Commerce Casino $2500 No Limit Hold'em

I was out after 7 hours of play when a benignly drunk Frank Mariani, who I am told owns half of the Lakers, raised a $1200 pot all-in from the small blind with 78o. I had AA for the first time all day and called. The board came 4-10-10-7-7 so I was out. I got a bit, but not extraordinarily, lucky beforehand, but it was still a sick hand. There were 4 tables left. 15th paid $3100 and 1st paid $99k or so.
