#3758737 Vegas Baby Vegas

Posted Dubey on 07 June 2017 - 07:33 AM

2 important announcements, both relevant to the Vegas thread.

1. I've just booked my next Vegas trip. July 13-17th. Taking my brother in Law for his first Vegas trip (He's 23). Any suggestions on what we should do to make his first trip memorable? I've been so many times now I forget what it was like my first time.

Will also be attending the World Series of Darts PDC event final day on July 15th and I'm really pumped about that.

2. Wife and I are expecting our second child (another boy) at the end of September. I think this is the thread where all baby announcements are made if I remember correctly.

It's just that those who talk the most about running government like a business are the ones who seem to have the least sense of overall value of the alternatives they're deciding between.

The issue is short-term versus long term value. ie: a CEO is looking a couple year window... a country should be looking at a 50 year window.

The pros and cons of every decision needs to be evaluated completely differently.

A Day At Port Perry

Never been to Port Perry in the morning. It sure was tough waking up early but I did and got out of the house at 8:40 am. Grab a coffee and bagel at Tims and headed out. Took me longer than I thought it would take me and got to see Biatch by the poker room at 10:10 am. Afterwards JP showed up and we waited for our names. Was told that they would not open a table until 11 am so we headed to the blackjack table. Biatch gets the streak and hits the 4 winner streak for $90. We both were doing pretty good and than hit a cold streak. We left with Biatch up $200 and I was down $10.

Biatch got a seat for poker and my name was still down. So JP and I headed to the restaurant. The buffet did not look very good since their main course was ham. Ham??????? Where is the prime rib!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Biatch got a meal ticket after sitting for what I think was 10 mins. The guy that sat next to Biatch had the worse BO. I could smell him from 5 feet away and Biatch sat right next to him. We sat around and talk trade, gambling and golf. We (JP and I) hear our names called and we actually get a seat at Biatch table. The worst hand of the night was when Biatch got a boat on the river but the other guy got a straight flush. Oh well.

I think I was down $25 after poker. Funny thing was I looked down at my feet and there was $15 on the floor. We hit the roulette table and I lost $300. Biatch overall for the day won I think $50 and JP I am not sure. He played this slot machine and I had no clue what was going on .

We leave the casino and JP takes me to the Indian reserve where they sell cheap gas. They had diesel so I fill up my car at 90 cents a litre. Not bad.

I don't think I have ever been to a casino so early and it definitely had a strange feeling. It was however a fun day spent with 2 AHL owners.

When a coach refers to a player as an "animal" the pigmentation of the player's skin doesn't cross my mind. If you immediately connect "animal" with a person of colour then maybe you're racist.

#3744765 Blue Jays!

Posted Dubey on 03 October 2016 - 09:48 AM

In my mind, the Jays haven't made the playoffs until they win Tuesday. And I agree that the season will be a massive disappointment if they lose Tuesday, because I still honestly believe they are the best or possibly second best team in the AL (Boston is really good)

but, the thing is, it's not like the players went out and bought the champagne and taped up the dressing room. That's all done by the team and it's just something that they do. Are they just supposed to stand around and refuse to drink the free champagne and beer, and refuse to enjoy the moment Just so they can be the "cool and relaxed" team that doesn't celebrate?

It actually still is a big deal to be one of the final 10 teams standing, even if the current playoff structure is gimmicky and stupid. And let's be honest, even though the jays are a better team than the Orioles, they are still going to lose like 40% of the time on Tuesday, and if Joey and Edwin leave, there's a pretty good chance this is the last time they will be sipping champagne in quite awhile, so I say let them have their fun.
