Copy A Post

Since I suck at writing I thought I would use some of Iggy’s last post since it was so damn funny. Here are some of my favorite quotes:

But I really enjoyed talking to the bloody Gypsy brawler and he enjoyed having an insatiable ear tuned in on his vibration. He had endured a very rough life but was more proud than bitter. He loved history and music and fighting. A true Renaissance Man.

Ahhh…so many of the bloggers are some of the most interesting people I have met. I think of Otis and Pauly, there has to be times in private when they talk (or talk drunk like this past week) and just have to laugh out loud and piss their pants because they get to write about their hobby for a living. I mean think about it, they have turned their life’s hobby into a profession.

I wish that upon all people except for Al…he would die of a SOCO overdose...Nuff said.

So many bloggers actually have been able to do it, like the L.A. crew who all work for Full-Tilt now. It's crazy to read how I’ve seen all of their lives change. Now the Geek has got full-time employment!! I'm sure he spends it on Star Wars actions figures, but none the less, his work is one of his lifes hobbies.

There are no Mexican restaurants in Ireland.

I found this odd. This due in part to the fact that Mexicans hold Irish people in such high regard and in some places as heroes. A lot of people don’t know this but when the US – Mexico War took place many Irish took up arms on behalf of Mexico. Some places today you can still go to Mexico and find statues in honor of many Irish soldiers. It’s a fascinating story and here is a link: http://www.catholicculture.org/docs/doc_view.cfm?recnum=6030+
As most of you know I can cook my ass off…maybe I will open a Mexican place in Ireland.

Every fucking French person I met was a complete fucking asshole. I'm not joking.

I hate to take the side of Iggy on this one. But how hard is it to be nice to a small person? Especially a super cool small person. I don’t know, but I continue to hear this about French people. The odd thing is that I hear this from both nice people and assholes. I hate to pass judgment without meeting a person or people myself (yet, when so many people say it). For instance, many of my friends of color have said that they hate Boston because it’s so racist. I’ve had one small incident there, but other than that everyone was super nice in Boston…I enjoy visiting to be honest. Now I find myself in my cube dying to meet a French person today.

The next night in Dublin was crazy. My Dad and I went pub crawling and found a packed one showing the Chelsea - Liverpool match. More bliss.

Ahhh…Al and JoeSpeaker must be jealous…but to be honest, they are lukewarm fans.

I am officially the Jackie Robinson of Irish poker.

This has to be one of Iggy’s funniest lines of all time…well along with showing up to Fast Eddies then running out after Eddie started blastin’ rap music…too funny…please repost that story with picture.

O.K. this has nothing to do with poker…just stealing off other people’s blog and writing thoughts that come to mind…next…well I will have to hit Pauly’s blog. Be careful, your blog may be next!!

Hey Joaq. Are you feeling up to the Challenge? The Heads-Up Challenge 2? I hope so. You'd be a fine addition to the roster.

Sorry I'm leaving the post here. I don't have your email. Email me at brodybanky AT aol DOT COM and we can communicate without posting.

The details are still sketchy. We start when we have 16 competitors. Brackets are random. You choose the time of your bracket's match with your opponent. For this reason, I need email addresses for everyone. Other details are available on my site, but ask a question and I will answer it.
