After The ‘Troubles in Toronto’, my wife and I are now in Las Vegas. We didn’t go to Vegas because of ‘The Troubles’, but the timing was good.
So now I’m sitting in our room at The Mirage, and there’s some important things you should know.
Most of the waitresses in the major hotels are fairly sensational.
The bookmakers at Caesar’s Palace are giving the Habs 5-1 odds to win the Stanley Cup. Detroit’s the favourite at 3.5-1. The way the boys have been playing lately, I’m surprised it’s not about 50-1.
I shook Pete Rose’s hand and told him he should be in the Hall of Fame. He was sitting at a table in a collectables shop in Caesar’s Palace and he thanked me very much, but he looked away as he was saying it in a sort of unfriendly way. He looked really bored as he waited for someone to buy his book so he could sign it for $89. Pete Rose is no Rocket Richard.
I didn’t buy the book. The handshake was good enough. I’ve gotta save my money for gambling.
Here’s my first big winning. There’s more of this to come, I’m sure.
Habs play Ottawa tonight. Will they show up, or will they stink? All I know is, I’m not putting any money on them just yet.
Geez, I didn’t ask what Ottawa’s odds are. I’ll have to get back to you on that.
