They've been airing the World Series of Poker main event for the last few weeks on ESPN, which will culminate with the final table on November 11. A couple episodes ago, this one kid, Nick Sliwinski, felt like he was being bullied by another player. Sliwinski made a tough call that turned out to be the correct move, and then his sister (who he sure likes to hug and kiss a lot) started yelling, "who's the bully now?" And Sliwinski liked that, so he said it, too. This is not surprising, since the guy liked to yell the results of every hand over to his family and friends. Not annoying at all to the rest of the players, I'm sure.
Cut to the episode that aired last night. Sliwinski ended up being knocked out in twelfth place or so, and he went over to get hugs from his family. At some point during the few days that had passed since the "bully" incident, these people had gone out and had t-shirts made. I suppose you can guess what they said on the back. That's right:
"Whose the bully now?"
Sigh. Sliwinski won somewhere in the neighborhood of $500,000. My only hope is that he will spend just a tiny portion of that on some English language books for his family.
