    I was only slightly obnoxious and overbearing during my week here with the updates on this report.

    Pretty much abandoned it, but that's OK.

    Ended up putting $1000 down in NFL Future bets last night at Westgate (Packers O 9 Wins, Packers SB 20-1, Cardinals U 8.5 Wins)....then I ended up drinking and smoking the remainder of the evening with some good peoples and never did get back to any tables or machines.

    I will be leaving here this morn up roughly $2,000....so that's acceptable given I haven't had a positive trip in a few years.

    I don't subscribe to the 'wrap-up' post idea and, even though a ton of great things happened/went down, the summary is just that I drank, smoked, gambled, and made memories by staying at The Alexis Park.

    I never made it to a boob club and the Flamingo never did service my room, so the $400 in $10's and about $125 of the $5's remain in the Wells Fargo envelope and I'll just stash it all in my shoe box (Kangaroo's) back home and bring it out with me the next time.

    I always love coming out for a football weekend in the Fall, but I think I'm going to skip it this year and just wait until the Super Bowl in February.

    Thanks for checking in and behave yourselves until it happens all over again, for Christ's sake.

    Damn for an “abandoned” trip report you did pretty good.

    Glad you won too bad you blew it on some bad future bets. Should’ve bet Bills to win SB, money in the bank!

    What punishment? $5 million dollars to a billionaire is like $1k to the average guy. Draft pics? Negligible. And the players that actively cheated? Nada, zippo, nothing. So much for punish all cheaters.

    LOL. Yes, if they had actually punished the players, they would have had to punish ALL of the players they found cheating and it was not just the Astros. I get it, they cheated. i actually hate it. That being said, cheating on some scale is as old as any sport...I would have been okay with suspensions for all, but I laugh in the faces of those who continue to comment about the Astros and act like nothing else happened. It is over; get over it. I don't deny the cheating, but the whole "Altuve shirt coming off deal" had less to do with the what happened a couple of years ago than it did to an action by Judge. If he trots around the bases and enjoys homering in enemy territory, the whole thing does not happen.

    Yes, I hate all the crap talking and stuff like that, too. Shut up and play the game!

    Stay off my lawn!

    As I was helping derail the trip report slightly, I noticed that the next trip is a long way off. Dang it. I really enjoy your reports and can't wait for the next one!

    Great report, in fact, the reason I'm back on VMB after a long hiatus is to catch up on a TD TR.

    Fuk Jose is right.
