Great flick if you haven’t seen it by the way.
No, you haven’t stumbled into some drunken rant by yours truly, you merely have the pleasure of seeing just how excited I am to be traveling to Vegas this weekend. I’m not going to confirm or deny the rumors of gambling, carousing with the ladies and general debauchery that continue to follow me around, but let’s just say that some good times have been had in Vegas in the past. I will fully admit that the upcoming weekend will involve some merriment, but I’m not merely going to Vegas to have some stories to share with my friends, I’m actually off to do some business as I will be helping Greg Ambrosius and Charlie Wiegert run the National Fantasy Football Championship.
What is the NFFC? It is the premier, big ticket fantasy football event in the country with the grand prize winner being guaranteed a check for $100,000. The event is held, live, in Vegas, Chicago and New York simultaneously, and if you are unable to attend any of those live shindigs you can always participate via the online leagues that are available for the event. To learn more about everything NFFC click on the link to Fantasy Football Championship.
As a side note, for those of you wondering what I look like away from the computer, you can also go to the baseball site for the Fantasy Baseball Championship and look for me to appear amongst the pictures on the home page (I’m wearing an Angels’ jersey along side our head honcho, Ryan Houston). Oh yeah, we are now unable to participate in either event moving forward, after all “we” purchased the company, so all of you out there won’t have to worry about having to defeat the best fantasy team that Fanball has to offer (that’s right, Mr. Houston and myself have a pretty fair track record going).
For those of you that will be in Vegas, don’t forget to come up and say hello. I’d love to hear from you my loyal fans, and no, I didn’t just call you “The Loyal” like Criss Angel calls his followers. I will tell you that I love that guy’s magic/illusionist act which you can see on A&E or live if you visit the Luxor in Vegas. Hey, maybe I can get in to see him on Saturday night? That has to be one wild show with Cirque Du Soleil. Could do without all the makeup and dark nail polish though.
Anyway, I’m off to Vegas, so I may not be posting for a few days. Hey, you don’t expect me to turn down a chance to have some good old fashioned fun to write about sports do you? Your right, I’ll probably be typing up a report pretty soon because my chances of going “crazy” in Vegas are about as good as Bengie Molina winning the NL MVP.
