This time I’m staying at Mandalay Bay. Great place. I’d only visited here a couple of times before, never stayed. On one occasion, I saw my former girlfriend, Sandhal Bergman when she starred in the play Chicago. On another, I produced a show for Red Development starring J. J. Walker at House of Blues. The rooms are decent, there’s lots to do, it’s kept up well and there are good quality crowds.
And there are some fantastic rock bands playing nightly all over the casino.
It’s a very large, and fairly active casino. Another feature is a fun choice of pools, and if you come for a visit, you have to check out the shark reef! Well done, guys.
It was about 102 degrees today, clear and dry. My best gal pal Gina from California is here with me, sweet lady, and we are enjoying a relaxing three days and nights.
Now the big news….drum roll…what did I tell you about the Chumps?
I mean Chiefs, of course. They have talent, but no leadership and no culture of winning. We already went over this. In other words, you can count on losses to teams better than the Chiefs almost every time out. Sure, they may have an occasional win, like Green Bay last year, but generally uh, no.
I’ll give the Chumps, I mean Chiefs, credit.
They played well on offense for the first half and had me nervous. I had Atlanta even with the money line, and my really big bet was this game. I did the same thing against KC last year with the under and won.
Boy Matt “THE FRANCHISE” Cassel had the best first half of his Chiefs career (and his last season here will be this one). Good job, Matt. We have weapons – I don’t need to name them – you saw it. But the Falcons are superior and have a much better quarterback in Matt Ryan.
This was practically the same game MU played and lost last night to Georgia.
Both games ended in blow outs, but were well played and close for a half or more. Again, MU has no history of winning big games, so their legacy of losing the big ones continues.
There were a few upsets, but hey, it was upset Sunday. Almost every game was an upset except for KC losing, New England winning, Houston winning over Miami, and the Jets looking very good in their win.
The rest of the games were too close to call or upsets.
The most impressive upset was WASHINGTON with RG 3.
WOW! Is he great or what?
He thumped the Saints. All the rookie quarterbacks looked good or outstanding, even in some of their losses. It’s the new passing league NFL and rookies get great fast.
Next year the Chiefs will start a rookie quarterback but it may be too late for some outstanding players like Derrick Johnson, Jamaal Charles and D-Bowe. The rookie will take at least two years to be post season sharp. So bye-bye to many of the good vets on this team.
Identify one or two games and jump on those games ONLY.
College is easier the first four weeks or so, as are mismatches. But I think you’ve seen enough of how I do things to figure out that, hey, this guy is very good.
Year after year.
