Clearly you have more support with the public than the suits at The Team thought you had, but the point is they thought you didn't have enough that they would miss you. Thats the point I think you should be heeding. You need more friends not less and I'm telling you: THE CAPS LOCK BUTTON ON YOUR KEYBOARD BETRAYS ANY FAKE HUMILITY YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO PEDDLE.
Ps explain how poker can be a sport with no physical component, (sitting on your ass for hours doesn't count or a long haul truck driver is an athlete)
WHY DID THE STATION FIGURE THEY COULD GET ALONG WITHOUT ME? THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.
ANSWER: WHO ENDED UP ASKING ME TO COME BACK?
AS FOR POKER - THE ENTIRE MENTAL GAME BEHIND POKER IS TRULY AMAZING. POKER REQUIRES STRATEGY AND BRAIN POWER....A LOT MORE THAN SOME OF THE 'PHYSICAL' SPORTS OUT THERE. THERE'S A REASON WHY ESPN BROADCASTS POKER.
I suppose you could misinterpret their hiring you back as your arrogant Schtick working lol.
The Titanic was unsinkable too, just ask the dead guy who ordered up more speed that night...
Re poker, that only explains why poker is an awesome game. chess is even more difficult and even Dungeon and dragons is a tough game to play, but to be a sport there has to be a physical element to it.
When the IOC includes it as a sport mayne you'll have an argument and doesn't ESPN broadcast dog shows?
( maybe that's just their puppet station TSN? )
