    Gotta say … the video made me laugh. The fact that it took place in the middle of a regular ole public streetway made it extra idiotic awesome.

    Also nice when Phil provides the entertainment, as opposed tries to be the entertainment.

    I’m still cleaning up the vomit after watching that clip.

    Also, congrats for Dwyte Pilgrim for taking down the WPT event. Well deserved win.
