What is the last junkie bet you made?

You know what I am talking about. That late night bet that you make when you are up OR down (lol) on some sport or event  you do not know anything about. The reason I bring this up is because around midnight or so I was adding up my WNBA for the week (yes, I said WNBA) and realized how well the week ended with Seattle covering last night. I went into full junkie mode and clicked to see if anything was available to bet on. Not finding anything to bet, I clicked horses and see there are some horses running in Australia. With a few minutes to post I click the pending race and scan the names and see TICTACS. Wait....I love tic tacs! Those little orange pieces of heaven. That settles it, $100 across..... I wake up to see this:
