Sin City

Ive been recording this new show on the Travel Channel called Bert the Conqueror. This guy (named Bert) travels across the nation and visits the best and coolest theme parks.

One of Bert's first shows was about Las Vegas. More specifically, the Stratosphere.

The Stratosphere is the tallest observation tower, and the 5th tallest structure in the United States at 1149ft. tall. AND it is the tallest structure in Las Vegas.

What do you do when you have the tallest structure in Las Vegas and a very crazy, insane imagination???


First.. there is the more tame one out of the group. The Bigshot.

It is pretty much like the Superman ride at Six Flags Over Texas, except it's on top of a giant tower. I give this one about a 5 on the Ricky WILL pee on himself scale.

Then, there is X-Scream.

This ride is a giant see-saw. Watch the video. I give this one an 8.5 on the Ricky WILL pee on himself scale.

THEN, there is Insanity!

Im not bad about heights. But I hate spinning. So now.. If i am spinning 900 some odd feet in the air, im hating life. Look at that thing! (Are you looking, or did you turn away like I did?)
Ricky WILL pee on himself scale = 9.9

Now, for the granddaddy of them all...

The Las Vegas SkyJump.

Think of it as Skydiving minus the parachute, or bungee jumping minus the bungee.

You (The customer) have to jump off of that blue ledge and then you go straight down...
Apparently it is safe, but I dont know if I could ever bring myself to do it.  VIDEO!

I definitely give this one a 16 on my stupid made up scale.

Cant wait to go to Vegas... and watch other people do this crazy stuff.

My new stripper name...

Chik-Fil-A is killin the fast food game right now!!

Just left the new Chicken Fil A in Montgomery Plaza and it was the best experience ive ever had in a fast food restaurant. I was greeted by all 37 people behind the counter and Jerry Nell even filled my drink up for me. Loved every minute of it. If you're ever in the area, make sure you check it out. And to Mickey D's...

Step your game up bustas.

I watched a tribute to Greg Giraldo this weekend and they talked a bit about this. Had to post.

Very Interesting

Back in the days of my game show glory, I was asked a question about the legalization of marijuana. I answered that it SHOULD be legalized, but regulated in the same way as alcohol.

I watched this gem of a documentary over the weekend and it REALLY got me thinking.

The premise of the movie is simple. And stolen.

He would not use marijuana for 30 days. Then he would use marijana continuously for 30 days. During the 30 day periods he would take a series of tests to see how much better or worse he would do.

It was more informative than I was expecting. And it made me think a lot about why marijuana is illegal, but we still sell alcohol which does WAY more damage??

Anyways, check it out. You might learn a little something.

Man, oh man.

What do you get when you have 5 guys, whose ladies are all bridesmaids in a wedding, and the guys dont have to do anything but hang out and party?

Lamp shade.  
Spilled beer.

Broken foot.

Jon Padro: "Greg and I went looking for a gas station at like 430 in the morning, got lost, ended up at one 2 1/2 miles away, made some new friends, got an uncomfortably long ride back and hung out with a canuk outside...we were gone for like an hour and a half and all the while greg was in nothing but silk dress socks!"

This weekend was a success.

Matt and Megan

Congrats again to Matt and Megan (who probably wont ever see this) who tied the knot a.k.a jumped the broom a.k.a. got hitched this past Saturday. It was tons upon tons of fun and appreciate all that they and their families did for us!

Dont they look so happy????

Charlie Sheen

First off, let me say that Charlie Sheen is... He's... Uhhhhh.....

There are a few actors that I really admire. There's Jamie Foxx, who is great at anything he does. Then there is the Great One; The People's Champ; The Trailblazin, Eyebrow Raisin; Jabroni beatin, Pie eatin, most electrifying man in sports entertainment, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

And then there's Charlie. Oh Charlie. I dont even know where to begin.

Major League is one of my all-time favorite movies. Anytime this man is on tv, im watching it. I've loved all of his movies and tv shows (Spin City and Two and a Half Men).

This was before all the crazyness.

Now, Mr. Estevez is giving us some of the best, nuttiest, wackiest television we have ever seen. Yeah people are worried and blah blah blah. He's passing his drug tests live on tv. So there is some proof.

Point is, he's crazy. And as long as the media keeps interviewing him, he is gonna get crazier and crazier.

But I absolutely love it. Da End.

The Big Story of the Week...

I dont know if you guys have been watching the news lately, but if you havent heard...

Miley Cyrus hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend.

Her performance was... eh. I give her a 6 out of 10.

As far as her looks, I give her a 10. A freakin 10.

Here's a clip of her best sketch of the night.


Welp... People have been asking me, "What happened to your blog? Did you give it up?"

Apparently, I got my days wrong for Lent. So I figured I would make my great, triumphant return on Ash Wednesday.

Welcome me back. Gracias. :)
