21

I'm officially joining card-counters anonymous. I'm serious, Spirit Mountain here I come. Can it honestly be that hard? I've still got the mnemonic device in my head. Actually, I know that it's a lot harder than it looks but the movie "21" based loosely on the book, "Bringing Down the House," was very entertaining. Had it not been true I don't know if it would have had the same impact because it lacks much of the draw of other casino movies like Oceans Eleven. But, the simple fact that some college students from MIT made hundreds of thousands of dollars doing something that wasn't even illegal was pretty impressive. I think I've told you enough about the movie without ruining it. Apparently some thought the film should have cast more Asian-Americans as the actual MIT Blackjack team was primarily Asian-American. It didn't get the craziest reviews but like I said the fact that it's based on a true story kept my attention. So...go see the movie and then see if you want to join me!

    Glad to hear a positive review. A slightly opinionated person I know said it was terrible, unless you like 1 1/2 hour introductions to what is going on.

    WTG Rick on talking to Rick for 2 hours. Stud!
