And away we go...

Back on the road, this week to Napa Valley. It's only a 50K tournament, so in theory, the quality of players might be a little bit lower, but I haven't even looked at the entry list now that there have been about 7 withdrawals. Flight leaves this morning at 7:10, so of course I got to the airport at 5:30 so I could be super prepared to get through security, which is obviously so tough in Champaign-Urbana. I was up to the gate within 10 minutes. Really, when you think about it, it's kind of embarrassing. I also missed yesterday's bar crawl with my friends. I believe the 5th annual? 7th? I don't know. But to think they did it while students were in town...yikes. That's it for now. Going from CMI to DFW to LAX to SFO today, about a 14 hour day. And here we....gooooooo

I've decided to restart this

Mostly because I don't have many public outlets anymore. So, professionally speaking, I'm now: -A PA Announcer, proudly, at the University of Illinois. -A tennis play by play broadcaster. WHAT? -A "professional" poker player. WHAT? I'm really excited about the new things in my life. Personally, since my last post, I've gotten married, and bought a house. Jeebs. Seriously. It's not like we have a ton of money, but I'm absolutely thrilled about the direction life is headed. My next trip out on the road is September 22nd. I think I'm going to blog as much as possible on the road, so that I remember the trips as they go. 3 stops in Cali out there, including Napa Valley. Hell. That's incredible. OK. This is a start.
