Used to watch Jai Alai at the old MGM Casino in Reno back when I was book learnin at UNR a thousand years ago. Couldn't remember a name if a gun was at my head (probably couldn't pronounce it anyway - most were Basque or south American). Was a blast to watch even though after the 4th or 5th bourbon & water trying to follow that little round missile was next to impossible.
Never heard that it was illegal - just not well attended. MGM carried for 8 - 10 years as I recall. There were a few times when other than the 2 or three of us there the place was empty but for the cocktail waitresses. Can't imagine why it'd be illegal except for the gambling aspect to it - not a problem in NV.
Want a quick and inexpensive call for Moose? Take an empty 32 ounce coffee can, and make a small slit in the bottom, only about a quarter inch. Then, take one of those really big red rubber bands, the ones that go around big folders. Cut the rubber band to make one long piece.
Now, thread one end of the band and tie a knot on the outside of the can so it won't pull through. Cut the band off on the other side so it is even with the top of the can.
Now, wet your finger,...
