Golf and Poker Reveal Man At His Best-Or Worst

Playing golf taught me alot about character.  My own and others as well. How well a man reacts to hitting

a golf ball into the water or to  missing an 8 inch “gimmee” putt  will reveal loads about his character. His ability

to accept his mistakes and his ability to accept defeat from a difficult game that has baffled and stymied

men since it was first played. It looks easy. You have this big club to hit that teeny white ball that isn’t moving.

You hit it until you get close to a flag and a hole that the little white ball fits into. Just.  

I supported myself and another for six years playing holdem poker and the reactions of men to the two games are

similar, both designed by the devil to bedevil and both can cause similar reactions in men. Some men were great

losers who contributed happily to the welfare of those at the table with nary a complaint. Like golf, some try to

cheat which can cause a discomboobulation of the magnetic poles and an extreme meltdown.  Others cannot

gamble at all, it sets off primal genomes, from long ago that cause him to keep going for the inside straight and the

acey duecey combo. His favorite hand might be the seven duece combo ,off suit, of course. It is well he only plays

for “recreation.”  If he was playing for money he would be broke.  The best mannered players in golf and poker

are far and away those who have studied the game sure, but they also have gained a good deal of insight about

themselves.  I have seen some of these true gentlemen congratulate an inside draw to a small straight flush that beat

his four queens. ” Part of the game” he will assure all, but he knows that it’s best to reassure the amateur player who

hasn’t learned yet that he is the player the pros are all waiting for at the tables in Vegas.

In golf there are guys that can hit the ball a mile and it is a sight to behold–when the ball  isn’t going all over the

fairway and in the rough.  If you look at the lives of the inconsistant players in golf or poker, they are almost exactly

the same as their game.  Watch out when you play with this type. Often their clubs end up in the drink or the golf

cart is observed all over the course, if the driver doesn’t hit a tree first. Remember that if you look like a jerk and

act like a jerk playing golf or poker, that is how people see you at work, on the freeway, and at home. Don’t be

proud and boastful when you hit 67 and discover your life has been wasted on the petty and on your own narciss-

tic demands on others. Now look around.  Nobody’s impressed that yuou finally got a little insight. It reminds me of

drunk who sobers up at 50 and wants everyone he has ever known to congratulate him for doing what everyone

else does on a daily basis:  Act like a humanbeing.  That fool reaming out the clerk who is near tears is a lousy

poker player  and a lousy player at life.

gay marriage in the military???

What is all this fuzz about gay marriage in the military?  I saw or heard on the radio the news that this

General Peter is worried that morale may suffer if gays can’t get married and also that it is a moral issue,

well?  Which is it?  A moral or a morale issue?  I would image the gay dude who just got his ass shot off

it’s both.  Morally wrong to vilify gays with thier ass on the line and bad for his morale when he gets his ass

shot off.  And anyone who WANTS to get married needs a mental status exam. And that includes the gay

WOMEN getting thier ass shot off too.
