Welcome, welcome, thank you all for visiting. Today's post proffers one of those unintentionally funny photographs, served up deep within the slick, 16-full-color-page brochure our friends at Bodog sent out in announcing their WSOP-connected marketing conference, to be held July 23-26 at the Wynn in Las Vegas. I'm not even going to comment further on the conference's theme: "SEDUCE, INDUCE, IGNITE."
Too easy. Instead, I was just doing one of those meaningless over/under bets with myself: How many times would Ayre's pic appear in a 16-page glossy promoting one of his marketing events? My guess: six.
But the under was correct... 'twas only four. One of the four, though, was this composite beauty, the backdrop for a full-page "Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker" ad near the back:
It's good to see Calvin bestowing his goodwill on all these little people, isn't it? However, a count of names in the caption shows that three of the pictured munchkins are so little that they don't even have to be named. (Or, allegiance is a fickle thing.)
Still, I thought the photo was a major hoot even before I counted and tried to match up the names (fat chance of that) --- and I'm pretty sure you'll think so, too. And while Calvin is so-o-o much fun to post about, I still like playing at Bodog; the games are perpetually among the loosest and softest you'll find... even if some of the other Bodog stuff is loose and soft in a different way.
