WTF is wrong with THESE People?


Just kidding.  I’m watching the ESPN’s coverage of the World Series of Poker Main Event on youtube.com right now and that’s what the first comment on the video says.  He’s talking about the fact that Norman Chad, the clown prince of poker announcers, is no longer working the telecast.  If you watch the poker on ESPN, you will know who I’m talking about.  He’s the dude that makes all the jokes and talks about his ex wives and other miscellaneous jibber jabber constantly.  Personally I love Norman Chad.  He’s a fucking crack up.  He always gives Phil Hellmuth shit, he’s a total smart ass.  But whatever…who cares right.To be honest, if you are reading this post, its a good bet that you are at your office job, bored off your ass, maybe thinking about checking out a couple pics of hot naked chicks and sneaking off to the Men’s Lavatory.  In order to get the proper stimulation, its necessary for you to go to google.com of course and type in one of a million familiar phrases such as “hot ass”, “sexy blond bimbo”, “busty milkers”, “nasty catholic school tramps”, “tits and ass”, “suck it”….something along those lines.  Any combination of many of those words could quite possible lead you to my blog.  Especially if you do your searches in “safe mode”.  I think I’ve gotten somewhere in the neighborhood of 3,000 hits from “hottest ass”, in safe mode on google.  I haven’t checked in a while but the last time I did that exact same search, this site was the eighth link shown.  You click on the link and its one of my posts, “Fuck This, Fuck That”, and it has an amazing photo of two incredible girls in Catholic School Uniforms.  The blond one, on top, has the sexiest, most edible looking ass, I’ve ever actually seen.I would marry the girl on top, just from this pic. Is that sick or what?  I really don’t mind how you got here.  It would be nice if you came back.  That’s a bit much to ask though, and I’m aware of that.  Dudes that are looking to rub one out during their lunch break from the law firm, accounting office, car dealership, real estate development corp, advertising agency, cheese factory, machine shop, hardware wholesaler, oil company, home builder, tile shop, subway sandwich franchise, hotel, casino, gas station, smoke shop, liquor store, pharmaceutical company, internet marketing corp, skate shop, mcdonalds franchise, tobacco company, movie studio, used tire store, 7-11 franchise, jack in the box franchise, dentist office, i.r.s. office, police station, airline, school board, men’s wearhouse, l.a. fitness, or verizon wireless retail outlet that they work at are generally not looking to read any words a smart ass nobody like myself would put together.In fact, I’m pretty sure the majority of the people who end up here, feel cheated in some way, and leave mildly annoyed.  I can’t say I blame them.  If I didn’t know me, I wouldn’t be clamoring to read me.  I’d be like, “fuck man.  I came here to see some hot bitches not read War and Peace, who really gives a fuck what you think about anything.  Just bring on the ass!”In this day and age of information overload, finding a loyal group of readers doesn’t seem to be an easy task for GOOD writers, with GOOD stories to tell.  If I’m honest, I’ll admit I’m neither.  Who cares about that even though?  Does that really even need to be said? I mean seriously now.  I’m dropping the ball here big time. I’m still jet lagged from my trip to the Cayman Islands.  My internal body clock is already all fucked up to begin with and now its worse.  I’m just gonna go.  Sorry about this post. Its a true piece of shit.

Oh one thing …is anyone else totally shocked at how fucked up of a company Full Tilt Poker turned out to be?  I can’t even believe that shit.  They must have squandered so incredibly much money, the numbers must be boggling.  I say this because, the company made incredible amounts of cash every single second of every single day, thousands of times a second.  It was common to see 70,000 players seated at cash games and tournaments at any given time.  The rake they must have been pulling in has to be pretty insane.  Some of you don’t know what I’m even talking about.  A quick rundown:  after Black Friday came a few months back, when the US govt put the clamp down on Full Tilt, Pokerstars and Ultimate Bet, all of the players who live in the USA were suddenly standing around not being able to play poker or get the money that they had deposited with the sites out.  We’re talking billions of dollars.  At first it was understandable and everyone was pissed at the Southern Justice Center’s attorneys for being a bunch of dicks and shutting us out of playing poker AND our cash.

It was soon made clear though that the Hoover Boys gave the okay for the sites to refund us all of our cash.  Four months later we are finding out that Full Tilt, in particular, one of the best and most popular sites BY FAR, didn’t have sufficient cash reserves on hand to pay all of the US players back at once.  That’s total BULLSHIT.  Here’s why.  The online poker sites, just like the landbased casinos, do not directly gamble against the players at the table.  Its not like blackjack or roulette or slots where you are pitted against the casino and thus have a slim shot in hell’s chance of being ahead in any kind of sustainable way, ever.  Poker players compete against other players.  The house deals the fucking cards and hosts the game and thats it.  They get paid a “rake” for doing that.  That means every hand that is dealt, the house gets a small percentage of the pot as its share for providing the tables, dealer, floor men, chips etc etc etc.  Its a fucking lot of money trust me.  A lot of money.  Especially with an online poker room, give me a break.  They were making a killing beyond words.  Just think about 20,000 hands a minute being played 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  It doesn’t matter what the weather is like.  Nothing matters.  They provide a virtual rendition of a poker table. Its fucking software.  They already own it.  So it stands to reason that the more players they got to play real money games on their site, the better off they were.

Seems like the sky was the limit.  If you can deal with 50,000 players at one time, well then you tell me how much more taxing it would be for them to deal with 5,000,000 at one time.  Not that much harder.  Trust me Full Tilt was blowing up so hard.  Given those probable vast sums of revenue being generated in a liquid format every second of every day, its hard for me to understand why they felt the need to go into the “trust funds”, which are the players individual poker bankroll accounts.  Those are off limits period.  Its no different to taxes actually.   Think about as if you were working for some jackass and he was taking 200 bucks a week out of your paycheck for IRS Federal Deductions right?  Those are your monies, that you worked and earned, and they should be sent straight to the IRS, on your behalf, to be used against your tax obligation at the end of the year.  In the perfect world the dude sends in your cash no problem, gives you your W2 at the end of the year, you take it to your bald, beer bellied, CPA dude, who charges you a 150 bucks to file your 1040 for you.  If you sent in too much at the end of the year you get a tax refund check.  I’m sure everyone knows what I’m talking about here duh.

Now, what if you get those taxes withheld from your paycheck, but your boss is a broke ass who can barely afford to pay the electricity and stuff, so he routinely dips into those monies he “withheld” from your paycheck that should have been earmarked to go to the IRS.   You would probably not be surprised if I told you that is a hugely common thing to happen.  Companies in trouble can barely make the payroll to begin with.  They’re thinking, “thank God we didn’t have to pay Sally her full amount, we would have never made it.”  The payroll is 8 grand say, and your dipshit boss somehow scrapes up 5,600, just barely enough to cover the net checks.  Well, that other 2,400 bucks has been paid too, whether they had the cash on hand  or not.  You can imagine what happens from there.  Shit starts to snowball big time.  All of a sudden the quarter is over, and for 12 straight weeks, the money that was supposed to be sitting in that special IRS only account at the bank to pay the quarterly payroll taxes is nowhere to be found.  It can’t be found because it never existed.  Your dipshit boss never had that money, in actual cash, ever.  But the government doesn’t look at it like that.  The government looks at that as the employer is stealing the fucking worker’s money.

Not a good thing to be doing, if you are the employer. You can go to prison for that shit.  In the IRS’s view, you stole that money.  You stole it from your employees because now they cannot take care of their own tax obligations.  That’s fucked up man.  It is.

Well, Full Tilt, in this case is doing exactly the same thing. They don’t have the cash to refund the players.  They should have never touched those funds.  Its called commingling and basically those deposits should be in special trust accounts that have nothing to do with the operating checking account of the business.  Obviously Full Tilt got caught with their hand in the cookie jar big time.  I’m sure it happens all the time with all kinds of companies actually.  The major difference is that Full Tilt didn’t think they were going to be shut down like that, so they were using the money in the players accounts for all sorts of corporate expenses, probably mainly sponsorship deals and perks to all of their sponsored players and whatnot.  When they got shut down their revenues went from millions a day to zero cents a day from USA players.  Now everyone is fucked. Personally, my account will never get paid back to me and same with all sorts of dudes.  I heard yesterday that the UK just banned Full Tilt as well, because of this improper trust fund usage.  Its a pretty terrible thing all the way around.  I do have sympathy for Full Tilt, they were just trying to blow up….big time.  Then they got nailed to the cross at the worst possible time and now its over.

Sad shit.  Hey sorry about this terrible blog post today.  I’ll try harder next time okay.  Congratulations once again to Ian McCall, for taking the Flyweight championship with a guillotine choke in the third round of his match against Darrell Montague at Tachi Palace Fights 10.  Then the next day the guy went out and married his pregnant girlfriend.  Good for him.

Peace out fools

Ian McCall will kick ass tonight at Tachi Palace.


Ian McCall faces Darrell Montague tonight for the Tachi Palace Fights flyweight championship.  For those who don’t know, flyweights  fight at 125 lbs.  Personally, I think its bullshit that the UFC doesn’t yet have a 125 lb. division.  At the moment 135 lbs. (Bantamweight) is as low as the UFC goes.  Unless you are brain-dead you already know who fights in that division.  Guys like Dominick Cruz (who also happens to be the current UFC Champion, Urijah Faber, Brian Bowles, Jeff Curran, Scott Jorgenson and Joseph Benavides.

Although Ian will be crowned champion in an organization called Tachi Palace Fights rather then UFC, early next year the UFC will be adding the featherweight class and Ian will be going to the UFC as Champion in much the same way as Dominick Cruz did in the Bantamweight divison.  I am totally biased because Ian is my buddy;  therefore Darrell Montague has no chance in this fight hahahaha.  No, but really, Ian is a sick, sick fighter, full of confidence, utterly fearless, in shape beyond belief, and ruthless in the cage.

He has an incredible record of 10-2 with his only losses coming against Dominick Cruz (see above where it says current UFC bantamweight champion….yeah that Dominick Cruz).  I haven’t seen that fight except for one little snippet but Ian lost that one I guess in a unanimous decision.  Nothing to hang his head about on that loss.  Cruz is on most pound for pound greatest fighter lists and believe me if you haven’t seen him fight, its an awesome thing to behold. Cruz just ran roughshod over his previous opponent (Urijah Faber…..), and I’ve seen him handle Joseph Benavides who is a bad ass fighter himself, not once but twice.  So take nothing away from Ian for losing a fight to Dominick Cruz.  Plus it was years ago anyways and it was in the WEC, a breeding ground for all sorts of bad ass fighters.  I could name dozens (and so could you probably lol).  Ian’s only other loss was also against a tough as nails WEC veteran, a guy who I’ve seen fight on television a bunch of times.  I’m talking about Charlie Valencia.  That was at WEC 31 (Faber vs. Curran).   He lost by submission in that one (I think by guillotine choke but don’t quote me, I’m doing this little blurb from memory and my memory isn’t that great to begin with.

You can do a search on the internet and find some of Ian’s fight videos.

Here is his last fight against a very game Dustin Ortiz, where Ian dominated

To be fair you can’t just check out the wins.  Here’s one of his losses (if the link works….)

Here is part 1 of his unanimous decision against the then #1 ranked flyweight, the undefeated Jussier da Silva (11-0)

Check them out if you haven’t already.  You will agree that he is an edgy, skilled, fearless and very talented fighter.  He has years of experience.  He has trained ultra hard/smart for this fight and to be honest although I don’t know much about Darrell Montague, I’m picking Ian McCall 100% for this fight.  He’s too fucking fast, he kicks too hard, he’s got too much energy and way too many moves for Montague to overcome.  Ian actually reminds me a lot of Dominick Cruz.  The way he dances around, evading the opponent always, just getting in his kicks, punches, elbows and then escaping is reminiscent of Cruz for sure.  Not sure if Ian will be too stoked about me saying that but it’s just my opinion. And I gotta say, Cruz is a bad ass motherfucker and I love watching him fight so its only a compliment to be compared to his stylistically right?

One more thing in Ian’s favor is the fact that he is settling down in life outside the cage.  He’s got a hot girlfriend who I think he’s getting married to soon and they are expecting a daughter in the next few months as well.  That kind of shit going on in your life is supreme motivation (and maybe a tiny bit of pressure as well).  I can see just from the quotes that Montague is sort of looking past Ian like this is going to be some kind of walk in the park, exhibition of whatever and he thinks he’s just gonna win no worries.  He’s fucking high if he thinks he is just going for a stroll in the park against Ian.  Sorry dude fuck that.

I think Montague is cocky where McCall is confident.  Montague reminds me a little of that dude that fought Michael Bisping at the UFC in Sydney a few months ago (UFC 127??).  I forgot that dudes name something like Jorge Rivera.  Whatever, it doesn’t matter, the point is Rivera was talking madness before his fight with Bisping and was super cocky (not saying Montague is acting like that but I just get that sorta feeling).  Anyway Bisping was offended by some of the shit Rivera was doing before the fight and it was what I like to call righteous anger and bottom line Rivera got humiliated big time.  He got his ass kicked, it was so rad.  Probably a lot of you hate Bisping for some reason but I don’t actually.  I like him.  I get alone good with Brits and Aussies and that sort anyway but whatever, he doesn’t offend me and yeah he himself did get his head fucking completely handed to him against Dan Henderson.  Completely knocked the fuck out which so many people were so happy about.  He took it like a man though.

I digress (as usual).

My point is that confidence and belief in yourself is supremely important.  When it crosses a line to cockiness and arrogance that’s when people get fucked up.  Karma and stuff.  I watched a little video that Ian did, an interview with some MMA Expert Guy, it must have taken place like a day ago or something because Mr. McCall looks like he’s at 125 lbs. right now.  Anyway, in the interview, even though Ian is joking around and shit, talking about his mustache and keeping his tone light and kinda joking, you can look into his eyes and see how deadly serious he is about this fight.  There is no brash cockiness.  There is no arrogance.  There is just a guy who has prepared himself for his destiny, a guy who has a family to support, a guy who is hungry and knows he deserves to be in this championship battle.  That guy is Ian McCall.  Tonight we are hopefully going to see Mr. McCall teach Mr. Montague (the villain hahahahhahaha) a lesson about humility and what its like to face a tornado with skills in the ring.

Ian, my friend I wish you luck tonight dude.  I sincerely want nothing more than for you to kick some fucking assssssssssssssssssssssssss!  Montague supposedly said that Ian is in for a long night tonight.  Well, we’ll just see who’s gonna be laying on the canvas praying for the bell.

There are some other fights on the card but I don’t give a shit about them enough to write a bunch of shit that no one is gonna read anyways.  To watch Ian’s fight though, you can go to this site http://www.sherdog.com/

Kick ASS !

If you actually read this, I thank you kindly.  I’m publishing it to my blog pre fight so whatever happens there is no bandwagon jumping on or off for me.  Ian will destroy and Ian will be champion.

Adios…..
