I think that this pretty much describes my opinion of Joe as well, the jokes seem poorly timed and forced. Some are ok, but there are just too many of them
In fairness, I think that my opinion of the "Tight Laydown" segment he did on the Poker Beat and the writing he did on the Poker2Nite show ( especially the Weekly Mis-Deal ) may have unfairly influenced my opinion of his work on the Big Game somewhat, but I still don't think he is as good as he's is getting credit for.
But since everybody thinks he is the nuts, I decided to give Two Jacks a listen. I thought that it was kind of good. Not shoot milk through your nose funny, but not bad either
I do consider myself to have a good sense of humor and enjoy comedy clubs and Monty Python as much as the next guy. I am not a hater. I don't try to be hurtful and do try to be respectful of people's feelings. I just had an opinion on a topic and wanted to find out how others felt about the subject as well.
And while I will still occasionally get annoyed by the barrage of poorly timed zingers on the Big Game, I am no longer convinced tha Joe stapleton keeps getting hired because of his stash of compromising videos of people in a position to hire him
