That’s my record on wine purchases from Alsace (France, but really it’s Germany), which isn’t just my favorite region …. it’s maybe the most perfect place on the face of the earth when it comes to cuisine, wine, lifestyle, politics, culture, and everything and anything that is worth living in life. Socialism. Butter. Wine. Butter. Battle of the Bulge. Butter. Cremants. Butter. French women. German precision. —That’s Alsace.
Right now, the Bellagio is chopping down the trees and destroying the shady park area on the sidewalk in front of the water fountains to make way for a car race and asshole-fest that lasts a day. Those trees were first planted 25 years ago. I know, because I was there for the night of the grand opening, in October 1998.
Today, they’re tearing out trees to make way for temporary grandstands for the rich fucks who will blow thousands of dollars on race tickets, money which goes straight to F1 — all of which flows out of Las Vegas.
Forty five trees will be sawed down to make way for a grotesque monstrosity that will be up for roughly four days.
This coming NFL season, I’ll be doing some things differently on my football betting activities.
Each week, I’ll post analysis and picks on as many games as best I can. I’ve been doing this for 10+ years here at my website. I plan to continue this tradition.
