Worst Year Ever

26 08 2014

Yup, it’s confirmed, I’m now down over $300, which officially makes this my worst year ever…, and it’s not even over yet. Whoa is me. I know, Ken will say “that’s nothin’ ya pussy! What about the year I was down $9000 and change!!!”. But Ken’s used to being a pathetic loser at poker and I’m not. So I’ve pretty well given up on 2014, but next year I’ll be back in winning form, you’ll see…, YOU’LL ALL SEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (cue Vincent Price laughing).

So anyway, there’s no fucking way I should be in 3rd place in points, so I propose a change to replace something that never should have been implemented in the first place. I speak of the 1 point for showing up. I feel that if you lose, you should get nothing, nada, nyet, fuck you, you suck. With this re-adjustment, the ones who lose the most are Mauro, me and Chris, which is fair because we have lost the most games this year. Check out the Points Total adjustment that I made in the stats and tell me if you agree that this is a much better representation of points distribution. I really really really really, REALLY!!! need your feedback on this. The question is: should we eliminate the 1 point for showing up and losing? Yes or No. Anyone who does not respond to this will be hounded relentlessly until I get an answer. Don’t test me, I can be relentless you know.

This Friday, game is at Keith’s. He will be on call, so if he does get called out to work it just means we can raid his fridge and pantry, and make sexual advances towards his pets ( I call dibs on the bird).

Happy Hetero Pride Week!

10 08 2014

Yes, I hereby declare this week to be Happy Hetero Week. Parade to be announced. Heck why shouldn’t we have a week dedicated to a celebration of our sexual orientation too? I know, I know, the LGBTG community will tell me that we aren’t persecuted like they were (or are), and I suppose they’d be correct in saying so. But, I think we should be able to publicly express our love of the pussy and all surrounding areas. This is coming from a male perspective of course, the girls can celebrate what they enjoy, you know, men doing housework, etc., etc.

By the way, here is Ken’s rebuttal to Chris’ blog last week:

“Chris, well done, slightly embellished.  Today is your lucky day.  I will spare you my poisonous pen.  FYI, it is a known fact acknowledged by North American Insurance companies that white males 18-34 are the worst drivers! Meanwhile, my boy wants to have a word with you! ”  Not So Angry Asian  THINKING OF U!

Nice to see the kid standing up for his old man. I, however am slightly disappointed. When Ken said he was gonna write a rebuttal, I thought “Awesome! We get to see some of Ken’s classic acid wit”. Sigh, I guess he really has mellowed out…, ‘not so angry’ indeed, I guess Karson’s the angry one now.

Here’s a breakdown of where we’ve played so far this year: Ken 6x, Bob & Murray 5x, Chris & Keith 4x, Me 3x, Dave 2x, and Paul & Alex 1x. So, the schedule should be as follows: Me this Friday, then Keith, then Chris, then me again, just to bring us all to 5x. We can then do the regular rotation with Ken bringing up the rear. I also need to know now if Paul and Alex want to be included in the rotation as well.

Chris’ First Blog

5 08 2014

Take it away Chris:

After wrapping up a quick meeting downtown I met up with a guy from work for lunch in Yale town. We get lunch to go and grab a seat along the sea wall. Beautiful woman running, seniors walking, parents and children riding bikes along the sea wall. Truly a great place for lunch.

From a distance I hear two Asians taking the piss out of each other so I turn around and I see one guy looking the part of biker/athlete an the another gentleman not so much. In fact, my first thought was, wow, imagine being that old and just learning to ride a bike. Good for him. He had it all going on.. Ball cap, helmet 2 sizes too big, sun glasses, gloves, and covered head to toe in reflectors. He looked very…special.

As they came closer the bench beside us started the chant of “mandlebaum! mandlebaum!” The caretaker looked up and yelled out “it’s Chris!” Sure enough this was our good friends Murray and Ken. Murray, with the poise and balance of an ex rower hits the brakes, jumps off the bike and starts walking over. Meanwhile our special friend Ken, slams on the front brakes, goes over the handle bars like superman and manages to land on his left elbow, right knee and ribs with one shot. For such a small man, he managed to make quite the thud.

Credit to our special friend, he pops up and begins scrapping his pride, blood and skin off of the sidewalk. Before Murray and I could stop laughing a faint voice came from the distance “are you okay sir!? As the great grandpa shuffled along the path, he continued to comfort Ken with his kind words “I want you to stop and sit down for a moment. This has happened to me before. Us old guys need to take it easy you know!” Senior Kenny was able to use his best “I’m not really going for a flush poker face” and brushed the old man off and within seconds, was looking for the corner store to buy some magic spray for his wounds. Aka, a bathroom he could go cry in.

Moments later, he returns. Eyes a little red, pride and ego slightly damaged, and blood still pouring from the open wounds. He hopped on his bike and rode off into the sunset. Hopefully he stopped off at the bike store down the road to pick up some training wheels and made it home alright.

And I thought Asians on 4 wheels was scary…
