My wife and I, along with our good friends, Fred and Florence Barakat, spent a few days in Las Vegas for the Floyd Mayweather vs. Shane Mosley showdown.  We had a blast seeing shows like Barry Manilow and Marie Osmond and eating at some of Vegas' best restaurants.  The trip culminated with the big match-up between Mayweather and Mosley.  We were lucky to be invited to the pre-fight party by HBO.  I was like a kid in a candy store with all the celebs.  

The party was filled with one celeb after the other.  I had a thrill talking with Jets quarterback, Mark Sanchez, and Santonio Holmes, and brothers Kris Jenkins (Jets) and Cullen Jenkins (Packers).  I also got a kick out of meeting Jamie Foxx and Cedric the Entertainer. We also ran into recent NCAA Championship coach, Mike Krzyzewski out in Vegas.  He was having a much deserved vacation and it was great to catch up with him.  I can't thank everyone with HBO enough for being so kind to us. In the end, Mayweather was too strong for Mosley and he remains undefeated.  It was certainly an exciting time to be in Vegas with all the hoopla surrounding the fight.
