Happy New Year all you crazy GCWA-ites
Hope 2009 brings many blessings to each and every one of ya.
So, how did each of you guys ring in the new year? Me, I went to a really lame apartment party and wound up leaving before midnight so I could watch the countdown at home. Yea, the party was that lame...
So...c'mon, at least one of you guys had to have had a better new years party than that...any takers?

My wife and I came into town to hang out with the parents, the old man is a wine merchandiser so he didn't get home until late, but he brought a 3 liter of Korbel Champagne with him, We drank and had all kinds of food, hot wings, sausage, tamales, chips and dip, land shark beer, etc
Not very wild but no thaving to deal with a crowd is my style

Sounds like a good time, wish I could've been there...better than being around a bunch of dorks trying to one up each other on Madden 09
I did drink two bottles of Champagne, though...the old man was drinking Pink Champagne...you might need to give him some crap about that. Although, you were drinking those Flirtinis on Xmas eve, haha

I personally spent New Year's with my wife's family. We had a pretty good time, with the kids watching Ice Age: The Meltdown while the guys headed to another room and had a poker tournament. I did pretty well, knocking out a couple of my brother-in-laws, but I got suckered into challenging a guy with my full house, not realizing he had a flush (d'oh!). Still, it was a good time, and we've set up another game for tonight.
We also got to watch a bunch of illegal fireworks go off (San Antonio had a ban burn in effect, but that didn't stop people from finding them somewhere).
And yes, we too had wings! :)

the last time i played poker, i was the first on kicked out of the tourny.
it was a 20 dollar buy in. well, after i lost my shirt there, we started a side cash game when enough people got eliminated.
i ended up walking away with 400 bucks :| i went with 60. w00t

Maybe I read it wrong, Ace...but it sounded like your full house lost to a flush...
You guys do know that a full house beats a flush, right?
I hope I read it wrong or you guys play a different way, cause I'd hate to see GCWA's boyo lose some money over a falsified beat, lol
Sounds like a great day, otherwise, poker, wings, Ice Age Meltdown...can't beat that :)

*Goes back and rereads my post* Whoops... reverse those two *lol*
I wrote that too quickly earlier on my way out the door. That's what I get.
