Time for a mini-rant.It's my blog afterall and if I upset any eco-warriors or Daily Mail/Guardian readers then too bad.
Being a Rangers fan I've never much liked the colour green and right now I've just about had it with the constant crap being spewed about how we should all be super green and environmentally friendly.From what I've read, the world has been cooling and warming constantly over the centuries, nobody can actually prove that Global warming is man made and even if it is for real, I doubt it can be prevented by me putting my tins cans in a separate bin from my normal waste.( Especially considering the huge industrial growth in China and India)
Todays Radio 5 live phone in was encouraging twats to take a stand at the supermarket checkout by removing all the packaging from items and demanding the manager recycle it.If some numpty takes a stand like that in front of me I won't be slow in asking them to move aside and stop wasting time.( or a swift kick to their package may follow!)
Apparently Slough council has even used the "green" excuse to avoid holding their annual bonfire on Nov 5th as it would pollute the atmosphere! I would venture that just one Egyptian taxi ( 25yr old smoke machines!) would produce about ten times the smoke a bonfire produces,simply by starting the engine.
Another story hacking me off is the one re the two community policeman who supposedly stood by and watched a boy drown because "water rescue" was not part of their training.The Daily Mail are making a big deal of the fact they didn't dive in to help, despite the fact the police were initially directed to the wrong part of the lake, and when they did get to the right part, there was no sign of the stricken boy.Diving in randomly would have been like searching for the proverbial needle in a haystack.
The last part of my min-rant is directed at radio dj's who imply that the simple act of playing a song is a huge favour for the listener."Stay tuned and if you're all very good little listeners I may play this great song shortly".I accidentally tuned into Scot Mills on Radio 1 and this was his highy annoying style.
I'll leave drivers who don't indicate alone, as I've ranted about them before, ( they're still A-holes) but a quick mention of all those "outgoing" idiots who declare themselves to be "totally mad" or "crazy".Lock 'em up in a padded cell and see how crazy and mad they are then I say!
Ahhhh that's better!
On the pokery front I came 4th in an 18 man ,$16 turbo last night before playing a wee bit of cash poker at bet 365 and leaving $20 up.I didn't catch any playable hands at all but I did make some aggressive bluffs.At one point I called a raise, and just before the villain continuatiuon bet $3.50 into a $4 pot on a ragged Jack high flop,I swear I could hear Sbrugby's voice in my head saying ( adopt US accent!) " Huh,I don't think he's hit this flop and I'm gonna check raise and try and take it down".I reraised his $3.50 to $9 and the villain folded.
I'm off to Ibrox tonight to see Rangers take on the mighty Barcelona in the Champions league.I can't wait to see Messi,Ronaldinho,Henry and co in action.I only hope Rangers give a good account of themselves and don't get humped too badly!
Tomorrow night I'm over at the ex's looking after Step A ,and as she has no net access I've downloaded a few cardrunners vids to my media player to watch.That's my idea of taking a break from the poker!
I also added a Pokertracker screenshot of my stats summary over 27k hands at Ladbrokes to yesterdays post.Any comments welcome!
Righty that's more than enough for just now.Back later in the week....
