I just couldn't catch a break... I'd go up , and down.. then back up.. then I kept losing to a player named dead-money93.. who when I had Kings and tens took me out with his pocket Aces for Aces and tens.
So ended my very very brief journey into this blogger tour.
**cries** Oh , well.. at least I got hit on and got an email addy :)
I do hope they do this again so I can come back with a vengeance :)

World Poker Tour's Ladies Night III

Ok , so last night I was watching isabelle "No Mercy" Mercier, (from team and actress Jennifer Tilly on the travel channel play in the WPT's Ladies Night 3. Wow, what a game! These 2 ladies, and the other 4 ladies they played with are some of the finest players in poker. Ms Tilly is the 2005 WSOP Ladies Champion.They aired 2004's Ladies Night 2 just before this game, in which Ms. Mercier took home the grand prize. So this year she was playing as defending champ this time around. Sadly she just couldn't catch a card and ended up going out in 5th place just after "London" Gallagher, an amateur-qualifier and poker mom who bested 565 players to win her seat. 4th place went to Ms. Cecillia Reyes Mortensen. 3rd went to veteran Ms. Marsha Waggoner. At one point, Jennifer was the short stacked being sucked out against Mrs. Grinder's AK to Tilly's A6. She made a huge comeback though, bluffing hand after hand, taking out one player then another, then going heads up with Lily "Mrs. Grinder" Elviro. Now down to heads-up, Lily vs. Tilly, the two aggressive gamblers took turns pushing each other around with all-in bets. Finally, Ms. Tilly found J7 of clubs, she raised $200,000, and Mrs. Grinder, with T7spades, picked the wrong time to push back, going all-in over the top for just $120,000 moreThe flop came Qs-5h-2h, and then a Jh on the turn gave her the tournament title, rendering the river a meaningless formality. Jennifer Tilly, Hollywood actress-cum-poker champion, added a new title to her suddenly burgeoning list, as Queen of WPT’s Ladies Night 3.
It was truly a terrific game to watch. I just wish I could be like these ladies someday. Perhaps when my son is grown up and in college, I will move to vegas like I dream of doing and just go play poker :)

Wil Wheaton is sucked out.

Here is the Wils own post about how he got out of his 2nd WWdN tour.

5:35 PM - I'm all-in UTG with pocket eights. One caller, plus CJ who also pushes. I hope I'm in for a race here. Oh. No I'm not. CJ called me with KK. Can I crack Kings? No, there's a King on the flop. I go home in 54th. What a disappointing finish. I really wish I hadn't donked off those chips like a dipshit, but I had a LOT of fun, and now there's only one "wil" avatar at the table.

We had a lot of fun watching you Wil! I for one cannot wait till I am actually playing with teh WILS :)

Read more about it on Wils other Blog :

Favorite Wil Wheaton Moment

Well, I was just thinking and I am curious about when people who have seen Wil (normally I'd be calling him Mr. Wheaton, but Wil seems to not mind if you use his first name ) , the best moment they liked in his acting. this doesn't necessarily have to be a moment in Tv and Film, if you have had a personal experience, tell it!

My Favorite Wil Wheaton Moment :
Though he wasnt in the movie long, it was in the first part of Toy Soldiers, when Wil just grabs the terrorist's gun and just runs to the steps and gets blasted full of holes. (don't read anything into it please lol) But that was a great moment. He was so gung-ho! A perfect death scene. I just bawled.

What was your favorite Wil Wheaton moment? Tell me about it!

PokerStars Online Poker Blogger Championship!

I finally entered in the first ever PokerStars tournament for bloggers.
This is for the entire blogging community, or those who play poker and know about the tournament. It will be an exciting adventure. One reason I entered is on the off-chance I get to play with Wil Wheaton who is mentioned in my last post. Good luck to us all. If (or when) I lose, I will post all the excruciating details of my journey is this delightful event. :)

Wil Wheaton's Blog and Poker.

Ok. So I have been reading alot of Wil Wheatons blog WWdN (which is currently down but he has posted a temp blog here :, and it is just one of the best blogs on the 'net to me. Wil has many interests that are similar to mine, and he is an avid poker player that has quickly risen in the ranks with the top elite of poker gaming. While reading his blog, he mentions he can be found on, well since I had been playing poker online already on and (absolute is one of the best sites IMO)
I decided to check out pokerstars. I also have to admit, I am a Wil Wheaton fan
ever since Stand by me and other tv things I had seen him in and of course the deal on ST: TNG. It's not his former tv star status that draws people to his site,
it's his intellegence, and his charisma that enchants his readers.
We love hearing him talk about poker, and anything else that tickles his fancy.
I mean come on, how many former stars (in my eyes Wil always will be a star)
actually run their own blog site, and responds to its readers? REALLY???

I could go on and on about how great Wil is and how awesome his blog site is,
but all who read his site know that already. what was my point again?
Oh yea, well I have been playing on pokerstars now for awhile, and it is quickly becoming my fave place to play. I am hardly on those other sites anymore.. tho I still go to from time to time, because i like the set up.
But pokerstars is alot of fun, and its a chance to play with someone I had a crush on growing up who turned out to be one hell of a guy. Most of us still get star struck when we have a chance to even speak or see in person an icon we idolized in our youth, and I am trying to not let that get to me, because you don't want to come off as some stark-raving lunatic, or some creepy person.
Like OMG OMG OMG WIL !!!! lol. No, just being yourself, calm and just getting the opporotunity to say hi is blessing enough.
I am one of those people who am happy worshipping from afar. Yes I said worshipping lol. I enjoy the tv shows, I enjoy the movies, and that's as far as I am happy to go to seeing my favorite actors and actresses.
I have met several famous people and each one has been a pleasureable experience, from Vicki Lawrence, to Trace Adkins, to Aaron Neville to Kris Kristofferson. Its just nice going up shaking a hand, saying Hi, and getting a pic, autograph and hug. I am happy with that, or even if that never happens I will just enjoy seeing them on tv. What really gets me mad are the stalkerazzi.
I don't know how many americans think this way, but I do believe stars deserve their privacy. I do not want to know about their personal lives ( for the most part) . Ok I do wanna know who is dating whom, who married whom and things like that.. but it gets ridiculous. I don't want to see a pregnant Miss Federline, I don't wanna see a topless Diaz. I don't wanna see bony chicks,
or someone puking. To me, this ruins the allure of what these people do.
We pay them to entertain us. Let's enjoy their work and leave it at that.
Ok , I am rambling again, and when I start doing that it's time to take a break
but this is why my blog is called what it is called. I like to ramble and just say what pops into my head. I may not always be clear to others, but for me it makes total sense to myself, and it serves its purpose for me. this blog is for myself. others are free to read it even critique it, i don't care. ah.. well there i go again. but for now, I am very excited at getting to say hi to one of my childhood icons that i grew up with. it is something i won't forget.
so when I get the chance to buy into one of wil's poker tours, it will be a blast
(for me at least) ;) and again.. harsher penalties should be imposed on certain members of the paparazzi for certain things. sometimes they just go too damn far.
