Weekend Bliss!

Been watching a shit load of golf this weekend. Just finished watching the last day of the Open Golf Championship. Unbelievably difficult week for the pro's in that wind. But a great champion imo! Padraig Harrington was rock solid in the last round and hit some amazing shots on the back 9.

Interestingly, when I went to the practice day on wed, one of the 1st guys we come across was on the par 5, 15th. He was practising on his own, but he was a huge, blond haired guy I hadn't seen before. I thought he was Scandinavian or something but noticed his name was Wood. Anyway he hit the ball beautifully into the wind. Little did I know what an impact he would have on the Open. He was an English amateur named Chris Wood, who had an amazing week, finishing a few shots off the lead and winning the Silver Medal.

Favourite Pastime

Seriously, I'm a huge couch potato. I'll watch any sport going. As a kid, if I wasn't out with my mates playing football, cricket, basketball, swimming, golf, whatever, then I was sat on the couch watching it. I played many sport's at school for the school teams, some at City level, but never progressing it further than that. I always thought I could have excelled in something, but it wasn't to be.

Anyways, this weekend has been great for me. We've had the golf, the Tour de France, MotoGP, Formula 1 etc etc. So I haven't played a lot of poker.

Just about to watch MotoGP, there at Laguna Seca in the states, which is one of my favourite tracks of the year. If you guys have played with me at Pokerstars, then you will have seen my avatar. That's me on my Ducati 748, hence the screen name. That was my pride and joy, but unfortunately I had to sell it due to financial reasons, hopefully next year I'll be able to buy another motorbike.

I also love watching American sports. I played basketball as a kid, and reached a decent standard by UK standards. But the game I like best when it gets to the Fall, is baseball. I love watching the final stages of the season.

So not much to talk about in poker terms. Sorry I didn't do the multi tabling video, I will do it some time this week, GL all.
