Pocket Twos Still Beats a Lockout

Paul Pierce thought it would be a good idea to enter the World Series of Poker. Hell, if he isn't going to be making money this year why not try right? (or in his case he felt like he could just throw away money).He did well on the first day of the tournament, doubling up on his total, but day two he went all in on a pair of 2's. That didn't work out well for him, since the other guy had pocket Jacks.

Everyone is doing something different during the lockout, and I found this story to be a little more funny than the others. It had to be cool for the other people at his table to be playing poker with an NBA All-Star. Pierce was signing stuff when he took some poker hands off, and seemed to be a nice guy from what I hear.

Nate Robinson on the other hand says he might try football if the NBA lockout continues. I hope he didn't think too hard on this, because the NFL is also in a lockout. If you got time check out here why he feels he would be good for a football team, kind of a funny read. Good luck to him as he tries to bring publicity to an organization.

In other news, it was announced recently that Kelvin Sampson will move up the charts a little bit, and become the lead assistant coach for the Houston Rockets. Kind of a sad day for the Bucks, because we really did lose a good coach. I'm not sure what the Bucks will do with the opening they have, but with the lockout I'm sure they have plenty of time to figure it out.
