At the same time, poker night is a Thursday night tradition among Pete Hornberger (Scott Adsit), Josh Girard (Lonny Ross), Frank Rossitano (Judah Friedlander), James "Toofer" Spurlock (Keith Powell), and J.

Kenneth agrees, and Jack's pair of twos beats Kenneth's king high.
A guy in rental shoes had more charm with the Boulder ladies than I did. I told any girl I talked to that I would be getting a pet. I wasn’t going to get seven cats because that would make me seem crazy. After building confidence with the line on Tinder, I asked a funny, attractive, climber girl. My roommate Cameron swung his fists from the sky to his knees in a wild mashed potato motion. At a climbing friend’s karaoke birthday party, I ran into the bathroom and furiously studied the lyrics to Michael Jackson’s . I stepped on stage and belted the lyrics, my eyes drifting through the crowd. He and his wife, with the help of a doula, had just had their first baby.
For the past eight weeks, I’ve sat in a cubicle, pounded at a keyboard, and kept a watchful eye over my stapler. The crags certainly offer the chance to connect with others.
At 5 pm, I ride my bicycle a few miles to my second job at Movement Dating & Fitness in Boulder, Colorado: finding a swolemate. I’ve kissed below climbs, danced on El Cap, and developed solid relationships, tying strong knots with my partners.

The episode focuses on Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) setting up Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) on a blind date with a friend of his (March).
Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) is concerned that Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) is stressed and underperforming as the head writer of TGS with Tracy Jordan because of a lack of human contact.
He suggests that she go on a date with his friend "Thomas", which she initially refuses.
Liz asks why Kenneth would bet on a hand like that, and he responds that he enjoys living on the edge and was also confused about the rules.
Jack stops Kenneth from leaving, explains that he only made Kenneth bet his job to prove his power over him, and returns the jacket to Kenneth with the expectation that he come in early on Monday.
This episode originally aired on October 25, 2006 on NBC as the third episode of the show's first season and overall of the series.
