AP goes all in

4 posts in this topic

The past few times I’ve been over playing cards at Canterbury, our boy AP has been there yuckin it up with the high rollers there playing the 30/60 game.

Seems he has a liking to the game of poker.

Anyway the other night the EPSY’s were on and I was on a table next to his. The award comes up for breakout player of the year and they start showing his highlights on all the big screens around the poker room.

Of course for the people who knew he was there it caught their attention.

The program was not live, but yet hadn’t been run yet. So we are there watching, and then I saw a little smirk come across his face and I knew he had won (gotta work on that tell buddy grin) .

Sure enough they announce his name and he gets a big smile and watches himself walk up on the stage and accept the award, in the meantime applause breaks out through the card club.

Just thought it was a funny story that I’d share.

Sure would be fun to take a grand and sit down on the table with him and [PoorWordUsage] for a few hours.

I havent ever met him, but I heard he is down to earth, and is just a normal guy. Lets see if that changes as he gets to be more famous!

Way Cool!

A Grand heads against the Rookie I'd take that ACTION "ALL DAY" heck we could quit our Jobs if we could get that game on a regular basis!

I'm sure he's a decent player but I like playing against Big Bankrolls!

One of my old high school buddies said he seen Laettner at Mystic right after the puppies drafted him. Sitting at the $3 BJ tables.

AP seems like a great guy, and seems like he is working alot of charities in Minnesota. Problem is, ESPNs Sportscenter doesn't tell you about this kind of thing, but they do tell you about every arrest made of any athletes.

    •   Wanderer, you better scaddle on out of these parts before your soul gets taken and your brain gets fried too!
    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!

    •   This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    • I like the slush. If you don't, swipe the chips on one side of the hole with your foot before you break threw and let it run for second or two.  This will flush it out.  Having some slush in a hole in shallow water on a sunny day is sometimes a benefit.  If fish are spooky on a sunny day fishing in the open put some slush in the hole.  You might be surprised.

    • 32 HERE IN THE boat on Hidden Bay, some sunshine but it looks a lot warmer then it is. Back at the cabin after running a few errands in town. Had to go down to the Lake Iwanttobethere Bank where I slipped into Mr. Fergenson office, the bank president to approve some town transactions. I do this from time to time but never mention it but now that you know I am working in the background helping the town out I thought I would share a little of what is being done around here to keep looking good. Today I approved a pink paint job on the fish cleaning station down by the access and also one of the docks is in need of replanking so that to will get done before fishing season starts. A check was sent out to the street cleaning company and the flag on the pole in the center of town will be replaced.   A donation was made to the Ladies Auxiliary to pay for their rental and we talked about the request to resod the softball field in time for the church league season. The big check was for ten thousand walleye fingerlings to be hauled into the lake under the cover of darkness to keep them walleye guys happy. Another donation to the volunteer fire dept. And my favorite thing Mrs. Gleason to her surprise will find out that she won a contest at the bank which just happens to be enough to pay off her mortgage. Money was donated to the Lodge to pay for six membership and they will be drawn for in a contest that Gus will come up with, his job now as the manager.   A couple of new bike racks for around town, and a fresh coat of paint on the two parking spaces and a good cleaning of the meter where DOC Burriem still ties his car to when he is in town. An envelope with a couple of dollars to the Smith kid to keep helping out Ma and Pa after school with sweeping their sidewalk. An order confirming Diggers flowers for all the town’s planters and a new planter out on the road leading the way to Lake Iwanttobethere and maybe touching up the sign. Next month I will have to look at the grass contract and there was talk that the boat landing needs to be dug out some. A few fire rings may have to be ordered for the park. I enjoy being the little birdy listening to what we need done around the town as I sit behind the bar wiping out mugs with my towel. Have been doing this for a long time and I enjoy spending bucks. Makes me happy to put a smile on someone’s face. Now it is not all me the town does bring in money I just help Mr. Fergenson out when the town is a little short or I see where I can help the town out.   I have always backed the Lodge as a place where guys can go and put their feet up, not a place where people go to get money for stuff. My me donating we keep the fishing contests going. I do donate a lot to the school for things because I want our kids to enjoy being kids not having to learn how to be salesmen in the second grade trying to earn money for field trips. Of course there I have a price tag and that is they get at least one ice fishing trip and one summer trip. If they don’t have rods Masterbaiters seems to find a check for them. Now this is not a total secret, of course Mr. Fergenson knows about me and the town along with Elmer and Big Earl and Vicki at the bait shop, they also help donate or at they get the town stuff at cost. There are a lot of people out there who love to donate and a kid’s smile is all they want in return. I find that smile means a lot to me these days. My 765 birthday today, everyone now is kind of special and you might have figured it out, my birthday is the day I go see Mr. Fergenson here at Lake Iwanttobethere
