It turns out Jesus doesn't mind this gambling stuff after all
I shelled out $20 to watch the World Series of Poker Main Event final table online, and watched this little Asian holy roller, Jerry Yang, win $8.25 million.
Whenever Yang had someone all-in, and he was ahead in the hand, he would literally start yelling out prayers to God begging that his top pair would hold up. There were times where I thought he was speaking in tongues at the table (although that was probably just Thai).
Anyway, kids, just remember: go to church every Sunday, say your prayers before you go to bed, and you too can hit a runner-runner straight and win a shitload of scrilla.
Update: I just realized that most of you aren't going to see the replay of this final table for about a month... but believe me, the ESPN telecast will play out like an insanely ironic Jack Chick tract.
