I've regretted every day since that 2003 attack being too polite to ask my showbiz friends for tickets to that show, and so I never did get to see it, and very much wanted to.

Does anyone have any Seigfried and Roy stories to share, memories from their act?
I only ever saw their TV special way back when. The words that came to mind were "cheesy, spectacular, and entertaining." But I guess that's Vegas in a nutshell.
