THE BIG MIKE ROAD SHOW - 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY PICS ON PG 769


Recommended Posts

Todays lock city picks from Big Mike are:

 

 

Arizona (-2 1/2) over San Francisco

 

Miami/Jets over 36 points.

 

If you feel like posting your starting Fantasy Roster and that of your opponent feel free. I'm sure everybody at TPR would like to cheer on your players during the games versus just hearing afterwards about how big a "winner" you are.

 

In the Special Olympics everyone is a winner, also.

Damn, he cut it close on that over/under for Miami/Jets... 37 points!

 

Edit: Actually it was a 20-14 final... ouch! Hahahaaaaaaaaaa so much for the lock for week one

Hey Friends!!!

 

 

Todays lock city picks from Big Mike are:

 

 

Arizona (-2 1/2) over San Francisco

 

Miami/Jets over 36 points.

 

 

Tease those babies up and collect your sexual favors!!!

 

 

I will keep everyone posted on Big Mike's progress in Fantasy Football!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

 

 

 

Hey Friends!!!!

 

I know a lot of you still don't know Big Mike and the power and wisdom he has in all football in general.

 

Let it be known now that when BIG MIKE says it is LOCK CITY, IT IS LOCK CITY!!

 

I understand a lot of you don't understand football betting, so let me explain the above bet.

 

I picked two games, and I told you to TEASE them! Look above!

 

A tease bet is when you take two bets and you have to win BOTH to get money!

 

Since you have to win BOTH, you are allowed to move the point spread in your favor.

 

2 teams - 6 points.

3 teams - 9 points.

4 team teaser - 12 points.

 

Thus with my two team teaser, the actual bet looks like this moving it 6 points:

 

Arizona +3 1/2 over San Fransisco.

 

Jets/Dolphins over 30.

 

 

The FINAL scores:

 

Arizona 23, San Fransisco 13. Adjust the tease and I win 26 1/2 to 13.

 

Jets 20, Dolphins 14 - total 34. Adjust the tease to 30 and the over wins.

 

 

Thus, that is two for two and Big Mike has paid for 1/12 of the TPR trip already!!!

 

 

Lock City means Lock City!!!!!

 

 

Hope some of you jumped on the guarenteed sexual favors!!!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike da Man

^ I actually understood what you meant, but you should've given the detailed explanation before the betting started, Mike. Think of all the TPR members you left sleeping on the couch instead of with the hot babes.

Don't tease your followers like that!

That is very true Scott!

 

I was in super gear up mode for Fantasy Football, so I kind of breezed over the lock city bets.

 

I have got a few thank you PM's for some super fun that The Big Mike Readers who understood the bet got last night!

 

The worst part is that I know I am Larry's only hope of getting any sexual favors, and he was on the couch again last night

 

 

Stick with the Big Man and we will all be rich and sexually satisfied!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

^You bring new meaning to the term Sad and Pathetic.

 

I would also like to thank all the peeps who thanked me via PM for calling Big Mike out on bending his words and stretching the truth. I think the word fraud was mentioned a couple of times.

 

Your defintiion of "LOCK" should have been clearly caveated if it was only a lock if one teased the bet. I have never seen an expert proclaim a lock bet with a teaser proposition to the general population.

I would like to take this opportunity to formally apologize for any "haterism" I may have intentionally or unintentionally inflicted upon the Big Mike thread For the record, all "haterism" should have been directed toward broccoli, the silent green killer, and not anyone involved or affiliated with the Big Mike Road Show or Big Mike Productions, Inc. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

 

Be warned, broccoli; your day is coming!

That is the spirit, a little comedy is welcomed

 

 

Mike, when I sense that The Big Mike Road Show 2008 thread is losing a little steam, a good Big Mike/Little Larry fued is always great for the ratings!!! Works every time

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Hello Friends!!!!!

 

The Big Mike Road Show 2008 Heart of America Tour continued its trek, this time arriving in Oklahoma and a little kiddie park named Kiddie Park actually.

 

The place was closed but I thought The Big Mike Readers deserved to see any amusement park, no matter how big or how small!

 

One day maybe a dad or family living near there will want to go or just found out from me that the park existed and will have a fun day there!

 

So whenever anyone needs to check out a tiny park that is not in the main TPR gallery, you know to come to The Big Mike Road Show thread, because there is no doubt Big Mike will have visited it sooner or later

 

 

A funny story about this park was that I knew it was going to be closed, but I just wanted to check it out and see what it looked like. I pulled up and as I strolled around, I came upon a lady sleeping in her car by the roller coaster. I tried to be quiet as I was taking pictures and not startle her, but she woke up anyway. We talked for like 20 minutes and she was pretty darn hot! She comes to this spot by the roller coaster under a tree and takes a nap everyday she says. She told me all about the park and all the memories she has growing up there visiting the park since she was a kid. It was a nice chat and brightened my day, especially when she asked about my Official Big Mike Road Show 2008 Tour Shirt!

 

Well her lunch hour ended and she left without a good bye kiss, but if you ever see her sleeping under the tree, tell her Big Mike says hello!!

 

 

Hope you enjoy!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Remember the river nearby? Just like Knoebels, they like to mark the flood level.

027.JPG.29a61868a88e215d4e368e22efd005b9.JPG

I had thoughts about hopping into this train too like the last trip report, but passed on it.

026.JPG.06043756f9b9ea2bb242f234659b6092.JPG

The Santa Fe railroad too.

025.JPG.6496fdb0309c3fffe3c6d7f0ad01516a.JPG

This could be the first TPR trip report with a gushing derrick in it!

Right outside the park they are debuting this addition. Notice the big river flowing nearby.

Here are some other rides at this amusement park.

You then traverse a big forest of trees.

Turn the corner and another dip to keep you awake.

The lift.

You come out of the station and dip deep down into the Earth!

This is an overview of its course.

031.JPG.28e9f71e7ab77ba9a8a2e79c8276eb6e.JPG

... but it is actually called the Little Fire Ball and this is its train.

040.JPG.969d9273b2c6e3120e2aac5bbc292950.JPG

They have this sign set up calling the coaster the Little Dipper...

047.JPG.ba9b8733460ce9283aaaddc266247ee3.JPG

There is no prices listed because it is very easy to remember, ALL rides are just a quarter!

019.JPG.598e1abc61ee20219051239700fea1c1.JPG

You thought the last park I visited had limited hours, this one is barely ever open.

043.JPG.51702ed20ae25ec8fa7f929daa3116c8.JPG

Kiddie Park in Bartlesville Oklahoma! I got a PM saying that my face is in too many of the pictures, so JUST THIS ONCE, I will satisfy that person (you can probablt figure out easily who said it) and this will be the only picture of Big Mike in this report! Big Mike even takes care of his haters too! That is just the kind of guy Big Mike is :)

021.JPG.9af55821d400594a1a821f56224d0017.JPG

Remember, the last train ride of the night is ALWAYS FREE!!! I hope you enjoyed! Peace, Big Mike

Hi there great Friends!!!

 

 

The next stop on The Big Mike Road Show 2008's Heart of America Tour was All Star Adventures in Witchita Kansas!!

 

I had called ahead and was told one of the two coasters were just for kids, but that has never stopped Big Mike from trying before.

 

 

Hope you enjoy!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Playing sports my whole life, every once in a while you feel like you stole a game from another team. That is how I felt leaving All Star Adventures, stealing an extra credit for the victory!!! Hope you enjoyed! Peace, Big Mike

They even have a golf range attached to the park.

I don't know if it was my reasoning, The Official Big Mike Road Show T-Shirt, or my charisma with the hot babes, but the Big Mike Magic has worked again!!!

065.JPG.b95298631ddf53147d5967c15e70198e.JPG

I stated my case to her that if FOUR tigers can ride in one car, then ONE Big Mike should be able to also!

Hey Rick!!

 

I am trying to coordinate that the third round ducky game gets posted while you are vacationing at The Big Mike Hotel!!!

 

Honestly, I can only do the ducky game at the big parks, and this trip had a lot of small parks.

 

 

ATTENTION to the 20 players left in the game and the thousands still playing along, the Official Round 3 Ducky Game will take place in the Worlds of Fun trip report, which is only NINE trip reports away!!!! LOL

 

 

Love to all the Big Mike Readers!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Holy crap! Big Mike actually came to my home town? I didn't think you'd actually hit up Kiddie Park, I don't even think they allow people on the Little Dipper without kids. (It's officially called the Little Dipper in my book - the Little Fire Ball branding was added by CMS collision, who built the new trains.)

 

Meh, at least Bartlesville has some awesome architecture. Did you see Price Tower? Not bad for a little OK town.

Everyone will be jealous you got to see my hot babe wife in a bikini!

 

But i have a story YOU might be jealous of. Tonight my parents had their class reunion, and my mom called me from there and told me I had to get there right away, she said their was someone that she wanted me to meet. When I got there she introduced my to David Busch, who I remember as a kid was a friend of my parents and always at worlds of fun when we went. Well she told me tonight that we was the big boss at WOF right under Lamar Hunt! Now David owns several water parks all over the world! From China to Texas! Anyway he invited us to come visit him at some of his Texas parks and will show us around! I will let you know when we get the hook up!!!!

How cool is that being that we were just talking about Texas the other day lol.

 

 

Oklahoma was very nice

 

 

 

Well I suppose some of you know Lucky Dog. He is my dog that checked off oneof the states on The Official Big Mike Road Show T-Shirt.

 

Well Lucky Dog got cut open tonight somehow while out for a run and had to go to the Animal Hospital. He had to get some stitches. This is the 2nd time in 6 months.

 

So, he is all doped up and I have to give him pills and eye cream for 7 days.

 

Thus, this weekends trip to Michigan has been cancelled.

 

Back to back weekend trips, this one to Michigan and last weeks Myrtle Beach trip cancelled, lost both airfares lol. Granted they were only $18 and $39.

 

Add these to the cancelled Boston trip over Labor Day and The Big Mike Road Show 2008 is in a rut!

 

Have no fear though, the California Trip in October will still meet the quota of 100 parks visited this year

 

 

Time to go take care of Lucky Dog!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Give Lucky Dog our best Big Mike. Our Max fell down the steps today and gave us quite a scare. He is limping a little but I think he will be ok. Did you ring the bell on the coaster? I would have been ringing that bell so much that they would have kicked me off the coaster!---Bobbi Jo

Hello great friends!!

 

 

The next stop on The Big Mike Road Show 2008 Heart of America Tour was Zonkers in Olathe Kansas!

 

This was the last coaster I needed in Kansas, and now Kansas is 100% complete!!!

 

 

Before we get to the trip report, let me give you Big Mike's Week #2 NFL LOCK CITY picks!!!

 

 

Week #2 is always the tricky week, so usually I set up two bets and hope for a sweep, and settling for a split.

 

 

These are two team teasers again and for people like Larry who have a hard time understanding, I will just post the actual lines after they were moved 6 points for a two team teaser!

 

 

Big Mike's LOCK CITY bet #1

 

Rams +14 1/2 over Giants

Ravens +10 1/2 over Texans

 

 

Big Mike's LOCK CITY bet #2

 

Jets/Patriots over 31

Cardinals/Dolphins over 32 1/2

 

 

Update on Big Mike's Fantasy Football teams:

 

Big Money League = Big Mike 1-0

 

Regular Money League = Big Mike 1-0

 

 

Hope you enjoy the trip report!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike
