    My Trip Report

    Hey Gang--

    I'm happy to be posting an update from my brand-spankin' new Toshiba laptop from here in the hotel room. Just got back from an EPIC all-nighter that will go down in history as one of the greatest gatherings of buffoons in the history of The Madness.

    Long story short, there were two different old-school Vegas experiences, followed by the crowd gathering at the Plaza, then a mass migration over to Binions, where I walked up to the desk at the poker room and announced--"Find another dealer and open up a new table, I've got 10 degenerates looking to gamble!"

    And with my slick negotiating skillz, we got ourselves a private 3-6 table going and the laughs, drinks, and smack talk flowed nonstop for three hours. I swear I haven't laughed so hard in months. I wish somebody could've videotaped the whole thing and put in on pay-per-view, because it would be a hit!

    Anyhow, just because you want to know, Doc Al was the first one busted out, so yeah those chips in that pic that Ron posted used to be Doc's. And yeah, that was my tobasco bottle chip marker in the pic, too. Seriously, I don't think I've ever had more fun at a poker table than last night. Terry has a pic on his cellphone that tickled us all to no end... I swear I couldn't stop laughing about it all night, but I'll leave it up to him to post and caption. But it was priceless, especially if you know this crowd.

    After the poker game wound down, there was a quick breakfast at the coffee shop and a little pre-party buffooneration in Angy's suite. There are some pictures that will be posted in the next few days that may be a bit shocking, so be warned, do not have any liquids nearby when reading trip reports next week.

    Also, I feel a little bit cheated for passing out in a huge king-sized bed with two chicks and not knowing a thing about it until I woke up a couple hours later and thinking to myself... "Hey...this would be a much better story if I didn't have pants on..." Talk about opportunity missed!

    Damn demon rum...

    Anyhow, it's time for a power nap, then off to the store to get more ice before the party kicks off for real tonight...

    If there are any survivors, they've been instructed to post after-action reports.

    Mikey

    We can't ask for more!

    Thanks for the great update. I am thrilled that y'all are having a blast. Not really but it sounded good! It sounds like we should all be there enjoying the festivities. :drunk: Glad you got the new laptop in time, so keep us posted. Man, I got the Vegas itch bad!

    And don't forget "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!" unless of course you are a member of this board then nothing stays in Vegas! We want pics and the full story.

    Bazootch, please pick up the white courtesy phone.

    For those who crave more details, I'll do what I can.

    My night began in my apartment watching my Buckeyes lay an egg in the first half against the Vols of Tennessee. Illmarty gave me a call a little into the 2nd half, so I left to meet him at the MSS brewpub. From the time it took to get ready and meet up with him, Ohio State somehow made a great comeback and dodged another bullet! Go Bucks!

    After meeting up with Marty, Silversmiff, Shock and JoeVegas, I carried my 22oz Strawberry Cream Ale over to the Plaza with them to watch them win some cash on the craps table. While there, more buffoons magically appeared including Mikey, Sticky, Big Stogie and his wife, Smarra, Beach Crazy, SnertAlert, LVTerry, Doc Al and possibly a couple of others (it's 4pm right now and I just got out of bed, so things are somewhat hazy). From there, I thought the huddled mass was heading to Elco for more craps craziness, but we apparently made a left turn into Binions after a quick stop at the Vegas Club.

    Xizor, I can't really remember who the big winner was. I survived the 3 hours only down 23 bucks (while seated right next to the dynamic duo), but I think I remember Vegas Jer pulling in a couple big ones. Very early on, we saw a classic AA vs. KK vs. QQ match-up, with Doc Al smartly laying down his ladies while Terry's bullets beat Sticky's kings. Sammi and I gave each other two pretty bad beats, with the bad beat I gave her being more brutal (I unknowingly needed a set on the board for a boat to beat the wheel that she flopped!). I also recall sucking out the runner-runner nut flush to beat the pair of tens that Mikey was grossly overplaying. ;-) For those who wonder, the poker line-up for the night included (starting in seat 1) empty seat, Joe Vegas, Marty, Shock, Doc Al, myself, Sticky, Mikey, Big Stogie, Sammi and Terry. Snert eventually claimed the "seat 'o shame" that was vacated by Al, and Jer also snagged the empty seat later on.

    If you notice in Ron's pic, Terry seemed to be the winner in eclectic alcohol consumption. The two empty shot glasses stacked there used to contain patron and a mystery bourbon-looking liquid, but I don't know what it was exactly. What you can't see in the picture is an un-touched Shirley Temple that somehow found its way into Terry's cup holder while he was in the bathroom or something.

    My night ended when Mikey graciously picked up the tab for breakfast at the Binions cafe, using some comp dollars he had accumulated. I also got to see Sticky's mildly disturbing toast infatuation. The stuff that happened afterwards in Mikey's post are events that I am not privy too, sorry!

    The most notable no-show of the night was Bazootch, who not only avoided the downtown fun, but also stood Mikey and others up at the Greek Isle Rat Pack show.

    Unfortunately, I will be at work during the IP party tonight, so Mikey or someone else will have to fill y'all in. With the exception of Mikey and Sticky, I had not met ANY of these characters before tonight. This Board is full of some pretty interesting misfits, and I can't wait to meet more of them tomorrow for the no-limit tourney!

    Is there any better feeling than getting the drunk-dial taunt about your hometown team getting their arse kicked, then for them to ultimately win in the last minute?

    OK, maybe waking up with a pocketful of black chips that you don't remember winning!

    :thumbsup:
