Shabbat Shalom from Las Vegas, where I’m celebrating an important birthday of one of my best friends. I feel like I need a residence out here; I find myself in the desert no less than five times per year. It was a rough week in football for me. The Gators got dominated. The Dolphins got destroyed. And I did not make the playoffs in either of my two fantasy football leagues (neither of which had a cheap buy-in). Oh well. There’s always next year! Quick thanks to Play Luck Free 4000+ Slots for keeping the lights on this week.
