I've had it up to HERE!!! with Poker on TV!

What the hell happened in the past year? People just discovered this damn card game existed?

Celebrity Poker
World Series of Poker
MacGyver's Poker w/o Cards
World Poker Challenge
The Muppets Play Poker

Stupid Party Poker.com commercials.

It's on Bravo, and Fox Sports, and ESPN all the fecking time.

enough with the poker.

It happens with everything.

remember when the "queer" guys had an eye for us.
and all those shows about cutting up peoples faces and sucking out their fat to make them pretty
and extreme house renovations galore.

poker is a hip thing right now, once eveyrone bets their lives away, itll pass. until then
-puts on some shades-
-pushes all his chips in- LET IT RIDE BABYYYY!

Poker being considered a sport is retarded

bumping a sport like Basketball or Baseball to ESPN2 is even more retarded

Football can never be moved to another channel because of Poker, because it's the Sport of The Gods

Why does the music in those ads have chickens clucking in the background?

It mystifies me. And freaks me out.

Watching poker on TV would actually be ok if they didn't have profiles of the players and no announcers. And if they didn't edit out tons of hands.

I can't stand card games, either playing them or watching them on TV.

I don't quite get it. Especially when people take games like that seriously, like my cousin. He was getting pissed because he was losing his own game of "scene it"



He's the head of his chess team, and math team.

But he needs to grow up a bit.......

Years ago our neighbors had a picnic/party and after eating people gathered around to play poker. My mum happened to mention that when play got boring she was apt to cheat. Oh. My. God. Dead silence. Everything stopped and everyone stared at her in utter horror. Apparently what to her was simply a game to them was deadly serious. I don't even think they were playing for money (because she wouldn't have played for money -- she figured life was enough of a gamble, she didn't want to gamble on a game). Go figure.
