Congrats OP!!! Don't know you but super happy for you. Guessing since you haven't logged on since you went on media blackout that you had an epic night. Looking forward to hearing about tears of joy and hope you didn't blow the whole wad at the Rhino.

If i wasnt paying so much attention to Ryan I woulda taken Prescott at big odds, not because i thought he deserved it over Elliot but thought the writers would vote for him. You had 30k? if you havent used bitcoin and need some tips pm me. The site may shut down before you get that via $2500 check every three months haha. bitcoin could have it all in a week

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Gonna try and do a semi decent TR from the start if for nothing else to help myself remember it all since I often get sloppy drunk and cant recall much when i get home.

checked into Aria, had 3 nights comped got casino rate for Fri,Sat. They said no suites available $20/$40 trick with added per night charge got me into what they said was the last suite available for SB weekend. it was nice with a toilet that
made one bowel movement worth the upgrade charge


Wasnt feeling great and very tired so took it easy and got a stretch session from a friend that is a certified stretch therapist. it was great, better than any chiropractor or physical therapist by far. slept a lot better because of it. I highly recommend
Spent the next day at the aria spa, love it

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Friends from home arrived Thurs night, a female friend who i grew up with and her husband who is also a good friend that enjoys sportsbetting also. I am by no means a "baller" I am a degen and I just dont appreciate a dollar like i should, but my female friend doesnt gamble and when her husband said he was giving her $100 to gamble at once I waned to see the show. She put it on red in the high limit room in Aria. It hit, she was pumped and it was very entertaining to watch the emotion.

I have hung out in that room for a very long time because of some friends that gamble very big and have gotten to know a lot of the staff. We stuck around talking to a dealer friend and he told em some stories that I may have posted on my other thread about interacting with some rappers or other celebs while very intoxicated through the years cause a friend used to always get invited to the Jordan golf turney.

His min bet was 1K so switched to another table that was $300 a hand. Didnt even wanna play that big but said screw it. played 9 hands without losing. 1 push, 2 black jacks and a double down win. I had seen nothing but 10s and aces come out of that deck for everyone and stopped, told the guy im getting out before all the crap cards come out. He kept playing, lost and seemed to mad with me for leaving. I think i drunkedly lost 1k or so somewhere later that night but it was fun at the time. Took my free drinks, cashed out and walked to PH



Seeing that pic reminded me what happened on the walk. I was toting 2 vodka drinks and a perrier. 2 different hookers asked me "triple fisting ?" i responded to both by asking how much does that cost ? When i got to the bridge a homeless guy asks me for one. there was a little left in one and i said you really want the ass end of that drink man? he said yeah, so i gave it to him. the bastard poured it out and said give me some of that one. Me being naively nice too much, actually took the glass back and poured him some. he looked at me and said you drink some first cause i guess he didnt trust me. I grabbed the glass back, started walking backwards away from him, looking him dead in the eye and slammed the drink in a big gulp. I said you sum ***** you are too ugly for a rapist to wasted good liquor on you anyways. Maybe that was bad karma and i shouldnt have reciprocated his assholishness cause i think i ran pretty bad at PH and i know i got drunk enough to where i dont remember a week later so no telling what i did in there.

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

The next day, Friday, we spent a while at the spa. 5 day pass $120 cant beat it. Went to Circus Circus steakhouse which has become a great tradition. Geez that is some good food. I may have to go there right now.


Went to Encore to see if a friend had some passes for the Super Bowl viewing like they did last year. Found out they werent doing it this year and now had the task of finding somewhere to watch along with finding a spot for the NFL awards show.

Left there to go see M Jackson ONE at M Bay. I have never been to a Cirque show so had nothing to compare it to, but as much as I love M Jackson's music i was a little disappointed after everyone said it was the best show in town, but I still enjoyed it.

Drawing a blank on the rest of the night but I know i got hammered, went to PH and no telling what happened there.

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Saturday I woke up to an awesome gidt, the last Matt Ryan jersey in town. I am bandwagon cause i bet on him and the falcons but have become a huge fan. Peyton retiring killed me and so I now pull for who used to be called "the poor man's Peyton Manning" I told them giving me that jersey to wear this weekend I felt like Rocky when Apollo gave him his trunks before he fought Mr. T



Was still trying to find a spot to watch awards show. PH sportsbook told me no sound. So did Aria and the high limit room couldnt guarntee noone would be in the couch by the TV. Then I found out that the awards show was gonna be on a 3 hour time delay for the west. I thought about turning my phone off but decided to get the live video feed from a tablet and watch in sportsbook. A waitress sees the champagne i had bought and she said it would be a $50 dollar corking fee and i had already pissed away enough on that champagne (soon to be literally pissed away) so we went out by Five 50 pizza and set up shop.



I was getting very nervous. Ryan was a huge favorite, but I was just so afraid of losing. It woulda killed me. If I had lost that and the S Bowl went the way it did, you may be reading about a suicide via balcony jump from the Cosmo instead of this.


They brought out none other than Sherriff Manning to present the award who got me the biggest win of my pathetic gambling life. I was hoping he would announce my 2nd biggest. Couldnt hear the sound too good but thought I read his lips saying "Matt Ryan"


I didnt wanna get happy early but saw em show an unexcited E Elliot, then a video feed of M Ryan and just went ape****. I jumped up and down similar to the way Steve Martin did in The Jerk when the new phonebooks arrived. I accidentally broke 3 or 4 glasses and everyone had no idea what the hell was wrong with me. the staff at five 50 saw her filming it and must have thought we were setting up some type of jackass stunt. they looked pissed and someone said they called security. A lady came to clean up the glass and we gave her $25. My female friend was upset for the lady cleaning up and I assured her she was glad it happened, look at her smiling, shoot i would love to make $25 a minute

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

We went over to high limit lounge, sat there a good while, drinking that champagne and a variety of other spirits. I was ecstatic, not so much from the feeling of winning cause he was heavy fav, but from not having to worry about losing it anymore. That was a good time I will always cherish






Made our way over to Cosmo and sitting near the entrance, charging their phone or something I saw two of the sweetest, most beautiful girls I have ever met. Cut up with them for a while and they were just unbelievably sweet and friendly. There are many hot girls in Vegas but none nearly as nice. It makes me sad I will never see them again..... to all the potential trolls, they were absolutely not hookers, if so I would have applied for a loan


Hung out at cosmo a while then the line for pizza was too long so went to Eggslut. holy moly it was good



My friends went to bed and I kept on drinking. Have no idea what I did but I do remember getting back to the room, turned on the tv and watched a replay of the awards show right when Peyton came out. They had a separate bedroom with the door shut but I still woke them up by yelling with uncontrollable excitement actually hearing the Sheriff announce it. What a great night, will never forget it.... except for the very drunk hours I cant remember less than a week later

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Woke up Super Bowl Sunday still unsure where we were watching. Last minute a friend that plays big got us some tickets to the party at the Wynn. Walking in Toby Keith was next to me and I was thinking this must be a nice party and man it was. Unbelievable set up









Several people were there I recognized, T Keith, Demarcus Ware, and Steve Wynn himself. Everything was complimmentary, great food and top shelf drinks but I was too into the game to drink or enjoy it all as much as I should.

I had taken the Falcons to win SB at least one bet most weeks all season long, including 70-1, also took Matt Ryan for SB MVP before the playoffs started at big odds. Could have been the 3rd biggest win ever for me. After the pick 6 on Brady oh man I was excited.

Halftime I went to the bathroom and run into Herman Cain who I have always supported. Told him I had taken him to win the president 5 years ago at 300-1. He really didnt know how to respond to that haha. I could have made over 300k if he had gotten the nomination cause he woulda smoked Obama but George Soros probly paid some woman to say he harassed her and that was the end of that. At one time he was 6-1 to win and I was pumped about those bets. Didnt mean to get political



I was all excited and was asked who is that ? Stole a line from Coming to America and said.... just some man I met in the restroom. HAAAA!!!!

When they went up 28-3 I thought it was in the bag. Ryan got his 2nd td pass, had a perfect passer rating, a shoe in for MVP. My buddy said holy crap man, you are gonna hit the trifecta this weekend (Ryan reg season MVP, SB MVP, Falcons win) Started grinning from ear to ear and I'm sure you know it went downhill from there. In OT 1st and goal at the 2.. I could not believe they passed, it was close to being picked. If only it had, Bellicheck would catch more hell than Pete Carroll has, but classic devilish Bellicheck luck, of course he got away with it. When it was over I just sat motionless. I didn't lose that much but coulda won big and from being a big NFL fan, despising Brady/Pats it was a loss I know I will absolutely never get over

Re: Super Bowl TR please please let Matt Ryan get mvp

Was really bummed after that but tried my best to suck it up. Had to take jersey off cause I was tired of hearing the mouths of Pats fans. Met up with a female friend that lives here, we all played poker at PH. There was an old man completely wasted who called my 50 raise after river when I had the nuts and the pot was only $30. he had Q high. He kept calling anything, probably gave away 1.5k. The dealer said he smelled awful and had shat himself. Just another night at PH. Eventually wound up at Cosmo for pizza. Then hung out at high limit bar for a bit. (I didnt drink that louis the 18th or whatever it is, but the bottle looks cool)







Left Aria next morning, moved to Cosmo. Had 2 nights comped in normal room $20 trick didnt get anything free but she said since I had casino rate she could get us a good discount on a suite, so for $100 a night we got upgraded to a great wraparound balcony suite. Made a quick video

I was looking into FST before I came out to Vegas last year, as I have seriously bad spasticity in my legs through MS.

I never got around to hooking anything up, as the guy I contacted couldn't fit me in while I was in town.

Thanks for the link.
