    More majestic than you can imagine. As we speak, they're gouging that shit off the Sistine Chapel's ceiling and preparing to put my visage there in all my mustachioed glory.
    And I will be in Las Vegas.

    When's Vegas? Maybe I can go and tell some stories about Joe in the old days, if you consider the early '00s the old days.

    It's NCAA championship weekend, around March 30-April 2 or thereabouts.

    And maybe I can tell stories about you losing your ass at craps. Quid pro quo, gopher.

    Losing? You mean taking the fuckers for all their worth? Well, OK, maybe not all their worth, but the last time I played in Peoria, I beat those kiddie rapers out of $3,900 with the dice.

    The table was full and this beautiful, beautiful human being rolled for over an hour. The pit bosses were shitting themselves. They ran out of quarters -- OUT OF THEM -- before they could get a fill. They'd drop blacks and you had to give them change.

    By the end of the roll, there were suits everywhere, sweating ballistics. Unfortunately, I was betting conservatively at first, but I'd estimate that the table easily took the place for $100k just on that roll. The guy rolled 11 hard ways and a couple of guys had the max of $250 bet on each, sweeping a cool $2,500 every time doubles came up.

    I'll give you a lesson if I'm not covering basketball by then.

    Finally, finally, finally got the Esquire in the mail today. Jones pegged Nye's to a tee, even the Clapp Towers. He wasn't kidding about the shitter that had only a passing acquaintance with closing.
