    “How the hell did everybody get on different sides of the room?”

    As the video ends, you hear the song cut off and Wendal screaming “Charlie Brown is a dumbass dance move!”

    One more picture from inside their suite. Time stamps for all of this is 2:00am mind you. So they are all definitely trashed.

    [​IMG]

    Wendal copping a feel on poor Maureen. Sarah in Center, Jamiee on the right. At this point these four plus Tori decide they want to go hang out somewhere. Wendal suggests going to.....where the hell else....Bill’s!

    This is when Wendal calls and texts me that Sarah wants to hang out. They go on without me. Dammit. Wendal decides to buy all of the girls a round of drinks. Maureen insists the he doesn’t need to do that. He does anyway.

    “Earl I remember them thinking that was such a nice thing to do. Shit, it cost me $11.”

    Damn I miss Bill’s.

    [​IMG]

    Jaimee, Maureen, Wendal, Tori

    Around 4:00am they head back to the suite in Flamingo.

    Shameless shot of Sarah. Bad Wendal.

    The last photo on Wendal’s camera for the night is this one.

    [​IMG]

    “Wendal, who the hell are these guys?”

    “Good lord I have no idea.”

    Blackout time.

    Wendal wakes up and opens his eyes a couple hours later, he immediately one he was still drunk, as he had no idea where he was. He turned over and saw the back of my head.....and began wondering why I’m in his bed. Then realized the hair was too long and figured out it’s a girl. (Unfortunately the exact opposite scenario happened to me on St. Patrick’s Day in Charleston) It was at this moment that Wendal began remembering what happened.

    Wendal and Maureen were fooling around. Atta boy. He then finds out that she has never had anybody hit a dinger in her ballpark if you catch my drift. That’s when he pumped the breaks. They just talk for a few minutes before going to sleep.

    “I don’t know why you don’t go knock on Tori’s door. She is so jealous because usually she gets all the attention. She would probably let you in and...you know....” Maureen explained to our hero.

    “Earl, I almost had both feet on the floor to go do it.”

    As he is laying in bed remembering all of this....he hears the bedroom door creak Open. He cracks an eye open.....and almost immediately the second eye pops wide open. Tori walks through butt ass naked to the bathroom. Son of a bitch saw her naked.

    Anyway, I enjoyed hearing him recap the night. Guess it was time to start it up for the day. Saturday at Flamingo pool! Day 4 was going to kick ass!

    Once Wendal finally appeared we decided to go eat the Flamingo buffet yet again. By about 1:00 we were back in the room. We took a few to the face with the bottle of Early Times. I think this finally ended the bottle. So with a slight buzz getting started we were back at the pool around 2:00.

    We made our rounds and started talking to some more groups of people. Wendal made friends with this guy, Alex, pretty quickly.

    [​IMG]

    Alex made sure Wendal always had a beer in hand. Nice phone there Wendal.

    Few of the Pittsburgh girls eventually showed up. Wendal bought Maureen a drink, but apparently she was too hungover. Hell, woman....this is Vegas. The girls were actually going home that afternoon anyway. That meant new targets needed to be acquired.

    Before we could even try, Alex pulled Wendal away from the Pitt crew.

    “Wendal, you need to come meet my niece, Milan. I want you to marry her.”

    Wendal didn’t seem to think it was such a bad idea. He hung out with her for a bit while I made some new friends myself.

    [​IMG]

    Somehow there was a 13 year old hanging out in the middle of the adult section of the pool. He found himself a passed out girl to take advantage of....kidding of course, but makes the picture funny.

    [​IMG]

    Wendal and Milan on the right, 13 year old and his girl on the left, Anna holding her friend up in the water, Earl and Carolyn in the center. I ended up getting Anna and Carolyn’s numbers for later that day to possibly hang out. Wendal has already gotten some foolin around time, but Earl was still on the prowl.

    Milan eventually left the pool, as did our boy Alex. (The following year Wendal was minding his business in the Flamingo Pool, when he gets speared from behind by a total stranger. After surfacing from under water, Wendal turns around with a big "What the eff"....only to see Alex giving him a bear hug!)

    Even though Independence Day was still a day away, it didn't stop this group of lovely ladies from celebrating a little bit early. They were a riot! We had a good time with them.

    I actually had a hard time getting these pictures uploaded. Tapatalk wouldn't upload them because they were "adult pictures." I suppose that one picture IS a lot of skin. We stick around the pool drinking long enough to watch the booty shaking contest. Asses shook....people hollered....you know the drill. We head back to the room to shower up. Tonight is going to be a gambling night....unless I can get Anna, Carolyn, or the Virginia Tech girls to come hang out....

    We made our way into the room to get ready to gamble the night away. I hadn’t done a whole lot of gambling on the trip, as I didn’t know a whole lot about it. I had barely played poker, which I thought was going to be a big part of the trip.

    Wendal and I decide to start out at Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall. On the way out of Flamingo, we decide to walk by the poker room on our way out. It was still light outside, so we had plenty of time to come back and play. We are walking down the handicap ramp next to the poker tables when I hear Wendal pipe up....

    Now we have been drinking a little. Not a bunch yet....but I’m not sure Wendal ever totally sobered up from the night before. Anyway he yells at whoever will listen to him in the poker room as we walk by...

    “We’re gonna come back here and clean you fuckers out!”

    It got several laughs, as he said it with a smile on his face. I cracked up all the way out the door into the screaming heat of Las Vegas. 4/4 days of 100+ degrees. Luckily we aren’t outside for more than 45 seconds as we head to the $5 Craps table at Bill’s. The regular crew says hello to us as we get going. We played for an hour or two, again only playing $5 pass and the occasional $6 6 and 8. We just wanted to get some free whiskey while having some fun at the table. I had really started to like this game. I didn’t have a shitty session the whole trip.

    At this point, I have only about $250 cash on me. After 3-4 whiskey drinks, we make our way back to Flamingo for some 1/2 NL Holdem.

    This session lasted 2-3 hours, as we both bought in for $100. My stack stayed around $100 for most of the session. Wendal moves his stack up to around $250. He’s also pretty hammered at this point. Actually he was REALLY hammered. Drunkest he had been on the trip thus far. I know this because of the following story.

    Those of you that play poker in Flamingo May know the dealer “Tang.” Tang is a small Asian man that still deals there today. He happened to be dealing at our table for this interesting encounter.

    Four players call the $2 big blind, and the action gets to Wendal as the BB. He has no idea the action is on him...and Tang is visibly frustrated at his intoxication level after dealing a few hands.

    “Check or raise, sir.”

    No response. Tang puts three cards face down on the table, and right when he is about to turn the flop over.....this gets SLURRED...

    “Hey wait....it’s my turrrrrnnn!”

    Tang: I say your turn. You say nothing.

    Wendal: Well do “this” (slams hand on table) and get my attention or something. Good lord.

    Tang: fine. Your action.

    Wendal looks at his cards carefully.....”ahhhh check”

    The whole table rolls their eyes....especially Tang. The players kind of have a smirk, as Wendal May be shitfaced, but he has been pleasant to everybody. Genuinely making jokes and trying to make sure all are having fun. And it was a fun table.

    The flop comes JJ4. Two hearts.

    “Check” immediately comes out of Wendal’s mouth. Tang points to the next player....Wendal realizes Tang is waiting on someone else.....”HEY it’s still my turn!”

    Tang: NO, you say check!

    Wendal: I said....SHIT

    .....honestly he may have.....it was pretty damn hard to understand him.

    So Wendal bets $10. Two callers until a player across from him raises to $40. Wendal calls and the others fold.

    Turn comes: Ace of hearts

    Wendal: Fuck it all in

    Guy across from him snap calls. Once Wendal realizes this....he flips over AJ and says “Full House...HAA!!”

    Guy flips his shit and walks away.

    Once Wendal gets his $500 or so in chips in front of him...he tries 4 or 5 times to stack his chips, but they keep falling over. I go get him a rack and say....come on man, let’s go watch Karaoke at Bill’s.

    Around 1:00am we get over there and he insists on signing up. He’s actually a pretty good performer at karaoke, even shitfaced. I get us a couple of beers to help him sober up a little bit. That’s right....a Coors Light to hell him sober up. I learned that by getting him a beer, he won’t be drinking liquor. Thus making sure he doesn’t get any more slammed.

    He posts up at the bar, eyes glossy, watching people sing. Meanwhile, Earl still needed to get laid in Vegas!!! I had been texting Anna, Carolyn, and the VT girls. Carolyn never responded. Anna’s texts didn’t make any damn sense....she was obviously to drunk to find. She kept saying she was in Vegas. VT girls were somewhere else, I forget where now. So I was back to square one.

    I saw a pretty cute girl sitting by herself at a table near the stage, so I sit down at her table and say hi and introduce myself. She wasn’t dressed like a hooker, so that didn’t even cross my mind. Turns out she wasn’t....as right about then, her mother sits down with a pitcher of beer from the bar.

    I introduced myself, and say this is my new friend Lauren. She laughs and says hi I’m Rebecca, Lauren’s mom. I chat them up a bit...tell them my friend is about to do karaoke.

    “He’s awesome. You guys will love it!” Don’t let me down Wendal. I remember his interaction with Alex and his niece Milan earlier, and try to take a page out of that book. “Ma’am, I would like your permission to marry your daughter.” They both laugh and mom shoots me down pretty quick. Lauren seems pretty into me. I figure if I can get moms approval we can go hang out somewhere when mom goes to bed.

    I keep chatting with them, go buy them a drink....”I can’t wait until my buddy does karaoke. You’re gonna love it!” At this point mom is starting to see I’m not a shithead. She seems like she’s starting to come around. I just know that when Wendal performs, they will laugh so much and he will come wingman me right up to the altar!

    Wendal’s turn comes....”this is him! This is my buddy! This is going to be great!”

    Oh. My. God. His song of choice is “I’d Love to Lay You Down” by Conway Twitty. Within the first 10 seconds of the song, he sings the first line and proceeds to bend down....lay on the ground....and slowly dry hump the stage.

    I looked at Lauren and mom....they kind of look at me with a “this is your friend???” Look. I just said “you girls have a good night.” And walked to the bar to finish watching Wendal make a damn fool of himself.

    It’s about 3:00am now and I’m still empty handed with the ladies. Wendal thought karaoke was hilarious. I did too, just wish he kept it a little more PG-13. I can tell he’s getting his shit together at this point. We are in the area of Drai’s nightclub and see a group of Hispanic girls nearby and start to say hello....they say, our men are over there and point to them.

    Right around the corner, there are two girls playing a slot machine. They are pretty good looking, so we decide to go talk to the Beavers.

    No, seriously, they were Oregon State students/graduates. I forget which. (Oregon State’s mascot is the beavers) We talk for 10-15 minutes and they seem like they are interested. We all 4 agree we are starving. Where the hell are we going to find somewhere to eat at frigging 4:00am??? Oh yeah....VEGAS!!!!

    Is there a restaurant in Bill’s? We head to the back of the casino and find a restaurant....wait WHAT?!?!?

    $4.99 Steak and Eggs Graveyard Special

    Holy shit!!!! Yes please! We sit down and hang out while we chow down on steak and eggs. Our meal ends around 5:00am and we are done for. The meal totally killed us. We get their numbers and head to bed. Tomorrow is July 4th....gonna be a big day.

    OH MAN! I just realized I missed a part of the poker hand. The whole reason I mentioned Tang by name....

    After the flop and Wendal says "I said SHIT." Tang still was irked...so Wendal's dumbass says...."I hope you get drank by an astronaut." God what a moron.

    Omfg. Tang should have kicked his ass out. Lol Maybe Tang didn't make the connection? Fortunately for Wendal.

    Yeah being drunk might have made him say that, and being drunk might have saved him from being completely understood by Tang. Haha

    My favorite holiday of the year is Independence Day. We had an all day party in college at Clemson for the 4th or July in 2006. We had a 14 hour playlist of American Rock bands....woke up at 8am and played the national anthem on full blast, cracked open a Budweiser, and put a tape I had in the VCR....USA vs Portugal in 2002 World Cup where US won 3-2. This match was followed by watching Beavis and Butthead Do America. We drank all day long and to this day it’s probably the best party I’ve ever been a part of. You can imagine my excitement to celebrate in Las Vegas.

    July 4, 2010
    Day 5:

    It was a typical morning for the week. A few hours of sleep to sweat the alcohol out, followed by trying to figure out what all happened the night before. Time to refuel, so Flamingo buffet once again came calling. After some not so nice bowel movements and a cold shower, it was time to crack open a Bud. Even though it was an exciting day, Wendal and I started by just lounging in a couple of pool chairs with a bucket of beers.

    A man seemingly also in his 20’s walked up to us as we were chilling out.

    “Hey guys what’s up?”

    “Umm, just relaxing with a beer I guess.”

    “My name’s Xxxx, it’s nice to meet you.”

    I figure this guys trying to sell us something or works for Flamingo. He sounded like he was European, but couldn’t place his accent.

    “So what do you guys like to do?”

    Wendal and I kind of looked at each other....”Umm....drink and gamble pretty much I guess.”

    “Oh okay! Well I’ll see you guys around.”

    ......we were so confused....”what the shit was that all about?” “Dude I have no idea.....”

    After about a minute or two of sitting in total confusion, Wendal pipes up...”Did we just get hit on?”

    A lady in the chair next to us.....”you DEFINITELY just got hit on.”

    We were flattered. Time to kick it up a notch. Into the pool we go in search of....girls. “Not that there’s anything wrong with that!”

    Remember as you read through the happenings of today, my phone gets incredibly slow if I have more than 3 or 4 photos ready to post, so I will be making multiple posts, as there's a lot of pictures coming.

    This was another giant pool party where the water constantly felt a little warmer than it should. The first picture we have is memorable beacuse the group's last name was all the same, starting with an A. Mine was also the same last name. We took a group picture supporting "A's." It was already around 4:00pm so there were some intoxicated folks like the girl in this picture struggling to form an "A" with her hands.

    IMG_4156.JPG

    She finally eventually figured it out.

    IMG_4157.JPG

    This next picture is Wendal and me with an absolute legend. His name is Chi Chi. Look at the wristbands he has accumulated!!!! He also was the bronzest man I had ever laid eyes on. Every time I turned around, Chi Chi was hanging out with a different group of people. We figured Chi Chi was probably one of the most important men in the city of Las Vegas.

    ***Side note: I'm writing this report in between a busy week. I am a stay at home father with a 4 month old, and it's hard to find large lumps of time to be able to update. For those following along the last day or two, I'm going as quick as I can with updates! More soon to follow!

    Surprisingly, not too much else in terms of crazy stories at the pool that day. I do remember having such a good time that day hanging out with people we had seen all weekend. Eventually, it becomes time to leave the pool and head up to the room. I remember drinking a decent amount at the pool that day, and thinking to myself.....gosh for having that much booze, I sure don’t feel much more than a solid buzz....maybe 5 straight days of being hammered is a bad idea..........nah!!!!!

    So there’s three girls waiting on the line working elevator at Flamingo at the time (typical). Of course, picture time! We introduce ourselves and get their names....no idea what they were.

    [​IMG]

    A LOT of drunken excitement out of these ladies right here. And it was quite an elevator ride!

    [​IMG]


    “Hey, what about me?!?!?”

    [​IMG]

    Was about to hop back on the elevator in time to catch a ride up to the 19th floor. We showered and got ready for the night. Sarah and Ashley agreed to walk the strip with us today. We both thought we were in good position with these two. The Virginia Tech girls were still in town and continued to respond to texts, but Sarah and Ashley we’re leaving the next day. We still had tomorrow to work on the Hokies.

    As we left our room, our distant walk to the elevator would be one that I will never forget.....

    I was the first one out of the hotel room....and I waited to her the door slam shut behind me as Wendal strutted his way out the door. After passing a few rooms on the North wing of Flamingo, we make a left around the corner on the wing that faces the strip. About halfway down, we pass the regular trash cart while employees clean rooms.....except I notice something sticking out of the trash cart.

    "Excuse me sir....what is this? Did somebody throw this away?"

    A middle aged Hispanic man with an impressive mustache looks at me and with a smile he says...."Yes sir. You want it?"

    "Say no more sir!" I grabbed the object out of the trash cart, and Wendal and I continued down the hall to the main elevators.

    Some of you may remember seeing one of those "What Happens in Vegas" ads on TV. It shows a compilation of a few guys in different crowds with their seemingly Silver Cup that they had won, and everybody was excited about. Then it shows them back at their hotel, putting the plants back in it right where they found it. I can only assume that this commercial is based on Wendal and me from 2010.

    The object in the trash cart is a giant trophy. I felt like we would be stupid NOT to take it with us. Turns out it's one of the best decisions I have ever made. The plan was to meet up with Sarah and Ashley on the casino floor of Flamingo around 8:00. It was only 7:30, but we figured we could possibly play a penny slot or find a $5 craps table for a little whi.....HEY!

    Courtney, Kate, and Beth, the Virginia Tech girls see us walking through the casino near the food court. "Oh my god! Where did you get that trophy?"

    "Spelling Bee," I responded.

    Of course, they wanted their picture taken with us.

    IMG_4162.JPG

    From Left to Right, Earl, Beth, Kate, Wendal. Courtney took the picture....she had the personality of a doorknob. Kate was clearly the target, but this would have to wait until tomorrow night. She wasn't the most outgoing person either. Beth, on the other hand, was hilarious. She was a ton of fun....just didn't find her all that attractive.

    "What do you guys want to do?" Beth asked.....Uh oh.....we knew we were about to meet up with Sarah and Ashley soon. We didn't want to shrug them off, as tomorrow was going to be the day we really made a move here. At this point, Kate and Courtney both chime in and say they are kind of tired, and may just go back to the room for a nap, and try to go out again later. "Fine....go take your nap in VEGAS of all places! My ass is gonna have fun anyway!" Hell yeah, Beth! But this still didn't solve our dilemma....the last thing we needed was a 5th wheel getting between us and our ladies of the night!

    Beth hangs out with us at a slot machine for a good 45 minutes or so while we collect a free drink or two from a waitress. She seems intrigued by the whole free drinks while gambling. "I want to gamble!" About that time, we get the text from the Oregon State gals...they are in Flamingo. We tell Beth that two of our friends are here, and we were going to go meet up with them. "Cool, where are they? Do they want to gamble with us?" Ayyyyeee.......
