I have come to the conclusion the real reason I keep the blog going is to offer a lively alternative to the usual boring topics you normally get from other Saskatchewan-based media folks — like their coverage of the Garth Brooks concert, for instance, or better yet, the ‘Riders. With that said, here is my World Series…

ROBERTO LUONGO WSOP POKER UPDATE

I just thought I would update you on the progress of Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
