Creepy Eye Patch Dude Says Kim Swears

And yes... I just came up with the best and worst title in oobgolf history.
I guess he's somewhat famous- because I've seen him before (and he has a Wikipedia page)- but "Norm" sure is creepy. Norm Clarke (the dude on the right), writes a column about Vegas happenings and has this to report about Anthony Kim and his table manners.
"He is one loose cannon," said a dealer, who said Kim may have set a personal record for F-bombs while playing high-stakes craps over the weekend.You'd be salty too if Norm Clarke was secretly spying on you from across the casino. Plus- sitting next to Phil Ivey (the Tiger Woods of poker) has to be annoying. You're sitting there taking a beating, while he's raking in the money... though I'm not sure that holds true in craps. Ivey must've just been blowing off some steam with his buddy Kim, because I don't know why he'd waste his time on craps when he could saddle up beside a couple whales in a big cash game and rake in the dough.

Phil Ivey is known for playing a lot of craps when he is not at a poker table, along with being a degenerate gambler on the golf course. They had a feature on ESPN last year where on one of his trips, he stopped at a casino, and they set up a craps table in a room just for him to play.
Seriously...does anyone care?
You can tell the season is soooo over.
Bryan K says:
Stuey Ungar was, I think, the Tiger Woods of golf. He was two decades before his time, and to think...poker wasn't even his game of choice.
He was also a terrible golfer, but he insisted on wagering on pretty much every stroke. Doyle Brunson, who was a very solid golfer in his day, once recounted a round with Stuey where Stuey was trying to hit a ball waste deep in a water hazard because he refused to take a penalty stroke. Needless to say, Brunson won most of the money he lost to Ungar at the poker tables back on the golf course.
So they're speculating on Golf Central, that this is the reason AK pulled out of the JT open, not fully because of his thumb. I second Pappybro -- the season is soooooooo over.
