AIR MAX 90 - Laser Blue

New pick up this weekend.  Air Max 90 in the "laser blue" colorway. Just a really awesome color that really POPS off the shoe.  This is one of the OG colorways and I am glad Nike retroed this correctly.  I am a sucka for Air Maxs, 90, 95, 97 love them all.  Peep the kicks...

and yes...I flipped the white laces for black ones.....they are my shoes and I like them that way...keep the hate to yourselves if you dont like 'em, dont do it to YOUR pair.

"Battlecat" by Eric Tan

"Battlecat" print by the awesome artist ERIC TAN.  This is a signed artist proof. 

 Eric did piece as an homage to the Chinese style scroll paintings, but with a cool retro twist.  Instead of the iconic tiger that is usually depicted, he used another modern icon.  One from when we were kids.  He-man's trusted beast...BATTLE CAT!  yeah...sweet.

Now I have to get this bad boy framed. I am scared I am going to get raped.  I swear framing places are a rip...but cant do it yourself...since it is a weird size.  Oh well.  It is a bad ass piece so it is worth it.

More gear....

Some more stuff came in...pieces are coming together...very excited!

My new toy!!! CANON 60D

I finally got my new toy.  I made the jump to a DSLR. I have been waiting for this camera for a bit and now I have it.  Here is the unboxing!

My fed ex was horrible...ugh. They tried to deliver it 3xs on 10/7 and I got the notice from a nice neighbor on 10/12.  I never got the notice since it was taped to the front security gate and I NEVER enter from there.  Anyways, I had to wake up and get to the hub at 8AM to pick this up.  

 YAY! here it is!

 SO SEXY....
I have a bag, SDHC card, grip and extra battery, R strap and I need to order some lenses and I can begin shooting!

I will post up my impressions soon.

Once in a lifetime flop....

Typical Saturday night game at Dave's with the usual crew.  We were 10 handed, .25/.50 blinds with a minimum $25 buy in.  Timing was right before midnight on 10/02/10.  I was dealt the Queen/Jack of diamonds.  I was on the button and raised to $2.50 in a limped pot of 4 players. Everyone calls. I flop the stone cold nuts...ROYAL FLUSH.  I raised and get called on the turn, raise again on the river and get called....I was lucky "the villain" in this hand had the nut straight but if I had the flush I would of won anyways.  Either way....flopping a royal flush does not happen often.  I got this from a forum...I of course did NOT write this:

Consider the 3 flop cards and your 2 hole cards all together, there are only 4 combinations of 5 cards that make a royal flush (one for each suit). There are 52c5 = 2,598,960 combinations of 5 cards, so the probability of flopping a royal flush is 4 / 2,598,960 = 1 / 649,740.
It was pretty cool....something I can wipe off the bucket list I guess. "I have flopped a royal flush."  As they say....SO SICK!
