    Speak for yourself.

    I ate at Moe's Southwes Grill Monday and got the spicy guacamole on my burrito. Not fun at all.

    You may wonder what that has to do with gambling, eh? Everytime you eat Mexican food you are taking a serious gamble.
    And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
    And the microphone smells like a beer

    You mean like locker room bonuses?

    If you have the money that DW has, you can go into a casino get your own table play every spot on the table and basically control the cards (blackjack) and make a killing. This isnt the first time a Casino has done this to somebody.

    No I mean just in general prelim guys aren't typically clearing 10k to show and win, and I'm guessing they aren't exactly at the top of the list when bonuses are paid out. If he can tip a guy 10k for bringing his soup out probably means there might be a little more room in the budget to pay the undercard a bit more.

    Gambling isn't a problem if you're winning.

    I used to be successful poker player, not like filthy rich or anything, but I made more than I did at my regular job. I lost the passion for it though, so successful nights only stroked my ego and helped my wallet, and poor nights made me hate my life. I miss it sometimes these days, but it's too hard to find a good game where I live, and I don't really like the environment of the AC area, no way I could live there. There is a casino like an hour and a half away, but I don't feel like doing that with any consistency.

    I cannot picture Dana as a successful gambler. I could most certainly see him as a guy that plays a ton, and for a high amount, but I'd say his runs of good luck are due to volume, not skill. I could be wrong though, maybe he is foul mouthed rain man.

    Stealing is wrong!

    Thats how I am as well. My mood was way too dependent on a stupid game.

    So if anyone else wins enough at Casinos to be either cut back or asked to stop playing, it's because they are excellent gamblers. But because it's Dana White, it must be luck?
    The Jets have won more Superbowls than you have.
