Taj Poker Room 400x300
If you've been following the news wires over the last few days, then you know that Trump Entertainment is filing bankruptcy and the Trump Taj Mahal could be closing in November. With that closure comes the shutdown of Trump Taj's Poker Room, a room that I personally consider my home poker room. Up until a couple years ago, Atlantic City was the closest place I could travel to and play live poker. From 2006 to 2008, I was up there almost every month and every few months from 2009 to around 2011.

It is Time to Turn John Cena Heel

Cena 215x300
I was going to continue my breakdown of WrestleMania XXX this week but there are only three matches (besides the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal) that we know for certain are happening. Instead, I want to talk a bit about the state of the man that is currently the WWE's greatest Superstar, John Cena. John Cena is easily the top dog in the WWE, and whether you love him or hate him, you have to admire his work ethic and commitment to the company. He does everything that the company asks of him and more, and is the hero of kids all over the world.
