Getting ready for practice session

We made it!!! Keith and I landed around 9:00 PST last night, jumped in our Dodge Caliber, and proceeded to the Sam's Town Casino and Hotel. The last time I was in this casino was 1991 when we bowled in the Collegiate Christmas Tournament at Showboat and Sam's Town. It was a shithole back then. The outside looks similar, but the inside has been totally remodeled. The courtyard area looks a lot like the Gaylord Hotel in Grapevine, TX. Our room faces the courtyard, and it's really cool-looking. Nothing exciting to report so far. We went down to the bowling center, watched a trio league bowl for 5 minutes, then grabbed some late supper around 11:00 at the TGIFriday's that is inside the casino.

I slept like crap last night. I finally fell asleep around 12:30am, and woke up about 30 times. I ended up getting out of bed at 5:45 this morning and hitting the shower. Between finding out the heater was on at 2am (it was roasting my peanuts), Keith snoring like an 18" Poulan cutting through a 40-year old oak tree, and my brain using the back of my eyelids as a projection screen, let's just say I may need a little nappy after Keith bowls at 10am. But the movie that my brain was showing was really good. I was bowling in the High Roller, and I was kicking ass. I've never proclaimed my talents as a psychic, but you never know...

I will check in after the practice session. I will definitely be using my newly-acquired wireless internet connection that cost me $29.97 for 3 days. You gotta love free enterprise!
