Poker on Ice

Triple-Axeling the Shark?

I swear we’re not going gay(er than usual) here at Pokerati … but that song we told you about a long time ago, Poker Face by Lady Gaga, has now been turned into a male figure skating routine:

In preparation for the upcoming Vancouver Olympics, US figure skating champ Johnny Weir skated to the song about bluffin’ with muffins for an exhibition performance at US Nationals last week. Glad to see that the word about poker/lesbianism is still spreading.

And to prove we’re not homo just because we’re paying attention to figure skating, here’s Rush Limbaugh tarding rockin’ out to Lady Gaga during the talent portion of the 2010 Miss America contest:

(Oh, wait, Miss America, right …)

    I’m not sure which is worse, Lady Gaga, the skating routine, or Rush. At least you didn’t post Rush skating to Lady Gaga.

    I may or may not have looked for that.

    As one of your ~10 gay readers, I want to thank you for catching me up to speed on gay cultural events I missed while playing poker and watching basketball this weekend.

    There also was the Grammy’s this weekend. Beyonce killed it — like setting records and shit. And though Elton John wore Lady Gaga face paint for a duet with Lady Gaga, our Poker Face heroine got shut out in Best Song, Best Record, and Best Album!

    Still contend she represents the game to the masses moreso than Phil Hellmuth.

    Who’s Elton John? Does he have a poker song out?

    In case you missed it, the NFL Pro Bowl had a lot of great offensive plays. Oh, and Romo choked under the fake pressure of an exhibition game just like he does under the real pressure of a playoff game.

    I saw Romo’s driving down the field down by a touchdown in the 4th. i turned the channel before he threw the interception, thinking I had seen this before.

    Fantastic track, and I’m not even into that type of music!
