You guys are wrong about the Super Bowl call. Results oriented.

Lynch on caries from the 1 that season: 1 TD, total of -1 yards.

There were 109 pass attempts from the 1 in that NFL season, and that was the first one to be intercepted.

If they ran the ball four times and didn't score, everyone currently whining that the pass was the wrong call would be whining that they needed to pass at least once.

It was right to call a pass play. It was wrong to throw the ball into a sea of a dozen players

Well, they had 3 downs and one TO. So they'd have to pass once, almost for sure. Doing it there, kept all their options open. If they run there, you know the next play is a pass, almost 100%.

Wasn't even a bad play, really. The pick on the corner had to fail. Then the corner had to make an incredible play.

I, for one, am looking forward to the release of the GWAE Romes show.

Bob can surely correct me if I'm wrong, but it was my assumption the show guests are "almost" week to week with guests maybe being scheduled a couple weeks in advance. I don't know how possible it would be to have a static set schedule at that point. Things come up, plays come up, family happens, etc, so some people are available last minute while others must drop, etc, etc.

That's a fair statement.

Next week we're talking to Buddy Frank --- a slot director for many years, most notably Pechanga, a casino north of San Diego that's bigger than any in Nevada --- on how slot directors look at strong players today versus five years ago. And bunches of other things.

We have Romes coming up. We seem to be stuck with him since Aimee got outed.

We have Frank B on Superbowl prop bets on February 2. The Wizard has been invited but so far hasn't seemed interested.

We're going to interview Ed Thorp on his new book soon.

We are ALWAYS looking for knowledgeable interesting guests.

We have a couple of others "sometime soon" but nothing definite yet.

I was joking about being stuck with Romes. We very much want him on the air and Aimee was never under consideration.

I think an "interesting" question might be if he was personally aware of any "offers" his casino(s) made that he figured out could be quite +EV plays for AP's. Also, if there were any promotions they had that after the fact he thought "yeah some AP's probably got us on this..." I'd love to know the thought process of the slot director in reference to strong players and promotions =).
