They're Giving Away Money at the Mandalay Bay Sports Book!!!
Posted By: TurboPistons This article has been published
7/23/2008
The best sports bet I have ever made was partially alcohol induced, but mostly practicality. We were in Vegas for a double bachelor party and things were getting loose, especially our wallets. I was shelling out money on “various” opportunities and nothing was without regret. “Screw that! If I am going to blow all my money, I am going to do it on something that means something to me!” I marched right down the Mandalay Sports Book and laid down $200 on the Pistons to beat the Lakers in the ’04 championship. I was getting 8-1 odds. Nobody thought the Stones could win, not even my boys! They laughed when I showed them the ticket. I made them laugh even more as I floated around The Lazy River (current driven pool at Mandalay) shouting, “They are giving away money at the Mandalay Sports Book! DDDDDD-troit Basketball!!!!” Well, I was the one laughing in the end; collecting $1800 and, for the first time, not coming away a loser in from Sin City.
