|Spades History - The Return to Spades|
|My return to spades was long overdue. Catladydiva, a good friend of mine, wanted me to join her in a private league. I wanted to play but I waited until I fully regained my desire to play.
On December 28, 2003, the time felt right to make my return. I won my return match in a very close game. Of course, Yahoo had to remind me one of the reasons why I left in the first place. Which was back to back games of bad hands and no way to win.
On December 31, 2003, I made my return to Cases Ladder when I joined Spadeslite League. I didn't play right away like a couple of league members had expected. My return tournament was on January 09, 2004 and I won 2 out of 3 matches. I started the league as rung 130 and ended on rung 5. It just shows that I still have what it takes to win and I don't have any spec of spades rust.
However, being in a friendly, family style league, the pet names returned as well. I went along with it at first. At the time, I didn't mind it. Once I noticed that I could be heading for distaster, I had to put a stop to it. The persona of the Rattlesnake of Spades was designed for me to remain focus on spades. I lost it once and I'm not going to lose it again... It's the law!
My motto: Play hard, play to win, but most of all, play for the love of the game of spades, Tigers Style!
