Did you see the Fiesta Bowl last night?
Big Game Bob lost. Can you believe it? Big Game Bob wins every game, and he really always wins big games. That is why he is Big Game Bob. Ignore the man behind the curtain claiming BGB is 0-4 in BCS games since winning the National Championship (3 of which were blowOUts). Focus on the fact that Mack Brown sucks and can't win anything, especially the big game. Ignore that Mack is 4-0 in his last 4 bowl games, including 2-0 in the BCS and 1-0 in NC games. Is it possible that we form impressions early and then become inflexible in changing those impressions even when faced with quantitative evidence to the contrary? Methinks yes. This happens in poker, too. For a while on Party Poker, I was getting killed in the $1-$2 game, but I was convinced that I was a winning player. After all, I won for my first year. When the evidence piled up, I (thankfully) changed my impression of myself.
Can you believe that IAG was mentioned twice in the game last night? First, when Berry and Dingle sat next to each other, the announcer talked about how the bloggers would be all over it
. Surely this was a reference to JG's post on the subject
. Second, they mentioned that you could find Noel Devine's high school highlights on the internet. Though not mentioned by name, I know they were referring to me and my "sick" Noel Devine
post that refenced the same highlight reels.
I have a long post that I owe about my recent poker and football pool successes. In short, I won $160 at KL's house, a week later I won $260 at my house, a week later, I won $230 at JG's house. Also, I am tearing up my pools. Hard to say what I will win until the games are complete, but at this rate, it will should be a minimum (gross) of $1,600. Could be more.
