This is one of my favorite stories about iKeith. I tell it to new friends every single chance I get and bring it up around iKeith's family even more.
When Keith was growing up, his parents ran a large foster home for children. When he was older, they had transitioned into caring for older mentally challenged men.
For some bizarre reason...they would take these men to Blackhawk to play the slots and there was a deal where you rode a shuttle bus and got a room.
Keith went with them one time and he was rooming with Carl Stanford. Carl was in his 50's and quite a character. He really admired Keith and liked spending time with him. Oh and he wore a suit and tie all the time. Carl liked to suit up!
They got up and headed down to meet the other's in the breakfast room. As they got on the elevator a young couple jumped on; there was an awkward silence as there often is on an elevator.
Carl broke the silence by informing this couple that he and Keith had slept together and that they were business buddies.
Keith quietly interjected that they shared a ROOM not a bed, while the couple tried to stifle a giggle.
I believe this was when Keith stopped gambling.....
