Ballin at the Casino

As I was leaving the body shop I was filled with nothing but sadness. My truck had been the victim of an accident and there was nothing I could do. From the body shop my father and I made our way to Hertz rental car so I could get my rental car set up. When I arrived to Hertz the sales associate tried to help lift my spirits by hooking me up with a 2010 Infiniti G37 so I could roll in style until my truck was finished.

I pulled off the Hertz lot and man did that engine rumble. It was crazy how instant the throttle response was on that car. It was like once I hit the gas it took off in a hurry. I made it to my house in no time and decided that I needed to do something fun to get my mind off things. I quickly changed and called up my buddies Jordan, Ryan, Cesar and Brian so we could figure out something to do. We all put our heads together and decided it would be a great idea for us to head out to the Casino for a poker tournament so we could make ourselves some money.

We all met up at my place and figured it would make the most sense for me to drive the G37 and for Jordan to drive his Mitsubishi EVO 8 so we could get to the casino as soon as possible. We took off from my place and headed towards the casino at a high rate of speed. I must say the G37 handled amazingly especially at high rates of speed. We arrived at the casino and parked our cars in record time. I locked my sleek G37 and made my way inside the casino.

Once we made our way inside the casino we walked over to the poker registration and registered ourselves for some sweet poker playing action. I took my seat at the table and began playing. The first couple of hands seemed like luck was on my side, however later on my luck turned sour. Once I was at the break even point I decided that it made the most sense for me to pull myself off of the table and leave with the same amount I came in with.

I pulled off the table and went to cash my chips in. By the time I cashed my chips in the other boys were ready to go as well. We made our way from the casino to the parking lot and headed home. The drive home was just as short as the drive there and once I got home I crashed on in my bed. Tonight wasn’t a big winning night, but it was a fun night and it got my mind off things.
