DOYLEISM OF THE DAY: “The ultimate goal should be doing your best and enjoying it.”

by Doyle Brunson |  Published: Jul 01, '10

Print-icon
 

I went to the dentist Wednesday instead of playing in the 25K tournament at the WSOP.  I desperately want to get this implant stuff out of the way because it’s driving me crazy. It’s like getting on a Ferris Wheel at the circus, once you start, you can’t stop. Six months ago, I thought I would be through before now but when you go into sinus lifts, extractions, bone grafts, healing caps, etc. It seems you never get through. It will be October before it’s over.

It is absolutely amazing how different people interpret things. In my last blog I said I get along with Phil Ivey if we don’t have to use the same bathroom. Surely the entire world would know that was a joke. I remember seeing the movie Brian’s Song where a teammate of Gayle Sayers said that and I thought it was very funny. But no, I’ve been accused of racism, being a redneck and a hillbilly. One article said I wanted separate bathrooms because of the difference of our penis size and I would be embarrassed. It’s comical but also a little bit aggravating.

Daniel Negreanu is pretty talkative about our TOC bets (which I still like). It’s too bad I didn’t get to the Rio instead of the dentist. Dan said he would take Bill Reynolds, Will Nelson and Tom Manchese against Chan, Greenstein and Hellmuth. Wow, would he have got that on! Is that offer good for the main event? Or any other tournament you can find?

I’ve got an interesting bet for Daniel. I’ll take 10 DoylesRoom pros against any 10 Poker Stars pros in the main event. 4 bets, who goes farther, who cashes, who makes final table and who wins. That will be fun and maybe Dan can finally pick himself.

I see where Ivey and Juanda have motor homes in the parking lot at the Rio. That’s a great idea and I have a motor home in Montana that I’m going to bring to the 2011 WSOP. That would be a neat spot to take the long breaks in. Also, you could sleep there if you had an early start the next day.

If the motor home is a rockin, don't come a knockin. The black striker will like this blog since it has the word penis it, she dreams about Daniel's all day long.

A PC world doesn't really have a sense of humor. Then some folks look to be offended by other races, but if someone of their race says the exact same thing, it's all good humor and laughter. I truly don't get that one. I'd much rather think we're all equal and over that kind of thing, but I guess not. I've been known to use my native american looks to feign being offended by something just to get tickled at how quick they start backpedaling and stuttering - then I just laugh, because it really doesn't matter to me. Like when people call me "Chief" as in, "here's your burger, Chief." "DID you just call ME chief?" "Oh, I, um, well I uh... " and I just bust out laughing at the silliness of someone being nervous about that. Who cares? Call me "Pocahontas" if you want, I'll just laugh.

I'm glad I'm not famous. It only really matters how Phil takes it anyway and I'm quite sure he can stand up for himself if he doesn't like something.

I just couldn't resist responding to you on this one.

Let's take your question about "pricks" to the superlative and a vote.

If we were to take a vote of the bloggers on CP, I think that you would be voted the "biggest prick" of all.

You did set yourself up for that, didn't you?

Black Striker thinks he can win the "biggest prick" contest. But you have seniority, having haunted these blogs continually. So, my vote goes for you.

Stop talking as though you have any clue what other pros think or feel about Brunson, DN or Ivey.

You are a delusional pathetic human being who steals a dead mans name and comes on a msg board to insult those whom you wish you were.

Wonder why you changed your name, now? Couldnt keep track of all your lies?

Just finished your book Doyle "Godfather of Poker" - I thought it was excellent - would love to get a pic with you and get it signed. I hope one of these loudmouth wannabes sits down and gets schooled in a game where they can't hit and run ya - maybe you could set a game up online like the Durr challenge since I doubt they would have the guts to show their faces.

So if you can solve a complicated math problem one time does that make you a mathematician? NO...So if you crack one semi off the color joke about another race does that make you a racist? OF COURSE NOT!!!

Get over it America...everyone of different races crack jokes about other races...just the truth and my 2 cents

The Black Striker and Texasturdgobler arguing?! I would have thought they would be soulmates....as they both call anyone who diesagrees with them 'racists'.

I noticed in Doyles' last blog he expressed his dismay with people who do that.

So texasturdgobler is supposed to be Doyle's friend? I wonder if Doyle knows that his 'frineds' think he is a racist.

BTW...just got back from the WSOP. Everyone is talking about the rumor that the RIO has been sold...and that the WSOP will be at Ceasar's next year. Anyone heard anything about that?

oldschool:

Just back from the WSOP? Bet they sent you home C.O.D.

I challenge you to find any posting of mine that even infers that Doyle is a racist. Since you won't be able to do so, maybe your best course of action would be to stfu.

And aren't you the howler monkey that refers to Mexican Americans as "Beaners"? I think that qualifies as "racist".

Doyle, it was a ballsy joke, but it was VERY obviously a joke. I don't think anyone with any common sense would think you're racist based on that joke or would make such a public comment about Ivey or black people if you meant it in a racist way. In fact, I'd say the joke was overtly ANTI-racist in that it was making fun of racism quite obviously. Society is conditioned to be overly PC nowadays, and it's kinda annoying. I say keep saying whatever in the hell you want and don't worry what people think of you. And this is coming from the guy who started the rallying cry against your anti-atheist comment. (Which, admittedly, was more about awareness than true outrage against your comment.)
