The First Meal and Gambling of 2008

Ah London… where French Fries are “chips” and a large is a medium… our first meal of 2008 consisted of a McDonald’s double cheeseburger, chips and a large coke.

Then, we attended a professional “football” game at Arsenal Stadium, home of the London Arsenal, also known lovingly as the “Gunners”. There, we placed a bet of several quid that Arsenal would win, and having won, were paid a handsome prize — enough money to catch the Tube back to our hotel.

GIKKU.COM has lost unprecedented amounts of money to large corporate casinos in Las Vegas this time around. However, the members of GIKKU are also proud to report that a good time was had by all.

It started with In-n-Out Hamburgers


Followed by losing money.

Followed by morning.


Followed by additional losing money.

Followed by playing Wii Tennis at the local Best Buy.


Ben would like to add that we also ate fine steaks and excellent mini donuts.

Apparently, calls to this law firm in Chicago were up quite a bit after this billboard ran.

Behold. We bet on the Red Sox to beat the Angels yesterday by 1.5 runs (which means they have to win by 2). Thanks to David Ortiz, we won.

And that is just a portion of what is happening in the amazing world of gambling at GIKKU.COM.

Ben and I arrived last night in LAS VEGAS, after being delayed for 2 hours in Boston, which we spent eating Johnny Rockets hamburgers and reading US Magazine. We finally got into Vegas and unfortunately, ALLEN had not included us on the hotel reservation, so we were forced to wander aimlessly through the lobby of the Venetian, toting our bags like dead animals.

Ben urged me to go play WheelWinners (Wheel of Fortune slot machine), which I knew was a sucker bet but Ben insisted. We started feeding the machine 20’s when all of a sudden, I won $400.00.

“That could only happen to you Mike,” Ben said, continuing to feed his machine 20s.

At that moment, Ben won $500.00.

We cashed out and went to the bar, trying to decide if we should send a limo for Allen.

We decided not to.
