    I know I'm an old fart now, and maybe this is just "old fart" crabbiness, but I HATE when I read, "I'm heading to Mecca!" Well, good. Grab your Koran, and go. I'm heading to Las Vegas!

    Guess what else? I'm not taking a vacay, or having brekkie.

    Since we're advertising our "old fart" status, may I please add that I absolutely hate when people say "ressie" (that's not a word already) instead of reservation.

    I agree. It's a first degree offense to use a religious term (or something closely associated with a religion) to describe Las Vegas.

    "Natty" is a word to describe how someone dresses, not a college football game.

    Learn something every day :)

    I've always known 'natty' to be used, when referring to someone in the gym that doesn't use PEDs.

    I am going to abide with Rush's request. Anyone who looks that much like Clint should not be trifled with.

    No matter to me, call it whatever you want. I'm more pissed that I can't be there as much as I'd like.

    Lucky I'm going to be there in 2 weeks so I don't feel that bad about not being in vegas yet.
