Explain This To Me

I'm a big boxing fan. Tonight, there was a pay-per-view fight between Oscar de la Hoya and Ricardo Mayorga. I could have stayed home and purchased the bout for $49.99. But I said; "Hell No!" Those stinkin' cable bastards ain't getting another dime outta me!!!

So, off I went. Mohegan Sun Casino. They always show the pay-per-views. Except tonight. Satellite feed was messed up. They couldn't get the fight. I guess $100 million a month in slot revenues alone don't buy what it used to.

So, on the road I go. Eight miles northeast to Foxwoods. Luckily, their satellite is working fine. I see the fight. Oscar is precision sharp, surgical, destroys Mayorga. Wins every round until the fight is called. Complete destruction. There is much rejoicing.

I save the $49.99... except...

Between the two casinos and the beer, and the food and the beer and the mother's day gift I bought and the beer and the fine high quality cigar I bought on impulse, and a little more beer... I spend over $100. In two casinos. Without touching a card, a slot or a pair of dice. Over $100 to save $49.99.

W T F?!?!?!?

Please, someone, explain how I won?

Mother Love Bone guided me home:

You ever heard the story of Mr. Faded Glory?
Say he who rides a pony must someday fall
Talkin' to my alter, life is what you make it
And if you make it death well rest your soul away
Away, away, yeah child

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

You were in the company of other people instead of home all alone!

Well, there is that. But, I'm never really "home alone." I always have thoughts of you to keep me company!

Testing, 1 2 3... is this thing on? It's so sad. You're far too young for this level of senility!

At least you didn't spend 2 hours watching a stupid Tom Cruise movie.

Not staying at home and shelling out 49.99 for pay-per-view....$0.00

Going to the casino's...having beer...food...having beer...watching the fight...having beer...splurging on a fine quality cigar....having beer....$100.00

Buying your mother a Mother's Day gift (beer or the cigar?)......Priceless..!

The question is, doc....did you have a good time..?

docdirk replies on 5/7/2006 7:19 pm:
Yes, it was a good time. Hard Rock sells a mean beef quesadilla with mango/pineapple salsa. And, as an Oscar fan, it was all good.

BTW, mom would insist on BOTH the beer and cigar!!! LOL!!

Ummmmm ... what about sharing in the comraderie of all the other boxing fans at the casino, instead of sitting home alone with a bag of chips and a six pack. The casino sounds more fun to me.
