I need clarification.

did you toss your hat, and get it back, or did you never throw it in the first place?

I've thrown my hat twice. Lost the first one forever. Didn't know I could get it back. Second one was during a Darren McCarty hat trick. I went back the next day to pick it up because I really liked the hat and they went back to get it and they said Darren was bummed I came to pick it up because he liked it and was going to keep it.

If Carrie Underwood was mine and we where in the "doing it" part of the relationship, I think you are all nuts. I will take getting lucky every day of the week and twice on Sunday over watching my team play or hanging out with guys. Here are my exceptions to this rule:

Jets in the Super Bowl
Rangers can clinch the cup
Mets can clinch the World series
US/Canada gold medal game in the Olympics

thanks for the offer. I managed to get some money on Bet 365. Hopefully my ID verification goes through before Saturday so I can place the bet. if not, I'll possibly take you up on your offer.

Wayne used to be my online bookie. I can vouch for him.

Glad you had fund again Wayne. Enjoy your well deserved breakfast!

I would also like to congratulate you on not watching our NFL teams play yesterday in the Fitzpatrick-McCown Return Regurgitate Bowl, as that might have been the worst display by 2 QB's I have ever seen in a football game. Both of them playing against their former teams did nothing for their motivation I guess, since both sucked bad.

We have a pretty cool opportunity if it works out..

The Jr Vegas Golden Knights U14 goalie went down with a serious injury and is out for 3 months..The coach has reached out to us to see if Adrian would like to come for a few games..

Problem is Adrian is U12 Peewee and this is a U14 Bantam level...Not sure if he is ready for it, but they seem to think so..It would be pretty cool experience for him and he gets to put on the Golden Knights Jersey..

The coach is Evan Zucker..Brother of NHLer Jason Zucker of the Wild..

Still some red tape to jump thru with releases and schedules but hopefully it will happen.

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.
