We finally got one at 7:30 am this morning — a white BMW, that picked us up at the MGM Grand for a quick drive to the Mandalay Bay.The car, while self-driving on public roads like the Las Vegas Strip, is driven manually on hotel properties. That meant as we swung out of the back ride share lot from the MGM Grand, and into a left turn on to South Las Vegas Blvd the car was in manual mode, with the driver's hands at 10 and 2, and her feet on the pedals.• Alabama radio station...whoopsOne Alabama radio station got a little ahead of itself late Monday night.The Crimson Tide were defeated handily by Clemson in the College Football Playoff title game, but WJOX-94.5 FM in Birmingham ran a pre-recorded commercial from a Hoover-based Academy Sports + Outdoors store advertising Alabama national championship gear.“What a great win over Clemson for the Crimson Tide. The sixth title in 10 years. Truly amazing. Title number seven for Nick Saban,” the commercial said. “We’re excited to celebrate this incredible victory with you.”• Tuna sells for 3 millionThe owner of a Japanese sushi restaurant chain on Saturday set a record by paying more than $3 million for a bluefin tuna in the year's first auction at Tokyo's new fish market, exceeding his own record price of 2013.Kiyoshi Kimura, who owns the Sushizanmai chain, paid 333.6 million yen ($3.1 million) for the 278-kg (613-lb) fish caught off the coast of northern Japan's Aomori prefecture, or double what he had paid six years ago."The tuna looks so tasty and very fresh, but I think I did too much," Kimura told reporters outside the market later.-RULES OF ENGAGEMENT1.

She suspected the cause was low blood sugar, so she opened up a cell phone app which monitors blood sugar levels.The venue has signs posted prohibiting the use of cell phones, but this she says was a medical necessity. Torosian says she was confronted by security guards and she tried explaining she was a diabetic who needed to monitor her blood sugar, but that fell on deaf ears.She claims she and her wife were then escorted to a medical tent, where she again tried to explain why she was using her phone. Torosian says they were then ejected from the venue and never got a refund.Torosian says it's a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act to have an unwavering policy prohibiting cell phone use when there's a medical necessity.
