Anna Benson Cashes in Her Chips
Benson could find herself getting plenty of face time on ESPN in the coming year. Not during baseball games, but more likely during one of the network's ubiquitous poker broadcasts. The wife of Orioles pitcher Kris Benson has been polishing her game by playing nearly every day, whether online, on her cell phone or even live and in person. She also recently signed a deal to endorse and promote a fledgling poker Web site. "I'm still a young little poker player. I've got a long ways to go," Benson said. "It is a thrill to me. They call it a sport now, so it's kind of cool for me to come in and be my own type of an athlete.”
She learned how to play from Rickey Henderson and Bobby Bonilla.

Oh Anna, just SHUT UP already!!! Playing poker does not make you an athlete. Good luck, Oriole fans - she's all yours now. Hopefully the Orioles owners will shut her up better than the Mets owners did ...

This broad needs to shut the hell up. She claims intelligence but i have yet to see her demonstrate any. She is partly to blame for her husband being traded along with his lack luster performance last season. Dumb BITCH!
