Michael Phelps playing in the WSOP

August 19, 2008

One of my biggest qualms with poker, and the poker media, is lack of quality content. I should probably comment on the FTOPS winners, $500k here, back to back wins $170k there….blah blah blah. Some cats I don’t know won a few tournies I wish I did. (obv jealous and bitter).

However, the biggest story over the past two days for the main poker media outlets is Mr. 8 Gold Medals stated in a press conference interview that he thinks it’d be cool to play the WSOP. Sweet.

Hopefully he brings his $40M of endorsement dollars into the poker economy. We need it.
