Everyone loves them some football.......It's GETTING CLOSE!!
PS - Great rant. You are absolutely correct. It's time sports bettors organized.
The NCAA is no better. I have never figured out why the only betting allowed are those things that are the worst deals for the gambler -- lotteries, powerball, slot machines, and horse racing.
I also never understood what it is about football and basketball players that makes them so susceptible to being corrupted by gambling, while jockeys, harness drivers, horse trainers, horse breeders, greyhound owners, greyhound trainers and jai ala players are completely immune to the corruption of gambling. (Well,may be not harness drivers.) Maybe they ought to inoculate those NFL guys with the same vaccine they gave the jockeys.
By the way, what's with this you needing money stuff? I have it on good authority you are a very wealthy guy what with your vig being bigger than most people's bets, and lighting up the board with all those winners all year. They tell me you've been lighting cigars with those $20 bills you get from the pick packages. :-)
