    Your name is Michael Stahl, author of "Kerry Packer — Tall tales & true stories".

    In the Las Vegas Review Journal in 2005 Mirage Resorts president Bobby Baldwin confirmed a well-known story, about an extremely generous tip given to a lucky cocktail waitress at the MGM Grand.

    ‘He liked the service the girl was providing. He asked her if she had a mortgage. She said yes, and he said, “Bring it in tomorrow and I’ll pay it off for you”. It was for US$150,000.’

    A similar story told in Whale Hunting in the Desert: Secrets of a Las Vegas Superhost has Packer accidentally bumping a cocktail waitress, causing her to spill her drinks tray. Packer asked for her name and address and saw to it that her US$130,000 mortgage was immediately mopped up.

    And it seems Kerry Packer was as determined in his generosity as he was in everything else. Garry Linnell reported yet another mortgage-magic act in Vegas, where Packer pushed US$80,000 worth of chips towards a deserving croupier.

    You might be a BELIEVER of tall tales if you believe:

    If Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow on Groundhog Day, then that means there are six more weeks of winter. If not, then we'll have an early spring. :D

    You say you remember "Superbowl" 1
    [​IMG]
    The stadium had 33,000 empty seats, tickets for the game went for a top price of $12 (Dh44) and college marching bands supplied most of the entertainment.

    No, this was not some minor college football game.

    This was the AFL-NFL World Championship, the 1967 origin of the Super Bowl, an event that has become a virtual national holiday in the United States and is celebrating its 50th anniversary game on February 7 in Santa Clara, California.

    You come from Tennessee

    Davy Crockett,
    from the mountains of Tennessee, to the Alamo, to Congress.
    He introduced himself to Congress:

    "I am that same Davy Crockett, fresh from the back woods, half-horse, half-alligator, a little touched with the snapping turtle...I can whip my weight in wildcats...and eat any man opposed to Jackson."

    "Tennessee" Ernie Ford

    I read the whole Alamo article from your link and I was super interested to read the different accounts of how Crockett died. It pretty much dispels my late Uncle's genealogy account of our family's involvement with Crockett at the Alamo :rolleyes:
    ….no one ever took it seriously anyway…guess my uncle was just another Tall Tale Teller :D
