Backroll Management

The video of Shannon Shorr’s drunken shenanigans last summer in Las Vegas that almost led to his becoming the Christopher Reeve of Poker has been posted on YouTube. 22-year-old kids with lots of money are so funny in how they almost die … though I have to say, it is kinda refreshing to see the youthful purity of engaging in such prop-bettable pursuits for nothing but the glory. Gavin Smith wouldn’t do this for less than $12,000, I am sure.

    I’ve read the title of this story at least five times before I realized it was *BACK*-roll, and not “bankroll.” Well played, Dan!

    Me too, BJ! I kept thinking, “What does bankroll management have to do with the ridiculous antics of a young pro?”

    I wrote the hedline so that only people who get the greatness of the comics would understand it.
