We all like our vices, but of course, we also have limits. Now, more and more often, we can enjoy watching other people participate for us. How else do we explain the meteoric rise of televised poker? I watch the food network when I feel like overeating. I watch beer commercials when I feel like setting back a few. I can flip to Cinemax late nights for that lovin’ feeling. I’ve got the world poker championships to get my gambling fix. All I really need is to rent the occasional Cheech and Chong DVD and I’m set.
