Las Vegas

The Traveling Mushroom made it to 'Sin City' and also known as the adult playground.  Smack in the middle of the dessert this city lives up to all of its nicknames.  This was a special trip that had a main purpose of a Pan/Am hockey tournament.  After playing our 2nd game of the tournament early Saturday morning, the team went back to the hotel to drink a little and grab something to eat by the pool before our evening game.  By the time we made it back to our second game (3rd in the tournament) half of our team was a bit inebriated but luckily so was half of our opposing team.  It was a good time as the goalie from each team took the opening face-off.  In between 2nd and 3rd period, as we gathered by our bench to discuss strategy and make adjustments it had become apparent that one of our defensemen had passed out on the bench... sitting up.  We decided to forfeit our bronze medal game due to the fact it was at 9 something Sunday morning and we were all going out that night.

Staying along the strip while going in and out of the casinos but only gambling just a little, the nightlife seemed more fitting than the gambling.  Entering a red carpet event in Paris, it was a pretty nice club that even the infamous Charlie Sheen was there.  We grabbed a V.I.P. booth and partied big and then closed the club down at sometime passed 5am.  Waking up at sometime just before noon it was very smart to not play the 9am game.  Rumor had it that there was a sighting of a Gorilla on our way home from the club the night before but this has been highly debated.  Yes, an inside joke, ha-ha.
