Chargers Rock -- Can you believe that game?

My Chargers got themselves into quite a hole. They were down 28-7 at halftime. Did any of you see the game? They actually won 49-41. Can you f**&^'in believe that? When was the last time you saw a team give up 41 points and win. It was just crazy. And my man Philip Rivers really showed me something. He never gave up. It's heard to believe that this is his first year as a starter. He looks incredibly poised back there. On the last drive he scrambled out of the pocket and threw a shovel pass for a touchdown. Wow!!!!!!!!

LT continues to dominate and run for touchdowns. He added 4 more on Sunday. I think that makes 15 in the last 5 games. Amazing. Their defense looked pretty weak, but Cincinnati does have incredible firepower. If you would have told them that they would score 41 points and lose, they would have thought you were crazy. Hell, I would have thought you were crazy.

Go Chargers!!!!

ON THE POKER front, I didn't play much this week, but me and the boys had a little dealer's choice home game on Saturday night. Joe brought his friend from NY. Nice guy, but he was a maniac. He's an investment banker and has a lot of money and isn't afraid to put it at risk. It was common for him to play blind until the river. Even on the river he would often bet without looking as his cards and it worked great for a while. He would keep on putting us all in without looking. Now if you have a hand, sure you would call, but when you're facing a $400 all-in bet with middle pair, it's not as easy as it sounds. One time, Mike called him down with TPTK and the guy had flopped a set. Mike was sure that he looked at his cards, but I was watching I didn't think he did.

I caught him towards the end of the night. This time I flopped a set and did my best to make it look like I had nothing but had enough with his all-ins. It worked. He went all-in with nada after I made a potsized raise on the flop and I quickly called. He had nothing, but then turn brought a 3rd heart I was a bit freaked out since he had a heart and I didn't. The river brought a 4th heart and he started hooting and yelling but I realized that the board also paired and I now had a full house! Good fun indeed.
