But I also play in a live league where the dealers throw around these terms all the time, I had no clue what he meant by Dolly parton, or snowmen, but for the 7's I thought they said hockey sticks or somekind of sticks, no one says sunset strip but I PLAY LEAGUE TONIGHT IF I GET 77 Im gonna throw out sunset strip and see if it flies. IN fact Im gonna sound like a geek tonight Ill look at my pockets and say HMM IM travelling down SUNSET STRIP wanna throw in some chips for gas money WOOOO!
I have to save this list, so I will know what Im laughin at next time LOL
OK I played in my live league tonight and people thought I was insane with some of the names.
The league consist of all age players all levels so the older people caught some of these but REALLY SOME OF THESE NEED TO BE UPDATED , I barely remember union oil being called 76 and people younger than me had no clue what I was asking. One of the better players turned over a QT and I said ahh playing a QUINT and he had no clue what I was saying. SPeedlimits are closer to 65 but most knew about 55.
NOBODY ever heard 3's being called crabs so the king crab was dismissed
77= Sunset strip sombody said OH yea some tv show from the 70s called sunset strip 77 also same with the 99 name from a tv show.
Basically the older players knew some of these and some were just out there, NOBODY admitted knowing santa barbra was big slick. or the bigger name for AQ
The Q3 joke must be known everybody was asking me about that one and sure enough it was the on the list
The told a few others but I didnt write them down, when I get them Ill throw them up and see
BUt really they need to modernize the names of some of these hands for the 2000's
