I find your George Armstrong Custer reference Troubling and interesting at the same time. I am hoping that was not a shot across the tribes bow.

[QUOTE=Carcounter] Very hard to find a vp game today where your expected advantage is over 100% without a Royal or AWAK. Maybe they exist in LV, but certainly not in AC. Hope Mickey Crimm is alive and well. I don't check other forums regularly, but he had the best stories of plays he found where he had that advantage. My last 3 visits to AC (Borgata) have been horrible and what was once a healthy profit for the year is now down to just under 3K. Think it is time to slow down for a whiole

Mickey is alive, drinking as much as ever, and sharing stories on another forum, when he's not putting down perceived enemies with language that would make most rappers blush. [/QUOTE]

Last I heard, 100+ days sober.

I excuse much of his ramblings and insults as just him being drunk. IF he is writing this Shiite sober, he's an even poorer excuse of a human than I thought.

To the non golfers out there this will mean nothing. Today i decided to play golf instead of going to Borgata for my usual Friday session. Since I'm on a 3 game losing streak at vp, made sense. On my county course in Millstone NJ, had the second eagle in my life.on a long par 4 into the wind, I hit a nice drive, maybe 235 which is my limit at 65yrs old and 165 lbs. Had 175 left, hit my hybrid square and it never left the flag. Didn't see it go in as I was looking into the sun. Got up to the green and didn't see my ball. Went to the cup and there it was. Very nice, but I'll still take a 2k or 4K royal over that any time 1k I'm not that sure. Congratulations on the eagle. They are, as all us semi- competent golfers know, a rare breed indeed.

I have to confess that I'm not sure which is the better story - your eagle, or the story I related in my May 6 post about the gentleman who had his golf game rained out, went to Seneca Niagara instead, and while playing 5 line 50c triple double bonus, was dealt the four aces with a kicker for a $10000 payout.

On a somewhat negative note, you should be prepared to lose at least 15-20 yards off your drives over the next ten years, assuming you keep playing golf until you're 75.

New equipment can help a little. What I didn't say was that I lost that titeist in the water on the very next hole.
