I am now 3-4 on my mock baseball betting, with last night's game being the 3rd time in 7 games that I have either won or lost an over/under by a 1/2 run. After being 5-0 in the top of the 1st inning, the All-Star Game stayed under 8 1/2 total runs - HA HA... (8-0 final, National League). I'll post my Friday 'bet' on Friday since there is no MLB action until then.
Speaking of betting, I have a semi poker-related story here from when I was a dealer and was treating sports betting as more of a hobby. My favorite cocktail waitress that I worked with on the graveyard shift at the Riviera was a new football fan (surely influenced by the talk about football betting among myself and my close dealer friends). As it happens, she was on a multi-week run of winning parlays and I wasn't doing as well as her when this story took place... I was just THE KING of filling out two-dollar parlay tickets, and I made a comment to her that instead of tossing her chips for her excellent table service in the poker room, I might just start giving her parlay tickets that I had purchased. She paused, raised her eyebrow, smiled, and responded, "I'll just take the money..." ;) Have a great day and I'll see you again on Friday.
