Then we went to a nice city dinner and played craps. It was fun. I like playing craps. I like Vegas Free drinks. I also like only being in vegas for 1 or 2 days. Good trip.
So then we made the trek back to Vegas. I was all antsy because I was sick of nature and needed a city. Also, my college hockey team was in the national title game, and I wanted to place some money on the spartans. Someone wouldn't shut up about hockey the whole trip and it was really annoying to somebody else. We arrived at the Luxor, and took a shower. I immediately/impatiently went to watch the Spartans. Since it was the 3rd period, there was no more betting. This was annoying, and i didn't get why they wouldn't take my money since the team was down, but whatever. I find a bar. I have to flirt with the bartender in order for them to make the sound be NCAA Hockey Championship rather than a no name boxing match. I finally win. Then we make the game tying goal!!!!!! I call a few fellow spartans and order another drink. Then it gets tight - Lerg makes a post to post save, stands on his head, keeping the spartans in the game. I'm pulling my hair out....then, in the final mintues of the game, Spartans apply pressure, Abdelkader 'HIT THE CROSSBAR'. Kennedy goes behind the net and SCOOOOOOOOOOOOORES!!!! Spartans are up 1 goal with a minute remaining. We freak out and BC looks totally decimated. We score an empty netter after they came on strong and won the NCAA title!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
