I Challenge Doyle to Play Me Atari 2600 Football

Since Patrik is into making challenges, here is one for him. I read where he has taken up golf. So, I challenge him to play for $100,000 a hole at Bali Hai Golf Club, any time from now until the end of August. Surely a twenty-seven-year-old ex-professional tennis player from Finland can beat a seventy-four-year-old guy with an artificial shoulder and who has to use a crutch to walk. What do you say, Patrik? -
-Doyle Brunson

I would like Doyle to know that I accept his challenge (not that I had much of a choice, I would be the laughing stock of the poker world if I backed down from this challenge) and if I have until August to practice and improve, hopefully I can make a big dent in Todd's inheritance. Seeing Todd cringe when I win millions is going to be worth just as much as the money.

Hi Robert

Just wanted to send you kudos for one fine blog that you have. Of all the poker blogs that I subscribe to (a lot!) yours and Dr Paulys blog are two of my favorite blogs.

Please keep it up!

I used to be so addicted to Atari football in 1984.

Lawrence- thanks for reading. This has got to be your dream comments section with Dr. Pauly posting right below you.

Dr Pauly- Ahhh...Atari football. So pure. So simple. So good.

ok, let me say this. I am good at pretty much every video football game to have reached production, and I have spent many hours playing the writer of this blog in all of them. While I can certainly beat him at any year of Madden, I would NOT challenge Robert to a game of Atari football. The guy can't be beat at it.

Boy, I loved that dreamcast football. What a season that was...
