UNLV vs. BYU: You know you are in Vegas when...

By Lara Boyko - March 10, 2007

It's not in every arena or at any college basketball game where you can buy all forms of alcohol.

That is except for if you are the Thomas & Mack Center.

This is where the bars, and I'm not just talking about the kind of bar that only has a beer tap, come close to outnumbering the food stands. The bars up on the concourse level are fully stocked with everything you can imagine. There are even a couple of bars that look like they could be in a casino.

The combination of the alcohol with the firery nature of the fans, especially those sitting right behind me, gives me great comfort in my safety during this game. Sure I am the only female member of the print media and you would think that there would be someone along here who would help me out if need be, but after one of the BYU coaches who was scouting last night's UNLV vs. CSU got territorial over a seat that my laptop was in front of and my gluteus maximus had been planted in for the previous couple of hours, I know that I am all on my own.

Oh, there's also information tables on timeshare purchasing and a promotion to win private lessons from Nick Faldo also available for anyone who is interested.

Stay tuned, we're halfway through the first half and BYU is enjoying a comfortable 24-13 lead...
