Live (Tape Delay) From Vegas: Adam Morrison at the Poker Table

The Big Boys have already done their Vegas wrap-ups (plus read Ivan Carter's must-read here). Now, we bring you Vegas, from longtime Bog reader Ajay.

Before I get to that, I will be giving away more free (Hibachi-themed) posters at some point today, so if you weren't already clicking once per minute, you'd better start. (I got a look at some readership numbers yesterday, and I think my crass attempts to make people click for posters actually worked, so I can't give up now, plus last night was poster night.) I also have two Wizards wigs (woulda been three, but I gave one to Steve Buckhantz. No lie.)

Also, you still have almost three hours to try to win Reader Nancy's free tix to tomorrow night's Wizards game. Don't give up yet.

Anyhow, Reader Ajay's slightly edited report. I've never met him, so I guess judge for yourself whether you want to take his word:

Where to start man, basically it was just a [bleep] everywhere. I have never seen that much booty ANYWHERE in my life. It was crazy. There were a bunch of ex-NBA ballers at Mandalay Bay, many of whom I could not recognize but could tell they were ballers. Dominique was there. Took a pic of my friend with him. Interestingly enough, he was wearing official Hawks gear, as weird as that is. Ran into Cameron Diaz, and Adam Morrison on the poker table. The LOUDEST player I've ever seen (heard?). He just kept yelling maniacally every time the flop was about to be dealt. And at people, when he was losing. (In a funny way though.) Pretty down to Earth cat though. He just had an insane stack of hundreds right in front of him, and would just keep buying in. He sucked, but you could tell he was just having a good time and was a cool dude.

Also I forgot to mention, every outdoor part of the strip smelt like marijuana. Every part. Literally. I can't emphasize that enough. Along with all the booty. Those are two definite things that stood out.

Thank you for posting in two paragraphs what it took Bill Simmons needed 8,000 words and 40 "LOOK AT ME I KNOW DRUG USERS AND WAS ONCE AT A PARTY WITH WEED, I'M STILL YOUNG AND RELEVANT" references to say.

Any word if Adam Morrison just wandered into the middle of the gaming floor sobbing like a little girl after he blew a wad of cash?

Hey Dan!

Thanks for the plug. I'm taking my judging job very serious here, and I will have runner-up prizes. There are too many good entries (and too many leftover game posters) not to go there . . . . So hopefully that will quell the crushing disappointment of so many great entries and only one set of tickets.

Wow, you've got some crazy readers, Dan! I'm not the ONLY one!! LOL.

Thanks again for the great DeShawn gossip.

Do I get a Hibachi themed poster for my ultra brief Vegas recap?
