Cocktails? Drinks? Vicodin?

The battle of Terry Watanabe vs Harrah's spilled onto CNN's Issues With Jane Velez-Mitchell yesterday. Our dear friend Dr. Dave Schwartz managed to squeeze his huge intellect into one of those square talk boxes on the screen. I can't wait to ask him how it felt to be Brady Bunch'ed next time I see him. Way to go Dave702!

Mr. Watanabe is accusing Harrah's Entertainment of lubing up his purse strings with bottles and bottles of vodka and gift boxes filled with Lortab (hydrocodone + acetaminophen, aka Vicodin) At his worst, Watanabe lost up to $5 million bucks at the tables a day. Holy crap! It really is a bleepload of money!

That's one helluva hair helmet JVM is sporting in the intro. Yikes!



Comments & Discussion:

Imagine this: you're listening to people who you can't see and don't know arguing loudly in the next room, and every now and then one of them shouts over and asks for your opinion.

Always interesting to see how the media and mainstream America react to these common Vegas issues.

They conveniently omit that even assuming Watanabe was a degenerate gambler and overly drunk, his argument loses all validity once he goes home for several weeks (presumably sobering up) and still comes back. I wouldn't be suprised if he was also "plied" with some of the same women Tiger was with.

Wait a minute, I think I need to sue Harrahs as well. I had a mouth full of XTC putting $100'S in the high limit slots in the palace casino......they made me do it.
