BJ Penn Vegas

The pics might be out of order, but maybe not in my mind. That's Dave taking a bite out of a gigantic rib. I didn't know they come out that large, but then again, it's a cow and those are big. We're in Las Vegas. I think by now, we're at the Palazzo Hotel which is near the Wynn, but I ended up calling it the Nguyen. I went to Vegas for less than a day to see BJ Penn fight in UFC 94. The event was grand and fun, even in the nosebleed seats which were going to be four digit money. Last time I was at the Wynn was Murakami's event and I had dinner on Steve Wynn. He said an arms length away, and I swear I thought he was made of wax. He was actually pretty cool.


Johnny Bravo, wait that's not his name... it's Mickey Avalon. That's Mylan on the right, peering out of the car. Yes, only limo rides, buffets, and so on. Vegas is a weird place. Some people have great access to everything. I had that for less than a day.

Lions at the Palazzo. Sucks to be them.

David and Pat from RVCA. If you're rolling in RVCA, then having the Toshiro Mifune hairdo is possible. If you're rolling like David, then wearing an Adidas sweatsuit jacket with a big Vietnam logo on back is possible too. David also walked around with a pillow case with a hand drawn $ sign on it everywhere.

Bets anyone? I lost on BJ Penn, but won on Karo Parisyan.

Part of a buffet at the Wynn. People say that it's the best buffet in vegas. I agree. But of course, you end up overeating and I was in pain for two days. That fat meat thing with pepper on it is bacon. It's very harsh to your system.

Mickey A and BJ Penn art. BJ lost in a harsh way. I wonder if he enjoyed the painting.

just so you know, Mickey Avalon's little public display of affection has been dubbed "the kiss of death." i'd warn him to never return to hawaii.

Apparently there was some fishiness going on over in GSP's corner.

Luke, don't know Mickey Avalon at all, how he ended up in our car, I have no idea, but I think he's somehow associated with BJ, his sponsors, etc etc.

Anyone from Hawaii, answer please. What's the story with this Avalon dude? I saw the kiss of death, but did he do other bad stuff in Hawaii? I read a little about him, he sounds disgusting.
