Yeppers- we were watching the dancing water show at the Bellagio, and I turned around to see him. I almost died laughing. Gave him $1 for that photo, then I HAD to talk to him to determine his sanity.
He seemed as regular as any of you guys that I know.
Said he usually works at the old strip, takes about 3-5 Rochambeau's a night, then has to go lay down the next day. Asked if anyone with martial arts training had come at him, yes, and after that he had to lay down for 2-3 days. Didn't ask if he made folks take off their shoes, or if anyone with steeltoes had swung at him.
Can't tell youn's how glad we are to be home. Plus, Las Vegas kicked me in the balls via my wallet. OUCH. We stayed the last 2 days out in Laughlin NV visiting friends, liked it a lot more out there. Checked out Oatman AZ, had fun watching the burros there, fun little town.
Saw craziness randomly and regularly in Vegas, doubt I'll evaaaar go back. Breathe there and they'll take money for it!
There was a show named Top Shot. Snipers, swat, trick shooters, etc. Six minutes of fun shooting, twenty minutes of High school girls being mean.
I enjoyed the competition when the sniping was with crossbow or breaking sugar-glass window panes with a cowboy Colt while sliding down a zip line in a harness. Lighting kitchen matches with a muzzle loading rifle and other stunts unfortunately didn't balance the mean girls portion where Seals and Sheriffs formed cliques to make the Air Force Security guys cry.
Hopefully the Chopper show will be on cable only so I'll never see it.
