Omaha can give anyone gray hairs and if Patrik Antonius had any it would probably have changed color after this horrific beat. I've always regarded Patrik as one of the nicest and most humble pros, but that all changed after seeing this clip. "Good luck buddy. God call by the way, or good raise, good re-re-raise.
