Friday (after the Baseball Draft), I went and played poker with a few coaching friends. It was the first time I'd played poker in probably 20 years. I started out betting too much on weak hands and almost went out. Once I figured out about how strong a hand needed to be and at what level each guy seemed to bid when he had a good hand (and they'd had few more beers than me) I turned it around and ended up a little ahead. It was a lot of fun, I expect we'll do it again in a few weeks.
Friday I drafted my fantasy baseball team for this year. In the league are Patrick Link, Trevor Jay, Kurt Morton and old friends Mike DeHaye and Ted Stafford. They are all Malleteers.

One of my favorite people in the world has a blog. I'm excited. A forum to harrass Mendez. We'd not seen each other in a couple of years & this fall we stayed up all night like little kids at Billy's mansion because it was too quiet & not cold enough for big boys to sleep. He's taken on The Amazing Race & the Oscars already. I love me some Mendez -
I wanna be cool.

After last week's link on BoingBoing this week I had a comment on Lifehacker (about a topic I seem to have become too aware of, cleaning up old hard drives). I guess I'm a commenter on all the gawker media websites now. Now if I just had anything useful to say...
