Tao of Pokerati: Under Press-ure

Just earlier today, Benjo was delivering his Angriest Frenchman scorn, telling me essentially to suck-it, because “You are never in zee bahd mood, Dahn Meehowskee!” But that was before Miami John Cernuto suffered a medical emergency in the $2,500 Razz tourney (he’s mostly OK now, or at least in stable condition), and yours truly tried to cover it Pokerati-style … only to end up in a scuffle with security. Major tiltage ensued, and Pauly, of course, is right there to capture my fiery journo-righteous ire as I totally misidentify my antagonist, and Dr. P, not on tilt, reports truer facts of this unusual tournament situation.

    Dan, I think your anger at this situation is extremely out of line and seriously misplaced. Your comparisons to Iran and the Olympics are inexplicable.

    I guarantee that if an athlete, let’s say a sprinter, passed out moments before a gold medal event just out of the view of the fans in the stadium, Olympic officials would block any and all photographers from taking pictures of that athlete. (Obviously, if it happened in full view of the entire stadium, there’s much less they could do about the situation.)

    And the comparison to Iran is simply absurd. The amount of anger you expressed on this podcast would be nothing compared to the anger felt by people risking their lives to protest a major society-wide injustice to hear their situation compared to yours.

    BJ, I am not going to defend myself on this one (even though you are right about Iran and wrong about the Olympics). That’s the purpose of the episode … Pauly saw me angry in the heat of a moment and wanted to share it, since I normally maintain a sober composure.

    I think Dan needs a vacation.
