I really don't know if Mr. O'Donnell going to win anything in his poker carrier - besides this tournament - ever again but I just have to say... that is one ugly t-shirt, Matty Boy. Nobody over sixteen or outside of Burning Man Festival thinks that shirt is cool or good-looking or even presentable.
