Mansion Steelers Promo-Please comment
If you are reading this, I want your opinion.
If the $1100 required for this promotion represented your entire online bankroll, would you do it?

I ended up getting down to the bar for the Monday night tourney for the first time in a while. It was a raining, crappy night, so football practice was a little shorter than normal, which gave me enough time to get there before the break. I ended losing a couple races though and was out within a half hour. I had something to eat, hung out with some people for a while and then made it home a little past 10pm. What better time than to fire up Party Poker right?
Good Monday morning. I guess. I have about an hour before I go off to meet with HR at the possible new place. Figured I could pound something out quickly, since this place is a ghost town before 9am anyway, never mind on Monday.
TGIF. Really. This has been a long week and I am looking forward to my weekend. I talked to HR at the new place yesterday and I set up a meeting with them on Monday morning to discuss details of a possible change. I was hoping to get that taken care of this week, but I will have to suffer through the weekend not knowing one way or another yet. I wish I wasn’t so impatient about things like this. Anyway, I should have a much better grasp on this after that.
Still waiting to finalize the new job situation, but it is looking good. The old boss called me yesterday and said the HR person would call me today to set up a time for me to come in and talk to her about everything. Grrr. I am so impatient. It is hard for me to concentrate on my current job knowing that I am probably leaving.
Thanks to everyone for the comments about the 200 posts. Glad that, for whatever reason, some people find the crap I spew out on here somewhat interesting (?). Maybe like a train wreck or something. Anyway, I appreciate it, just like the support when I started talking about Crazy Neighbor. And yes, I do have more on that.
Wow, lots to catch up on since the last time I really posted, Thursday morning, when the crazy neighbor pissed me off. In no particular order, here goes…
First off, thanks to everyone that left a comment on my personal tilt post from yesterday. People are really whacked out sometimes.
This has nothing to do with poker, but I am on personal tilt right now, big time.
Thanks to anyone that signed up for PokerSavvy using my link. I ended up gathering some points, as people completed promotions, and was able to score a few necessities this weekend with those points. If you have not already done so, sign up and take advantage of the Mansion promo, which is still running. I detailed it out a while back, and if you didn’t have the time then, take advantage now. You won’t be disappointed (and neither will I).
Yup, I blew it. The tourney went just like I expected. Well, the turnout did at least. There were only 31 people there. I only needed to get in the top 16 to move on to the state tourney and I blew it.
Since my brief poker night sucked last night, going out quickly in 2 45 SNGs, I figured I would go in a different direction today. Some random items that I have mentioned before that need some updates. Oh yeah, I know you were wondering so…
Football practice was relatively boring last night. After we ran the kids, we got the line in one group and the backs in another group. I helped teach the backs the formations we are going to run out of, and we went over some of the play wording for when they will be in motion. Finally, we went through 3 of the 29 plays we currently have in our playbook. I doubt we will end up using all of them, but at least we have started to get them used to everything.
Welcome to my newly minted Football coaches blog. Just kidding, but no poker for me last night. By the time I got home from practice, ate dinner, and got access to the laptop, it was too late to play anything. I didn’t even update the 45 SNG Challenge scoreboard yet today, and won’t be able to until tonight because I can’t get at hotmail from work. For those of you interested, I think Jordan scored some points and that was all I saw come through that would change anything in the points.
We had a 3 hour coach’s practice last night where we talked about each kid’s strengths and weaknesses. Who we thought would be an attitude problem, who we thought would be getting the minimum number of plays each game, and who we thought would be starting. We also talked about the offensive plays and the defensive schemes. I have a whole lot to learn about football. It’s pretty cool. I just hope I can get it all sunk in before I have to start explaining it to the 9, 10 and 11 year olds.
Well, the good news is that the doc did some x-rays and didn't find anything structurally wrong. The bad news is, not sure about the source of the pain. He said they get it all the time and it could be from the cleats. Those damn things weren't cheap either man.
Hope everyone had a nice weekend. I did. The weather here was beautiful, sunny without any humidity. It was great. We had football practice Friday and Saturday but we are skipping today so we can have a full 5 days in pads this week. We will be practicing from Tuesday through Saturday again. The team looks pretty good. Like I said before, I don’t know as much as I should about football but the head coach is really excited about how the kids are picking up the blocking schemes and the backs look pretty fast and sure handed so we will see. I am going to be working on the offensive side with another guy and the coaches are meeting tonight to review the kids and get me up to speed on the plays, etc. There is a lot more to learn coaching football I am finding. That is fine with me because I love doing it.
First off, thanks to everyone that stopped by and to everyone that left a comment on yesterday’s meandering post. Again, I wasn’t expecting that to be what I wrote about yesterday, but I am glad it evolved from a “whiney, poor me” post, to a “I appreciate what I have” post.
Let me apologize in advance for this drivel that you may choose to continue reading. I am writing this after I have finished the post, since I didn’t really realize this was the direction I would be taking today. I guess that is the beauty of a ghey online journal. A random soul dump every once in a while. Ok, on to the drivel…
382. That is the number of unread posts I have in my Bloglines account. That is a lot of catching up. It is going to take a while.
