    A lot of FanForce boards have something like a "Random Thread" for anything-goes discussion, but saw that you guys lacked one. I'm starting it with a funny situation that happened in New Jersey today, courtesy of CardPlayer.com.

    An odd situation came up in today's play in the World Poker Tour event @ the Borgata. At one of the tables, a pot was raised pre-flop and there was one caller. The action went around to the big blind, who then realized he had only been dealt one card. Under New Jersey law, since there was already action, the big blind could not be given the top card and he was given the option of either playing his one-card hand or mucking the hand. The big blind mucked, and the hand was checked down by the two remaining players. It was found that the big blind would've chopped (split) the pot had he played. [face_laugh]

    Everyone at the table was in good spirits about the error, and they all laughed about it afterwards.

    I follow independent baseball, especially my hometown team, the Brockton Rox of the Can-Am League, so I thought I'd let you guys know that in addition to the New Jersey Jackals, there will be another New Jersey team in that league starting this season: the Sussex Skyhawks, who will play their home games at Skylands Park in Augusta, NJ. You can get more info on the new team on the Skyhawks' site.

    Oh wow! They're actually trying to make a new stadium for minors in the Meadowlands, too. They're going to be called the Cliff Hawks. That's gonna suck for traffic, though. :[

    Just what the Meadowlands needs...ANOTHER minor league team.

    You're sweet as a honey bee
    But like a honey bee stings
    You've gone and left my heart in pain
    All you left is our favorite song
    The one we danced to all night long
    It used to bring sweet memories
    Of a tender love that used to be

    Now it's the same old song
    But with a different meaning
    Since you been gone
    It's the same old song
    But with a different meaning
    Since you been gone

    A sentimental fool am I
    to hear a old love song
    And wanna cry
    But the melody keeps haunting me
    Reminding me how in love we used to be
    Keep hearing the part that used to touch my heart
    Saying together forever
    Breaking up never

    It's the same old song
    But with a different meaning
    Since you been gone
    It's the same old song
    But with a different meaning
    Since you been gone

    Precious memories keep a lingering on
    Everytime I hear our favorite song
    Now you're gone
    Left this emptiness
    I only reminisce
    The happiness we spent
    We used to dance on the music
    Make romance through the music

    It's the same old song
    But with a different meaning
    Since you been gone
    It's the same old song
    But with a different meaning
    Since you been gone

    It's the same old song
    But with a different meaning
    Since you been gone
    It's the same old song
    But with a different meaning
    Since you been gone

    Thanks for hanging out Cat! Bravo's was pretty good. We are hoping to arrive on Friday night into Monroeville, and then go get a drink in 'The City'. You and your crew should come out and meet up.

    So I'm watching star wars the other day (big suprise there) Its the scene where R2 is about to be capture by the jawas and R2 starts to whistle at the SAME exact time and the same EXACT way my R2 phone rings I didn't hear the first ring because they were in sync that GOOD!

    The lady on the other end was a telemarketer for american cancer society looking for $ of course my reply I just raised money for you at a charity event and described the whole fanforce thing.

    This isn't really that random but since it doesn't require it's own thread I figured I'd just stick the info in here :p. I've got a Fantasy Football league on Yahoo and I wanted to drop an invite to you guys. You can find all of the information by going to the thread in the Northeast Regional boards.

    Just bumping this thread and post:

    Just wanted to double-check and see if anyone was interested in playing. Still have spots left and I'm trying to fill them before the draft next month.

    Just found out about this, but I wanted to congratulate the state of New Jersey and Monmouth Park on being selected to host the Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships next year. It's a world-class event and I hope Monmouth Park does your state proud. :D
