It has been a dreadful Vegas trip so far for the guys, if we are talking about making money. To try to get the lads mind off the bad losses I have organised a boxing fight between John O Shea and Ross Johnson. The house is full of professional gamblers so it would be silly to think there will not be any bets going on the fight! Fight night is on the 10th July. John O Shea (88.3kg) Ross Johnson (101.6kg) 5x90sec rounds, 90sec breaks. International judging panel and ring girls organised! John O Shea 4/5 to win. Ross Johnson 10/11 to win. Get your bets on @MurphyMulti.
I have been training Ross & John 1 on 1 in boxing, getting their technique right and most of all their defense! I train them everyday in the heat for 5x2min rounds each, then they spar against each other for 3x2min rounds. They are only supposed to go 40%-50% hard, but try tell them that when someone lands a punch to their nose! I am trying to organise more fights between the guys in the house but none of them are up for it yet.
I took John on in Basketball again because he kicked my ass last week. I am super over competitive and hate losing! I managed to beat John 4-0, which made my day! He also took me on in bowling and he ended up losing 3-0 and $800. Not a bad day’s work for me.
We went out to Surrender in The Wynn on Saturday night. We had a game of beer pong before we hit the strip. I joined up with John to take on Nick and Multi, managed to win $200 off them by the end of the night! Multi crumbled under pressure! This betting thing is easier than I thought! We got back from Surrender that night to find Multi K-O-ed on the sun bed outside, we duct taped his feet together and covered his eyes and wheeled him into the pool! We were ready to take our shoes off if he did not surface! However 3 seconds later there he was, flapping like a drowning bird! The footage is comical!
We got some fireworks for Independence Day and when John went to bed, we decided to let off a few screamers in his room! Eight guys tip toed up the stairs giggling, we quietly opened the door and throw in the fireworks………..John ducked under the covers for safety! The fire alarm went off for ages and John had to sleep in a room full of smoke for the night!
God help us this week because the cleaner is going away for 5 days, even after 1 day the sink is full of dishes so it should be interesting at the end of the week. The window is still not fixed and the aircon is going straight outside, so the kitchen is ridiculously hot during the day. The pool is also broken building up dirt! Let’s hope things get fixed this week!
My little betting experience on the side is going well, I am up $280 in poker, $900 in bowling and $200 in beer pong! Total $1380, means nothing till I have left Vegas tho!
I Completed triathlon Olympic distance this week in the gym, 1.5km swim, (31.12) 40km ride, (1h25m) 10 km run (48.35) this week. Felt great and really loving the training. I went for a 10km run outside and got lost on a building site; I had to jump a few fences to get out alive with big machines moving closely by. Summary of this weeks training, Swim 4km, Run 22km and Bike, 60km.
