Johnny Chan Versus Phil Hellmuth
Johnny Chan: Phil Hellmuth is a good poker player, but when he loses, he cries like a little baby. He should learn how to take it like a man. He's not a man yet, but hopefully he'll grow up.
Phil Hellmuth: I'm disappointed that Johnny Chan doesn't see that I am a man, and that I have a passion for the game that sometimes makes me look bad...But my plan is to shut up and become the best poker player of all-time.
I had a "friend" once who told me that I didn't have any balls. My wife suggested that I send him a photo of them in the mail, which would have been a funny response, I think. For some reason, Hellmuth's exchange with Chan made me think of that little episode from my own life.
