Just came across my diary from 1989. Wow, was I a fool!

    Well this is embarrassing, apparently back in 1989 a small group of us went into the city, Greenwich Village to be exact, to celebrate my 19th birthday. It appears I lost 500 bucks on a street corner, to a very legitimate game of Three-card Monty. What a dope!

    Anyone else have something they'd like to share, that's equally as foolish??

    My two son-in-laws lost some money (not sure how much) to a 3 card Monty game on one of the overpasses in Vegas around 4 or 5 years ago. They were old enough to know better, but they had it " figured " out. We still give them hell over it.

    I don't think I've ever seen that. I'm surprised they don't have it downtown. And, I guess you're not counting bad investments. ;)

    I guess $500 was a lot of money back then.

    Honestly, money wise, probably not too much. But more like, how could I be so dumb to get suckered into a "game" like that. I was just young and dumb but maybe better for it today? Or then again, maybe not, but at least now I gamble on "regulated" games, instead of games on street corners, lol.. :whistle:

    Your post about 1989 got me thinking about my first man crush!
    The Majik Man! Predecessor to some fellow named Favre...

    Hey Richard..I was there for the transformation.Tampa Bay 'Big Sombero" for the FL Battle of the Bays..Majik got hurt late in a blowout already and Favre mopped up..
    Then starting with the next week vs Cincy the rest is history...9/13/1992

    Sorry to get the thread off track a bit Happy Jersey21 Girl :headbang:
    But you must have been wasted or something to do that..no other explanation based on reading your past history here..
    Anyway it's the past right?
    Have a great trip and best wishes at the Tables...I never say GL..You got it already.
