See, Reno. "The Biggest Little City in the World". Maybe that's an overstatement, biggest little city in the world. But still, Reno is like Las Vegas not on steroids. Vegas = steroids. Reno = unsteroids.
We pulled into Reno sometime around 9pm Friday evening. Dumped our stuff off at the hotel then headed down to scope out the gambling scene. And you know what, there was a gambling scene. Smoking included. I forgot about it being legal to smoke in the casino. Gross! Just so you know, at one point I was up $15 from where I started. Then the "what-if, maybe" kicked in and I kept going. I ended up leaving down $40. Oops.
Saturday afternoon was the football game. First we had breakfast. Then I bought a Wolf Pack long sleeve hoodie. Had to fit in you know. Collin Kaepernick, #10, starting quarterback, future NFL star!
The Wolf Pack won! 70 to 45, or was it 35. Regardless, they beat Idaho. Collin ran in 4 or 5 of the touchdowns. See that poof of smoke? Yea, that cannon would go off everytime Nevada scored. You'd think I would have gotten used to it. But no, everytime I jumped. (Picture of Collin making touchdown.)
Post game photo ops. Devon and myself. We were waiting for Collin to come out of the locker room.
George and Devon. Such a cute picture if I say so myself.
After the game we had pizza and wings at Collin's courtesy of Devon's parents. Then we went back to the hotel/casino to see if we/I could win some of my money back. No such luck. Oh well, $40 towards a weekend of entertainment isn't too shabby.
We left for home around 9:30/10ish the next morning and were home by 1:30ish. All in all a good weekend away.
