Vegas 2010 recap

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

Fly into Vegas on Saturday the 13th around 11:30pm, jump in a cab right away with no problems. Get to PH (Planet Hollywood) and check our bags. The hotel/casino was hoppin with beautiful people and I felt sorta out of place wearing jeans and a t-shirt with a zip-up jacket (flying from MN) Most of the people were dressed to impress. A very hip and trendy casino. Now we didn't have a room until the next day...thought it'd be a fun and exciting way to start the trip. We walk the strip and decide to eat at Bills gambling hall (been there before, it's reasonable, and we figured it'd be a good spot to kill some time) Walked some more, saw the dueling pianos play, had plenty to drink but had to be careful since we didn't have a room to pass out in yet. Played a little blackjack as the sun was coming up, but didn’t have much luck.

Finally get our room after being up for 30+ hours around noon (not the best way to start off the trip). Had placed a few sports bets before crashing for a few hours, get up and watch the NBA All-Star game go OVER for a win. Went 3-1 with the help of some college ball too. Got some eats at the Venetian food court late that night after the game and just called it an early night. (again, paying for pulling an all nighter)

Monday we had made plans to be tourists and have a local... [More]

Twins fans

Wow, first off I'd like to give Joe Nathan a big FUCK YOU for blowing that save. Then I'd like to thank the Phil Cuzzi for blowing the call.

I'm a huge Twins fan...AND a Yankee hater, so the events that took place last night really had me upset, and depressed. I'm a season ticket holder for the Twins, and I'm not sure if I want to go to the game tomorrow anymore after seeing what happened last night. I've seen too many Yankee celebrations at the Dome...but since it could be the last game at that stadium, I'll go, cheer loud, and then have closer with that stadium one last time.

Then next year is outdoor baseball!

Calling all baseball fans!

Wow, just got back from game 163, and it was a hell of a game! I'm a die hard Twins fan, right now I'm just trying to wind down and get ready to get to bed. I work early in the morning, but I just wanted to share at how amazing, and crazy that game was.

Seemed like 5 games were jammed into one tonight...so many crucial spots for both teams to take the lead, pitchers stepping up and getting it done, and not to mention the crowd of 54,000 plus! Standing up and cheering on the Twins like that was something I've never been apart of...playoff games in the past haven't even come close.

On the way out, the city was alive and well...Vikes just got done beating the Pack the night before, the Wild had just won in OT, and the Twins are on fire heading into the playoffs...it may be true that they'll be alittle sluggish come tomorrow, but these boys never quit!

It was by far the greatest game I've ever been too...I took a short video of the celebration so I can show it to my friends, family, and childrens children...Just an amazing game to be apart of!

Was anyone else there? Get chills watching the game on tv? I actually took the Tigers tonight for a small wager, just incase the Twins couldn't pull through...let's just say that was the greatest wager lost I've ever had!

Let's keep rollin Twins!

Farve's Vikings heading to Green Bay Nov 1st

Hey guys,

Just wanted to let you all in on a trip I just booked with some of my buddies. Here's what it includes.

-Coach bus ride from Twin Cities to Green Bay
-1 night in a hotel
-Tailgating 3-4 hours before kickoff (noon CT start) all food and beer included.
-Tickets to the game (Vikes vs Packers in Lambeau)
-Bus ride back to Twin Cities Sunday after the game
-$410 for all of the above

Any advice or thoughts?!

I love betting football, and I'm a Vikings fan! I enjoy watching football from the comfort of my couch, with a cold refreshing brew and some wings. While I keep an eye on my fantasy team, and my football bets. There's no way I can pass this trip up...with a chance that Farve is wearing purple going to Lambeau!?!? This could be a story I tell my grandchildren!

5+ weeks of no gambling

My last bet was the NBA finals game...and my last trip to the casino/card club was 5 weeks ago. I'm not saying I'm quitting, but it's sorta nice to have a break from sports betting. Anyone else? I'm already looking forward to the NFL, and my fantasy football leagues starting up in the next month or so. I've been able to save up more , and hope to buy a house in the next 6-12 months. And being only 22, I'm somewhat nervous, yet again looking forward to the challenge of living the "American Dream".

co-worker relationship question

Hey fellas,   Never thought I'd be coming here to ask for this sorta help, so here it goes...   Girl I work with has had a few rough relationships...(dating guys that are jobless, carless, and broke. So pretty much pieces of dirt that don't treat a lady with respect)   We don't work together, but we're in the same building, and we email each other constantly. We've exchanged numbers last year around this time. She's very shy, and doesn't really talk much. We've hung out at the Christmas parties, work gathering, and occasionally we meet up downtown at the bars and drink/dance alittle bit.   I liked her at first, then found out she had a bf that was living with her, AND a kid! She's 25, and I'm 22. The kid thing and a bf that lived with her didn't appeal to me very much, so I just kept my distance. Now she's gone throught another relationship that ended up on some guy leaving her and cheating on her. Just messy, messy, messy. And this whole time she was emailing me and talking to me about it.   Now that she's done with him, out of habit, I've been wanting to at least become better friends. We never hang out besides what I mentioned above...it seems very odd to me that we only communicate via email or text, along with the occasional "hello" when we see each other at work.   So my question...lately she's been asking me LOTS of questions...just stuff you would ask on a first date. "How many states have you been too? Do you like to trav... [More]
