1. The Super Bowl might generate more wagering than any other annual event in the United States (Look It Up), but this Packers / Steelers game is one we'd suggest is best left alone. The two teams both have an above-average passing attack, and somewhat "questionable" secondaries. (Yeah, I know. Polamalu, Woodson, et cetera. Great individual players with better defensive schemes.) If you like both teams, take that as a hint. You're more likely to suffer a bad beat on this one at the end of the game when some player on one team makes the play of the year, when you SHOULD have had your money on the respective NFC / AFC Championship Games, which were easier to handicap.
2. The Green Bay Packers haven't been behind in a game by more than seven points ALL SEASON, and the Pittsburgh Steelers have some 38 Super-Bowl-tested players heading for Dallas. That's why we refer to thing #1 above. Don't bet the game. Too much heartache. Wait for the 2011 season (If we HAVE one).
3. Word was that parking, I repeat, PARKING, at the Super Bowl was going for as high as (are you sitting down?) $990.00, and THAT parking lot is already SOLD OUT. At $990 a POP. I'm in the wrong business. Wait, and there's a TAX on the parking space you're paying for? Yeah, I'm DEFINITELY in the wrong business. Hey, there's parking available at the Arlington Bank Of America for just $55, but it's more than a mile away. Bring your sneakers. Hey, if I'm sitting at the drive-thru ATM, do I get hit up for the $55? Just wondering....
4. Aces Casino is the best orange county casino party company in Southern California. Yeah, we're biased, it's a shameless plug, but we're also right. No one puts on better events than Aces Casino Entertainment. Entertaining dealers, casino-quality equipment and professional event staff.
5.here are some pretty fine shows appearing on TV right now... Our faves? We'll go with Pawn Stars (LOVE the Old Man), 48 Hours Mystery, Winter Wipeout (John, Jon and Jill are too funny), Damages (Damn, that Glenn Close is EVIL), and The First 48. Hey, we may be the orange county casino party giant, but we don't have a TV Guide. Look 'em up, you'll be glad you did. Oh, plus, The Amazing Race returns on Feb. 20. LOVE "The Amazing Race." Wish I could be on that, but my wife'd kill me 20 minutes after the race started. I'm a crappy designated navigator.
