I'm heading to Vegas, and the cross I have to bear for playing poker while I'm out there with the wife is powerwalking to every casino on the Strip. I'm looking forward to this, given that it's going to be roughly the same temperature in Las Vegas this week as it is on the sunny side of Mercury. I'm seriously considering wearing a lead-based heatshield on my back, like one of the Apollo space capsules re-entering Earth's atmosphere. Why do they call it a "dry heat"? ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT DEGREES IS HOT, REGARDLESS OF HUMIDITY. I think that's self-evident. That said, I thought I'd try and make my Vegas Death March at least mildly interesting. So here's what I'm going to do...... It's a simple game. Just give us your funniest poker story here and add the names of 2 Las Vegas strip casinos at the end of the story. The 5 that make me laugh the hardest as I slowly trudge up Las Vegas Blvd while baking like an Alaskan crab will win a $5 and $1 chip from one of their two casino choices that I will ship to them. Maximum of one entry per person. Deadline for entries is 11:59pm Monday the 29th. Good luck. I'll reply with the winners on Tuesday morning.
