NumbBlowMe Invitational - Rebuy Hell 



Last night was just about the craziest blogger game ever hosted by NumbBono. I really had no intention of playing the game because I was sitting at the Pub watching the Phillies game. But by the time the tournament started I was feeling Phillies phrustration and decided to do some button mashing.

They leave ANOTHER player in scoring position, rebuy. Strike out, rebuy. Idiot umpire, rebuy. Guy looks at me sideways, rebuy.

99 player with 4400+ rebuys.

I guess NYRambler technically won the tournament but 6 hours of play for $142 in a 10cent rebuy is a rate that wouldn't get me to cross the street for a Soco special. So I had my FTP overlords ship me the player list and the number of rebuys per player.

I congratulate NutzCarson for the real win leading the pack with 132 rebuys followed closely by Lucko and Loretta8. I came in with a solid 114 rebuys even with registering late.

The Beer-amid 



After two drunken decades it's tough to find anything to surprise BigMike or myself but last Thursday gave us a laugh. The Pub sells buckets of Rolling Rock pony's and three gentlemen decided to see exactly how many of these they could drink and then create their own beer-amid. That's the boys and most of their mountain of empty bottles above. The bottles are 4 deep, over 80 bottles. They were having a blast and actually made a dreadful karaoke night tolerable.

They met up with a couple newly 21 year old girls who were overindulging on a weekday and the buckets continued to fly across the bar right up until last call. Bartender John commented that he should really take the bottles away but his OCD only made him go over and make sure the labels were pointing out properly. Someone from the Pub grabbed a few photos and we thought the night was over. But what turns a decent night into a funny story? Little miss drunk hippy chick decided she would add the crowning bottle to the top of the beer-amid and the results was the sickest sound of crashing bottles. All 80 hit the floor in an avalance of tiny green bottles. Don't believe me, well my photog actually caught the fall while it was in progress. John actually had to use a snow shovel to clear the debris.





So we've decided that tonight the guys would come back and he would have additional help to see just how many ponys we can plow through. It will turn into an ugly night.

Leading up to the World Series and I was having a heard time finding anyone besides the local homer sportscasters who gave the Phillies even a little bit of hope to beat the all-powerful Rays. I said before I was worried about them and it will be tough. The Rays had 97 wins playing in the AL East. But the Phillies don't exactly play in the soft NL West so I'm quietly hopeful and hope to not jinx them. They stole a win last night in a game where the bit bats took a vacation. I was hoping they'd set some World Series records at the plate but setting the one for most futility with runners in scoring position was not exactly the one I was looking for.

ScubaSteve sent me a picture the other night that I didn't see until the morning. Steve himself holding up two tickets to WS Game number 3 at Citizen's Bank Park. If I caught him that night there might have been a chance I see that game, instead he turned around and sold them off since he was already committed to work that evening. God damn lazy sleeping bastard, I am. Things are looking slim for me actually get down there to see a game. Tickets are tough to come buy and a friend of mine paid $500 for a standing-room-only ticket over a week ago, they've gone up quite a bit since then. So it looks like I'll spend the World Series sitting in my comfy barstool at the Pub. Chain-smoking, power-drinking, and chewing on Zantac like they're TicTacs.

Tis true that Gracie and Sweet Sweet Pablo will be getting legally joined at the hip while out in Vegas and yours truly will be officiating. BigMike and Riggs will do their level best to make sure I'm capable of speaking English by nuptial time which will be a tough job. The first 24 hours in Vegas are generally a hard time to keep me sane and sober, if you've ever seen me at the start of a blogger tournament you know what I mean.

Hell, one of my better Vegas Friday nights found me drunk and getting rolled by a hooker in an elevator at 5am.

But now I have a reason to stay good Friday night and you have a great reason to make it to Vegas in December. Who am I kidding? I'll end up flying on Thursday morning so I can get my bender well out of the way before I have to act the part of the Good Reverend Al.
