QUOTE OF THE DAY
Vote for Freddy Ferrer: He’s not like Mike. He’s more like you.
Why he isn’t plastering that slogan everywhere, I’ll never know.
MOM SAYS ALITO IS AGAINST ABORTION
Meanwhile, if I were nominated for the Supreme Court and some reporter showed up to my mom’s door asking questions about my views, she’d tell them to leave her the hell alone.
You know, not everybody has a body like you.
KAROL’S GIVING AWAY FREE AD SPACE FOR ANYTHING AT ALL
Of course, for the right price someone could also have my free ad space for the week. Place bids in comment section.
Anybody else working late to avoid being annoyed by trick or treaters?
Huh. Is that the first step to curmudgeonhood or one of the middle steps?
UMMM…CLASSIC HOMER SIMPSON PART DEUX
A pastor performing a baptism was electrocuted inside his church Sunday morning when he adjusted a nearby microphone while standing in water, a church employee said.
The Rev. Kyle Lake, 33, was stepping into the baptistery as he reached out for the microphone, which produced an electric shock, said University Baptist Church community pastor Ben Dudley.
HOW WOULD YOU PLAY IT?
My wacky last hand of the night has been replaying in my head all morning:
I’m dealt pocket eights in early position.
I raise four times the BB.
Ugarte, on the button (I think…) calls.
Ron Lad (Karol’s brother) goes all-in for a little more than four dollars.
He had been playing crazy all night (calling my pocket sevens with like 86o) and I think he wanted to go home.
So, I think long and hard, but make the call.
Unfortunately, I did all my long and hard thinking out loud, so Ugarte also calls.
Flop comes rainbow J 10 and one undercard…maybe a four.
I check, button checks.
Another J comes on the turn.
Ugarte thinks and thinks and then bets out a quarter of the pot.
I am so about to fold when something — I think F-train calls it poker sense — tells me not to fold. Everything about the bet seemed designed to get me to fold.
But I know I can’t call…so, I stare straight at my chips and announce I’m all in.
I watch Ugarte count out the chips…then make like he was gonna fold…then go back to the chips…I can’t really tell if he had anything or he was on a draw, so I didn’t know if I was rooting for a call or a fold.
Finally, he annouces that he doesn’t think I have it and that he thinks his threes are good. He tosses in his call.
I flip my eights sooo fast!
Ron Lad moans “No…Daaawwwn,” and dejectedly turns over sevens.
Ugarte shows his threes and it’s all about that last river card!
THIS IS CLASSIC HOMER SIMPSON
A woman helping her husband launch his hot-air balloon was critically injured when her leg got caught in a rope and she was pulled up into the air and fell through the roof of a barn.
Kathleen J. Long, 53, of Phillipsburg, was in critical condition Monday morning at St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The accident happened Sunday in Bethlehem Township, New Jersey.
It was not clear how Long’s leg got caught in the rope. Witnesses say she dangled from it for a short time and passed through several tree tops before she was knocked off.
She then fell about 50 feet and crashed through the barn roof, officials said.
