    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Going to Vegas!

    So I'm flying to Vegas on Monday, immediately after getting back from Cedar Point.
    \m/
    I'm officially going as a merchant for Combatcon (which some of you may have heard of), but I'm setting aside some extra days to explore the city.
    Between rounds of gambling my life savings away, I want to do some training down there. Given that it's sort of the heart of the MMA industry, it appears that there's more than a few well reputed gyms down there.
    I have a list of recommendations from my own coach, but figured that, like Moose before me, I'd crowdsource my life decisions to a bunch of assholes on the internet.
    So yeah. Gym recommendations? For that matter, other Things to Do recommendations? (besides the above mentioned gambling my life away, which goes without saying)
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    It's the bats.. just holding one (or two for you FMA guys) in the hand(s) makes people more inclined to violence.

    I played on my unit team in Germany. I sucked so bad that my own teammates wanted to kick my ass so yeah, it can be a violent sport.

    Vegas is cool as hell, just remember to use the damn elevated crosswalks. Drivers on the strip and surrounding area have no mercy for you and believe their vehicles run on the souls of sacrificed jaywalkers.

    We never had softball leagues. We had ultimate frisbee. We were pretty damn good at it, too. It was fun times, hooah hooah hardcore units getting whooped up on by a bunch of intel "weenies."
