I watched the ABC special last week of the S&R final goodbye. While I know it was for a good cause (Lou Ruvo Brain Center) and the story was quite touching, that final goodbye skit seemed kind of eerie, from what I saw on the TV. Some scary voice saying that S&R's spirit had left the building (a take off on Elvis, I guess?) and then they come out dressed like death (in masks). At first, the audience didn't even seem like they were paying attention...or that they thought it was some weird joke.

Just wondering if anyone got to see it live, and had a better take on it.

not sure...try ABC.com, since they aired the special and had filmed the whole thing.

I am quite surprised that with all the rich, generous, civic-minded residents that post here, not one of you made it. Sure, it might have been expensive, but it all went to a good cause (Ruvo Brain Center)...one of the bright spots in LV during this economy. On top of that, it was a chance to love, support and say goodbye to 2 LV players (S&R), who have done so much for your city.

I had to be to work on Monday. Besides, I still don't trust Monticore. IMO, a better final goodbye would have been to have Siegfried shove a dynamite stick up Monticore's *** and have Roy light the fuse. But I guess PETA might have put up a stink.
