So I don’t wanna say I’m on a hot streak bc I don’t want to possibly jinx any future trips upcoming (March Madness), but as I mentioned last week, this past wknd I was in CA and while there decided to take a quick 24 hr trip to Vegas. My buddy was out there for his kids soccer tournament, so it gave me a chance to meet up with him and, of course, have a day there to test my luck. Now understand something about this friend. It’s running joke between us he’s one of the worst craps rollers ever. I think the last time he rolled two points was 2015 or something. I mean, awful. So with that said, I can report that redeemed himself with the second greatest craps roll I’ve ever been a part of. It was bananas. I can’t even begin to describe it. Just know there was a lot of screaming, some finger pistols firing into the air, some running around, and a shock factor as to what was happening. So yeah, I guess I can’t make fun of him anymore for his horrible rolling. On the other hand, he’ll never come close to doing that again, so I guess I can still bust his balls when he has numerous other sh***y rolls.
So there’s stories like that, then there’s always an opposite effect that I come across every single trip to Vegas without fail. There’s always someone at the craps table that’s just…weird. Unexplainable. This trip was no different. So Saturday morning before I left, playing craps at 7 in the morning at Mandalay (always a good idea), there’s one table open, and about 8 of us on it. I walked up late in the middle of a guy’s roll, but was told he’d been doing well. This guy was drunk. Like, totally sh*tfaced, and I could sense that within 10 seconds at the table. Loud, yelling, cursing, pounding the table, the whole 9 yards. So from the time I got to the table, here’s what he did on EVERY ROLL, which was probably 10 or 12 rolls.
His point was 9. Before every roll he’d yell to our end of the table what we want. We’d say “54.” Then he’d yell back “F** YOU BITCH. 45.” Then pound his fist on the table 3 times and roll. And I mean, YELL. He did it EVERY TIME. And then when we’d switch it up on him and say “45,” he’d shoot back “F*** YOU BITCH, 54.” And they let it happen. The whole area could hear it. I saw the pit bosses looking at each other and knew a confrontation was coming at some point. For those that don’t know, the tables don’t let you act like that. Ever. They will tell you to watch your language and if you don’t comply, they have no problem removing you from the premises. They just let this guy go and never said anything to him. Then when he finally crapped out, three cops came over, they surrounded him, you could tell he was giving them lip, and then they finally took him away. So that was my 24 hrs in Vegas. I’m telling you, I have craps stories of people at the table every time. I’ll share those in the future as well. They’re always a good time. What a great people watching place Vegas is, if nothing else.
A little low on “Reader Emails” and “Dr. Reality Steve” for this week. Get those in. I know some of you maybe don’t want to be part of the “He Said, She Said” podcast with any issues you’re having, so as always, “Dr. Reality Steve’s” door is open for an email. I definitely want to try and get a few in this week.
Of course, episode #2 of “Temptation Island” is on USA tonight at 10/9c. The couples choose who they want to go on their first date with – in front of their significant others. A bit awkward. And for Javen and Shari – A LOT awkward. In an exclusive clip from tonight, Evan is caught in the middle of a love…triangle? Quadrangle? He’s got a lot of women after him, something we’ll definitely talk to Kaci about on Thursday in our weekly podcast:
