I play poker and trade options, seeking edges from study, reflection and analytics.

The "Not So and Sos"

The "Not So and Sos"

Occasionally, I bump into actual famous people at casinos. Like the time I literally bumped into (and bounced off of) Yasiel Puig in the pizza line at Horseshoe Cincinnati. Orel Hershiser was throwing heat in the 2/5 NL game that night too.

Usually, it's the Not So and Sos... Because we have to entertain ourselves in the poker room sometimes.

It all started a couple years back when "Not Brad Pitt" graced us with his presence at Horseshoe Cincinnati (now Jack Cincinnati Casino).

The resemblance set off a persistent exchange among friends. The likenesses shared have ranged from the uncanny to the caricature or faux.

I met "Not David Mayfield" at the Daytona Beach Racing and Card Club.

Sitting beside "Not Robert Turner" gave me chills. It was a short session.

not_wayne_rooney

Sports fans will enjoy "Not Wayne Rooney" and "Not Broadway Joe" who was spotted classing up Bally's Las Vegas.

not_keanu_reeves

Yes. "Not Keanu Reeves."

not_sean_penn

Perhaps Madonna was on the mind of "Not Sean Penn."

not_steve_buscemi

One of my favorite actors AND Not So and Sos... "Not Steve Buscemi."


Yes, this pastime borders on creepy - taking pictures of people, without them knowing, to pair them with celebrities and share with friends... If you find yourself on this or a future installment of The Not So and Sos, and would like the image removed, I'll gladly take it down and delete the files. Email your request to jay@xdaystogo.com.

Maybe next time I'll include myself with Barry Gibb, my most popular "you look like so and so" lately, or Richard Chamberlain or 70's Eric Clapton...
