  • Blog Post: Poker legend Brunson backs Obama for president

    I love Doyle and all (especially after sitting by him in the VIP Section hosted by BetUS a few years back and seeing a gaggle of young tramps hovering around him), but does his endorsement really mean much? Poker legend Brunson backs Obama for president Posted by Josh Slagter The Grand Rapids Press February...
  • Blog Post: Sprewell goes to MC Hammer for financial advice

    Stupid is as stupid does..... These NBA players baffle me. For one of the few times in my life, I am speechless on how moronic this bum is: Sprewell's yacht sold, home could be foreclosed Ex-NBA star owes $295,138 on his Milwaukee-area house MILWAUKEE - Former NBA star Latrell Sprewell's home...
  • Blog Post: 1980's Basketball: Best of All-Time????

    Listening to all the Kobe vs. Lebron talk got me thinking back to the 80's when the NBA still had some class and people actually did something called a jump shot. Granted, I was a child of the 80's being born in the mid 70's, but if you look at the rundown, it is hard not to say cats like...
  • Blog Post: The first time Johnny Detroit went bust....

    Every person who lives the life of a gambler has times when they hit rock bottom or go bust. When I say the life of gambler, I do not mean working a 9-5 and placing some wagers online. I mean 24/7 living it. The people, the money swings, everything. I got my start off young running parlay cards but quickly...
  • Blog Post: Favorite All-Star game moment

    Even though I am not that big fan of the NBA any longer, the old school All-Star games bring back some great memories. The slam-dunk battles with Spud, Dominque and MJ. Bird, Jordan, Magic, Isiah etc all on the same court. My all time fav was back when the NBA Slam Dunk contest went head to head versus...
  • Blog Post: So I am watching some AWA Wrestling on ESPN Classic....

    And it was made even more clear why Vince ended up the victor in the WWF vs the wrestling world. Man, the AWA in the final years before they declared bankruptcy was soooooooooooo bad. The storylines were so lame. The announcers were so lame. Shit, I remember being a little kid and thinking their damn...
  • Blog Post: Most overrated athletes of all time?

    You seem to always see the debates about Lebron vs Kobe, 80's vs 90's or Brady vs Manning. These arguments take the best of the best and end up in a pretty good discussion. For today's topic, how about we look at the worst of the best. You know, those athletes that go down in history as a...
  • Blog Post: 50 Hottest Student Bodies: Who is #1???

    Playing around the web I found this pretty amazing list. I honestly think Michigan should not be ANYWHERE near a list like this. Most of the hot chicks end up at Michigan State or Central Michigan. But overall, worth the read and looking for feedback: 50. Illinois Nothing better than a hot girl...
  • Blog Post: This is why I hate the NBA....

  • Blog Post: Boo-Hoo for Las Vegas....

    I decided to start a collection for all of those poor sportsbook owners who are crying the blues over the Super Bowl. All of the headlines following the Giants outright victory over the Patriots as 12 point underdogs have me a little worried: "Sportsbooks take a gamble on the Super Bowl, lose big"...
  • Blog Post: Do you remember your 1st bet?

    When I say "bet", I mean one with a book or offshore. The first money that ever exchanged hands on a sporting even was in 6th grade when I bet this chick from Arizona in my class on the Michigan-Arizona Rose Bowl. Wolverines lost and Karen got a handful of change. Johnny Detroit's first...
  • Blog Post: What is your worst gambling beat ever (no poker stories)?

    I mean "bad beat/back door" cover as in "DOH" and not as in "$$$". Poker stories need not apply as I hear enough of this drival at the casino and the home games I play in. I can only take so many "one outer" and "can you believe he called me" tirades...

  • Blog Post: Why this country is in such bad shape......

    I read stuff like this and shake my head in disgust. This almost sounds like something from the "Onion" (web site that is all spoof news), but it is 100% true: NBC game show faces illegal gambling lawsuit By BILL RANKIN The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Published on: 02/27/08 When a Forsyth...
  • Blog Post: Johnny Detroit heads to New York....

    Taking a much needed vacation next week. Myself and three old school buddies are hopping in the Caddy and driving to New York City to see the Tigers/Yankees play on Tuesday.

  • Blog Post: Sport's fans wet dream...

    Granted the wife is none too happy, but here is my weekend: Friday: 20 rows from the court at the Sweet 16. Backing both favorites in Wisconsin and Kansas to cover (and obviously win). Saturday: Friend gave me his (2) season tickets to Pistons/Cavs game. First row right behind the visitors bench. Taking...
  • Blog Post: Jim Rome is like that show Seinfeld....

    You either love it or hate it. For example, EVERYTIME I come to Las Vegas RJ tries getting me to watch a TIVOed episode to convert me to the Seinfeld side. The end result trip after trip is the same, the show is still not funny. Sorry Seinfeld fans, there is nothing funny about this TV Show. I would...

    Starting getting ill last night and woke up running a temp and feeling like I was worked over by a band of angry circus clowns.....Per some emails and blog replies, YES, I will be updating 2 point total moves and side moves of 1.5 points (that move at one time, not gradually in 1/2 point increments)...
  • Blog Post: 100,000 Star TV Game of the Year Inside!

    Just kidding. I was bored the other day and went through a schedule book from last season and was amazed at all the locks, blowouts and inside information games that I discovered. First I laughed to myself that they were making these outrageous claims in a schedule book that is produced a months in advance...
  • Blog Post: Due to Win will make you Due to Go Broke!

    It never fails that every few months you see on some forum about a guy using a classic "chase" system. They than give some stats and how they are 42-0 using it. Since I started in this business I would need a few more arms to count on my fingers how many of these "systems" I have...
  • Blog Post: Does football suck this season or is it just me?

    First off, I am not referring to the horrible weekend I had with my selections or the fact I am under 50% in college football (still doing well in pro ball though). What I am ranting about is football overall this season for both the NFL and College. As I write this, this season has been going by very...
  • Blog Post: Britney Spears when she gets older.....

    Where or where has my Britney Spears gone! They did an age progression on her and came up with the bingo hall queen slob-a-saurus below......Remember when Britney was so damn hot dancing in the school girl outfit? Now she looks like the damn lunch lady. Shame [:'(]
