I am an avid poker fan and player (although avid does not equal good). I've been a fan of the WSOP for awhile now and follow it every year - not just the TV coverage, but the other events and thanks to ESPN360.com, you can watch some of the final tables to their entirety (around 6-7 hour long gaming sessions).
Anyways, I'm reading a blog about the final table and they're talking about how the players are making their entrance. One person who has caught my attention is Joe Cada. Why? Because of this:
Joe Cada was in typical form, surrounded by his friends and family wearing University of Michigan gear with "The Kid" on it.
This quote is taken from ESPN's main poker blog. I think it's kind of cool to have that kind of visibility, even though we aren't sponsoring him or anything.
Now for the spoiler - he is officially the chip leader and will convene for heads up play tonight (no idea when the actual taping is) against Darvin Moon (the old chip leader) and hopefully he'll still be wearing some Michigan gear.
I am always up for more Michigan publicity.
