For no reason whatsoever, the spousal unit and I were crazy-glued to last night's re-run of the 2004 World Series of Poker. The only female at the championship table was one Patty Gallagher, a founding member (I'm making this up) of PWA: Pinays With Attitude.
Oh, how I adore this woman.
At various intervals during the broadcast, the producers inserted profiles of each of the players. Patty's began something like this: "They call her Patty 'Machine Gun' Gallagher, but she prefers a different name... [cut to a close-up of Patty staring at the camera and deadpanning]: 'The Bitch.'" Next came various shots of her at tournaments banging the table, yelling, glaring, and whatnot. "You want to see a lady?" said Patty. "Go to church."
My girl ended up taking third place and pocketing a cool $91,000. Then she stood up and flipped the two remaining players the bird. God, it was precious.
