In sports, there are records that seem unbreakable. Lou Gehrig's streak of consecutive games played was a record that was supposed to stand for all time until Cal Ripken, Jr broke it. Roger Maris' 61 homers was another that was supposed to be next to unbreakable. However, Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa, and Barry Bonds have all hit more in a single season than Maris.

"Oh my God, Barry Shulman is such a fucking luckbox!" That seemed to be the cry by many railbirds at the end of the World Series of Poker Europe when Shulman beat Negreanu to take the bracelet. Here is how it went down. Daniel was leading with around 6 Million chips and Shulman had around 4 Million. On a jack high flop, Shulman bet out and Daniel made a raise to 900,000.

Lady Junkie said that she is in favor of positive discrimination when it comes to poker tournaments. Positive discrimination? Why? Poker is not Affirmative Action. Poker is supposed to be open to all players, regardless of race, color, creed, etc. Why does there need to be positive discrimination? Hasn't there been enough AA in this country? In so many businesses, Affirmative Action has resulted in the "token minority.
