There are very few things that can pull me away from a good poker game. There is college football, especially Texas A&M games, NFL games, and of course tonight – the start of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, England. More than 10,000 athletes from 204 countries will compete over the course of the next 16 days and they will keep me riveted to the boob tube.
I’ll have plenty of time to play lots of poker games during the rest of the summer, taking breaks, of course, to watch the Texas A&M Aggies do battle against their first SEC opponents. But for now, I’ll practice my poker chips shuffling and watch my favorite Olympic events as they unfold at the XXX Olympiad.
