Just got back from yet another weekend out of town. Went to the Lakers-Hornets game in New Orleans, then to Harrah's and Bourbon St. It was surreal to finally see Kobe live, even if we were at the top of the arena. I forgot how much stuff they do at basketball games. We won t-shirts courtesy of our section being represented by the winning mascot in a scooter race. Also, very cool dance/magic act at half. The game was very high scoring 51-42 at half and 101-95 final, but the Hornets did pull even at the end of the 3rd quarter. Not many highlight shots, but lots of indefensible jumpers and post play. Both Kobe and Pay Gasol were over 30, not much help from the second unit, minus Lamar Odom. I'd love to see another game, that isn't best watched on the big screen. If I didn't have numbers memorized, telling players apart would be hard, the trash talking of Kobe from opposing fans not included. ;-)

I haven't gambled as much in ages as I have this month. After the game we went and parked at Harrah's, using Sara's players card to get free parking and drinks. 30 minutes of play is insanely cheap for 24 hours of parking. And there you can order drinks from the slot machines, dangerous, and not so in Biloxi. That was two weeks ago, for Bennett's birthday. Stayed at the Beau Rivage and gambled there and at the Hard Rock, plus dinner at the latter. Also, went outlet shopping. GAP outlets are love. Unfortunately, the concert we wanted to see was sold out. We did do brunch at the buffet on Sunday. I love mimosas and brunch. Crazy weekend, with five of us in one room, but didn't lose too much money.
