Baddest Bitch in Poker

I've been following this year's World Series of Poker very closely and one player who caught my eye is 23-year-old Loni Harwood. Though she didn't win a bracelet she did make 2 Final Tables taking 6th in a $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha-8 for $39,000 and then a 4th in a $1,500 No Limit Hold Em for $210,000.
Most interesting to me is that Harwood is from Staten Island. And though she wears a Miami Heat hat all the time (though not the same one), she certainly plays like someone from Staten Island. She has pulled off several daring bluffs which would be impressive for any player, but are especially noteworthy because she is a woman, who for lack of a better term, plays like a man.
I have been trying to find out more info on Harwood, such as what neighborhood she's from and what high school she went to, but information on the internet is scarce, and the Staten Island Advance doesn't seem to be aware of her existence. I did e-mail the sports editor there to try to get an article written about her, so we will see if that happens.
If not, we'll just have to hope she wins the Main Event so we can get some positive coverage about our wonderful island.

Song of the Week

"Denise" - Randy and the Rainbows
This was one of the toughest decisions I've ever had. I chose this because I love the doo-wop sound and I think this song though great, is probably unknown to most Poopheads. Mama and Papa Poop say they have friends who named their daughter Denise because of this song.

What Do You Give Me For Rob Kardashian and George Zimmerman?

Kim Kardashian's brother and Trayvon Martin's killer sure have gained a lot of weight since we first met them. Now they look like fat-faced twins.
What do you give me for Rob Kardashian and George Zimmerman?

You Are What Your Record Says You Are

Bill Parcells famously said "you are what your record says you are" and I believe it to be true. The Dodgers are a last place team, and the Pirates are a first place team. Things could change, but for right now the Pirates are great and the Dodgers stink.
The Mets record by month so far this year:
April 10-15
May 12-15
June 11-15

That pretty much means the Mets are exactly what they seem to be, a bad team. A consistent team, but still bad.
