Masters in November! Imagine how crowded sports may be September, October, November if we get back to 'normal'?

I know Augusta National is known for making their azaleas bloom whenever they choose. This year will be a challenge!

I have heard you can bet on virtual camel races from the middle ease. And other "virtual" sports in various places. Good grief just go play a slot!

That dog bone commentary is either really funny or else I've gone entirely bonkers.
Perhaps both.

I think back to earlier American society and think of the very high impact gambling had. Even at Pearl Harbor that quick-thinking bugler who did not want to blow the normal 8:00am call and indicate a false state of normalcy decided to blow "Parade to the Post" because he knew everyone on the base listened to the horse races being called on the radio networks.

Well, often slot machines with their fake "horse" races might just as well depict fake camels. The nearest slots are about a mile or so from me, but the nearest camel race is on my Chrome Book.

I get the idea of camel races. Why not in the desert? But virtual camel races? I'd sooner bet on NFL Exhibition games.

I'm now a Bubba Wallace fan. He is an African-American NASCAR driver. His public response to Kyle Larson using the "N" word was refreshing. Condemned him for using it, but will be able to forgive him. Did not speak without thinking first. Kudos to Bubba.

Funny thing about those fixed fake horse races. Even if people know its just as fixed as a slot machine, people would rather have the same amount of money buy some suspense!
