So I was in Vegas for the Padres-Dodger's series. It was my friend's B-day celebration, and he organized the whole thing (and paid for the rooms, so I can't complain too much), but he did something absolutely vile, my assigned roommate was a Dodger's fan. What made it even worse was that the whole weekend, he wore his blue Dodger's hat everywhere. While he seemed like a good guy, he was still was a dip s**t, didn't even grow up in LA, he just likes the Dodger's (That is like being a Duke fan for no reason, just speaks a lot of your lack of character). He even tried to 'dead horse" me one night, but I was able to defend myself and pee in his hat.
While at the Hard Rock on Friday night, a bunch of Padre's fans got together to watch the last few innings of the game. Well I guess we were making a lot of noise, because next thing I know, Luke Walton (of the LA. Lakers) was standing with us. He is a huge Padre fans, and we B.S. with him for a while until he had to give some attentions to his "fan club". The next day we ran in Luke again in the cab line, until Richard Jefferson started to yell at him that he got them a Limo. I think they should change the line to 'Party Like Luke Walton', because I want to roll like that.
Didn't know this, but it turns out in Vegas, they have these places where you can place wagers on sporting events. What a novel idea. They call them "sports books", and there are some people at these "sports books", who actually make a living off of these little wagers. Somehow I accidently found myself in one of these sports books at the Mirage and talked baseball with one of these proffesionals. He stated that the Padres are clearly the "class" of the NL, and that the proffessionals have been making a killing off of them because they don't get the respect they deserved and the line is always skewed. This weekend for the Dodgers series the Padres got a -105 line, which is Vegas's way of saying (we don't have any idea), the proffessionals loaded up on this bet on Friday night, but stayed away from it on Saturday.
Good to win another series, and overall I like the Bradely trade, worse case we get rid of him and pick a compensation pick in the draft.
