Or Mike after a Super Bowl safety.

No good bridges in LV you will have to settle for the Stratosphere.

Fortunately I missed them bad years. But you may need to make room if it happens again.

The Hoover Dam bridge would be the perfect spot.

Show some balls and jump off the nearby Tillman bridge.

That's what I meant. I'm still not sure what to call it. The Mike O'Callaghan -- Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge is quite a mouthful.

Ah, sorry for that then. Sounded like you meant just the dam. I would just call it the Tillman Bridge. Bridge names that are too long get shortened when everyone knows what they are talking about. You can trust me on that. They renamed 3 here and I still use the old names.

I like the Stratosphere idea. But I think you should exit from one of the rides in a dramatic fashion.

Wiggle out of the restraints. Tip your top hat, and wave your cane and step into the great beyond.

The rest of the riders will be telling the story for a long time.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

How big of a favorite does it have to be to be classified a bridge jumper? I would say around 15:1 favorite.

I think the no safety qualifies and that is around 8 to 1.

In case you guys need more information as to why this is a great bet at 5% return let me add this

Florida bred horses are usually rats.... they usually can not race with other horses outside of Florida. And you would NEVER expect a Florida bred three year old filly to race aged mares in a stakes race.... this one did in Lexington last month and as the only three year old in the race she won easily for her first start for the new owners and trainer.

here is the race where she beat up on the best aged mares in North America at THE RED MILE

I'm all for thinking outside the box but in this case it's Wizard of Vegas and gambling so you must keep in spirit with that theme IMO. The Stratosphere IS the correct choice.
