Maybe I'm the odd person out, but at 63 years old I had
never bet on a football game. Years ago beer distributors
would hand out the 'square boards' to bars and I did do that.

So, I opened an online betting thing with $500. It's taken me
two months to go down to $305. Last week I bet on a bunch of
games that the first points would be scored by a safety. I didn't
win nuttin'!

So, this week I looked at the money line and took any underdog
where $5 would get me my money back and $10 plus. Here's
what I came up with:

Bears...loss
Jaguars...loss
Dolphins...loss
Cowboys...loss
-------------
Saints...loss
Giants...WIN
Rams...loss
49ers...loss

I don't think I'll be getting any calls soon from the big casinos in Vegas
offering free nights for some high rollin' action.

I just about didn't win any! The Giants
win kept me from getting an 8 ball skunk.

down 22.75 for the day.

actually I need to add an extra dollar to the lose. I put
down a buck that all eight of the teams I picked would
win. If that would of happened the payout would have
been over $24K

Alright, I just placed my bets on which team will win the World Series. Two
National League teams had the worst, or is it best, odds to win. +20000
on the money line. I put $5 down on each so if one goes all the way I get my $5 back
plus $1000.

I can't wait to roll into Vegas in October on the Greyhound bus. If I win on either of these
two teams I'll be invited on the Tonight Show Johnny Carson re-runs!
