Fezzik, the Las Vegas professional gambler, goes by one name only. He's sometimes erroneously called "Steve Fezzik" in the media. I asked him point blank which he prefers, and he said just Fezzik. This makes sense. We're talking about Fezzik, the (semi-) public figure. So what if his given first name might happen to be Steve? His given last name is not Fezzik. When we write about the famous movie director, we write about Woody Allen, not Allen Konigsberg. When we write about the gambler, we write about Fezzik, not whatever his birth name is. And "Steve Fezzik" makes no sense at all. It's mixing the two. It would be like writing about "Woody Konigsberg."
It's nearly as thick as the Old Testament, and just as fraught with peril for the imprudent.
It's the booklet of wagering propositions -- "props" -- on the Super Bowl issued each year by Las Vegas casinos.
Casual gamblers love Super Bowl props because they tend toward the wacky and whimsical -- Vince Carter's points versus Tom Brady's completions. Other misguided souls dismiss all props as "sucker bets."
