Special Sub-Topic: "Blood and Sand"
|The Montecito is holding a fight night with a number of boxing clashes. The main event features a guest actor. This actor is a real boxer...and a champion at that too. With the nickname of "Sugar"... who is the fighter?|
Shane Mosley. 'Sugar' Shane Mosley is a former lightweight, welterweight and Jr.Middleweight champion of the world and has been touted as the best pound-for-pound fighter ever. As a coincidence, his next fight from today is at Mandalay Bay, the casino that the Montecito is based on.
|Sugar's opponent for the night is Cedric "The Cannonball" Barimba. Barimba seems to have earned some fans who have a difference to most normal fans of boxing. What are they?|
Transvestites. Barimba's fan base is made up of cross-dressers and transvestites. It's not stated during the show specifically but Mosley and the like make fun of him and calling him a cross-dresser. He is dark skinned with a white frilly hairpiece and is seen using a nail file in a press conference. The transvestites have banners...one that reads "HE-SHES NEED HE-ROES"!
|Nessa, Mike and Delinda are seen coming back from the gym when they stumble upon a gym bag left in between two dumpsters. What was inside it?|
A load of money. Inside is about $75,000. Unfortunately, they are resigned to finding who the owner is and handing it back to them.
|Leading up to the big fight between Sugar and Barimba, their respective crews are having mini scuffles with each other. One scuffle sees Sugar's cutman lose something very personal to him, something that Barimba's crew stole. What did the cutman, Mr Scanlan, lose?|
His prosthetic leg. They managed to pull off his leg and hide it during the scuffle. Danny has to find the missing leg or Mosley won't fight!
|Mary is organizing who the round card girls are going to be for the big fight night. During auditions, Danny walks in and one of the round card girls asks him what his favourite number is. What was his response?|
21. As the two girls are holding up the round cards, being 2 an 1, one of them asks him which one was his favourite. His brilliant answer of 21 was a cracking response!
|One of the round card girls, Robyn, has backed out of the job after receiving a better offer from a whale, Mr Harimoto. With Robyn out, who tells Mary that she'll take over... in return for a favour?|
Sam. Good ol' Mr Herman is staying at the Montecito this weekend. He has brought along his girlfriend who in turn has met another lady there by the name of Lisa. Mr Herman needs another ticket for the fight, something which Mary says she'll give Sam if Sam takes over as round card girl. Unfortunately Sam comes down ill before the fight...leaving Mary to do the job herself.
|With Sugar/Barimba being the main drawcard on fight night, one of the undercard fights has caught the attention of Ed. There is an irregular pattern of betting on this fight, and the hunch is that it's fixed. Ed and Danny learn that the fighter who is being bet against has medical problems and is completely broke even though he was a former champion. It's pretty clear that he's planning on throwing the fight...and duly does. What was the name of this ex-champ?|
Coleman Riggs. Riggs finds out that his health isn't so good. He's got a Subdural haematoma. Along with this he has next to no money to his name. Ed and Danny try to stop Riggs as he's leaving, but they let him leave after he throws Danny questioning him why he doesn't work for his old man. He throws the fight against Emile Socha but his future is left unknown. Frankie Gavin and Danny Green are pro boxers from England and Australia respectively.
|Do Mike, Nessa and Delinda find who owns what was in the bag...and do they return it?|
Find them/Return it. The money was owned by the Blue Man Group and they return it to them. To their shock and surprise...the Blue Man Group shred the money and shoot it out through their cannons!
|Danny gets the night off for the fight and gets to watch it with his father. What is the name of Danny's father?|
Larry. Danny helped out Riggs by offering him a job with his father. As a way of saying thanks, Ed gave Danny two tickets for him and his dad to go. John Terry plays Larry throughout the first two seasons of "Las Vegas". He plays a character by the name of Christian on "Lost", David on "E.R" and Bob on "24".
|Finally, the fight takes place. Does Sugar win?|
y. Mosley smashes Barimba with a right cross that knocks Barimba to the floor. Fight over.
