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.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
    • The truth comes out!
