* I was blanking on it since I didn't take notes, but I was at the same table as the Tsunami Hitchhiker and Jason during my brief appearance at WPBT: Aladdin. Duh. Pleasure meeting you both.
* Talked to Chad briefly, but otherwise I don't think I met the Minnesota crew. That means I missed an opporunity to compare notes on how to survive three hour waits at Canterbury Park and discuss whether Peter King of Sports Illustrated is on crack given his pick of the Vikings to go to the Super Bowl out of the NFC. I'll look you guys up next time I'm out that way.
* I had the surly and bored roulette dealer at the Club overpay me (by $20) when I cashed out. The floor caught it and it wasn't any big deal to me to make it right -- just an oddity, since I almost expect the occasional short-pay attempt but never an overpay.
I think that's everything I've had come to mind so far -- My thoughts are scattered and it's proving difficult to get readjusted to the regular grind. There is no bouncing out of bed on three hours sleep when all you're faced with is another day at the office.
In other news, Party had a June reload bonus (BONUSJUN) that ended yesterday. I didn't get the remains of my bankroll back into play fast enough to take advantage.
The Spurs seem to be a unanimous pick over the Pistons. I'd think you could get pretty favorable odds on the Pistons if you, uh, had access to a sports book and were a betting man (or woman).
For you midwestern bloggers, Allegiant Air is starting up Las Vegas service in August on Mondays and Fridays out of South Bend, Indiana. Direct flight, and through September 30, you can get one leg of the trip from $79.00 according to their website. Aside from wholly inadequate ticket counter staffing in Vegas (and the lack of kiosk or internet check in for people not checking bags), I thought Allegiant was most acceptable.
Also, Hooters Air has direct flights out of Gary, Indiana starting today. Visit Hooters Air for details. Fares start at $99.00 each way, with 2 flights per week.
