ESPN needs more Poker Shows

Postby Tavish » Sat Sep 18, 2004 12:21 am

I watched nearly 15 minutes of Which Curse is Worse. This may be the biggest bomb of an idea since Cop Rock. Absolutely unbearable.

Glad I missed that one. :-D Sounds pretty bad. Lol. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

As am I. I'm sick of those poker re-runs too, I can nearly memorize what each commentator is going to say since I've watched it so many times. :-o

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

I watched a couple of those top 25 countdown shows and they have been sickening, very poorly done and flat-out annoying. :-P

But poker is just as bad, I like to play it from time to time, but watching people do it?? I just don't understand what the fun is in watching men play with cards. And worse it has made everyone I know obsessed with poker, its a good game but everyone is constantly playing it now. :-P

The more you see, the more you play, the more you learn. :-) I play every day and make a few bucks, so no complaints from me. B-)

I agree about the Top 25. I especially hate the fillers where they feel the need to recap what we have already watched so far. :-°
