BBT in Exile #2

Don't forget, tonight is HeffMike's BBT in Exile tournament over at Poker Stars. Ya, it's for play money and nothing is sweeter then blogger money, but seriously, hasn't some of the fun of the blogger tournaments been the bragging rights? It's 8 game. What could go wrong?

Freerolls and back pain

As some of you know, I've been spending a lot time in the last few months doing what I need to do to get back in shape. Following Waffles lead, I had been doing the Couch to 5K running program. Things had been going really well in that regards. I even ran a 2 mile fun run with my oldest daughter. Lots of fun.

Little did I know, tying your running shoes could be hazardous to your health.

Thursday at lunch, I was all set to do Week 5 day 3, my longest continuous run - 20 minutes with no walking, no breaks. I couldn't have been more psyched.

Down in the locker room of the healthy living center at the hospital I work, I get my running clothes on, hooked up all the wires I use for tunes and monitoring and finally pulled on my shoes. Zowee! Seems bending over to tie my shoe tweaked something in my back.

And now I'm laying here, wondering why now. Why oh why...why now? Why now is online poker shut down? I've got plenty of time to play!

I've had ample time to play Words With Friends, catch up a little on Google Reader and even read some Twitter. That's led me to a poker site I'd never even heard of before reading KevMath's tweet this afternoon.

A reminder HeroPoker is running a $30,000 + $30,000 Bonus Dollar freeroll Sunday at 4:30pm ET, US players only, more at
Seems there's a poker site called Hero Poker and they are hosting a US player only freeroll tomorrow. I figured what the heck. I'm not making a deposit any where any time why not try to Ferguson a bankroll somewhere?

Maybe I'll see you there? Pretty sure my back won't let me do anything else for a while. Sigh.
