A Pokerparty Lowdown

Is poker a sport? There have been a few stories and notions on this topic of late and as far as I'm concerned there is no way poker is a sport. I'm guessing that a lot of the premise on this idea stems from the notion that since poker is being televised on ESPN that it should be considered a sport. First off, there is absolutely no physical assertion being used whatsoever at the poker table and therefore it is not a sport. I'll admit mentally, that poker is right up there with golf as far as being worn down. But, that does not classify it as a sport. Really I don't see the big deal with it having to be classified as a sport. Like who cares, it is a game and you can throw a PokerParty whenever you feel like it.

Let's just enjoy the game of poker as we know it and don't worry about having to find a classification for the game. The professionals don't care about being called athletes and that's good because they are not. The only athletes in poker are those that come from a sports background and that's it.

Poker is a game, and its a great game but it sure is not a sport.

My novel has been released and yesterday was in the top 25% of books listed at Amazon.com. Not a bad way to start.

I am currently working on the second novel in this series and these are the three questions I need to figure out 1) who gets married? 2) who gets murdered 3) who comes out of the closet? Any suggestions as to who, and, more importantly, why?

Those of you wanting to purchase can do so by going to http://www.midnightbluenoon.com or searching for Midnight Blue Noon at Amazon.com.

What is it about? Publisher sez:

Breathtaking Alaskan women prospecting adventures with love in a society where they are outnumbered by men ten to one. A Boy Scout who smokes marijuana before lighting a classic Mercedes afire with his duct-taped victim in the backseat. A pet wolf who sneaks out to go drinking with Australians at an upscale hotel bar.

A Republican gubernatorial candidate who leaves the party because of its platform plank against bestiality. A criminal attorney who sports Armani le collezioni suits in a courthouse with no indoor plumbing.

Alaska is a strange and beautiful land, filled with strange and beautiful people. A state whose quirky nature is precisely revealed - and whose wily secrets are hilariously unconcealed - in this absolutely provocative book.

At once a murder story and a briliantly clever and exquisitely wicked travelogue, Midnight Blue Noon is crisp and exhilarating.
