10 for Summer '07: #5 Las Vegas

Yep, Las Vegas. Some people hate it - I love it. It doesn't hurt that I like to gamble. Get me a seat in a sports book and I'm a happy camper. And, counterintuitively, I think the best time of year to go to Las Vegas is during the summer. Yes, it's 115 degrees outside - but who goes to Vegas to spend time outside, anyway?
The first time I went to Vegas was in high school, when we used to go to run cross country meets at UNLV. It sounds like a recipe for disaster - a bunch of high school kids in Las Vegas, and yep, it pretty much was. But it instilled in me a sense of fun and nostalgia for the place. No matter what age or stage I'm in, I've always had a great time.
