Alex’s Version of Hangover, Cornell Greatest (Almost) Upset January 8, 2010Posted by acc73 in : Uncategorized , trackback
So I celebrated New Year’s at Universal Studios Citywalk to usher in the new year/decade. It was alot of fun sipping comfortably on Cosmos (not mine, but the friend I celebrated with loved them! nothing wrong with a sippy sip) and Coronas celebrating my new found 21dom.
After New Years, my friends and I decided to live up the new decade in style staying at the Wynn Hotel. While I can’t go into significant details about the five-day extravanganza I can provide you with some highlights. Meeting Eddie Griffith at one of the casino bars (friend almost called him Chris Rock by mistake), doing the Dougie and dancing in an empty parking lot at 4am in the morning while walking back from Circus Circus, my friend winning 250 dollars the last night on his last 20 dollars, my losing streak of 150 dollars that capped off my night playing with the nickel slot winning 10 dollars and proceeding to buy them all on drinks, and spending two hours with this lovely homeless man who was by day pushing shopping carts by night a part-time comedian still pushing shopping carts. His words, not mine.
After returning home, I attended the Lakers-Clippers game and anxiously kept updated about the Cornell’s men basketball team. We played #1 Kansas with the longest home-winning streak in the nation and lost in the last minute. I couldn’t help but feel Cornell pride! We are actually receiving Top 25 votes for basketball, it’s incredible. These men are real scholar-athletes competing against the best. The Clippers won too and are only one game from .500. This week has been awesome to say the least.
