Just Like LJ, But Different

So last night LJ lost to Waffles HU after coming back from the Mets game to find only 435 chips or something. Nice comeback.

I also lost to Waffles (because ultimately, we all did, chew on that) in a similar style.

See, I was wide awake and changing out of work clothes to a more comfortable jeans and t-shirt combination. For some reason I decided to lie on my bed. This was around 7:30-7:45. The next thing I know, I'm stirring awake and looking at my clock - 11:17!! HOLY SHIT I'M LATE FOR WORK! Then my brain wakes up the rest of the way and realizes the TV is on and it's dark outside. It's 11:17pm and I'm just really late for The Mookie. I roll out of bed and scramble to the computer. 160 chips left, blinds 80/160/25. Next hand gets dealt and I have T8o with 135 chips. I instacall Tilt Away's raise and find myself HU against AQo. Nobody improves, and I lose. 38th place I think. I was really hoping to make an epic comeback, because that would be awesome.

I then grew pissed off that all the other stuff I wanted to do before the game didn't get done. Now that has to happen tonight.

I also lost the over-under bet against Meanhappyguy (who's really angling to be my nemesis it seems) on when the Waffles-LJ HU would end. So now I can't talk about food for a week here. Shit, I just did. But it wasn't the subject... the bet was. Whatever. Expect plenty of Jays and NHL Playoff coverage until next Thursday.

Speaking of - Jays blew it in the 9th last night. Why do we have such a hard time against Oakland? If the Jays pull another year of "beat the big guys, lose to the worse teams" I think I may beat someone. It's okay, it's still early.

Playoffs have kicked off. I'm near the top of my office pool, and also at the bottom. Yay multiple entries. Maybe I can actually get stuff accomplished tonight and watch some of the games. I did catch the end of the Flames-Sharks game. As predicted, Calgary won. The Sharks seem to be the big favourite this year, and I don't think they'll make it out of the first round.

Riverchasers tonight. Back to NLHE doublestacks I think.

I hope the interview went well.

I assume you didn't see last night where the Sharks once again dominated... but this time actually won.

Sharks all the way baby!
