A little gambling is fun when you're with me (I love it)

Vegas, baby?

Vegas, baby.

We were sitting here talking about all the crazy things that usually happen when we pack up and head out to Sin City for either the NCAA Tourney or Selection Sunday. But now with Gabby on the East Coast and a baby coming we were wondering when the next Vegas trip would be. While Gabby just likes to drink and restaurant hop, the rest of us like to actually gamble. That is what Vegas was made for, right?

So in the meantime while we wait for our next trip we do things. Things like online video poker, video roulette, or video blackjack. Well, one person here likes roulette...

*cough cough*


*cough cough*

Plus it's another great way to pass the time before college hoops starts.

UPDATE: Gabby just said he doesn't see himself being in Vegas anytime before 2012. Forget it then, isn't that when Hollywood says the world's gonna end?

How have you been spending the off season?

Reading about conference reorgs? Players behaving badly? Coaches behaving badly? Thankful that college football is here to bide the time? It's been eventful so far, however nothing will beat the summer of 2008 for off season shenanigans.

As for us will begin posting anew around the beginning of November. We usually post more during the summer and fall but we've been admittedly lazy this time around. And with Gabby welcoming a newborn in December it might be a little chaotic around here right at the start of the season.

Two more months to go. Just hang on.

Calipari is laughing

Yes, that is life...

Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl has been a very busy bee this off-season. Yesterday he held a press conference to finally talk about what he has been doing:

1) Lying to NCAA investigators
2) Lying to NCAA investigators with the intent to hide illegal recruiting activities he and his staff were engaged in
3) Covering up lying to NCAA investigators with the intent to hide illegal recruiting activities he and his staff were engaged in

South Carolina Representative Joe Wilson had had some choice words for Pearl in light of these finding. Ultimately the hammer came down on Pearl with a one year recruiting ban for the Vols coach. In addition he has been fined $1.5 million which works out to about a $300,000 per year salary deduction on the life of his contract with Tennessee.

Some feel Pearl should be fired. Some are wondering why the hell not? We feel his 126-46 record may have something to do with that. Good job, coach!
