    Mystery Meat, as a friend, I'm telling you that you really, really, really ought to rethink that last post.

    I'm not watching the Classic til they show hearts.

    "All BYH has left is the queen of spades...but hearts haven't been broken SO DOOLEY HAS TO LEAD WITH THE ACE OF SPADES!!! OH MY!!!!"

    I can't wait to hear Norman Chad expounding on the finer points of 'beating for the bitch."

    I think Uno would kick ass on TV.

    I can't wait for football season, when ESPN Classic runs three college football games that will happen the next day on Friday afternoon -- the best from each one, supposedly -- in addition to the random ones you might cross at 2 a.m.

    But WSOP? Like we won't see enough of that on ESPN, ESPN2 and Bill Simmons' ESPN6.

    Aw shucks, I don't mean 'nuttin. I just remember when Kool would advertise a Grand Slam of Spades or some such thing (it might even be around, for all I know). Though to be fair, college kids of all races play it.

    Someone please explain to me the difference between spades and hearts (one's black, the other's red, but besides that).

    Also, does anyone play cribbage anymore?

    Cribbage kicks ass. I used to try to play online, but the combination of a crappy Internet connection and wildly varying time limits for playing a card took that out of the equation.

    Every once in a few months I'll get into a cribbage mood and go onto Yahoo. Never played it in the real world where you have to move the pegs on the board yourself.

    My wife and I play cribbage occasionally. Cool game.

    As for ESPN Classic, they ought to run programing counter to the seasons at hand. I've got plenty of live college football once Spetember starts. I need that fix in May, just like baseball addicts would watch anything they could get their hands on in January, even Rangers-Orioles from 1988.

    Only problem is this time of year, where we've just gotten through soccer, basketball and hockey, have football upcoming and are smack in the middle of baseball. Oddly enough, poker (or at least the WSOP) WOULD in theory be counter-seasonal programming, except that there's at least a dozen channels showing it in some form (aside: why hasn't some enterprising douchebag porno director done a World Series of Strip Poker PPV?). Maybe some skiing to remind people in the Southwest and Midwest that snow does exist, insane heat be damned.

    I'd be all for Risk. A well-worked Australian Offensive plowing through Kamchatka would be a beautiful thing to watch.

    Sorry! Do you move 10 spaces forward or one back? Split the 7 or use it on one piece? Switch places with the red piece five spaces from your safety zone or the last piece green has on the board? Decisions, decisions.
