Keith Strudler: Just Move Baby!

Mar 29, 2017

The definition of the word “raider” is someone who takes something by force. Or, someone who plunders or pillages. But that definition, the Raiders is the perfect name for the football team the city of Las Vegas forcefully took from Oakland, where the team has spent the vast majority of its 57 years. The soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders will move to Sin City no earlier than 2018, and perhaps as late as 2020, when the city completes its new domed stadium. Which means they’ll be something of a lame duck in the Bay Area for the next year or two. Talk about awkward. It’s like firing someone right before you start a cross-country drive together.

MLB:

In baseball, in the American League, Baltimore edged Boston 3-2, Tampa Bay slid past Seattle 8-7, Detroit won against the White Sox 11-8, Kansas City beat Cleveland 3-2, Texas bested Oakland 10-6, and it was the Angels over Minnesota 5-4.

Keith Strudler: The NFL Show Comes To Town

May 11, 2016


Today’s Las Vegas is far more than dirty casinos and adult night clubs. There’s high end restaurants, Broadway shows, five star hotels, and even a monorail that makes Sin City look more like Disney than Sodom and Gomorrah. For those seeking good clean fun, few towns offer more than Las Vegas.

  Chrysler Szarlan’s debut novel, The Hawley Book of the Dead, introduces us to Revelation Dyer. Together, she and her husband Jeremy have three daughters, a beautiful home, and a world-famous Las Vegas magic act.

But Reve has many secrets, secrets that have not only shaped her past but now threaten her family.
