daniel negreanuOn November 20, Daniel Negreanu posted on his regular blog on While this usually wouldn’t be newsworthy, his closing statements may leave you scratching your head. Below are excerpts from this blog, which you can read in its entirety by clicking here

In the first questionable part of Daniel’s blog, he posts a transcript of an exchange between himself and a waiter at a steakhouse at the Palms, with Negreanu attempting to order a festive beverage.

“Got Heineken Light?”
“I’ll just take a Heineken then.”
“No Heineken either, but we have a beer that tastes kind of like Heineken?”
“Forget, what else you got, how about a Corona?”
“No we have random beer #1, we have Bass, Amstel Light, etc.”
“So you have no beer I want, how about a glass of wine. You have Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio?”
“No, sorry.”

Where to begin……

Ok, first off, we have Daniel starting off asking for a light beer, which could be forgiven…..had he just left the Betty Ford Center. This is not to mention that his second and third choice of brew are Dutch and Mexican, respectively. The man is Canadian, and Canadian men love their beer. Why is he asking for imported beer?? At least ask for something from Molson or Labatt (No, Canadian beer is NOT deemed imported, regardless of the sign above it at the beer store). THEN…..when he can’t find something suitable for himself on the beer front, he asks about fucking wine! You’re at a steakhouse man. If none of the beers sound appealing, tell the waiter to surprise you with one. A crappy beer is far more manly than even the classiest wine. This is reminiscent of that high maintenance girlfriend who bitches at the waiter because he forgot the pineapple garnish on her strawberry daiquiri. Just drink it, shut up and eat your steak, which better not be fucking well done (I guarantee he isn’t eating a well done steak, more on that later). These are not the first seeds of doubt that Daniel has planted about his manliness, but this might be the first sign of a plant growing from said seeds.

Then, we move on to the later part of his blog, where he really raises eyebrows and promises news in his next blog:

“…the next blog I write is going to be very different than anything I’ve ever written before. I considered writing it now, but I wanted to give it some time so I can really think about what it is I’m saying and what the best way to say it is. It’s kind of a good news/bad news blog in a sense, although I prefer to see it as a very good thing and a positive step in my life. I’d explain further but the only way to do that would be to just write the blog now and I’m not going to do that.”


Does this not sound like a massive weight is going to be lifted off of his shoulders? I can think of an announcement that some dudes make which makes them feel great to finally get off their chest, but it also usually results in their father never speaking to them again. Come to think of it…..Daniel has been known to really praise Patrik Antonius… the point where people present become uncomfortable. There are also numerous sources stating that Negreanu is a vegetarian (one of the more telltale signs). AAAAANNNDDDD……..we have also heard rumblings that he’s married, but we have heard nary a mention of this “wife” of his. Add all this to the fact that he’s been known to listen to “relaxing sounds, like ocean waves” at the poker table, and you end up with absolutely no need to read his next blog, as you already know what the gist of it will be. It’s not that far from Vegas to San Fran, is it?
