It's Official. I'm not lazy.

Although that's debatable, I got off my lazy ass last night and talked to the owner of the bar I play softball for in the summer. I just ordered all the equipment and I will be starting my own business the first week of January. No buy in Texas Hold 'Em tournaments will be coming to a bar local to you. Or at least local to me. Upon speaking to the bar owner as the idea sunk in and the other guys at the bar overheard my pitch a quick buzz grew and the whole place agreed it's a genius idea. So, if anyone wants to start calling me genius, feel free.

My brother and I will be co-owners of the 'bizneetch'. He went to school for graphic design, so hopefully he can come up with a good logo for our yet to be named company. Coming up with a name could prove to be difficult. I'm thinking either Microsoft or General Motors. Either one of those or maybe a more poker related name like Pocket Kings (in which my brother and I will wear burger king hats and sit around playing pocket ball the whole night) , or 2-7 offsuit (with the logo being a number 2 and a number 7 wearing really bad suits), or King Jack Suited (with the King and the Jack wearing pimp suits). Suggestions are welcome.

I'm liking pocket kings but then I'm having rather sexual visions on that one...
Dayum I gotta go I just made myself excited.

Hey Tim, just thought I would drop by and take a look.
I like the 2-7 offsuit idea, the really bad suits is good. Pocket Kings ??!! Funny, do it if you dare.

Why not call it Bizneetch? It would be fun for people to try and figure out what it exactly that you do. Although, I like Pocket Kings a lot! "is that a large roll of poker chips in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"

If anyone cares, we met up tonight, we came up with River Dogs Poker. The River is a poker term and in college we both had nicknames that were Dog (T-Dog (Tim Dog) and D-Dog (Dennis Dog (named after me)), yes, our friends were not very creative (and yes, this many parens makes it too confusing)). The logo will be a wet dog, with the company name circling it. I kinda like it, I think we kinda had to put some personal touch to it rather than just burger kings hats and playing with ourselves.

It's super that you've decided, though I was going to vote for Microsoft. GM really has nothing to do with it...
Best of luck,
