The Golf Pool & The Poker Pit

So, I joined a golf pool run by a family member of a co-worker. They're a fun bunch out in Calgary. Naturally I know sweet fuck all about most of the lower ranked dudes on the pga so I enlisted Matty B the golf obsessed sweatervest wearer to help with the picks. In return I gave him a 20% freeroll -- fun for the whole family.

The first event was this weekend, the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Team "Sweatervests Rule" placed 3rd to last. Well, a bad start but overall we're in 17th place out of 36 teams given the scoring format -- top 50 money list at the end of the year plus payouts for every week. I'll break it down here if anyone cares, but nobody will so i won't :)

On the other hand, poker. Now, I love poker but I never get to play because I'm a workaholic who works a job plus runs a biz with the rest of my spare time leaving me with... well... no spare time. So, to accommodate poker I've decided to stop working the job.

Yep, in today's fantastic economic climate I've decided to go it alone and cast away the shackles of a job. Well, not really I'm expecting to do a bit of contracting for the same company but STILL it's a step in the right direction baby! Expect me to play more poker shortly so I actually have something to write about.... yeah, G+P is boring lately, stfu. :)

My new websites are coming along nicely... no details yet... I'm such a tease but they'll definitely blossom once I gain a bit more time/freedom.

New Websites In The Works

Hi Folks, Toast here.

I'm working on some spiffy new related websites right now ... so yeah i know i've been a little behind updating good old G+P here. The good news is I'm running a bit better now and actually making money online when I find the time to play. The bad news is that I don't often find time to play. ;)

If you're playing cards, good luck at the tables in the meantime. If you're lucky enough to get away and go golfing down south or something where its not freezing like here... I hate you! Jesus it's cold here!
