See that photo to the right? That's Boris Becker, a man without a soul. A creepy, scary guy who can make you feel queasy just by the sight of him. A ginger.
Now we could argue whether or not gingers should be able to breathe the same air as us or play the game of poker, or at the least, compete in non ginger-only events, but we'll save that for another day.
What we will say though is that PokerStars.com, the online poker site that is sponsoring Becker, is recklessly exploiting his gingervitis with that promo shot to the right. Shit, even if Becker wasn't a ginger, he still looks creepy, scary and soulless in that pic. Combine that with the fact that he is indeed a ginger, and well, let's just say we're glad we're not anywhere near Dortrum, Germany today where Boris Becker, a ginger, is among the field of Day 1b players at the European Poker Tour German Open.
Wait...just checking PokerListings.com right now and it appears Boris Becker was a no show due to an "unexplained illness [that] has kept him from making the trip to Dortmund."
We think we know what that may be. Too bad there isn't a cure.
Anyway, we ironically have a day of Wii Tennis ahead of us so we have to run. Stay tuned to PokerListings.com where you can keep track of today's action, including the play of poker pros Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand Grospellier, Marcel Luske, Ram Vaswani, Noah Boeken and Annette Obrestad, a woman.
