I'm not even exaggerating. I got to the book each day at 8:30am (Vegas time), and I would stay there until 6:00pm (Vegas time). I'm on my phone 50% of the time looking up crap about the upcoming games, checking in here to see who's playing what, and reading messages and what not. You have a $150 tab to kill on each seat that's reserved, so, you eat and drink as much as you can - meaning, there's no point in leaving the book at all - you're basically sitting in a chair all day.

Saturday, every year, I put bets in, and watch the games from the poker room (not enough games to run a tab for each seat), and I leave on Sunday.

Yeah, I didn't get that. I'm positive he's posted while at an MMA event, though I could be wrong. I've definitely posted at a Raptors game and Jays games. There's no difference from checking and replying to my texts/BBM, to posting on here live plays or how shitty the game is.

Congrats, Sharp, even if you lost me RP. Canadians are hitting it big this past week on CM

I was going to say that the 1st day but I went with we don't want to lose either one over nonsense before Hots put up the white trash loser leaves thread.

And we are better with these jokers. I wish he didn't go after Bob and SharpT, but his Devry and Passages humor, and his ability to joke about his losses, wire to wire LOSER, was good, made us relate hey we suck too at times.

But he wanted to leave, Gwen Stefani.
And giving up like Adam LaRoche did not look good.
Fighters fight.

And good picking, wish I could have been there too.

I just read the thread that started this. Wow. On top of this silly accusation that he was clearly wrong on about Sharp not being in Vegas ( who fucking cares?) why would a guy who claims almost everyone is an air bettor not take on a cash bet when offered it one on one. Natty subtly pointed it out then got insulted by NYK as per usual. Why? As Natty said, confusing. But we all know, not really.

Yeah - let me reiterate...I'm a nobody there. I get a poker room rate and that's about it. I've gotten the reserved seats there because I pay people for them...originally the sportsbook manager, but, now a VIP host who runs the area. Without me giving them money, I wouldn't get the seats.

We used to go to the clubs all 4 nights when we were younger, then it went to 3 nights, now it's down to 2 nights, and it's closing in on one 1 night now. The body can't take the crazy hangovers anymore.

We went to Drai's Thursday and Bank Saturday (and, yes, paid our guy to get a $1500 minimum). I'm sure you have one, but, if you need a contact there to help you out, let me know.

Money talks there, from the book to the clubs to the lines at restaurants. Pay people off, nonstop.

If SharpT lost I was going to ask him if he would go click on my thread a few thousand more times before he checked out.

I need the rewards for another Amazon gift card.

I'm not a huge player, I'm a Diamond at Caesars Properties. That is only because they have 2 casinos within 30 minutes of home. I get the room for free totally and that's about it besides Mat Franco tickets and I get to skip a lot of lines. It helps my lady uses my card to play slots, without that I'd have trouble staying Diamond probably.

We get a car from a buddy when we need it too, that helps going golfing and stuff like that.

We are down to 1 night of clubs, and that is just to see a new one. I have a good memory that you went to the Bank before. I was saying did you go to the Double Down Saloon or anything like that. I think I've done just about everything on the Strip.

The moment I land, I spend about $75 at ABC buying Gatorades/Water/Coca Cola/Chips/Jerky/Peanuts. So helps with hangovers, snacking here and there, and having those good fluids to hydrate.


It is total polar opposites when I go here with my lady next month. Out pool clubs, In regular pool. Out steakhouses, In Raising Cane's. Out Golfing, In Frisbee Golfing. Could be out here 2 months "partying" like we are about to do.

Well done Sharp.
3 sides here

one, the viewer or reader, fun for him

two, the receiver. I have been one, more than I prefer. When ones integrity is questioned and false accusations are made, tell me how much fun that is.

and lastly, being a dick and there are a few. If they leave, all the better, IMO. I have heard the BS about it's the internet and anything goes. I have made some derogatory comments towards some, but it's like in the NFL, the last guy get the flag.

I'm an ardent reader of the Gold Sheet, posted free by "The One" each week. It has been around for 50+ years and has the best rankings IMO, to determine correct spreads by any publication. It is known as "The Bible." But many were quick to make a determination that my reference was about religion. Pretty funny to me. I spent hours upon hours reading it to determine how rankings were made and how to tighten up the spreads to show what it would be if one looked only at the last few games. I don't read it to see who they are selecting, only for pertinent info. When I had the energy when I was younger, I could point towards a game weeks in advance that was going to be a laugher, but that energy is now spent on grand kids

When I stated the right team was favored, I wasn't making a selection on that game, just noting the spread posted by the odds makers was correct.

Yeah. All drinks and food (from the little restaurant beside it called Snacks)....the Bloody Mary's were 15 bucks each so we got to $150 per seat quickly.

Last year it was $100...they bumped it up this year to $150.
