Been away for too long

I really shouldn't have taken so long to update the blog. There have been a lot of big things which have happened since the last entry

First of all, Cindy and I had a great wedding in October in Gatlinburg, TN. The Smokie Mountains are beautiful in the fall and we had great weather for the wedding and everything went really well.


All I ll say about the WVU Football season is that the team really played great in the Fiesta Bowl and really made the state proud.

Fiesta Bowl Football

In January, I filed for the office of Prosecuting Attorney. The election is in May and I hope it goes well because I really think that I can help out the people of my home county.

Finally on the 16th of February I won my first Stud 8b tourney on UlitmateBet. It was great. Winning a tournament is always a thrill, no matter how many opponents or how much is won. It's why we play the game. Here is the hand that won the tournament for me:
