Championship or Bust for Las Vegas Aces this Season?
🏀 🏆 🔥 “Reigning MVP” A’Ja Wilson shines on the blazing cover of Las Vegas Weekly. She explains in her interview how they came so close to a championship last season and how they hope to rise above their challenges with a win. “I’ve never been this eager before to play. I’ve been working so hard this offseason just to get my mind right, my body right,” Wilson tells Las Vegas Weekly.
The source says that she earned MVP last year with her best campaign yet and that two of their important players, Liz Cambage and Kelsey Plum, were out of the game last season. However, both have returned eager to win and the stakes are higher. After three years of coming so close to a championship, this year is deemed to be either being a championship or a bust. We’re rooting for Wilson and the team to finally see all their hard work come to fruition.
Be Seduced into Getting Your Vaccine at the Strip Club
💉 😷 👠 I don’t think there is anything more Vegas than vaccine shots being offered at Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club. This pop-up clinic is happening today from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Plus, those who are fully vaccinated get a free platinum membership card, a complimentary bottle, free dances and tickets to see ‘Sexxy After Dark by Jennifer Romas’ with limousine service, according to FOX 5 Las Vegas News. Only in Las Vegas, right?!?
This news is gaining a lot of traction all over the country. KTNV news anchor, Kalyna Atrinos, even woke up to texts saying her delivery of this news landed a spot on The Jimmy Kimmel Show. Watch her share it on her TikTok below.
