What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

"It's a game where 9-year-olds play 70-year-olds. It's a lot of fun, and you're dripping sweat in 15 minutes."

It's a good thing this was in an article about table tennis. A fella could get the wrong idea.

Ok, I saw the headline. Clicked the link, then got distracted with work stuff while the link was loading (yeah, I really do work stuff - work stuff that slows down lappie) then looked at the link, and was totally confused when I read about ping pong.

No more wine at lunch for me.

I didn't RTFA, but I'm hunched over with imaginary pain just from reading the headline.

"We don't have the prize money or the iconic figure like chess had in Bobby Fischer many years ago."
and if ever there was a sport to model yours after for mainstream commercial success, it's got to be chess.

/likes ping pong. still occasionally the beer pong too.

I'd rather have my balls paddled than have to watch table tennis.

"She hits on both sides," Ryan said admiringly after the match, adding that he "took advantage of her height and made her chase the ball."

This is just screaming for someone to make a comment!

//only one cup of coffee otherwise I would do the honours

I know a chick from Olympic Gardens that could show them a trick or two with those ping-pong balls.

"I know a chick from Olympic Gardens that could show them a trick or two with those ping-pong balls."


Ah, Olympic Gardens. That club is one of the best in Vegas, Cheetas being second.


All-nude ones are ripoffs, basically 2 drink minumum to get in and the drinks are O'Douls.

Article is useless without a...oh never mind there was one. Why do stories about a dog born without a head don't have a pic and a story about table tennis has a pic? Do they think people would have been confused without one?! Do they think we might be thinking about using tables instead of a racket while playing regular tennis?

I just got back from Vegas. We took our friend out for his bachelor party. It cost us about 300 bucks to get his balls turned blue at the strip club. Luckily, the MGM Grand craps tables were very good to us.

Don't tease me with cock and ball torture stories.

Olympic Gardens...ah. The memories. That place ain't just for the fellas...
 
2004-12-21 02:21:09 PM  
Olympic Gardens rules. Got a ride home in the morning from a stripper on the way to pick up her son from daycare. or is it nightcare?

I think I just paid for a new wing at Mandalay Bay a couple weeks ago though.

Paddling your balls - that's a paddlin'.

Did you go in the back room? Everytime I'm at the OG, I see a line of ladies parading into the back room. Always wondered how naughty it got back there. "Touch-N-Go" (you touch, you go) or Greco-Roman wrestling?

I guess I need to learn how to submit a pic.

I didn't go in the back...my friend and I, solo, walked upstairs about 1/2 hour before they closed (upstairs closes at 4am...little did we know). It ended up just us and the strippers...like 10 of them. Hilarious more than really naughty.

I have other friends that have been there at busier times and have partaken of the darkness in the back...and it's a free-for-all. She had two friends that came out saying "I think I just cheated on my boyfriend/husband." Seriously, no holes barred (ahem).

The headline is misleading and the submitter is a tease! I went to the article fully expecting to hear Vegas got a Cricket team.

bigZ: Fark Personals guy needs his balls sniped.

That's a mighty small target for a sniper. I suggest just cutting them off.

Just remember that CBT costs extra.

Come now, why don't they talk about a real underground sport... like juggling.
The World Juggling Federation (WJF) Competition and Convention just ended today in Las Vegas.

we heard about the olympic garden..but the spearmint rhino was recommended heavily. I've never been so scared in my life as I was during the cab ride from Tropicana to the strip club. I swear, they drive those cabs like satan himself is chasing them.
 
2004-12-21 04:21:56 PM  
Oh yeah, don't ever stay at the Tropicana. It has the worst casino and the rooms suck (not that I was in the room that much).
 
2004-12-21 04:32:14 PM  
Good headline. Too bad the story sucked.
 
2004-12-21 06:18:00 PM  
For a second I thought they were talking about my favorite Las Vegas Mistress. Damn.
