That has to be the reason why Joey Porter stalked and punched Levi Jones after playing blackjack at the Palms in Las Vegas. Because it really takes something serious for Porter to actually hit somebody. (His dogs, not so much.) Porter is kind of like the Fonzie of the NFL. Sure he has a tough guy image, but have you ever seen him actually hit somebody? Hell, he's kissed more dudes during an NFL game than he has actually punched somebody. Jones’ transgressions had to be egregious enough to draw that kind of response from Porter. And the only thing harsh enough to elicit that kind of response would be some dude splitting 10s or other jerk moves at a blackjack table.
Most of those times, beer-impaired Fraternity brothers (which is why you need to be cautious about gambling at O’Shea’s or Hooters) or Boston guys who write for ESPN’s Page 2 perform those kind of moves, but NFL players can be dopes. Hopefully Porter gets cleared for this to send a message to people to start playing better blackjack.
(And for the record, Canseco plays pretty good text-book blackjack, but his betting progressions kind of suck.)
