I was in Las Vegas for the last few days and I have a couple of pertinent things to report.
1. The McRib is there.
2. I was sitting in the sports book at the Monte Carlo overhearing the conversation behind me between a WSU grad from Seattle and some idiot from LA. The guy from Seattle was pretty knowledgeable and seemed to be a solid fan (Of course). I can't say the same for that fat Angelino he was talking to however. When they began discussing the Seahawks, the guy said: "Who do you guys have at running back? Bam Morris?" Yep, this soon to be 37 year-old ex-con is toting the ball for us every Sunday.
3. They let you drink and gamble anywhere you want!
4. I ended up in a limo with a group of seven Australians. (Why I was in the limo or where it was going is not important) I told them where I was from and one of the guys, or mates as they are called in their native tongue, said:
-"Oh, you lost your basketball team huh?"
Me- "Yeah, that's a touchy subject actually, let's just move on from that one."
3rd Guy- "Should we talk about the Seahawks then?"
Me- (Trying to come up with an Australian Rules Football-related comeback)
I was pretty floored that even guys who live in Australia are giving me shit about Seattle sports. I guess it just proves that it is known the world over that we are unlucky bastards.
5. I won $140 playing blackjack. I spent $10 on a baseball bat, $10 on a shovel, and $100 on a cab ride into the desert. Then I did this to the Australians. I used the remaining $20 to buy 5 McRibs, that I easily devoured. Suck it Fortune!
