Email from Scott – Guys Night

Posted by in Emails from Scott

Last Friday, I was sitting in the San Jose airport waiting for a flight to Vegas (wedding-location scouting trip, not degenerate gambling trip) and was checking email on the phone. As I was reading this one, the smile and then laughter gave away who it was from – Jason looked over and said “Must be an email from Scott”. It started off innocently enough. My old poker buddies were getting together for a night of light drinking and bullshitting. This game ran for 8 years but this is the first…read more

Emails from Scott: Red Sox vs Astros

Posted by in Baseball, Emails from Scott

If you haven’t noticed yet, either because you’re living under a rock, or you have no interest in baseball and no friends who have an interest in baseball (in which case, I am so so sorry for you) – it’s getting to be baseball time. Pitchers and catchers have reported, Spring Training is underway, and some people are starting to get a little rabid about it. Having been born and raised in Houston, the Astros are my team; heartbreaking though that often is. I have a fondness for the A’s,…read more

Emails from Scott – Valentine’s Day

Posted by in Emails from Scott, Love, Not Poker

I have never understood the hate some people feel for Valentine’s Day. It’s a day dedicated to love – what could possibly be wrong with that? Oh sure, it’s commercialized, but so is Christmas. And sure, if your significant other is only getting their act together on this one day to tell you that you’re loved, you’ve likely got a problem. BUT STILL – love and flowers and chocolate! How could anything with all that be BAD? I know many men find it to be a landmine of epic proportions….read more

I have news

Posted by in Emails from Scott, Love, Vegas

‘Round about last summer I went to Vegas for a weekend, part “see my reporter friends before they hit the downward part of the WSOP”; but bigger part – to meet up with an awesome dude I had met a few months prior, and maybe have a date or two and see if he was as good in person as he was on paper. We had our first date at the MGM West Wing Bar, followed by dinner at Wolfgang Puck’s, then rounded things off with a stop at the…read more

Emails from Scott #2

Posted by in Emails from Scott

If you so happen to find yourself in Austin, TX this weekend and are in need of a cheap diversion, Scott has a suggestion. W, now that you got your meds under control you need to start coming drinking with me. My new thing is Sunday night at Bull McCabe’s because no one is really there and I like to sit on the porch and play “Homeless person Scavenger hunt” for cigarettes. I send them all over looking for things like traffic cones and bicycles and reward them with smokes…read more

Emails from Scott – the beginning

Posted by in Emails from Scott

Starting a new feature on the blog; one that I hope you find as amusing as I do. I get emails from Scott Mc almost every day, because I rarely turn on the Yahoo chat and our friendship requires that we communicate over the most mundane. I’ve asked him time and time again to start blogging again; turning his rants and social commentary into posts. He consistently refuses, stating that I am the muse & target audience anyway. So, this is the next best thing. If you’ve met ScottMc before,…read more
