    Unless you are an airline / fighter jet pilot -

    OR - a member of the Air Borne Division in the military -

    WHO - in their right mind -

    Would - ELECT - to jump out of a perfectly functioning aircraft !

    REGARDLESS of WHO - packed your chute !

    NOT ME -

    I was a Police Officer for the majority of my adult life prior to starting my own business -

    I was content to direct / divert traffic for the Fire Department at working fire scenes -

    There was NO way that I was going to rush into that burning building -

    You can get HURT doing sh*t like THAT !


    I would rather take my chances with an armed suspect who more than likely had NO practice / expertise with the firearm he / she was holding / brandishing !

    Not good at the tables. Starting 18 in the red.
    I did make some money on Pro football
    parlays. Also made some money for my son in law who didn't go but sent some money for me to make some bets. So it wasn't a total loss.

    YaCraps, do you live in the L.A. area. We' want to go to the Cardinals vs Rams game this year. I looked up casinos near the stadium. Not sure I want to pay casino room rates.
    Can you recommend any hotels near the casinos that are in some good neighborhoods.

    If anyone else can recommend a hotel/motel near the stadium. I would appreciate the info.

    Thanks

    Was nice to meet you in Laughlin and I see you made home
    safe and sound.

    Our flight was delayed and delayed and we finally got back
    to Green Bay about 3 am and all I had on was shorts yet and it
    was well below zero as I was looking for my car...

    Needless to say I had no trouble staying awake until
    I got home, took me that long to warm up.

    Next time maybe we can hit the table for a few hands

    Good to hear you made it home safe also.

    Yea, it was hard for me to schedule any specific time at the tables. I'm the chauffeur for my in-laws. My brother inlaw was there also and didn't want to get his vehicle out of valet. It's hard to get that many people on the same schedule.

    Let me know if you get a chance to get to laughlin again. I'll definitely set time aside. We'll meet at the Aquarius in the morning.
    We'll try and get rongarm to go that weekend.

    OK. Now I remember. You're a Padre and SDSU fan.
    I'm looking forward to trying card craps. I'm not gonna like it. But I'll try it.

    Big win: I wasn't there to see it but every dealer on the tables in the morning were talking about it. At Turning Stone last year, a guy who I had seen many times, is a confirmed Don't player. The prior evening he got the table to increase the max bets so he was betting $1k with full odds on the Don't pas and the Don't come lines. He won just over $250k. When I first heard this from another player I thought it was BS but every dealer, the pit boss, etc.------ that was all they talked about all morning so I am reasonably certain it was true. Takes guts and a big bankroll to do that.

    One night when I was using a casino as a practice table a don't player came to the table and as I watched him play I knew he was going to walk away a winner. Somehow I got into a conversation with the pit boss that the don't player was going to beat them that night because of his bankroll. At the time he was losing because of who he was betting against but soon figured out not to bet on that one shooter.

    The pit suit and I continued our conversation until the don't player walked out of the casino a big winner for the night. The suit was laughing when the don't player was losing but it ended up that he had nothing to laugh about when the guy and his girlfriend walked from the casino!

    If you have a big bankroll and knew how to play the game it's hard for the casinos to beat you. For you the player the problems that most will never have the bankroll and even if they do they will never learn to play to game to win!

    By the way, you guys have me for the day because of the rain and all of the flu that is going around. I had two dealers at different casinos coughing and sneezing at the tables I was playing on yesterday!

    Maybe it was psychosomatic that I started feeling bad after those dealers were coughing and sneezing at the tables.

    I don't want to come down with the flu this year!

    Well at least u got home without losing ur car. I remember many yrs ago, when blackjack was only 25 cents to play. I was sitting next to this Oriental fellow and he was betting $25 per hand. After losing about 30 or 40 hands within an hr or so out of lots hands he left but came back with the pink slip to his car. Casino perps checked out his car and gave him like about $1500 for his car. Now mind you I was playing some roulette just a little ways from the table that I had been playing on so I heard the conversation. He proceeded to lose all that money very quickly because he started playing with $100 hands. I felt kind of sick to see that happen to this poor guy. But that happens many times in Vegas I suspect.

    At least u won a few bucks parlaying some bets on Football. Did u play at the Nuggets on their craps table? How the Tropi? Just sayin.

    I caught it but it was obviously a typo, the L and K keys are next to each other. A typo doesn't count as an incorrect word.
