Everybody Loves Raymond

    Just had to share this.

    We were at the Tulalip casino yesterday, a very large Indian casino North of Seattle. Ray Romano and Brad Garrett were there playing poker and blackjack. It was weird. They were walking through the casino, and no one paid any attention to them. Our dealer told us they were there, and then they walked past us to the blackjack table where they played undisturbed for quite awhile and then left. Brad Garrett is REALLY tall, and Ray is pretty skinny. Wish they had played at our table. That would have been fun.

    Someone said they are doing a standup comic show in Seattle this week which explains why they were in this part of the country at a casino.

    Last summer Christopher Meloni played poker next to me in Las Vegas. His friends would come by the table and call him Chris. He looked familiar to me, but I couldn't place the face and then I realized who he was and asked him if he was Chris Meloni. He said he had never heard of him, and that his name was Tom. For those who don't know who that is, he plays Elliot Stabler on Law and Order SVU. He was nice and I don't blame him for not wanting the attention. I dropped the subject, but it was him.

    I love Everybody Loves Raymond, I never watched it as a series, but I will watch while I eat dinner sometimes and it reminds me of my former marriage. I think he is quite funny.

    I think Christopher Meloni is gorgeous, I go to Vegas at least three times a year, do share which casino this was in? Just joking...

    Years ago my mother in law was playing in vegas when frank senatra came and sat next to her (I think they were playing poker).

    Anyhoo, MIL played it cool and acted like he was no one special. After a while he turned to her and said "Hi Red, How are you" (MIL is a redhead).

    She barely glanced at him and said "Oh fine, I just wish all these people would quit staring at me!"

    He laughed.

    BTW, don't ever play poker with my MIL, you will lose all your money.

    I won't tell the Elders what you confessed to Mulan.

    Chris Meloni was at Planet Hollywood. The table across from us had John McEnroe playing. Also saw Andre Agassi and his wife, Steffi Graff walking through, and Kanye West coming down an escalator. No one pays attention to them. Kanye had bodyguards though, and I had to be told who he was..........would not have known otherwise. There was a celebrity event there that night, where they got gift bags, prior to the MTV awards that were the next night.

    I'm going in May with 9 of my friends, to Planet Hollywood again. Wish I could be at the WSOP event too. That would be fun to see, just once. I'd try and play if I could afford the entry fee.

    If I saw Christopher Meloni, I would have wet my pants. I know alot of bands and muscians, but there are still some celebrities that make my toes curl. I have figured out though, most of them just want to be either left alone or as one of the guys. I was at a concert with a well known artist. We were sitting there talking and I notice people talking, staring and snapping pics. He was completely clueless. I told him and he looked around. I asked if he was flattered by the attention. He said he just enjoyed quiet times like we were having better, where he could just be himself not his personna.

    Wow Mulan obviously playing poker and going to the casino can be very interesting. We have casinos up here in Canada but I doubt they attract celebrities.

    I saw Brad Garett in Toronto in Yorkville one day a few years ago. I was sitting in a restaurant at a window table and he stopped right outside the open window where I was for some reason. He made eye contact with me for a second . I was so tempted to say Hi, but I didn't want to bother him. Yes he was very tall but not as large as I thought he would be. I loved Everybody Loves Raymond and have seen everyone of the shows many times over.

    I watch Law and Order SVU all the time and think Christopher is a great actor.

    I have never played Poker at a casino but have played lots of it at home with friends. I was a croupier at one time, dealt blackjack. Love that game.

    they have qualifier tourneys so each person puts up like $50, or $100 and then the winner gets a 10K seat. they have them for all the smaller events also.

    "Everybody Loves Raymond" just happens to be my favorite show. Funny thing, though, I didn't watch one single episode until it had already went into sydication.
