    My Trip Report

    So its almost time. The goal is to try semi-live....buuuut.....well Vegas. So we'll see.
    Mrs. Irish finished this just in time....it was touch & go!

    This will be my 7th Superbowl and Mrs Irish 3rd.
    She wasn't into football until a couple years ago when all my efforts finally paid off. What was I thinking???
    I created a monster!! If you see a lunatic at the Aria party screaming at Belichick from the opening kick-off you found her!
    So the plans is to arrive 4 hours before kick-off, grab bags, hit the taxi line, don't get tunneled, check into MGM and run to Aria without having a heart attack!. What was I thinking? Wasn't planning on going this year but after my boy Brady worked his magic it was GAME ON! So we fly SW out of Providence-Midway-Vegas with plane change in Chicago. Weather, plane problem, pilots calling in sick, any problem at all and we're screwed. If we end up watching the game in an airport lounge instead of Aria the aforementioned monster will be filing for divorce! I'm sweating it just thinking about all the things that can go wrong.
    Anyhoo, it's 5 nights, 1st three at MGM, haven't laid my head on one of their pillows in 5 or 6 years, then the last two at Cosmo.
    Plans are:
    1. Fourteen hour road trip Tuesday
    2. this artsy-fartsy thing https://www.bellagio.com/en/entertainment/gallery-of-fine-art.html
    3. try a few new restaurants because it will be too cold to eat outside at our usual haunts
    4. Kill 'em at the BJ tables until Murren cries "Uncle" and turn the lights off!
    5. Cash these two bad boys in!

    Only bummer sounds like the weather. Last year it was high 70's, this year low - mid 50's.
    Almost a 25° drop so no patio at MAG! I know, first world problems!

    Best of luck to everyone out there and as my boy would say.....LET'S GOOOOOOO!!!!!!

    The current exhibit at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art is pretty damn cool. I hope you enjoy the infinity room. If you can, get there just before 10am when the gallery opens so you don't have to wait in line.

    Thanks Amk, fingers crossed.
    Jimbo, I pre-booked the gallery exposition so we are scheduled for 2:00 time. Thanks for the heads up anyway.

    Dude you deserve to cash. I like how you bought those bets on opening day, one right after the game started and the other near the end.

    Thanks Chuck. I've bet the Pats every Superbowl since 2002. In Sept 2001 I was at the Barbary Coast after Bledsoe got blown up the week before. Being up a few $$ I decided to put $100 on them to win the SB.
    They had some new kid named Brady starting. I've made the same bet ever since. They dont owe me a thing!
    This year I put it down at the start of week 1 game vs Houston.
    The lunatic insisted I place another bet toward the end of the game on our way out to the airport. She is obviously a more astute handicapper than I am!

    Where's your connection, just MDW with a 1:40 layover? You'll make it if you go wheels up within 45 mins late.

    Made it to Midway. I'll start to relax when our ride shows up at the gate. In the meantime back to Defcon 3!

    Congrats on another Pats win. But really, how can you possibly yell at Belichick? You Pats fans are so spoiled. Lol:trophy::trophy::trophy::trophy::trophy::trophy:
