The cavemen probably had more free time than most of us do. You know that when one of them speared a 600 pound antelope they feasted and relaxed for days. And then, there were those long nights sitting around by the campfire. When they worked, they worked hard. But, what did they do in their off time?
We know that some of them drew pictures on the cave walls. Others made drums and started rock and roll bands. I believe that a lot of them played poker. Well, maybe not poker, but I bet they played games.
People have liked to play games for as far back in history as we can tell. Even animals like to play games. (I’m sure you’ve seen a dog fetch a ball.) I’ve done a lot of research on game playing and now I think I know what the big attraction is. Games are fun.
One of my favorite games is poker. I just love the bluffing part. The biggest problem I had though, is that when I bluffed my left eyebrow would shoot to the top of my forehead. For a while there, I would just put my hand over my eyebrow when I was bluffing. That really didn’t work for very long either though. Then I discovered Internet poker.
Now I can bluff, my eyebrows can shoot all over the place, and I can still have the perfect poker face. I still can’t win, but at least I have my eyebrows under control.
The other nice thing about Internet poker is that I can play with my friends from all over the country, all over the world even. We just pick a day and time, get our snacks organized, and play poker. If I decide to have an extra adult beverage I don’t even have to worry about driving home.
Sometimes we just chat online with each other during the game and sometimes we use Skype. (When we are Skyping though, I always turn it off for a minute when I’m bluffing.) It’s pretty much just like being there with the guys, except for I don’t have to share my beer.
Do you have some friends that you would like to get together with for a friendly game of poker? It’s a lot of fun and now the Caveman is in a position to lend you a hand. I can set you and your friends up with a private online game any time you want. I’ll do it for my Caveman Home Companion’s for free. I’ll provide the private “Caveman” poker room, dealer and play money, but you guys are going to have to buy your own snacks.
Here’s all you have to do. Just click on the “Caveman Poker” tab on the top of my home page. If you have any questions just leave me comment.
By the way, you guys can always invite me to play in one of your games. Now that I have my eyebrows under control, I’m a lot more confident.
