Tuley's Takes on NBA, NHL homestretch

tuley

We hope everyone had a great Fourth of July like we did at the Tuley’s Takes home office. Maybe you were among the 300,000 who flooded our reopened city to celebrate the holiday weekend. It was great to see the Strip and downtown Las Vegas looking like pre-pandemic times and the summer concert season off to a great start.

We hope to see many of you during the rest of the summer, whether you’re coming here to sign up for the football contests or just to join all the others who want to return to our fair city after a long absence.

Yes, it’s hot as h-e-double-hockey-sticks, but it’s a dry heat — 108 outside, but a perfect 77 in the home office. Let’s not forget that central air conditioning has just as much to do with Nevada’s success as a tourist destination as do legalized gambling, quickie divorces and fancy hotels.

Even so, locals try to get away for at least a little bit during the summer. On my last getaway two weeks ago to take my kids to summer camp near Yosemite National Park, we also drove 15-year-old Jonah, a family friend. When we were coming to the end of our nearly eight-hour drive to camp, he said, “We’re in the homestretch.” He thought he was being cute by using an old-fashioned term favored by Boomers, but I had to give him the real-world meaning that the homestretch is when champions are determined and winners are paid (plus place and show!). The homestretch is not just an ending, it’s when things get down to the nitty-gritty, when we separate the men from the boys. I was full of cliches to let him know how important the homestretch is instead of just the end of a trip.
