Random Observations on my Shreveport Trip

Postby HornMafia on Sun Jul 27, 2003 6:13 pm

-- Losing the thread on a tire isn't the best way to start out the trip.

-- The used car tire shop by the Waskom Police Department looks seedy, but there are nice folks working there.

-- Louisiana Downs was better than I thought it was going to be.

-- I suck at picking horses, except when they are 1:1 odds.

-- But I didn't bet on the horses, so I'm good.

-- There were a surprising number of hot chicks at Louisiana Downs, including a group of 4 that was exceptionally pleasing to the eye.

-- One girl in our group made $74 on one race. It was cool.

-- The suites at the Hollywood are nice (but not as cool as the Magnolia, of course).

-- The TV sound piped into the bathroom is something I need to incorporate into my future house.

-- Slot machines are evil.

-- Blackjack is evil.

-- I thought I was bad for losing $40 in 10 minutes at the Blackjack table, but a guy in the elevator asked his buddy, "How do you lose $1000 in 4 minutes?"

-- His buddy's response, "Shake it off, man. Shake it off."

-- In a Louisiana casino first, the hot chicks outnumbered the mullets.

-- Casino War was a popular game.

-- It's no fun being in a casino pissed off because you are losing with an empty wallet.

-- One of my friend's moms claims to have won $36,000 in Shreveport last year, and lost $19,000.

-- From the stories I hear, I think she might be telling the truth.

-- She owes the IRS $4,000 by August 8th.

Maybe more later.

Learn to play craps. Free odds is the only bet in the casino with no house edge.

Casino War is for idiots.

Last time I was there, there was a guy standing in the parking garage by the elevator trying to sell his camcorder.

Sad, really.

In Vegas, they walk up to you on the street and talk about how they're out of money and "just need $1 for a hot dog at that restaurant over there."

Some people have to learn bankroll control.
