Rocco back "home" for good, expects to play Sunday Posted on November 30, 2016 at 06:00:56 PM by Jeff "Laca" Conway
Pro player and NJAA alumni "Rocco" is back home in Tampa- this time for good. He got transferred from the Hollywood Florida Hard Rock Casino to the Tampa one, where he is employed as a blackjack dealer in addition to some jai-alai "stints" like the one recently in Ft. Pierce.
The Tampa casino alone generates 1/2 of Seminole Tribe revenues of 2 billion dollars and dealers make much more in tips. The casino is adding a couple hundred employees and Rocco was successful in a transfer.
He will be added back to the list of players on the active roster. For the past couple of years, he had only played in a few games during his 3 or 4 brief visits here yearly.
He expects to play this Sunday after overcoming an ankle injury he suffered in Connecticut October 21st in the tournament event.
Oddly, I learned of his return while letting him know I would be in Dania this weekend. Now I will be done there while he is back here!
Congrats on the "promotion" and it will be good to see you back out on the world's greatest court! (choke, choke) Replies: There have been no replies.
