I have been banished to my room because I do not take Dr. Who seriously. My wife and daughter are hosting a viewing party, and I am persona non grata.

So, a couple topics:

1) I am going to Las Vegas as a gift to the wife, who has never been. I haven't been in over a decade, so any recommendations or stories people have are appreciated.

2) I realize most people have used up their Give A Fuck points on the Little League World Series over Ms. Davis, but please give the story of Chicago's entry a try. If you aren't familiar, Deadspin did a nice primer Thursday:

They won the US championship today, and go for the international tomorrow. It is a real nice story, though I am waiting for it to fall apart in term of embezzled funds, infighting, and other scandal. (It is Chicago, after all)
