That is an interesting thought.. The veteran teams will definitely be out doing a little gambling and maybe some clubbing... If they arrive a day (and night) early, many will surely be out, having a few beers, playing some table games...
I've seen it many times working in casino's.. Many of the veterans would come up when they were playing in California or Arizona..
My favorite. one day when Ray Bourque and his boys stopped in on their way to L.A. Kings.(Bruins).. They played Black Jack and drank beer in my section all day.. (day before an afternoon game)... They lost 6-3 as a favorite... I only bet 100.00 and was pi$$ed I didn't bet more..... Athletes often come, love to gamble, love the attention and enjoy their freedom...
