WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER

I get it. It is time to calm down about #Clemson. No it isn’t. But so as not to contribute to the Great Clemson Nation being stigmatized as a bunch of obnoxious ungracious winners, I will make this one the last one….for a while. I would also like to note that most people in the Great Clemson Nation could give a rat’s ass about what the rest of the college football world thinks of them. I’m one of them, this forum notwithstanding.

A Few Las Vegas Limericks – #4

by Joel Kravitz

As I said before, I am not a sports bettor except when I am in Las Vegas. This is why. I can’t take it if there is a reversal of fortune on a meaningless play or a bounce of ball. And that stuff happens all the time…AND it always happens to me.

A Few Las Vegas Limericks – #2 & #3

by Joel Kravitz

I am not a gambler. A couple trips to the track and an annual buddy trip to Vegas. That’s it. I am not a sports gambler except when I’m in Vegas. I like to shoot craps but it is an easy come (no pun intended) easier go game with large minimum bets and lots of dice rolls per hour. That is too much disaster exposure for me. I like the horses. You can make small bets and there is twenty minutes between races.  Though there are lots of tracks going at the same time so you can go as nuts as you want.

A Few Las Vegas Limericks – #1

by Joel Kravitz

This post comes after three days in Las Vegas. I was with two of my closest friends and we had a blast though there were no gambling winners amongst us. We spent our days playing horses, went to a couple of shows at night and watched more than enough sports on television. And, of course, we played too many slot machines (though I was ahead on them until I dumped a last $100 in one late Saturday night) and we had the “mandatory” and “legendary” dinner buffet at Bellagio, who humbly calls it the world’s best buffet. More on that shortly. Certainly, such activities are rife with material for limericks and some got written.

A Smashburger Vegas Advice Twitter Contest Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

As a writer of limericks and four liners, I have had some success in contests that require that the entrant write something in a limited number of words. I have won several radio contests and some pretty cool prizes that went with them. I won a “Mother’s Day Contest” for Mimi and when they called to tell her where to pick up her prize she was blown away. So I like these kind of contests and enter when I see them. This is the first in a while.
