Most of you know that I am a fiscal conservative. If you didn't, you know now. I didn't vote for Trump and Im pretty sure I wouldn't have voted for Bernie Sanders. Would have looked for a 3rd candidate.

What Trump just said about Obama, Bush and all the other former presidents in regards to calling families of the Fallen military is beyond unforgivable. This man truly is an abominable human being.

He lost me when he said McCain wasn't a hero because he likes people who aren't captured

The man makes me sick

As you may or may not know. Otto took over my team because I was sleepy. He did a pretty good job imo.

However he also attended the annual NFL pool I have been involved in the last 10 years+ and drafted my team. I thought he did an extremely good job but Yahoo gave us a draft ranking of D+ (last in our 16 team league).

Well after 4 weeks we are 4-0.

Maybe I should get Otto to start playing more.

Sad day in Broadwayville. We say goodbye to an original member
Mats Zuccarello was there from day one and was an intricate part of all 7 playoff seasons
Its time to move forward but today we say thank you to Mr Broadway Blue "Mats Zuccarello"
The official press release of the trade reads as follows:

To the Delicious: Mats Zuccarello, Joonas Donkey and $.50 in cash
To Broadway: 1st rd 2017 (PK Dealers), 2nd rd 2017 (PuckWarfare), Arten Anisimov, Evgeni Malkin and Steven Stamkos

Broadway's fans where super excited to learn the possibility of Stamkos in a Broadway uniform for 17/18 but there enthusiasm was short lived after they realized they mixed up AHL and FCHL rules and thought Steven was a tier 4. Oh well

My last weekend was spent at the ballparks for my girls. My older daughter played on Saturday and my younger one played on Sunday.

The Saturday started out pretty wild. Our first game was against Windsor. Back and forward game but we were able to tie the game in the bottom of the inning. We had a girl on 3rd and for some reason she ran to try and steal home plate (she is not fast). I was right behind the plate and the ball beat her easy but the tag was close. The ump called her safe and our team freaked. The head coach from Windsor lost it. He screamed at the Ump and belittle him. Also told him he is done umping, etc. He then told his girls not to shake our hands. We than had to leave the diamond for another diamond. I went to the car and the Windsor coach was standing next to his car and yelling at his daughter (she was the pitcher and is very good). The coach yelled at his crying daughter saying she is done. She is not pitching anymore today. She actually did pitch and they came in 3rd place.

Our team however won our next 2 games easy. My daughter is still struggling at the plate and striking out. We head into the semis and it did not start out good. They got 7 runs in the top of the first. Our team was dejected. However we scored 7 runs ourselves with my daughter getting the 7th rbi on a sharp grounder to 2nd. The game was close throughout when my daughter came up. Girls on 2nd and 3rd and 2 out. She hit a hard liner right up the middle and to the fence. She is fast so it was an easy home run. We eventually won easy.

In the finals against Brampton, she came up to bat with girls on 1st and 3rd. She hit one that had the left fielder just turn around and run back as it went over her head. I absolutely freaked. The game however got really close as Brampton was able to tie it with 4 runs in the top of the last inning. We were at the bottom of the battling order and the first 2 girls got out fast. The next one got a double and the next girl hit a single for us to get a walk off win.

The team of 13-14 year old girls were thrilled as were the parents. Best tournament we have ever played. The best part of it was that on Sunday my wife and I hosted a team party. Needless to say the girls were still pumped and we all got to sit back and enjoy the victory. Otto came by to get some extra food. I told him to get going since I don't think it would be appropriate to have a 20 year old guy with 13/14 year old girls in swimming suits.

My younger daughter had her tournament on the Sunday. I felt a complete letdown since we were on such a high the Saturday. I feel the younger daughter can have a good team if the coach played to win instead of using his daughter and another girl as pitchers (they both stink). But hey I am not the coach and never will be so I remain silent. The funny part is I was speaking with one of the moms. I told her that Otto was going to pick up my daughter since I have to prep for the party. She immediately said don't I will drive my daughter home. I than find out that she has 5 kids ranging from 13-3 years old. I told my wife and she said the reason she has 5 kids is because she shows her assets. I think the younger team is getting stronger since we have the addition of 2 stronger girls come back from summer vacation.

The issue now is when the provincials occur in 2 weeks. Both of my girls have it on the same weekend. So either I am heading to either Brampton or Brantford while my wife goes to the other one.

I want the series to end with the 7 kingdom's under the heel of the night king. I want the last shot of the series be the night king, on the back of a Skeleton Dragon (formerly Drogon), is flying, with his Lich Bride Cersei, across the narrow sea ( The White walkers fear water, if you recall, but a zombie dragon could fly them over it)

I played golf at Caledon Golf and Country Club on Sunday. I found the course to be very nice and scenic. Never played there before and shot 43 on the front 9.

Best hole was #5, hit a 9 iron and nearly hole it. A tap in for my only birdie:


Next best hole was #9. Standing in the tee box the single who join with us said are we going to wait and go for the green. I said hell yeah we go for it. Hit my drive to the left side of the green and 3 putted for par:


Was waiting for the next hole that I read about. Hole #14. 592 yard par 5 off the top of the hill. I went first and probably my best drive all day. Hit it over the huge trees and the single said to me "hit another ball, I have never seen anyone hit over the trees and clear it". So I did and blew past 250 yards and lost the ball. We drove down the cart path and saw my ball. It was right down the middle of the fairway. Eventually scored a 6 from a bad chip shot.


However I was wondering more about this:


He had to be joy riding fast down the hill to make the cart flip over.

up at about 9 on Saturday Morning. quick dip in the pool with my morning coffee, facetime with the wife and kid, then back downstairs to the same breakfast spot before Darts. Darts was amazing again. There were 8 players left so they played 7 matches on Saturday (4 QF, 2 SF, 1 final). Some really great matches and another great crowd. The 2 Canadians got dusted pretty bad which was expected. Drank a lot of beers and had a really great time. I definitely want to go back again someday, and I encourage anyone who is even remotely interested in darts to try to make it there some time. Darts wrapped up around 4:30 and we headed back to the Palms to change, Grabbed some food court Pizza and placed a $50 bet on the A's to beat Cleveland (+190). There were only 3 games to choose form at that time. Played a quick session of craps with my brother and won $250. After changing, we headed to Aria where we all hopped into a poker game. My brother and I played 2/5 and I bought in for 500 and doubled up really early with AK vs AQ on an A high board. Table got pretty bad after that though and I ran into some tough spots. Slowly bled money till I left down $80 after about 5 hours. We decided we had to take Matt to a certain famous vegas establishment. I told him that he was probably going to spend whatever was in his wallet and don't go into the back room, He didn't listen to me and spent a lot of money but had an excellent time anyway. We got a table and a couple bottles of Jack and spent about 4 hours there and had a good time, but I swear I'm not going back there. It feels more and more slimy each time I go there (definitely not the first time I've said I'm never going back). needless to say, everyone's pockets were quite a bit lighter after Saturday night.

Sunday morning I miraculously didn't have a hangover and was up around 9 again. Dev and Adam were both flying out Sunday morning, so we saw them off, ordered room service for breakfast, and had a beer to clear the cobwebs, then went downstairs to cash my sports bet from the night before (boom, As won). $50 returned $145, so I pocketed the $100 and put $45 on a 2-game parlay for the angels and red sox (2nd game of double header) to win. Then headed to the Wynn to play some more poker and check another big room off the list. The new Wynn poker room (at Encore) is easily the nicest room in town. Great tables, lots of space, excellent drink service. Unfortunately, the play was kind of grindy, but I guess that's to be expected on SUnday afternoon. played there for a few hours and grinded out a $50 win while watching the Angels win a close 3-2 game. We decided to head to the Rio seafood buffet for dinner, which was pretty good, then walk over to the WSOP to see the set-up for the final few tables. It was pretty cool, though the players were on dinner break. We did watch a few hands of the little one for one drop final table and saw one of DN's VLOG main event seat winners win a big all-in on the river with AA.

After that we decided to head back to the Aria for some more poker. Got into a good 1/3 game that had more action than my 2/5 game from the night before. At one point, I raised $13 UTG with KcQc, got called on the button and the big blind. Flop was TcJsAc. I bet $25 and got one caller on the button. Turn 9c and I bet $60, and the button shoved for $240 with 6c3c. easy game. As I played I watched the red sox beat the Yankees on the screen above our table and my $45 bet returned $176. 2/2 on sports bets. Played till about midnight and won $430. My dad and Matt also had really good sessions, and erased most of their losses from the previous night's excursion. had an 11 AM flight the next day so headed back to the room for one last night sitting in the pool and drinking the rest of our duty free booze.

Woke up the next morning hangover free again (I run good), and packed up and went downstairs to cash my sports bet. Also placed a $100 bet on the Titans to win the super bowl (40/1). had 1 last degen blackjack session where I bought in for all my non-$100 bill cash ($145) and tried to run it up. Ended up getting up to $400 and had a $100 bet on there with a 6,4 against dealer's 6. I doubled and made a 20, but the dealer went T, 5 for 21 and I cashed out $200 (up $55). headed to the airport from there and back to reality.

honestly, one of the most fun Vegas trips I've had in a long time. Lots of poker, but the Darts really broke up the grind, and had a lot to drink and a lot of fun every day, and won money as a bonus.
