3 cheers for JL....



Yeah, but what does ten grand matter to a manly man who makes 40 billion a year....

He has only stated that he makes more than you, mkl. And I for one,even though I would never bet an amount of money that would have any real impact on anything I do, get tremendous enjoyment at winning, be it this single bet we are talking about, or a session of pai gow, or whatever. And, mkl, yes I believe that if JL continues to bet even money games while paying a vig he will probably lose over the long run. But right now, he won. And, it IS possible, that he had some information not available to you, that essentially turned his bet into an advantage play. I like this. JL is now an AP!!!!!

His claims will be up to forty billion in a few weeks (assuming he doesn't get kicked off this board, of course).

And we KNOW from reading JL's posts (which are the epitome of common sense and logic, especially since they contain NO "assertions"), that there IS NO SUCH THING as an AP.

I told you mkl would be beside himself! God loves all men, whether they play football or speak with a lisp.

Wizard I have to make a phone call to make sure I can write what it was that helped me make this amount of bets on the Over. It shouldn't be a big deal because it really didn't seem to be TOO much of a factor, but I'll post it as soon as I am able.

You told us that, but I actually barely care one way or another, so you were wrong, Jerry. Why would I give a rat's ass why some anonymous fool won a football bet based on "inside information"? That happens thousands of times a week. People win coin flips all the time.

What matters is that you now have an extra ten grand to pump into the video poker machines. Vegas, baby! I'll come along behind you and grab some of the money that you leave.

I say congrats to ya. You went out on a limb with your prediction, posted it here for all to see and comment on, and I guess you were right. It doesn't matter to me or probably anyone else if you bet $ 10 or $ 10,000.

Thank you guys, and the comment from johnny is really the proper way to look at it. The bet amount really doesn't make a difference to anyone but myself, but the pick and reasons for the pick do around here.

I came across surprise info from simple shop and football talk that Justin King & Darian Stewart were both under the weather but were going to play regardless. They're important in the defensive backfield for the Rams, and against a power offense like Atlanta they'd need to be in A-1 shape, which they were not. Thus, in addition to my own game analysis which I put up prior to the game (and which held more importance for my bet than anything else) making a large bet here when I almost never do, seemed logical. I guess I just wanted to feel like I could benefit from something few others had the chance to benefit from today. Either way, it was doubly satisfying watching mkl squirm over the fact that I made the right pick (and won a few bucks along ith it!)

I was rooting for you all the way, Jerry. We APs need that loser's money back in the gambling economy (and that's where it's going--the only Christmas present will be to the casinos).

I said that I wouldn't be upset if you won, in fact I said that several times, but I knew that you would have to make some asshole comment about me, even so. You're a loser who just happened to GUESS right on a football bet. Nothing more than that. You will lose that money back playing bad video poker badly.

What I find so amusing is that you thought that your trucker buddy was aware of the under-the-weather players, but that NONE OF THE SPORTS BOOKS KNEW THAT, and they didn't adjust the line accordingly!

Of course, all the above withstanding, I doubt very much that you made this bet as you described it. It was very likely more like $100--if you made a bet at all. In other words, you're probably lying.

You're spending an awful lot of time calling me a liar and fraud AFTER I won the bet! What were the odds of that?

(See how you can mock someone in just a few words instead of writing an essay??) Learn teacher, learn.....
