Holy ****, the Justice Department said the Wire Act doesn't apply to poker?

I don't have time to read the megathreads in the actual poker forums, does this mean we're gonna be allowed to play again?

Needle's Top 10(11?) Christmas Song list:

I ended up going out last night and enjoying Wilmington, NC. Hell of a bar scene down here. So I'm gonna throw down my last remaining songs today(hopefully).

We'll start with #3. Some consider this the GOAT Christmas song. Its no doubt that its up there and its definitely from one of the guys that really makes Christmas Songs great.



Music Only Youtube Link

Bing does it better than most. I could listen to Mr. Crosby do work all day.

We will be having #2 come up in a little bit. I need to shower and get ready for what will likely be an epic NFL Saturday. Its going to be in the 60's today here. I can't imagine a better way to be spending the day before Christmas, football and warm weather.

And to those that have to go shopping today.

Good luck.


Needle's Top 10(11?) so far:

Number 10: Whitney Houston's Do You Hear What I Hear?
Number 9: Ella Fitzgerald+Louis Jordan's Baby It's Cold Outside
Number 8: Jose Feliciano's Feliz Navidad
Number 7: Frank Sinatra's Christmas Waltz
Number 6: Brenda Lee's Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree
Number 5: Dean Martin's Let It Snow
Number 4: Jackson 5's I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause
Number 3.5: Eartha Kitt's Santa Baby
Number 3: Bing Crosby's White Christmas

Needle,

I was about to write you off. Too many Jags tirades, too many football posts about offensive lineman, too many Coastal Carolina rants, too much Rangz. But I gotta say, I'm loving the Christmas Song countdown. Great stuff, and solid choices.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Christmas and Forum Discussion

You weren't the only one fwiw. I'm making one of my resolutions for 2012 to try to go back to my old style of posting. I enjoyed 2p2 more then anyways instead of using it as an outlet for venting.

Edit: Also thanks on appreciating the Christmas Song list.

It means that any state is allowed to start it's own legalized operation. Online Poker is legal in any state where it's legal, but that is a gray area in many places. A ton of states have no law against internet gambling but do have laws like the wire act that could be completely misconstrued to try to apply to online poker.

As loretta said, Todd Terry says no and I'm inclined to agree with him. The PPA thinks yes, and has been taking credit for this happening which has me making giant wanking motions in their direction.

It's really too early to tell, but honestly this opinion could be used just as easily to lead state legislatures to make new statutes specifically forbidding ipoker as it could lead to regulation and legal internet poker in the US.

Terry's assertion that the phrase 'sporting event or contest' covered poker is just wrong.

i thought the wire act never included internet poker. or at least that was the assumption and this the first specific address? i guess i dont see how this changes anything if the poker world was already operating as if this was the case.

The DoJ used to work under the assumption the wire act included poker, and the question kept multiple online betting schemes (lotteries, nj iPoker) on hold for a long time.

Needle's Top 10(11?) Christmas songs:

We are down to the #2 song. This one is the one that really puts a smile on my face. The song reminds me of my youth and the excitement of Christmas Eve's. It's upbeat, catchy, and done in many different ways by many different kinds of artists. My personal fave is with the King of Pop:



Youtube Link

Santa Clause is Coming to Town has many different versions, and all of them great. The Jackson 5, imo, crushes the song better than the rest. But the Boss does a hell of a job as well.

Bruce Springsteen's Santa Clause is Coming to Town

Not to be outdone by their Jersey brethren, the Four Seasons put out a version as well that is...well...interesting:

Four Season's Version

And well...obviously...the GOAT of all GOAT's did his own version. This one may > Jackson 5 in terms that...well..Old Blue Eyes > all.

Sinatra's Version

Welp. Tonight I'll be throwing down my #1 Christmas song. Until then, enjoy the NFL games and the smell of Christmas Trees. Good luck with the wrapping gentlemen.

Needle's Top 10(11?) so far:

Number 10: Whitney Houston's Do You Hear What I Hear?
Number 9: Ella Fitzgerald+Louis Jordan's Baby It's Cold Outside
Number 8: Jose Feliciano's Feliz Navidad
Number 7: Frank Sinatra's Christmas Waltz
Number 6: Brenda Lee's Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree
Number 5: Dean Martin's Let It Snow
Number 4: Jackson 5's I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause
Number 3.5: Eartha Kitt's Santa Baby
Number 3: Bing Crosby's White Christmas
Number 2: The Jackson 5's Santa Clause is Coming to Town
