Living the Dream


Yep, that’s me. A very long time ago.

When I was a kid, I was a skateboarder. I loved skating. If there wasn’t snow on the ground, I was on my skateboard. My dream was to have my own model, with my name on the deck. Every skater I knew had the same dream. I wrecked my ankle, found other pursuits, and never got that model with my signature on the bottom of the deck, but now I have the next best thing. A Blue Shark Optics model, with… wait for it… my signature on it!

I have been a fan of Blue sharks for many years, wearing them in tournaments and extolling their virtues. Last year I joined the pro team. After talking with the owner about what I thought the perfect model would be, he offered me a model and we went to work on getting it right. My model has soft arms, because I’m not sued to wearing glasses and I get sore spots behind my ears from some glasses. It also has adjustable nose pieces and a wrap around frame to keep out ambient light that causes reflections on the inside of the lens.

They look great, they feel great, and they are so good that even my signature won’t hurt sales!

I also want to offer a big congratulations to my pal Chad Holloway who got to live one of his dreams recently with the launch of his own comic book. The World Series of Zombies features many characters you will recognize from the poker world and will be for sale at The Rio while supplies last. I even bought a shirt with poker zombies on it from Run Good Gear!
