Wednesday, April 17, 2013's Lowdown

Now that's what I call a battle of the bulge! Ugh. Nevermind.

There'll be a plethora of pectorals in the Blue Lake Casino's Sapphire Palace on Wednesday when Las Vegas gyrating beefcake squad Thunder From Down Under oil up to drop a serious "G'Day" on Humboldt ladies. 

How strong is the TFDU charm? Please enjoy this video (below) of a female Chicago news reporter landing her best assignment evah and tripping over her words when she interviews the boys. This could be you, gals!
