When you know you are right…

Last night my wife and I were watching an old episode of Cash Cab that we had recorded on Tivo. We’ve been fans of the show for a long time, so we’ve seen most of the episodes. But, we were happy to find an episode had been recorded that we hadn’t seen yet. Off we…

Book Review: Crooked Little Vein

For some books it takes a couple chapters to catch my interest. For some it’s only a few pages. But Crooked Little Vein had me hooked on the very first page. Crooked Little Vein is the first novel written by Warren Ellis. But, this is hardly his first published work. He’s an award winning writer…

ECW / WWE Smack Down Wrestling

I’m almost embarrassed to admit the amount of fun I had tonight going to a live taping of ECW and WWE Smack Down Wrestling. As a kid I was a HUGE fan of wrestling. That was back in the days of Andre the Giant, Rowdy Roddy Piper, The Iron Sheik and some up and comer…

Two Types of Poker

On Friday night we went over to a co-worker’s house for a poker game. The host made some fantastic food, supplied some drinks and had invited enough people over that we could put together a 10 person tournament. As you may know, I have a fair bit of experience in running poker tournaments as we…
