    Biggest Drinkers: Cowboys or Brits?

    Ok, so I had the pleasure (not sure if that is right word) of visiting Las Vegas for the first time this weekend. There were two large events going on simultaneously while I was there:
    1. There is a super hyped boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Ricky Hatton. Ricky is from England, and there were hundreds of Brits filling the casinos, drinking heavily, standing on the tables, and singing
    2. The National Finals Rodeo was taking place. There were hundreds of cowboys with hats, boots, cigars and beer!

    So I don't know that we could have chosen a better group to bring to Vegas for a drinking duel, and that we had!

    Me... well, I was there for the second largest ballroom dance event in the USA. We won a trophy. But can you imagine us walking through casino in our dance costumes in the company of singing Brits and hootin and hollerin cowboys?

    Congratulations to your win.

    Well. I think both of those groups were equally hung over the next day

    Congratulations on your trophy David. Always steer clear of boozy Brits. They will be drowning their sorrows today though as I have just heard Ricky Hatton lost the fight. Shows how much I know about boxing because I thought he would win it.
    There are three kinds of men:
    The ones that learn by reading.
    The few who learn by observation.
    The rest of us have to pee on the electric fence.

    Hey, thanks everyone. I'll try to post some videos of our dancing soon. We are getting higher in the ranks, but still hope to get better.

    I'll bet, and after some discussion with my wife, we decided it was the Brits that win the award.
