Sure, sounds great. I would love to do this, just as much I’d like to have a Ferrari in my garage and Eva Mendes or two under my arms, while I’m soaking up the sun in my summer house in Bora Bora. Unless I’m living in the US, I first have to muster up the money to get there. But I’m in luck, because guess what? This is site that has tons of info about online gambling, and can help me get the money to get to New Orleans, one day…

I promise!”
