People ask me what I do.

They don’t get it. Who is this guy who shaves when he wants, complains of working at 4am, and finds time for a walk in the park at two o’clock in the afternoon? He must be a drug dealer.

Come to think of it, that does sound like a drug dealer.

Right now I’m doing a little project I work on once per year for PokerStars. Most of my time has been dedicated to the final week of the World Championship of Online Poker (it’s an online poker series with a $50 million prize pool). I have a great team of people helping me execute a coverage plan that I’ve been adapting for the past five years. I think after five years we have finally settled into a plan that really works, so many thanks to Jen, Change, Martin, and Drizz for staying up late for the last two and half weeks. If you’d like to see what we’ve been doing, I’m pretty proud of the work we’ve accomplished on my baby, the PokerStars Blog (it’s about poker, so it won’t make sense to a lot of you). I should also thank my wife for being a tireless and relentless editor…for free!

Meanwhile, I’ve been helping my buddy get a little blog off the ground. If you know nothing about disc golf, it will make next to no sense. But really, how often do you get to read a disc golf narrative? Here’s my latest submission, The drainpipe tales.

Life starts to get back to normal in the middle of this week. It will be nice for a little break. I learned early this morning that there is a chance I’ll be taking an impromptu trip at the end of next week. That could make for some exciting times if it happens…and then maybe I’ll have something to write about other than poker and disc golf.
