A cellphone video clip shows the snow cones on the bathroom floor, next to a stall being used by the vendor. According to Ch. 2, the video was taken by a person who attended Kansas City’s 6-5 victory against the Astros on Monday at Minute Maid. Astros president Reid Ryan said in a statement the organization was notified Monday by ARAMARK, who handles the stadium’s food services, about the incident and the third-party employee was immediately terminated.
Oh, and just in case you missed the best line of the story, it would have to come from newly-promoted team GM Reid Ryan (son of Angels' pitcher Nolan Ryan), who let off this gem -- “This isolated incident was a clear violation of our food safety practices and is not reflective of our standards,” Ryan said.
Gee, we sure hope so. Too late, though, Reid -- I'll never look at another sno-cone the same way, ever again. Oh, and for those of you that know we go the extra mile to cover these stories, here is the actual cell-phone footage of the "incident." You KNOW we'd find it.
If you know ANYTHING about this Orange county casino night party company at all, you KNOW that the crew here at Aces Casino LOVES reality TV. All KINDS of it. Unfortunately, as you may have heard, there are some "reality TV" shows that play fast and loose with the term, "Reality." This appears to be the case with a fairly new show on the satellite dish called "Mystery Diners." We first caught wind of a possible shark-jumping on this show when we saw a recent clip of "Mystery Diners," and thought the people on that show acted a little, shall we say, "wooden." (They can't act.)
UPDATE -- Checkmate. The show is fully scripted. One of our team remembered Deenie Castleberry at an event we did about one year ago. It turns out that she's the same "Dee Dee" that appears as a faux-family member in the Mystery Diners Episode entitled "All In The Family." Talked to her yesterday, she's "Dee Dee." Oh, and she had one other revelation -- Another acquaintance of ours, actor Tommy O'Brien (Find him at his IMDB.com link provided) appeared as a thief in a year 3, episode 4 broadcast entitled, "Catch of the Day." We're sooooo disappointed. Tommy and Deenie are pretty good in the show, though. Hope it helps their careers.
Funny thing... IMDB and the "Diners" keep deleting our pictures of the two "stars" we've outed, but there's no deleting Tommy O;Brian's appearance credit on his bio as "The Thief." That's "Game Over," Food Network. Come clean now, or else we send in Samy and Amy B., and you don't want THAT.
First off, I have to admit that I never saw the billboard that everyone is yakking about, which (I'm told) towers over the 405 freeway near Culver City, but I sure as Hades had heard of all the ruckus. Well, here are the pics and vids, judge for yourself...

You KNOW we always have an extra vid for those of you that can't get enough. Let's lighten things up with a little guy that was spotted in-between innings at a recent Atlanta Braves home game. This is too funny.... He's got the moves....
