I love poker, which is a good thing because poker shows seem to be employing a lot of really hot babes lately. Leeann Tweeden did the Poker Mansion show for a while, and while watching ESPN’s Pro-Am tourney, I caught sight of lovely Aussie Mieke Buchan doing sideline duties. It’s not exactly brain surgery, of course, but I don’t mind one bit.
