Hey, who is that hunk a few posts up?

That is an older picture of Dan Abrams (now with ABC News).  He is reporting in the clip that Drew posted.

You could own your new criminal status, and cultivate a "bad boy" image.   ;)

I am really surprised that Texas has never approved some form of gambling, especially with our budget woes this year.  The closest place for your to gamble may be the Lucky Eagle Casino in Eagle Pass.  I see their billboards when I drive out to Del Rio.  Looks ultra hip and fabulous  ::)




You know, I never do well at a brick and mortar table. I do not have a poker face...at all. My tells are like flashing billboards. When I get Pocket aces I cant hold back the smile, if I can hold back a smile my ears turn red. Plus, I am fish at the table, rarely aggressive. Not to mention the rules at a table are a minefield for me...gotta count the chips and stack them, cant splash them into the middle, cant flip your cards into the muck, and I ahve a tendancy to bet out of turn. BLah. Never won much at a brick and mortar, have won thousands online over the years. Last time in Vegas, I stayed away from the tables...but I did net about $120 on the slots.

I live within 10 miles of 6 casinos here in South Florida (the largest being the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL, where Anna Nicole died) - the Seminoles actually own all of the Hard Rock entertainment complexes and restaurants worldwide.  Each member of the tribe receives a check of around $7,000 a month; unfortunately, it leads to many having drug/alcohol problems - and many non-Seminole women trying to get pregnant by a Seminole so they can get the monthly check.

I usually go to the casino three or four times a year - usually with my mother when she is in town.  The most I have ever won was $3,500 one night on the slots.  But, I never take more than I can afford to lose.  I do it more for mindless entertainment and to hang out with my mother.  She is usually pretty lucky and has won more than $15 or $20,000 over the past three years.  I have hit the bingo up with her there a couple of times and sometimes go with friends when the bar and club scene becomes too tiresome.

I had no luck last time in Vegas, but did do pretty good in Biloxi when I was there on business several years back, winning $300 off of $1 played in a slot machine.

The old Seminole Casino in Hollywood still gives free drinks while playing the boards, slots, cards or bingo - which makes for a nice night of drinking on occasion.

We're finally getting casinos here in Ohio.  I'll be about 30 minutes away from gambling.  Ohio long resisted allowing gambling until they calculated how much revenue is lost to all our surrounding states.  The furthest anyone in OH has to drive is 2 hours to reach a casino.  I live dead center of the state and can head any direction and hit a casino in 2 hours.  I enjoy going to the river boat casino just outside Cinci on the Ohio River.
Being honest is not wronging others, continuing the dishonesty is.
