    Every year during the WSOP they always have a celebrity to announce "shuffle up and deal" to begin the main event tournament.

    It was in the 2010 tournament that it was Emmitt. Before the tourny began I was able to talk with him briefly, along with his gargantuan body guard who made the comment that Emmitt told him he was serious about the tourny and thought he would do well, well as it turned out he was eliminated before the first break of the first day, I just thought I would mention this as I found out that first hand that Emmitt is the real deal as far as being a class act and I was very happy to have had the opportunity to meet and chat with him a bit.

    I always wear my Cowboys cap and when the tourny started, I looked over at him which he was several tables away from me and raised my cap to him to wish him good luck and he returned with a thumbs up sign.
