Using the Florida tag is a dead giveaway.

I guess they they'll ban card counting the way they banned their ME counting COVID victims.

Maybe that will make them profit.

Once they get moving they can haul ass.

I can envision little jockeys with scuba.

Dog racing is awful.

There is a popular dive bar across the street that allows smoking throughout and the regulars are generally shiatfaced all day. When that place opens back up (today maybe?) they should start a death count.

Same chips and cards passing back and forth, elbow to elbow seating for long periods of time.  What could possibly go wrong?

I didn't think dog tracks still existed.  That's disappointing.

Fun Fact: The Greyhound Hall of Fame is in Abilene, KS. They have a couple of rescued greyhounds that meet you at the door to say hi and get scratchies.

The real question is: Are the craps tables opening back up?  Due to Covid-19, it's only safe for me to bring my own weighted lucky dice, for y'know, health and stuff.

That's only fair.  So far the virus has been killing blacks out of proportion, but opening up poker rooms should resolve that problem.

This needs to be real, I don't gamble but if I did manatee racing would be my bag.  1,200 pounds of lethargic grey corpulent mass breaking ass for the gold

I thought they finally outlawed dog racing a few years back?
 
2020-05-04 11:16:08 AM

I know of two illegal poker rooms that never shut down, do they count, or would they have had to actually re-open

It was outlawed in the last election.  The law goes into effect on January 1, 2021.

Dollar beers and dollar hot dogs plus smoking and corona virus. Wow, it's only a matter of time which one will get you.

Sweet, I know where my stimulus money is going
