New York Giant Declares “All In!”

One thing I’ve found strangely coincidental since Black Friday has been the subsequent use of the phrase “All In” across competitive sport. The poker magazine of the same name (which I briefly edited in 2004-05) was one of the first casualties of Black Friday, and since its ultimate demise in May of 2011, it’s like everyone suddenly began embracing the phrase in their own semi-trademarkable way. The New York Giants, Michigan Wolverines, Addidas (on behalf of all soccer), Auburn families (sold out), even Hawaiian cockfighting … Either we as poker players are losing control of these five-letters-and-a-space, or the rest of the world is paying homage to the game, the life it gave to the mainstream.

For NFL safety Antrel Rolle, an aggressive poker philosophy is something close to his heart, right up there with New York City and winning the Super Bowl:
