I love that Matt Damon loves his wife Luciana. I’ve seen them together in person. They are adorable, they are real, they are amazing. But take it from someone who was practically born in a casino – the casino is no place for love.

Here’s Matt at the Ante Up for Africa event last night in Vegas, one of the celebrity participants in a charity tournament. Note that “Lucy” was seated behind him while he was playing. Seriously… I can’t think of anything worse than WATCHING someone gamble. And it happens all the time. Husbands and boyfriends parked at the table while their women sit bored sh*tless, picking their nails or worse yet, reading a magazine.

I have cussed out more than a few accessory observers for reading at my game. It’s Chinese voodoo for bringing bad luck. Very offensive. And it makes me feel sorry for them. And I can’t be worrying for someone else when I’m trying to think about whether or not my pocket pairs are going to hold up.

Fortunately Lucy wasn’t reading. But she was just sitting there. Doing nothing but watching him, probably not saying much. And it’s not like it would have been a quality date night, and it’s not like it’s the best place to learn the ins and outs of poker either. So being there just seems kinda embarrassing. And I like them too much to be embarrassed for them. You?
