A Tuesday Evening PokerParty Ramble Courtesy of the Kid
Well it's almost time for the biggest event of the year and no i'm not talking about Spring Training I'm talking about the Superbowl. This is gonna be the year of the bus and he is gonna steamroll the Steelers right through the Seahawks and start one hell of a celebration in the Motor City. Today was media day at the Super Bowl and it must have been one of the more boring events in years. The only trouble with these two teams being in the Super Bowl for the media is that there really are no outspoken individuals and therefore the reporters are not going to get good quotes. I'm all about the Super Bowl and this one has the makings to be a dandy let's just hope it pans out that way.
Man oh man is there enough poker on television nowadays. To add more poker to the tube the travel channel and WPT Enterprises have just announced a new television deal with the Professional Poker Tour. For those of you that don't know about the PPT here is a little something that will let you know what it's all about: "The PPT will pit 200 professional poker players against one another in invitational tournaments with huge pots and big action. Extensive qualification guidelines are in place to ensure that players invited to compete are strictly la crème de la crème of the professional poker playing world. Players can gain entrance to the league through the WPT, the World Series of Poker, or other distinctions including the Poker Hall of Fame. Each segment of the tour will award a guaranteed prize pool of $2.5 million. No amateurs or semi-pros will be featured on the PPT". This should be an interesting event, but christ do we really need more poker on television. I mean everywhere you look its poker this and poker that all it means to a guy like me is that there is going to be even more goddamn fish having a PokerParty at party poker. We'll see what happens here!
Alright, my maple leafs just lost another goddamn hockey game in a shootout. A shootout for those that don't know hockey is the worst way to end a fucking hockey game especially for a team that has a forty year goltender in between the pipes who is absolutely shit on penalty shots. Cmon Belfour save a goddamn breakaway for christ sake, our opposition netminder sure as hell doesn't have trouble saving our breakaways. So you can chalk up another loss for the blue and white even though they did play pretty well tonight.
I just noticed that Hooters is opening up a casino in Vegas. It is opening up this Friday (two days before Superbowl how convenient). I could only imagine the theme of this casino and I'll tell ya what i'm kind of curious to check this place out. Do you think this place is going to make a ton of money or what? Now they will give you free drinks all night long from there skankily clad waitresses and I wonder if the dealers are gonna be rockin those Uni's as well. This place is gonna make a killing as there is going to be so many drunk dudes in there losing all their hard earned money because they think at the end of the night they are going home with one of the hooters girls. Ahahahaha Suckers! Remember they are after your money they don't like you. It is the same as the stripper theory, they will play you and play you until you have no more money left. Anyways, my interest is piqued and i'm sure the next time the Kid gets to Vegas I'll be checkin it out. Who knows when that'll be as I probably should stay away for awhile as a safety concern for my health as I pretty much kill my liver when I'm there.
Oh yeah shit how could I forget don't forget the party poker bonus code 20BR the next time you are ready for an online PokerParty.

The Weekend is coming to an End
So Daniel Negreanu finally wins an event. Good for him! He has been going crazy of late with all of his promotions and off the table activities. Obviously he is a tremendous poker player and its good to see him making a statement on the felt again.
In other news my man Tiger Woods is back! Today he finished off Jose Maria Olazabal in a playoff and its great to see my man Tiger feeling it again, especially this early in the season. The Maple Leafs extended their losing streak to nine games now and this is getting flat out embarassing. Something really needs to happen to shake this team up. Like Christ Ferguson do fucking something. You're job is to put the best possible team on the ice and if this is the best you can do you gotta get your papers and get the fuck outta here.
Not too much going on in the PokerParty aspect of my life this weekend. It was a pretty quiet weekend although last night I was at a house party in the Tdot and I got completely annhiliated. We were doing a ton of shots (called Fireballs), and Jesus H. Christ did they get me going. All in all it was a blast and I was feeling the pain today let me tell you. I am not a nap person and today I might have slept the day away. Although I did get up to check out Tiger win that event and I'm watchin my Raptors play as we speak (or shall I say Type).
"I guess this jump really did scare the shit right outta him. The best part about this is that this is my buddy Shep who lives in Belfast! Shep Layoff the Fish and Chips bud!"
"I can't get enough of the George W. Bush Satire. What an ass clown!"
During one of my googling excursions I came across this new proposal that is being put forward in Vegas. Its going to be the Ultimate Sports Resort. This resort would be a $4 billion project and it would include a sports-themed hotel and casino with 5,500 hotel rooms, 10 nightclubs, a 26,000-seat arena, an aquatic center, and two casinos, one of which is to be nonsmoking. Centered around sports, it will also include indoor tennis courts, swimming pool, dive center, and air-conditioned driving range. This would be the sickest of the sickest. This would definitely be a must see and I can only imagine what the rates for this thing would be.
This blog was brought to u by the bonus code 20BR on Party Poker, so don't forget to plug her in there the next time you are having an online Pokerparty.

Some Kid Ramblings
Alright like what the hell is the deal with online poker. I mean yesterday I sat down and played five SNG's and I came up empty. Now I don't give a shit about that, but what I do care about is how it seems like I will get screwed every single time I play. Ya know what, in the last week or so everytime I have moved all in I have been the favorite in every single hand and then it comes down to either the turn or the river card and bammo, welcome to seeyoulaterville. Like fuck off! I get real fired up and I am almost considering shutting down online poker. Like this is getting past the point of ridiculous. At one point a couple of months ago I was cashing in almost everytime I played and now it's like I get in fourth place and somehow or another I keep getting screwed. I was on a hiatus and then I wanted to get back to playing and now I'm thinking of another hiatus. I am past the point of being frustrated with this goddamn game. Yeah for anyone who cares I have my pokerparty fix at party poker. If you want a bonus code and come take some of my money plug in 20BR when you get that chance.
What else is going on in the world of poker. Well my man Scotty "Wassup Baby" Nguyen won the WPT World Poker Open. This couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. I am a huge fan of this man as for those of you who have read my vegas trip recaps you'll know why. Congratulations Scotty on a job well done.
The word job just came up and that gets me on another little rant. Yes I am still looking for some work and for those of you that have asked I am not available for being your gigolo for a night. I don't mean to playa hate but yeah I am the kid but I ain't no gigolo. Haha. Ya'll can call up the Deuce Bigalow if you lookin for ya male gigolo. I can't believe I used that goddamn ya'll shit again, and I've been out of Alabama for like nine months. No offense to anyone who lives in Bama' but I'm glad I'm not there anymore. The main reason is because of the lack of things to do. I know Auburn and places like that are pretty good but when you set up shop in the capital of the state and the only place you can go out to is a bowling alley night club something has got to give. I'm gonna say it "That's Embarassing".
So our Toronto sports teams are having a rough go again, as our beloved Maple Leafs have now lost seven games in a row and that's the first time that has happened since 1997. Holy shit this pisses me off, we are supposed to be the hotbed and our team is this shit. We do have some significant injuries but still its time these boys stepped up and delivered on their promises. I'm still one hundred percent behind these boys but fuck they gotta win a goddamn game.
Now for the Toronto Raptors (or as my good bud the Cobster likes to call them the Craptors) just fired their GM Rob Babcock yesterday. Was this a good move some say most def while others are not sure about the timing and was this the right guy who should have been fired. The guy who needs to go is the CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Richard Peddie. This guy is an absolute Ass Clown who needs to get outta dodge ASAP. This guy has hired the Raptors GM and the Leafs GM and both of those hirings were mistakes. This Peddie character has done nothing to benefit both franchises in his tenure here and I can't believe this meathead still has a job. So I'll start up the FIRE RICHARD PEDDIE BANDWAGON. Cmon MLSE get your act together and get this fucking ass clown on the first train outta here.
Wow, I am all vented out and I haven't stopped typing yet. I love to vent on the keyboard as I typically don't vent out loud so this is my time to let it all out. I appreciate those that stop by and check me out, now tell your buds or colleagues to come and check out the kid's blog as there is some cool shit on here and it's only gonna get better. Thanks again and hey have a great weekend and to my boys Fritzdawg and the Cobster who are on a solid expedition, What's up and don't forget to have mad pizzints for the kid. Hey Shep you doin aiight over there in Belfast? Keep on rocking your Theo Fleury Belfast Giants jersey bra, that's fuckin solid.
Till next time, the kid is outta the hizzy!
Oh yeah don't forget the bonus code 20BR for PokerParty, whoops shit Party Poker!

Well I have been a busy dude of late trying to find a goddamn job that I like. I have had a few interviews now and I have been doing mad job shadowing and I have another job shadow tomorrow. Fuck, these companies sure put you through the ringers for these interviews. Take a look at this, tomorrow I am job shadowing from eleven in the morning till nine at night and I don't get fucking paid. We'll see if I enjoy this bad boy. Although the company seems pretty cool and there is potential to make some serious coinage but we'll have to see if the kid can dig the hours. Anyways, I have been trying to take my mind off being unemployed but it definitely sucks knowing I have zero money coming in and that means for some serious boring times, but fuck it I probably need a break from the gong show weekends anyways. This past weekend was a nice chill one for me as I did absolutely fuck all, I sat in my house and chilled and watched sports and in between that I was job searching. I wish there were other ways to find jobs instead of just checking out a few of those goddamn websites, all those jobs are from recruiting agencies. I have yet to find anything decent from one of those agencies.
I am still on hold from my PokerParty as I really haven't had the time to sit down and play mad games. Also, the fact that I've had enough of the bullshit at party poker and all those goddamn fish who have no idea how the hell to play poker and they just call anything then they beat you on the river. It's all bullshit! The time that I haven't either been on an interview or a job shadow I have been online trying to find more jobs or set up interviews. Oh Fuun!!
Here is some funny shit that I found. Check it out!
Things That Sound Dirty At Thanksgiving, But Aren't "Whew, that's one terrific spread!"
"I'm in the mood for a little dark meat."
"Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist."
"Talk about a huge breast!"
"It's Cool Whip time!"
"If I don't undo my pants, I'll burst!"
"Are you ready for seconds yet?"
"Are you going to come again next time?"
"It's a little dry, do you still want to eat it?"
"Just wait your turn, you'll get some!"
"Don't play with your meat."
"Just spread the legs open & stuff it in."
"Do you think you'll be able to handle all these people at once?"
"I didn't expect everyone to come at once!"
"You still have a little bit on your chin."
"Use a nice smooth stroke when you whip it."
"How long will it take after you stick it in?"
"You'll know it's ready when it pops up."
"Wow, I didn't think I could handle all of that!"
"How many are coming?"
"That's the biggest one I've ever seen!"
"Just lay back & take it easy...I'll do the rest."
"How long do I beat it before it's ready?"
Our favorite hockey team the Toronto Maple Leafs are fucking ridiculous right now. I can't believe how bad they are. For a team in the hockey hot bed to be this bad is real embarassing. There is sooo much money spent on this team and they just pack games in, in the second period. That is embarassing and something has to be done with these fools. The talent is there, the only problem is it was there five years ago when these guys were in their prime. Now they are so old and slow there is no way these guys are competing for anything this year unless they get rid of some of these veterans and bring in some young talent. The Stanley Cup is not coming here this year so it's time for Fergie to make some drastic moves and overhaul this goddamn roster.
Anyways, thanks for checking out the kid's blog and enjoy your experiences at the poker tables. Don't forget the next time you are looking for a pokerparty use the bonus code 20BR at Party Poker.

Alright well here I am in an exciting yet scary part of life. At the present time I am unemployed and that scares the shit out of me but on the other hand it's also exciting to know that I have an opportunity to really go out and figure out what the hell I want to do with my life. I think I already know exactly what I want to do (and it's not becoming a poker pro) and that is becoming an athletic recruiter. This is kind of a cool job and for me I think it is ideal. What I would do is go check out Student Athletes in High School's and get them ready for the next level (which would be a university/college athletic scholarship). I have played all kinds of sports and I have a knack for finding talent and I think this would be an ideal gig for the kid. Now the only problem is finding a company that has openings and getting hired. I think for me the hardest part is going to get that interview but I know once I'm in the interview I'll have a damn good shot at getting the job. Not that I'm great at interviews but when there is something that I really want and know about I can get the job done. So I'm pretty confident that I'll be able to come across something eventually. Hopefully sooner rather than later! Hopefully one of my fans who checks out this blog can hook the kid up haha. Not likely but I thought I'd throw it out there.
So these last couple of days I've been cruising the internet looking for jobs and fuck its hard. I mean most of the places I look send you right to recruiting companies. I don't want to know about the recruiting company I want to know what the company I might end up working for is all about. Does anyone else have a problem with this? Or is it just me?
Just in case you all are wondering I am still on my online poker hiatus. I have taken a bit of a beating of late on bullshit and I'm having a little boycott on the issue at the present time. I am sick and tired of getting fucking rivered and so I thought I'd take some time off from the Pokerparty and get back to it in about a week.
Reasons to allow drinking at work The below are valid reasons as to why drinking should be allowed at work. If you use them wisely, you may even be able to convince your boss into allowing alcohol.
1. It's an incentive to show up.
2. It reduces stress.
3. It leads to more honest communications.
4. It reduces complaints about low pay.
5. It cuts down on time off because you can work with a hangover.
6. Employees tell management what they think, not what management wants to hear.
7. It helps save on heating costs in the winter.
8. It encourages carpooling.
9. Increases job satisfaction because if you have a bad job you don't care.
10. It eliminates vacations because people would rather come to work.
11. It makes fellow employees look better.
12. It makes the cafeteria food taste better.
13. Bosses are more likely to hand out raises when they are wasted.
14. Salary negotiations are a lot more profitable.
15. If something does something stupid on the job, it will be quickly forgotten.

Daniel Negreanu Canadian College Poker Championship
Daniel Negreanu keeps on making headlines and new promotions to get keep furthering his name in the game of poker. His latest promotion is to find the Best Canadian College Poker Player. This new event is an online Texas Hold’em event which will take place on Fullcontactpoker.net. This event is only open to Canadian College/University students and the winner of the event will receive a bursary to cover their school tuition. What a great idea! Here is the format of the event:
Beginning in January 2006 Full Contact Poker will have 16 weeks of online qualifying tournaments where the top three finishers from each week will advance to the “Online” semi-finals which will be played sometime in March. The top 48 players (Top three from each of the 16 qualifiers) will then play in the semi final online event. These 48 will play until there are only 6 participants remaining. The game will then stop with your exact chip counts being registered. These final 6 will be flown into a city in Canada to play a live internet broadcasted final table until Full Contact Poker can crown the Daniel Negreanu Canadian College Champion. At the present time Full Contact Poker is in negotiations with Television networks to broadcast the event on Television.
Once a champion has been crowned the winner will then take on Negreanu heads up and play for an additional scholarship. If Negreanu wins the heads up battle he will then donate those funds to a charity of his choice. The best part about this event is that it will cost students exactly zero dollars to enter. So for you Canadian college students don’t miss out on this glorious opportunity.
Staying with the poker theme, another major poker tournament has been announced and it is the Heavyweight Championship of Poker. The inaugural tournament's main event will have the largest buy-in of any major poker tournament in the history of poker, with competitors spending over $100,000 to enter in the event. Here is the breakdown of this major event:
“The main event will offer an estimated prize pool of $10 million, with a first place payout of $5 million. Participation is limited to 100 players, 40 of whom will buy-in directly while the remaining 60 will qualify through satellite events held in poker venues across the United States. Apparently, almost all of the 40 direct buy-in seats have already been filled by professional players. Negotiations to televise the event are currently underway, though no other details have been released. The most unique aspect of the HPC is that the champion will be required to defend their title against any challenger after holding it for just three months. The challenger will be required to pony up $1.12 million for the chance to compete heads-up against the champ, while the champ will put up a $1 million match fee (withheld from his original HPC winnings). The winner will take home the $2 million prize purse, and the loser will be awarded a free seat at the next HPC. Challenges are expected to take place at least once every thirty days up until one month before the next Heavyweight Poker Championship is scheduled.” I tell you what this looks like an event that is going to be awesome to watch. An actual Heavy Weight Champion of Poker is going to be declared. I love the challenge idea and the boxing format. I wonder if players are going to start having managers and then holding press conferences. Is there going to be way ins? Just kidding but I could see this tournament taking a major spin into different directions. There really is a lot of things that could be done with this tournament. It will definitely be interesting to follow and see how it unfolds.
Check out this pokerparty and don't forget to use the bonus code 20BR the next time you play at party poker.

New WSOP Event and a PokerParty
Here we go again with the bad runs on party poker. Last night I decided it was time for a pokerparty so I set up shop in my office and I was going to play for two hours. As you all know by now I love my SNG’s so I signed in and away I went. I’m starting to get real annoyed with this crap now as it just seems that I continually get screwed on the river. I finished in fourth place three straight times. Everytime I was all-in with a high pair and in two of those times a guy hits a runner runner flush to knock me out. I was getting real pissed and I’m startin to really wonder about this crap. I was the short stack but only by a little bit, I had just under a thousand chips and one time I had pocket aces and the next time I had pocket kings and a king came on the flop. So I had a set of kings and a guy called me all-in with the J8c. Great call! And he ends up hitting three goddamn clubs to knock me out. I couldn’t fuckin believe it. Needless to say that I played in five SNG’s and didn’t get in the money on any of them. I feel like Phil Hellmuth right now, bitching about my losses and claiming to have played great poker but I did play the right way and just got shit luck. Eventually it’s gotta come around again and I’ll be back on the winning track. At least I hope so!
Harrah’s Entertainment Inc. has added a new event to the mix for next year’s World Series of Poker. This event is not a Hold’em event which will probably come as a nice surprise to the poker professionals. This event will have the single biggest buy-in for a professional poker tournament at $50,000. The type of format is H.O.R.S.E. This is a tremendously difficult game and it will take the best players in the world to win this event. For those that do not know what H.O.R.S.E. is, it is a game that demands players to compete in five different poker variations throughout the event. The games that will be played are as follows: No Limit Hold’em, Omaha, Razz, Stud, and Eight or Better. This will be an exciting event and this is the type of event that will show who is the best card player in the world. I’m sure people were getting a little frustrated when the schedule was released earlier and the majority of events were Hold’em. I know I am a huge fan of hold’em but the players want to play other games and this is a great move by the WSOP to add a brand new event. This will for sure create a buzz at this year’s World Series.
On a side note, the WSOP has also introduced a player panel. This is a great idea as well as it gives the players a podium with which they can express their opinions on and see if they can make the events more to their liking. The players that are on the panel are: Daniel Negreanu, Chris Ferguson, Scotty Nguyen, Jennifer Harman, Howard Lederer, and Robert Williamson III. The creation of the player’s panel is only going to help the longevity and popularity of the World Series of Poker. A great idea and it’s about time the committee looks to the players for some advice. I’m sure this group will come up with some tremendous ideas and ways to keep this awesome event the best tournament in the world.

Manic Monday and a Poker Party
First off, I just wanted to say that this pokerparty is being brought to you by the party poker bonus code 20BR.
Back from a nice long weekend in Ellicottville and I must say I had a blast this weekend. Unfortunately I didn’t get to hit the slopes up at all this weekend and the only real explanation I can give for that is because of the ruckus from the night time. The nights in Ellicottville are just Gong Shows. When we get together and decide we are going to giver, we fuckin giver. We had an awesome time at Maddigan’s and we met a bunch of cool people. Get this, if you go to Maddigan’s you can order a case of Rolling Rock and carry it with you throughout the bar. Now if this doesn’t represent potential for madness then I don’t know what does. All kinds of shit happened and it was definitely a trip you didn’t want to miss. Now the festivities were so crazy on the Friday night that some of the chiefs couldn’t handle another night of it and they had to bail and head home on a secret mission. As the crew says “That’s Embarrassing”! Well the Saturday night gong show was just as, if not crazier than the Friday night. Friday night started off with a bang with some of us playing a home poker game and a few of the other guys went off to the casino. The guys that stayed at the house and played poker got absolutely shit faced by the time it was time to go to the bar. That left the other chiefs who went to the casino with a lot of catching up to do. They definitely did there party in that category. Our boy PaulD caught up and then I’d say he surpassed everyone when he did his Forrest Gump impression by running home from the bar. He did a great job except for the few instances where he ran into a parked car and layed on the ground for about ten minutes, running into oncoming traffic (never a great idea), and then eventually getting pulled over by the cops and he and I almost, and I mean almost spent the night in the Ellicottville Drunk tank. It was definitely a sight to see. There was tons of shit that happened on the Friday night and our stomachs were hurting a ton from recalling the nights festivities on Saturday morning.
Saturday night was absolutely hysterical as well. The Crew got together and we did our annual Kris Kringle gift exchange and we watched the Wild Card Football Games and then we proceeded to the bar. The bar again turned into a solid night which led to a rough Sunday for most. In my case, I felt like shit because I was sick for a week leading up to this fest and then put my body through what I did it was only a matter of time before it says I’m shutting you down. And shut me down it did. I will definitely be taking it easy this week as its time to relax and get things back to normal. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love to party and everything but there are times where you just have to take it easy. That’s what I’m going to do.
So much poker on television these days! I watched Mike Matusow win a WSOP bracelet on the weekend. He knocked off Hoyt Corkins and Phil Hellmuth in a very impressive victory. Yesterday, I watched Tuan Le win the WPT Championship. Now this was awesome, I have never seen a guy win and lose on the river so much in a final table as Tuan Le. He was going heads up for so long and it just seemed that every crucial hand was won on the river. Definitely a made for television event.
I didn’t get that much poker in at all this weekend. I did though play in the Friday night game in Ellicottville and I finished in second place. I played pretty well this time around and at times I was hanging on for dear life. I was the short stack with five players left and I just kept plugging away and I was playing real aggressive. Playing aggressive and stealing blinds and then waiting for that one big hand to go all-in is what got me into second place. When I was going heads-up I went all-in and if I win this hand I win it all. I had AJo and my buddy had a pair of twos. I put him all-in and he calls and his pocket two’s stand up. I didn’t get mad but I don’t know how many times I’ve had a pretty good hand like AJ or AQ and don’t win. It’s kind of annoying but shit happens.
I’ll end off today’s post with a little bit of humor:
10 Husbands, Still a Virgin A lawyer married a woman who had previously divorced ten husbands.
On their wedding night, she told her new husband, "Please be gentle, I'm still a virgin."
"What?" said the puzzled groom.
"How can that be if you've been married ten times?"
"Well, Husband #1 was a sales representative: he kept telling me how great it was going to be.
Husband #2 was in software services: he was never really sure how it was supposed to function, but he said he'd look into it and get back to me.
Husband #3 was from field services: he said everything checked out diagnostically but he just couldn't get the system up.
Husband #4 was in telemarketing: even though he knew he had the order, he didn't know when he would be able to deliver.
Husband #5 was an engineer: he understood the basic process but wanted three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the-art method.
Husband #6 was from finance and administration: he thought he knew how, but he wasn't sure whether it was his job or not.
Husband #7 was in marketing: although he had a nice product, he was never sure how to position it.
Husband #8 was a psychologist: all he ever did was talk about it.
Husband #9 was a gynecologist: all he did was look at it.
Husband #10 was a stamp collector: all he ever did was... God! I miss him! But now that I've married you, I'm really excited!"
"Good," said the new husband, "but, why?"
"You're a lawyer. This time I know I'm gonna get screwed!"

Canada is the Ultimate Hockey Nation
Oh Canada! Our home and Native Land! Well that was the theme song last night that was sung all over the country as Team Canada won the Gold Medal in the World Juniors for the second straight year. What an awesome feat it was. The best part about it was this time the tournament was played in Canada and the kids actually got to celebrate with the home crowd. Going into the tournament Team Canada was definitely not the favorites, in fact it was mentioned that if they got a bronze medal that would have been a solid tournament. The pre-tourney favorites were the Americans and the Russians. Well I’m sorry to tell ya that the Canadians kicked both their asses. The Americans got serenaded by the Canadian crowd last night to the tune of OVERRATED! OVERRATED! I loved it. The American kids came in so cocky and they left with a bag full of nothing. They had a great hockey team but you all have to remember Canada is Hockey Nation and we proved it again last night that we are untouchable on the ice. Oh Frucks Yeah!
Well in a few hours from now I’m gonna be on my way up to the nectar chalet in Ellicottville. I can’t wait to get there and crack open that first beer. A bunch of the crew headed up last night and I’m pretty sure they gaver pretty good so I don’t know what shape they are going to be in when the rest of us arrive but we’ll get em going again. All I hope for is that there is some snow up there so we can hit the slopes. There will be snow that was made but it’s definitely not the same as fresh powder. Especially for us snowboarders who are just learning it fuckin hurts a lot more to fall on ice and shit then it does on fresh powder. I must say I’m pretty stoked to get my ass over there. Hey Crew get ready for when the KidintheHizy opens up that door, even though I feel like shit I get some new found energy when I’m away with the crew. We’re gonna fuckin giver! There will definitely be a PokerParty goin on up in that hizzouse for sure and some mad beer pong. Christ, I haven’t played a game of beer pong since University so I’m definitely lookin forward to that. Also, its Wild Card weekend and I’m hopin the G-Men, the New York Football Giants come through and march on through the playoffs.

I don't know about y'all but christ some of these sound too familiar. Fuck I said Y'all again! I think I say that more than I say eh! Maybe I've been chillin in the states for too long. It's time to get back to my roots, eh!
One thing that drives me nuts is the infatuation with goddamn celebrities. You know what I don't really care what the hell they do for fun, or for that matter what they do at all. The only satisfaction I get from celebrities is watching them in movies or listen to their music. Other than that, Frankly I don't care. People will sit around and talk about celebrities like they know them for god sakes. Comon people get a grip on reality here. They are the same as you and me the only difference is they are on television and they have a shit load of money. Who cares! Just work your ass off and you'll have money too. There is so much hype on the what the Hilton Sisters did on New Year's. Nicky Hilton threw a PokerParty! Fuck i gaver so friggin hard it was unbelievable and I have some funny ass stories too boot. Guaranteed my New Years with my crew was more enjoyable than sitting around with Nicky Hilton. Although she is definitely nice too look at don't get me wrong, but I don't need to read articles and shit on what she did on New Years. You know what we have a PokerParty all the time and so does a lot of people. But this is a huge poker tournament because Nicky Hilton threw it. Who Cares!

After affects of a Poker Party; A new Hilarious Video for your viewing
After a long giver fest from the Christmas break, I, the kid (yeah that’s right the Kid) must say that I am still feeling the effects from it. Christ, who the hell invented getting sick anyway? Like seriously, why not just let us live life and enjoy it, instead of having to deal with a bunch of shit. I’ve got a goddamn head cold and I think I’d rather have the flu and just sit in front of the porcelain gods for about an hour and get rid of it and feel better. But no I have a goddamn cold and I feel like death. What’s up with that? It’s the worst because the crew is heading back up to E-Ville this weekend for Wild Card weekend, a little bit of boarding again, stops at the casino and there might be a little bit of drinking. Check that, a shit load of drinking (there are rumors of some beer pong). So I’m hopin that I get over this little funk in a fuckin hurry cause when the kid shows up in the hizzy its game over. Get ready for a twelve hour drinking fest crew. The kid will be ready to giver whether I feel good or not cause that’s how I roll and that's how we do.
Well last night I made a little stop at my good buddy Phril’s house to chill and watch our Raptors absolutely dominate the Orlando Magic. Now before I get outta control on the Raps talk I’m real stoked about how this team seems to be turning the corner and they are starting to mesh as a team and they will make a run for the eighth playoff spot. Yeah that’s right I said Raps and playoffs in the same sentence. It could happen! For a little Jovogaunch update he came back for the Christmas holidays and to our surprise he rolled in with his new family. He’s got a wife and a kid. Congrats Gaunch! If you have seen the pictures of the Jovo you know that he had some crazy hair, but the other night two of my good buds the FritzDawg and the Cobster took it upon themselves to convince the Gaunch to shave his Ragamuffin. So now he’s a bald dad hahaha (it looks sharp though Gaunch). Unfortunately we are not going to have the opportunity to giver with the Gaunch this weekend but don’t worry we’ll have another bender next weekend for his going away bash. Stay tuned if you want to hear some more crazy stories cause ya’ll (I can’t believe I busted out a ya’ll in a sentence, is that really a word) know how this Crew rolls.
I wonder how the Saugeen Stripper spent her Christmas holidays. I wonder if she got some new stripper clothes from her peeps this year. That poor girl must have had the worst Christmas ever, could you imagine having to show up at family functions and shit like that just weeks after your face was all over the internet and you are now known as the Saugeen Stripper. Hahahaha. Her poor parents must be so proud. Anyways I’ll send a happy new year out to the Saugeen Stripper and I look forward to more exploits from her in 2006. Hey if you guys want some Saugeen Stripper Gear you can get it right here (and the pics are here if you haven't seen them). Start up the new trend in 2006, who knows maybe you can entice someone in your dorm to do the same thing.
What would a blog post from the Kid be without a hilarious video. I would never in a million years do this but I’d love to see someone do it. Check it out, this is fucking hilarious.
Hilarious Video: Guy sets his ass on Fire (hit the play button and you'll see the madness)
So does anyone still believe in New Year's Resolutions. I have never really made any resolutions before and I am not going to start now. What I do know is that in 2006, I'm gonna continue to giver with my crew and keep on enjoyin life. When you think about it, this is what life is supposed to be about. Fuck all the bullshit, just enjoy yourself. That's a word of advice brought to you by the party poker bonus code 20BR and yours truly THE KID.
Until next time good luck at the poker tables and enjoy the poker party.

A New Year hopefully means more cake for the Poker Party Kid
I am looking to start catching fire with my online poker game real soon. It just seems that every time I get going I hit a bit of a snag and I end up right back to where I was. I’m trying to get past the hump and at the moment I am just struggling. One thing I have been noticing of late on Party Poker is that every time I am short stacked and I decide to go all-in with a good pair I have lost every time on either the turn or the river. This I’m sure is just coincidence but has anyone else noticed this happening to them. If you are short stacked at some point you have to double up and this is really starting to annoy the hell out of me that I can’t win a hand when I am the short stack. This is definitely killing my poker party buzz. I have been stuck just playing SNG’s for the longest time and if this keeps up I’m gonna have to start entering some tourneys and see if my luck changes from there.
I almost get the feeling that once I start getting on a roll and winning hands all of a sudden I get a bunch of shit cards in a row and then I start to get blinded. This pisses me off. I love when the blinds are up to like 100/50 or 150/75 and I’m in the big blind and I get dealt 82o. This has happened so many goddamn times its incredible. I know I’m ranting about this crap but its about time the kidinthehizy starts getting some cards and I can lay the smack down on the competition. I’m sure this is a period that every player goes through and its all about waiting it out, I suppose. We’ll have to see what happens.
As I’m sure most of you that actually read this blog of mine have come to know about me is that I love my random shit and jokes and pretty much fun stuff. So what would a blog post be from the kid without some random shit for you to check out. So I have put a list together of some random facts with some random candids for your reading pleasure. I’ve titled it Do you believe this shit or not?
Do you Believe this shit Or Not! 1. A pig's orgasm lasts for 30 minutes. -- Holy shizzit! Now for all my female visitors how does that sound. 2. A snail can sleep for three years. -- I know a few members of our crew would have no qualms being asleep for that long. Especially after a full night of givener that we have become accustomed to. 3. Americans on average eat 18 acres of pizza every day. -- Jesus H. Christ! Are you kidding me, y’all need to lay off the pie for a bit 4. Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. -- Could this be the new Jenny Craig way to lose weight? 5. Cat's urine glows under a black light. -- What else glows under a black light? 6. China has more English speakers than the United States. -- I’m gonna say that’s because a lot of folk speak that Redneck Language and it is definitely not considered English. 7. Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. -- Fair Enough! 8. If you fart consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb. -- I’m gonna say that there were a few cats on our last trip that could have made this possible. You guys know who I’m talking about. God! 9. It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. 10. Michael Jordan makes more money from Nike annually than all of the Nike factory workers in Malaysia combined. -- Something’s wrong with this picture! 11. More people are killed by donkeys annually than are killed in plane crashes. 12. One of the reasons marijuana is illegal today is because cotton growers in the '30s lobbied against hemp farmers, they saw it as competition. -- If they only knew what we know now! 13. Only one person in two billion will live to be 116 or older. -- Seriously, who the hell wants to live to be that old anyways. 14. Some lions mate over 50 times a day. -- Sign me up! 15. Starfish haven't got brains. -- I don’t think they are the only ones. 16. The ant always falls over on its right side when intoxicated. -- That seems to be a common theme with most chiefs in our crew. 17. The average human eats eight spiders in their lifetime at night. -- That’s fucking disgusting. 18. The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off. -- This is a little disturbing. Don’t try this at home! 19. The most common name in the world is Mohammed. 20. You share your birthday with at least nine million other people in the world.
There is some random stuff brought to you by the kid and the party poker bonus code 20BR. So the next time you are going to have a poker party don’t be afraid to fire up the kid an invite.

The Kid is back in the Hizzy
That’s right boys and girls as your man Eminem says, its “back to reality, oops there goes gravity”. After a long and I mean long two week break I’m back and I will admit I feel worse for wear than I did two weeks ago. Holy shit! I definitely like to party and all but this was flat out ridiculous. I mean it’s about time I learn I’m getting up there and the recovery time is not nearly as good as it once was and I really need to cut back on my fourteen hour drinking marathons. God! Idiot! At the time it all seems good but when I’m sitting at my desk trying to get work done and my head is all fucked up I need to look back and reflect on a few things. Like why in the hell do I do this to myself? I spent the Christmas break in Ellicottville with my boys and I’m pretty sure I left part of me there. I’m sure part of me is laying on the slopes somewhere (from my mad wipeouts on the board) and I know for a fact part of me was left at the bar (so many drinks). I went snowboarding for the first time ever this past week and I absolutely loved it. I’m not gonna lie, for those first timers be prepared cause you are going to fall on your ass, your face, your tail bone, your elbow at least a hundred times. I’m not shitting you on that one. I’m a pretty good athlete and there is not a worse feeling in the world when you are pretty good at picking stuff up quickly and then you struggle mightily at this one. Although the second time out I got a lot better and I can’t wait for the next time. Be prepared to feel the wrath of the slopes the next morning, cause it sure as hell doesn’t tickle, that’s for sure.
The givener factor over the holidays was flat out ridiculous. Put six guys in a new place with a ton of alcohol and see how fucking crazy it can get. Well we experienced this and then some. By the end of the night the six crazy Canucks were real gunned and we pretty much owned the bar. Two words for this night: Gong Show. We proceeded back to our chalet and the six of us continued to giver. Probably not the smartest of moves but we definitely had an awesome time. We felt the wrath of this night the next day let me tell you. Especially while we are still sleeping and the rest of the crew showed up with so much enthusiasm and here are six guys just laying around absolutely hurting. A bunch of us eventually got up and went snowboarding. I needed the fresh air and by the time I got to the slopes I felt awesome. It was definitely nice being out in the fresh air and not seeing any alcohol in front of me. It was a well deserved night off especially with New Year’s Eve being the next night.
New Years Eve always looks to be a crazy night but the only difference from a regular night that I see is everyone goes crazy for about a minute and a half and then its back to reality. It’s just an excuse to party and I have no qualms about that let me tell you. There were a total of seventeen of us from Canada that made the trip to E-Ville (yeah that's right seventeen people from Canada = Gong Show) and we were all stationed at the bar when the bell rang for ringing in 2006. The night was awesome, but for me there was definitely something missing. That special someone was unfortunately not there with me (insert shout out to Alex here: "Hey Alex")and I rang in the New Year solo. We definitely did this night up the right way with mad beers, mad shots, some RBV's (really though what would a night of drinking be for the kid without my customary RBV's) and some more beers. The festivities wrapped up at around four in the morning but not before some unnecessary drama. All in all a great night was had by all.
Now that the holidays are over it is definitely back to reality. Time to get back on track and take care of business! Well over the holidays I definitely found a new hobby; (and I’m not talking about drinking cause I’ve had that one for quite awhile now, not rapping cause that has been around for awhile as well LOL) Snowboarding. I am a huge fan of snowboarding and I can’t believe I didn’t get into this sport before. It is awesome! The Kid is real stoked for the next encounter with the slopes (or should I say Slizopes).
I know everyone wants to know how the Kidinthehizy made out with his poker party over the Christmas break? Well I am pretty much right where I was when I left. I had a real bad run for about three days and I was getting real worried but then I caught fire for about a day and that’s all I needed to get my account back on track. Also, if you were wondering I am not a part of DreamClown the chiefs that are taking on Negreanu right now. I’m hopin to build up my account to be able to take these guys on, so hopefully I’ll win a few more ten dollar SNG’s and I’ll be able to get up there LOL. Christ! These guys are taking a boatload of cash from Negreanu and at the same time talking down on him like he is a nobody. Even though these guys have been on a pretty good run of late i'll put my money on Negreanu to make a comeback on this clown posse. I wonder if these guys are the Insane Clown Posse!
Look out for the Kidinthehizy in 2006 it could be my year at the poker tables!
Well I hope everyone had a tremendous Christmas holiday and New Year bash and I wish everyone the best in the year 2006.
