Kind of a Big Heel

Via HardBoiled Poker 
Funny how even without Twitter or FB, the most trivial of poker brouhahas can still find itself on your radar.

Someone sent me a link to this particular part of the 2+2 thread and while I have no way of knowing whether or not it's a photoshopped pic, it sure made me laugh.

Aye, pobrecita...

As Jerry Maguire said, we live in a cynical world. A cynical, cynical world. And it's only getting cynical-er. Not a word, but you know what I mean.

Social media is great, but it is of no help when it comes to defeating cynicism. Instead, it's a great breeder for same. This post is an excellent example. Le sigh.

Point is, there are no heroes in poker. Just as there are no heroes in the real world (or are there?). For under the white hot microscope of the interwebz, we are all burnt up in its searing, probing, privacy invading light.

  2. Had to look that one up, @Laoch. Nice one.
