So, you all watching this season of Survivor? If so, what do you think of our friend Marty? I think he's playing an amazingly smart game, though it will be interesting to see how his new tribe mates take to him in the coming weeks. I stand by my prediction that he is going to go far - very far - and I think there is a better than decent chance that he outright wins. He clearly gets strategy and I think he's the smartest player out there - by far. Unless of course there's someone flying under the radar, which could always be the case.

I've always enjoyed Survivor but I have to say that it's definitely that much more enjoyable and interesting when you know oneof the contestants.

Anyway, go Marty, go.

The telling story was a couple of weeks ago when Marty orchestrated the ouster of Jimmy Johnson. Jimmy's game plan was to knock off the weaker players one at a time. Marty, as a stronger player, could have tucked in right behind Jimmy and coasted into the merge. And after a merge Jimmy would have most certainly been loyal to his original teammates. Marty might dodge the chopping block for a few more weeks as the new tribe can't get organized, he will probably get through the merge. But he doesn't know when he has a good thing going and when to keep his mouth shut. He doesn't have the charisma or the edge to "lead from the front" for an entire season.
