WSOP

Postby Pogotheostrich » Fri Jun 10, 2005 2:40 pm

I know there are quite a few poker players at the cafe. I was checking out the air date for the $10,000 buy in and ESPN has it scheduled to start Oct. 11th. You would think the "Worldwise Leader in Sports" would realize that falls right around the time of the World Series. :-t :-t

How long are they going to stretch it out for? 8 weeks? Well, that will be halfway through the wildcard round, but espn really gets a big :-t for taking 3 months to get it on air! Not really espn though, it is the same w/ all the networks that run poker programming. You always hear about the winners long before you see them... it just seems it gets worse every year is all

I don;t understand the popularity of televised poker. I think poker is fun to play but who wants to sit around and watch others play :-P

I sure hope you know that it's spelled l-a-u-g-h :-o :-o

I hate seeing poker on ESPN. It's a tragedy that they constantly replay the 2003 WSOP over and over and show only 3 lacrosse games a year :-t As probably the fastest growing sport in America, and IMO the most exciting to watch, I would think lacrosse would get some more respect than reruns of poker :-[

I would argue that poker is growing faster than lacrosse. Whether it is a sport or not can be debated, but how many people can you talk to now that haven't started playing poker, or have tried it.

I agree with Nomar completely ... poker is the new phenomen sweeping the nation, can't deny it.
