Getting on a Plane27 Apr 2006
I'm excited. I can't wait to meet the final 10 players and see what they are made of. I have a few ideas as to who I think "has game" but I have to remained bias and won't tell you who I think will win it.
Right now I'm at the airport with Mommy, little Foxy, and my agent Brian Balsbaugh. We actually got to the airport a little late, but having a wheelchair with us is a big time bonus.
My mother is 67 years old and broke her leg years ago which sometimes still bothers her. She can walk fine, but when we get to the airport "all of a sudden" her leg starts acting up and we get wheelchair service all the way to the front of the long security line. Sweet!
So the plan this weekend is pretty busy. Tomorrow I'm doing MTV Canada at about 5:30pm and then from there I'm headed to Gretzky's to meet the crew as well as the finalists for appetizers and drinks.
The next day we are shooting a pretty funny FCP commercial. I don't want to spoil it for you, but I can tell you that I think you'll all like it.
The of course on Sunday, you can join us at www.fullcontactpoker.com for a live webcast of the final table. If you haven't already done so, also check out the totally free pool that we are running during the final table. Click here for details on how to enter
The next day is the final of the Daniel Negreanu Canadian Collegiate Poker Championships, and after that I'll be doing Off the Record and other various media stops.
I have more to share, but the plane is about to board... see ya.
