well now that was entertaining to listen to. ive been in a poker tour and let me tell you what....if thats the most demanding tounament in the world then i should have won at least four stanly cups by now. roberto luongo plays in poker tounaments, lets ask him what is tougher and more demanding, the playoffs or poker? he'd probably hang up on you for asking such a dumb question. golf can be quite tiring, epecially if your walking the whole course. but to sit on yor ass and play cards for a week and call it the hardest tournament in te world to win is a slap iin the face.( memorial cup anyone?) ive always enjoyed the show and both men's opinions but pratt....are you out of you peabrained mind?!?!?!

I don't care if you walk or ride a cart (which all the pros do btw and is lame) golf is barely a sport....its more a game imo.
I kind of agree w/ Burke on this one that to be classified as a sport there has to be a danger element. Golf is definitely a game and takes skill and athleticism....its sometimes a competition while other times a past-time.

Poker is simply a game.

Never mind that. I'm sure the most important thing Team 1040 listeners need to know is if "Mr. Pratt" has found his money yet under his mattress next to his sticky underwear and his collection of magazines from Little Sisters bookshop.

Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townsend, Jimmy Page and others spent 16 hours per day playing guitar with lots of stress and competition. Despite Townsend's athletics in concerts during the '60s and '70s which was more carb burning than dealing from the bottom of the deck, I wouldn't call guitar playing a sport.

DavidPratt_ wrote:"I think there are so many things that are the same in sports and poker that you've got to link them together some way," said Brunson, a spokesperson for DoylesRoom.com. "You have to be a mental athlete to play. You have to have physical endurance. ... The last tournament I won (the No-Limit Six-Person Hold 'Em at last year's World Series of Poker), I played 18 hours one day, 16 hours the next day and 16 hours that last day. That's pretty tough. ...
I thought that after you got spanked by Taylor, a mental midget, you would run away and hide or at least admit the error of your ways. But no, you quote the 70-something on his self-serving tale about poker requiring physical endurance. Guess what, it doesn't. I suppose it depends on your definition of physical endurance, but normally that involves actually doing something like getting your fat ass off of the chair.

It is interesting that you're continuing to dig an even deeper hole.

Time to pull out the old dork of the week ...

I second this. I've worked 14 hours, 12 hours and 14 hours in 3 days straight at times (And I wasn't sitting on my ass the whole time let me tell you), should that have been a televised athletic sport? Sure it's exhausting and mentally tough, so are allot of things. a roadtrip across Canada for one. In fact that's a decent comparable, steady concentration while sitting on your ass for days on end with shitty hotels and pee breaks in between. I wouldn't call it a sport though.

Ha - so 'DP' has others making his arguments now - cute.

All of us agree that poker is a tough mental game, but like anyone who works for a living also agrees long days (yes some of us work over 12 hours a day) will lead to mistakes.

Has anyone asked the poker players if they feel they could keep up with a 80 game season of hockey, a full season of NFL football, NBA basketball or some other SPORT that requires both the mental toughness with the physical stress. Poker is what athletes do when they want to relax.

so, I have a question.....


did Pratt use all
CAPS ON TAYLORS A$$ WHEN HE WALKED OUT ON HIM?!?!?!?

or was it a more of a pillow talk "I am mad at you, make up in the morning' kinda thing?

I have seen David Pratt on a late Friday night. Leather is not a breathable fabric, so to constantly circle the room looking for the "just drunk enough" girl is VERY physically taxing. I have seen David sweating profusely, struggling to rehydrate himself before the drink specials end. Couple that with the mental toughness to constantly withstand the 10 second glare and the "I don't THINK so, Gramps!", and you have an elite athlete at the top of his game, although there are clear signs he's in the deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep twilight of his career.

What David Pratt does, ladies and gentleme, IS a sport. He doesn't call himself a "player" for nothing.

Nice! I never heard that before but it's sweet and makes 100% sense to me.

Either way though I'm listening to the team 1040 for the first time since the draft ended so it's brilliant marketing if nothing else.
