Summer Is Finally Here

It is finally starting to get warm here.  Yesterday I went golfing with a couple of friends but played like crap.  Just trying to enjoy the nice weather.

I have been going to a lot of soccer games lately.  A few weeks ago John Goldie and I went over to Montreal to watch Toronto FC take on Montreal in the final game of the Canadian Championship.  Toronto needed to win by 4 goals which everyone thought was an impossible task, but I had faith they could do it.  We did a little pre-drinking before the game with all of the TFC fans, then headed over to the game on the subway.  The subway ride was insane.  Everyone was chanting and jumping up and down, at several points it felt like the train may even derail.  Once at the game, there were between 200-300 Toronto fans.  Toronto quickly went down 1 goal after a penalty kick, but shortly after came back to score 2 before the end of the first half.  The second half was insane as they continued to score and within the last 10 minutes put in the goal to give them their 4 goal lead.  Just before the end of the game they sealed it and put in a final goal making the score 6-1.  It was such a great experience as we stuck it out in the rain screaming our voices out and in the end were rewarded with the Canadian championship.  The players all came over to our section after the game and threw their jerseys out to the fans.

Also soccer related, Zinadine Zidane came to Toronto a few weeks back and I watched him play a friendly against “the Canadian All-stars”.  Most of the players other than Zidane and Palermo (Boca Jrs) were crap, but it was still cool to see one of the greatest soccer players of all time.

Next week I am going to start part 2 of my bartending training: the advanced course.  It sounds fun and will be pretty cool because I get to invent my own drink and present it to the class.  Also, I got tickets to see Sarah Silverman next week which should be fun.

On the work front, lately I have been spending a lot of time building a casino site.  It seems like everyone is getting into the casino side so I figured, why not.  If anyone has any good sites and wants to swap links, let me know.

My other sites are doing all right, just grinding on and not really growing much.  Need to start spending more time on those but as usual I have either been too lazy or have been more focussed on getting the casino site off the ground.

Lately I have also been thinking about heading out to Budapest for the conference out there.  Anyone else planning to go?

Back in Canada

drinkinggameWell, I’ve been back home for about a week now and have been kinda sick since getting back.  Definitely miss Argentina and can’t wait to head back again.

Tax season is upon us now and one of my least favorite times of the year.  Nothing is more fun then sending the government a big fat ass check that they are just gonna blow on stupid bullshit.

Missed out on Amsterdam this time, but looks like everyone is having a blast as usual.  Trying to decide which conference to go to next.  Where is everyone else going?

Jeremy Miller launched a blog recently.  Please, turn off the stupid “YOU MUST BE LOGGED IN TO COMMENT”… where’s the fun in that!

Been having some awful poker sessions as of late.  Just the other day was playing some 2/4 PLO and hit a set on the turn in a decent sized pot.  The other guy bet, I reraised big, and he shoved me all in on a JT53 board (I hit 5′s).  I made the call, and he showed AA97???  Anyway, river came an Ace… gg asshole.  I need to stop playing.

This weekend is the Toronto FC opener and my brother is taking me (allegedly).  I don’t always believe everything he says, but he seems to be serious so hopefully its a go because I really want to go to the game.  Gotta pick up a new jersey for that.

Other than that, life is boring… can’t wait to travel again.
