Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.

About a week or so ago I decided to email full tilt to see if they're interested in sponsoring me for the Aussie Millions this year (lol selloutaments). This is the email I sent them:

"I'm not sure this is the right email address for this, so if there's a
better person to send this to please forward it to them.

Hi, I'm Jimmy Fricke, and I took 2nd in the Aussie Millions tournament
last year and received a large amount of television coverage. I'm
coming back for all the tournaments this year, and was curious if Full
Tilt would be interested in sponsoring me in some of the events or maybe
the main event in exchange for wearing full tilt gear and maybe some
other things. I'm unaffiliated with all sites right now and I have a
bunch of friends coming to the tournament who are strong online
tournament players who also have no affiliation. Let me know if you're
interested in doing business.

Take care,
Jimmy."

I got a response a little bit later saying that they don't respond to every message about solicitations, blah blah blah, but they'll contact me if they're interested. This message just popped up in my inbox:

"Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of Full Tilt Poker.
Unfortunately FTP does not take open solicitations from players wishing to
join the team. It is an invite only process that does not have set
standards or qualifications. In the future, if we are interested in
adding you as a FTP representative we will contact you directly. We wish
you the best of luck and we hope to see you at a final table soon.

JD"

I'm like okay, whatever, I had to expect it. I peruse the rest of the email and discover that this genius had included an email that Howard Lederer sent to him regarding his final decision. This is that email:

"From: Howard Lederer
Sent: Sat 11/3/2007 7:21 PM
To: Robert H. Wolf; Ray Bitar
Cc: Jason Newitt
Subject: RE: Aussie Millions. (KMM4237266I19928L0KM)

The guy's a freak and a very weird dude. He is also quite young. I think we should stay away.

Howard

My new email address is XXXX@XXXX.com. My "tiltware.com" address will not work soon. Please update my contact info accordingly. Thanks."

It surprises me very little that Full Tilt has incompetent employees who could make this happen. Thanks Full Tilt, I won't be conducting business with you in the future even if you want me to.

My email to Howard (at his new email no less) contained the above email plus:

"You should probably tell your employees not to send out correspondence with you when they're rejecting an offer from someone. Seems like it'd be bad for business. Professionalism first, eh? Look forward to playing in your tournament."

So, to sum up.

Beat: Am a freak and a very weird dude.
Brag: Howard Lederer's email.
Variance: Pls to be signing me stars?

Wow, what could he be basing those comments on? You seem normal enough to me.

If his comments have anything to do with weight... he's really not one to talk considering he's now fat again AFTER his gastric bypass.
