I went to my first hockey game last week (thanks for the tickets, JL).

The game was great, but my favorite part was between periods. This local casino was doing a promotional thing where they have this giant electronic roulette wheel that goes all the way around the arena. A guy picks copper or blue and if the wheel stops on his color, he gets a prize.

He got three 'spins' and lost every single time. I think he walked out of there with a baseball hat.

I'm not in marketing like JL, but that struck me as the worst promotion for a casino ever. "Come to our casino and lose all your money."

If they watched 'Casablanca' these things wouldn't happen.
