Years ago, I was playing blackjack at the Isle of Capri in Biloxi at the same table as these two middle aged skanks. They had the hots for the dealer and must have thought he was playing with his own money. When he would bust, they would say "Oh no Todd, that's too bad!" I had to get up and leave. ...

I went to Vegas for a conference a few years ago. The conference ended in the early afternoon and I had a red-eye flight, so I had a few hours to kill. Sat down at the blackjack table at the Hard Rock with $20-$40 bucks. Got up with $300+. I'm the sort of guy who doesn't help them build casinos, so ...

Ah, I found a story that explains this: The Pacers sucked for years after Reggie Miller, Mark Jackson, et al left and the Indiana economy was hit hard by the recession. That caused fans to lose interest in going to games. And the fact that the Pacers were on a losing skid to end the season makes peo...

They need to make the NFL Draft happen sooner after the season ends, not later. Dragging it out for so long causes teams to overthink the whole deal and it gives the players who are drafted not enough time to learn the system and prepare for training camp. The draft ought to be a couple of weeks aft...

I liked it quite a bit. It does follow the Weeds formula of being about a pretty white woman who is actually quite a horrible human being.
