    Trips to Las Vegas:
    With the regular season winding down and the Superbowl will be here before you know it. I always remember when I was in LV in 2000 to watch the game between the Titans and the Rams.

    One of the biggest news stories that the local TV, radio and newspapers were talking about were the 4 guys from St Louis that were in town to collect on their winnings.

    It seems that these 4 guys/co-workers had come to LV for a business meeting during pre-season, and during their down-time they did a little gambling. One of the guys, during their first day hit for a $100 win; he then cashed it in and immediatley went to the sports book, and put it all on the Rams (the groups favorite team) to win the NFC title. During the rest of the business trip each one of the other co-workers won a jackpot and did the same; at 200-1 odds.

    They only thing that they regretted while receiving their $20,000 pay-out, was not putting that $100 on the Rams to win the Superbowl. They could have gotten 400-1 odds.:cry::cry::cry:
