AP goes all in

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
