Class Is In

All 12 of the Premier League were at the PlayGround Poker Club today, which in all honesty is quite the feat within itself much akin to those stories you hear of various soft drinks makers never being in the same room as each other. Still the production crew pulled off this minor miracle and it has to be said all 12 were really enjoying each others company as we head to the end of the Premier League 7 here in Montreal.
