    RR referred to him in his review of Cleveland (above)..........as "...the kid mayor (Dennis Kucinich) in the late 70s..." He is running for governor of Ohio. Would not get my vote.

    Gambling by Millennials is down from the reports I have read. Their spending habits overall are quite different from previous generations. Those Millennials who do gamble are not as likely to play traditional craps as previous generations. For some, it could certainly be the relatively higher learning curve. It might also be they want no part of what their parents enjoyed -- kind of like listening to music (where you often mocked what your parents listened to while you were growing up). But this group is far more tech (gadget) savvy than previous generations; hence, the introduction of electronic versions of games with the visual eye candy and interactions.

    All I will say is if Kucinich is the answer, it must have been an incredibly stupid question. :D

    Many yrs ago I was a Cleveland Indians fan. Don't ask me how or why I just was. Hated the Yankees, and like the Brooklyn Dodgers. But for quite sometime I am now a devoted Dodgers fan since I now live in So. Calif. Had the opportunity to actually pitch some early batting practice at the LA Coliseum against the Dodgers. Oh, how fun it is to remember the good times when one was a youngster. Just sayin.

    When you pitched batting practice, did it resemble something out of a Peanuts, comic strip, when Charlie Brown is on the mound? :D

    All the central AZ casinos have bubble craps. The reason i said months ago thst live craps was coming was a senior cage employee told me that is was being installed now and would be finished by the new year. Wont believe them again

    Hating the Yankees is always a good reason to love the Cleveland Indians!

    The reason this Interstate has not been built, is because it benefits so few people, and in fact, is detrimental to many. Why would the state of AZ push for it? The AZ legislature, probably works against it, and for a very good reason. A rail will not be built for the same reason, it doesn't benefit AZ. I don't think there is a very large Asian population in AZ anyway, and we all know, that casinos LOVE Asians. Maybe they'll build a rail across the Sierra's to Frisco. Now that, would make sense. :)

    Nah. I had on some baseball pants and a sweatshirt type of shirt. I looked just a tad better than Charlie Brown, not much but better. And of course me hat and me glove. It was only for about 20 min. But lots of fun. Just sayin.

    I mean, the times when Charlie throws a pitch, and the unseen batter, zings it back at him, sending him twirling in the air.and landing on his ass. :D

    That's it, thank you.
    Rongarm, throwing batting practice. This is the way I pictured it.

    I also heard this from a floor person (WHP employee) at Wild Horse Casino last December. This rumor might have started based on an article published last August in the Arizona_Gaming_Guide_Magazine, which is an ePub magazine and can be accessed via a link on the AZ Department of Gaming Website. Below is the title of the article and some snippets:

    PLAYING LIVE CRAPS IN ARIZONA

    "If you love playing craps in Nevada, the good news is that although it won’t happen overnight, live craps is now legal in Arizona and will be coming to at least a few casinos in the Phoenix Valley in the future.
    You will have to be patient though. Training new dealers and implementing management systems will take time.
    Stay tuned! We’ll let you know as soon as the first craps table goes live in Arizona."

    I have followed up with an email to the editor. I will post any response if and when I get one.

    Currently AZ has 27 NA casinos. I have been to 24 and so far have found only 7 casinos with eCraps machines. All but one were INTERBLOCK, the exception being Harrahs Ak-Chin in Maricopa. The Gila River Casinos, have replaced all Aruze machines with INTERBLOCK multi-game stadiums, the largest offering Craps, Roulette, Baccarat and Blackjack.

    AZ is always been quite the tourist destination and according to the AZ Department of Gaming, casino revenues are rising. Not surprising as AZ hosts several major events; Pro Golf, NASCAR, spring baseball, etc.

    Open Sunday. Monday and Tuesday this week in Phoenix. The wife was comped rooms at Vee Quiva (Gila River) and Harrahs Maricopa (AK-Chin). The Gila River tribe has 3 casinos (Vee Quiva, Wild Horse and Lone Butte). Maricopa is about a half hour south of the Wild Horse casino. Vee Quiva is more southeast of Phoenix and about 45 minutes to an hour from Wild Horse. Phoenix is currently extending the 202 west which should provide non-stop, almost door-to-door access between Vee Quiva and Lone Butte. The Gila River casinos all have the Interblock stadium setup supporting at least 3 games each (Blackjack, Craps and Roulette. Wild Horse also supports Baccarat. Harrahs has an Aruze push button shooter machine.

    Didn't have any major wins or losses at any casino; however I did need to revert to the dark side several times at all casinos to maintain my bankroll. This activity reminded me of one other difference between the two brands: the Aruze machine announces the winners by blinking the light of your workstation. Many times I felt the eyes of the other players on me when I was the only one winning on my DP and Come bets.

    I normally do not like to be the center of attention, it seemed people were staring at me like I was the most interesting man in the world, to the point that I felt I needed to say something. "Normally", I said, " I do not play the dark side, but when I do I will usually bet dos Pesos. Play thrifty my friends."

    It was then that I heard someone behind me say "Hey you, why don't you sit on my lap and take a spin.". I turned around and it was then I realized that I was sitting across from the Elvira-Queen of the Dark slot machine. I came to the conclusion that the other players were not staring at me. In fact, I now believe that the chants "Twins, twins twins!" were not because the other players were making Hardway bets.

    Hopefully you guys saw the follow up to this. I was bullshitted by the chiefs at the main cage. Guess they thought that was funny. No live craps on the horizon. Cowards!
