Just Another Manic Monday

It’s Just another Manic Monday! Well this is the first installment of my Manic Monday Posts. I have decided to come up with themes for each day of the week and try and change some things up on this Blog of mine. Manic Mondays is gonna try and brighten up those that tend to get a “Case of the Monday’s”. It is my hope that this will brighten up your Monday Just a Lil Bit.

With Monday’s typically being the hardest day of the week to get motivated and feeling great especially if you are an individual like myself that tends to giver pretty good on the weekends, and I know exactly what you’re feeling on these fine Monday mornings. I spend my Sunday’s laying in my buddies basement all goddamn day (recovering from Friday and Saturday nights) and when I wake up on Mondays I feel like I haven’t slept in a fucking week. Although I am up at 6:15 and I head for the gym for a nice session of pumpin weights no matter how shitty I feel. Trust me there are some days where I just want to lay in bed and not get up, but that’s where the motivational factor comes in to play and I force myself to get up and get my ass into the gym. That was the case today for The Kid.


Did you frequent the bars this weekend? I sure as hell did as there was a pretty big bash on Friday night at this bar in Toronto called the Crystal Room. We were there for a fine ladies birthday and the entire crew made their presence. The festivities saw a shit load of alcohol consumed, a ton of laughs and there was a rapping session that was pretty sick and it could be coming to your local radio station in the near future (look out for the kid featuring Fritz Dawg). With the amount of alcohol consumed I don’t have to explain too much but I did spend the majority of my Saturday curled up under the blankets in one of the best chill sessions of all time. The kid definitely needed it and enjoyed it!

When you are at the bar there are a lot of sayings that go on and I’m sure a lot of them have hidden meanings/messages behind them. I’m sure you probably heard a few of these over the weekend. Here’s a list of some sayings and what they really mean:

"No, really, I'm OK to drive."
--I'm wasted, and I am too embarrassed to have anybody see who I am going home with.

(ah looks like someone busted out the beer goggles)

."You get this one, next round is on me."
--We won't be here long enough to get another round.

"I'll get this one, next one is on you."
--Happy hour is about to drafts are a dollar, but by the next round they'll be $4.50 a pop.

(Cheap son of a -----)

"I haven't seen you around here for a long time."
--You stuck up little -----, too good for your old friends??

"Hey, where is that friend of yours?"
--I have no interest in talking to you except as a way to get your attractive friend into a compromising position.

"Lets get out of here."
--I just dumped a half a pitcher of beer into that Harley guy's helmet.

"Ever try a body shot?" (female to male)
--If this is how wild I am in the bar, imagine what I'll do to you on the ride home?

(Personally haven’t heard this one, but I’m definitely intrigued)

"I don't feel well, let's go home." (female)
--You are paying more attention to your friends than me.

"I don't feel well, lets go home." (male)
--I'm horny.

"Who's got the next round?"
--I haven't bought a round in almost 3 years, but I am an expert at diverting attention.

"Excuse Me." (male to male)
--Get the f--- out of the way.

(I’m sure we’ve all heard this one before)

Any of these sound familiar! I’m sure you guys have heard these before and if you didn’t know what they meant, well now ya do.


What is a weekend without a Poker Party? Well there was definitely a poker party in good ol Phril’s basement yesterday. My buddy was feeling it as he was playing on Pacific Poker and he was cleaning up almost every Sit ‘N’ Go there was. Unfortunately I didn’t play any poker this weekend as I took a little bit of a break but I’ll be all over Partypoker (use the bonus code 20BR on party poker) tonight though. Hey Phril, when are the goddamn Raptors gonna win there second game. Could it be tonight? I guess we’ll find out. Hey Shep are you reading this? If you are “oh they spinnin” bud, why don’t you crack open a Steveweiser and guzzle one down one time for the kid. Cheers!

Some Random Tidbits

Phil Ivey had a tremendous week of poker in the glorious Monte Carlo. Not only did he take home the $1 million dollar Monte Carlo Millions tournament he promptly followed that up by winning the live Fox Sports Net event. That netted him an additional $600 thousand dollars. I’m sure he’ll be enjoying himself with all that extra cash hangin around.

Man do these poker players get to see some unbelievable places. I mean Monte Carlo has got to be one of the best places in the world to visit. That is if you can afford it. I definitely wanna check this place out at some point in my lifetime.

"A view of Monaco in the Evening"

Poker Room has introduced a great idea for those that like team events. Well this is the first one of its kind in the online variety as they have launched a team tournament feature. Teams can consist of five to ten players and compete against other teams from around the world.

"Teams are established by a Team Manager and can participate in Team Leagues - a series of tournament rounds where several team members play simultaneously in each round. Members can also battle it out for lucrative cash rewards in Team Eliminators, which are tournaments played out in teams."

"Team Eliminators, on the other hand, offer a different twist to online poker. The Team Manager assigns one player to go up against a member of the opposing team. The winner of the match and his team then proceed to the next round, continuing until only two teams remain to go head-to-head for the title. The top teams will share the prize money generated by the total number of team buy-ins, depending on the payout structure."

I think this truly is a great idea and I'm gonna put a team together for sure. It just adds a little different flavor to poker and it could definitely set up for some great ideas down the road.


Well that's it for this post so thanks for stoppin by!
