New Moon, UFC 106, and The Blindside

This weekend was one of the best I’ve had here in Vegas.

It started out on Friday. Andrew and I met up with a few friends from Card Player and played drinking games… Ahh makes me miss college. (We played Ef the Dealer and Bull Shizer Pyramid. Alex got Effed, and Fast got pwned.) Afterwards […]

Poker Forums and Me- Yep, I went there

I contemplated, I deleted, I rewrote, I deleted, and then I grew some balls to actually make this blog post…

Ok, I didn’t really grow balls, but you get the point– this entry was really hard for me to write, but oh well, here goes.

When I took the job as a Card Player TV reporter, […]

Lucky With Cancer, Lucky to Have Insurance

"Cancer... turns out, not so hilarious," Samantha Jones- Sex and the CityIn case you don't know me very well, I love me some SEX AND THE CITY!!! I've always wanted to be just like Carrie Bradshaw and wear cute shoes, have great friends, and write for a living! I love watching the characters go through the most awful and awkward sexual escapades (since my sexual escapades are always suave, romantic, and made for the movies :) I kid, I kid). On serious note though, in one episode, Samantha Jones (the older, promiscuous character) is diagnosed with breast cancer. To deal with traumatic news, she attempts to joke about it, and act lighthearted about the matter, but in the end, she realizes the seriousness of the issue, and says, "Cancer... turns out, not so hilarious." I became very aware of this fact in June of 2006.


For the past five days, it feels like all I’ve done is play poker, and work, and I’m exhausted. It started on Sunday, the day after Halloween. Pshhhh I was hungover like a mutha effa. Andrew, Tony, and I crawled into Buffalo Wild Wings at 10 a.m. to watch the Cowboys play (thank goodness […]

Sorry I haven’t been updating my blog in the last couple of weeks. I’ve been so busy! I was covering the Bellagio Festa Al Lago main event and the Caesars Palace Classic for work which took a ton of time, and if I wasn’t working, I was logging in hours playing poker at […]

He’s a tournament reporter for Card Player, News Views and Gossip expert, host of the Online Zone, die-hard Gators fan, and Mr. “I can’t be wrong about ANYTHING.” He is also going to be the gracious host for a Halloween Party on Saturday that I am SOOOO freaking excited […]

I Love Sexual Innuendos

I’m not gonna lie, I often have my mind in the gutter. I’m always the first to point out sexual innuendos in someone’s statement.

Someone says,  “Ugh, this breadstick is hard!” — (I snicker, and say that’s what she said)

“It won’t fit” — (I’m all like, hayyy yoooo)

“I have to see the doctor” — (YOU […]

I’m in my mid-twenties

So, I’m officially in my mid-twenties.

I have about a half an hour left in my 24th birthday, and I must say, this “Birthday Weekend” has been pretty awesome. On Friday night, a bunch of my friends and I went to Musashi for dinner. If you haven’t been there, you have to go! It’s a […]
