Vegas was great. The rooms at the Wynn are the stuff of legend. Robes, slippers, huge bathroom with a giant tub — when the maid comes to turn down your sheets, she leaves a little towel thingee on the floor … I finally realized that it was for your feet so nothing dirty gets into your incredibly comfy bed. Now, that’s fancy! Everything about this hotel was fantastic.

I don’t want to talk about the gambling. I bet the house on Southern Miss to beat Arkansas State by 15 points. Here’s the final score. The level of play from both teams was a sad indictment of the over-promulgation of bowl games.

I’ll probably be blogging lightly for the next few days. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas.
