See what I mean about what happens when my stubborn streak kicks in?
CC, thanks again for throwing these games together. But I have to say I'm not sure at this point if I'll play another blogger game for a bit.
Iggy once said blogger games should only be thought of as +EV for fun. And with the exception of the Mookie (I have a soft place in my heart for the Mookie), they're just not that much fun for me lately.
And unfortunately, that's why I play these games, the MATH, the WWDN, the CC Bash....for fun. For the chat, the camaraderie, the goofing off. Let's face it, it's not like I really have the skill to battle against these guys week after week. So when I play these games, I KNOW my chances of placing ITM is slim and rare, but I always expect some giggles as other compensation.
Yeah, I know the halcyon days are over, where the girlie chat rocked, when the hammer was played with wild abandon and bragging rights meant more than money. And I do like watching players like Hoy, GCox, MiamiDon and the rest battle it out.
But I shouldn't be pushing msyelf from my desk feeling faintly pissed off and disappointed. Again, yeah, I know I set myself up for it ... I expect A and get B.
Disappointment looms everywhere.
