Co-Editor’s Correction + Our Holiday Gift to You

Chops here.

During our weekly WCP game last night, it was pointed out to me that a recent article I wrote–I believe it was referred to as "the savages one"– contained a photo that, according to the phrasing of the article, Injun_2 looked as if I was implying that the photo in it was I.  Or put more coherently, I implied that the picture of the Indian was me.   

Here’s the evidence at hand: "If these wonderful savages declare poker as a Class II game, you’re looking at one guy (me, Chops) who will be celebrating Thanksgiving all over again." Wrapped around  this sentence was the photo you see at right.

So for the record, this is not me dressed up like some heavy-metal-native-american-rocker.  In fact, if you Google Image search "happy native american" as I did, you will stumble upon this gem.

As you’ve noticed over the past week, our content is being posted at a drip-drip clip as opposed to the normal flowing poker-prose fountain that you’ve come to expect from us (I would say "poker-prose flood," but OddJack has that market corned).  As it turns out, over the past week, 2/3 of the Wicked Chops crew have been very busy with their OTHER business (a PR firm), and I’ve been sick as a dog on top of just getting a puppy that pisses on my carpet every hour or Chopsso.  So content and concentration have been at a minimum.  This point is further evidenced by the most pathetic online AND live game showings I’ve had in any 48-hour period the past two days.  Truly embarrassing.  I don’t even know who I am anymore.  Who am I?  I don’t know (that is me though at left at said weekly WCP game).

Here’s what I do know: Wicked Chops Poker will not be lax on the content over the holiday season…work, travel, or puppies be damned.  That is our pledge to you, our ever-increasing reader-base.  Because without you, there would be no us. 

I’m kidding about that.  We’d still exist.  And we’d still be writing about poker.  So fuck you guys.

Kidding again.  We like you.  And we like that you like poker.

Carry on.

    Chops, that may not be you in the picture, but it very well could be one day. Just follow his lead and grow out the hair, man. Seriously, check that dude out! He’s a fucking rocker!
    Poker needs another longhair and I think you could be that man…

    How about the “Dirty Bird” Chops, could you do the DB. I know it has no native American ties, but it’s annoying and I think It’d be funny. Funny and annoying. After winning pots.
