    Think this is the 3rd corp comp offer from TI for PBR/NFR with free room stays. Is this what everyone gets or is it they are thinking I am western Canadian and like rodeos? I get other offers, just this seems to come up regularly and seems very odd. Any views?

    We're from Ohio, where cowboys ride Harleys, and we like rodeos and rodeo people. Rodeo time (either NFR or PBR, but especially NFR) is a good time to visit Las Vegas. What I wonder is how TI got into it. Orleans and South Point are the two places we've seen a lot of cowboy types.

    I think TI is a sponsor or host hotel starting this year. They have completely lost their identity if you ask me. They continue to make mistake after mistake at that property

    Paris seems to think I'm of Middle Eastern descent. Every few months I get stuff from their VP of Middle East marketing (or something similar) inviting me to shows featuring Middle Eastern entertainers. The invites are always in what I assume is Arabic in addition to English.

    It's kinda funny because my name is about as Anglo as it gets. And the only ancestors I know about that aren't English or Scottish are German. (I do tan quite well, so I'm guessing there's something else in my genetic soup.)

    This is neither here nor there. Your wondering about why you get rodeo marketing made me think of it, I suppose.

    I keep getting offers to see Chinese or Vietnamese performers. Although I am of Asian descent, I have no idea who any of these performers are, nor do I speak those languages. It's like giving somebody who is of German descent, offers to see Swedish or French performers because their great-grandparents came from Germany; and Sweden and France are also European nations.

    Facial recognition technology is scary, isn't it? But wait a minute. If it's true that they're customizing our invites in that way, why don't I get invited to the polka fests?
