Mike’s Court Case Is National News Again, This Time CBS News Today

For those of you who may have not been following along to our show recently, last month I had my day in court to fight a ticket I received for gambling.  I understand, gambling in Idaho is illegal, but Poker is not gambling, it is a game of skill and games of skill according to the law are excluded.  I have played poker in the past with police officers and judges, so you can see my confusion. I finally had my day in court last month and the judge in the case, the honorable Judge James Cawthon, agreed and dismissed the case saying the charges against me were unconstitutional

Mike Kasper is NOT Going to Jail!

I have been playing poker since I was a teenager.  I used to get together with friends at their parents house about once a month while in high school.  Never did I ever imagine that what I was doing was illegal in Idaho, but last year I was playing Texas Hold‘em at a buddy's. While watching the MLB all-star game, a Boise Police task force busted in, guns drawn to give us all gambling tickets.

I’m not making this up. I understand, gambling in Idaho is illegal, but Poker is not gambling, it is a game of skill and games of skill according to the law are excluded.  I have played poker in the past with police officers and judges, so you can see my confusion. I finally had my day in court last month and the judge in the case, the honorable Judge James Cawthon, just released his decision.

Suffice it to say, I am a free man after the case was dismissed because the gambling statute as it applies to poker was ruled “unconstitutional”.

You can read below an article about the recent decision that appeared this week in Bloomberg, plus all the particulars about the case and the people involved.  You can also read the entire official decision from the judge.

I am just happy to know that  I can say: “Free at Last, free at last, thank gawd almighty, free at last!”

OMG! Blind Kid Gets D-1 College Scholarship To Play Football

It’s very difficult to earn a scholarship to play football in college.  My son Jordan received a scholarship to play at Eastern Oregon University.  He is one of just 1 percent of all high school football players to earn a scholarship each year.  It is even harder to get a scholarship at a Division 1 school like BSU, USC or Alabama.  So you would think it would be impossible to get one of these coveted scholarships if you were blind.  That is until now.

Sandra Bullock recently made a graduation speech at a Charter high school in New Orleans, that was quite memorable....check it out below.

Michael Jackson’s Live Performance At The Billboard Music Awards

Technology is a wonderful thing, and if you judge by the Michael Jackson hologram performance at the Billboard Music Awards, it's hard to tell how far this technology can go.  Holograms of deceased performers, Elvis and 2-Pac have already happened, but I was completely underwhelmed by them.  The Michael Jackson Hologram performance was incredible.

If you missed it check out the video, "Slave To The Rhythm" and then tell us what you thought about the performance below.
