In the UK a man wagered 1 dollar and won 2 million dollars. You have to love this story. This guy, who at present wishes to remain unknown, wagered the correct winner of 8 different races on the Friday horse races, he bet 1 dollar to win 2 million and hit the biggest parlay I’ve ever heard of. The first horse that won was named “Isn’t That Lucky” and the last was “A Dream Come True”. The best thing is, he didn’t even know he won the next day because he was back at it on Saturday making more crazy parlays…where he didn’t win a single won, losing $5.
I gotta start hitting the track more and trying this. Sure the odds are against you, but they have to be better than Powerball or Keno. Perhaps i’ll try this when I go to Vegas in April. Ohhh yea.
There are 295 other poorly wittily named teams participating this year with 16 teams currently tied for first place with records of 6-0 after the first day of competition. Two more days of this contest are left for one team to win the $50,000 first place prize.
Everyone loves a good drinking game and even if this does have the possibility of being the worlds biggest frat party I cannot help but wish I and all of the Deuce members could be out there with them drinking beer for the chance to win money. Ladies and gentlemen, what the fuck is more American than that?
I love these clips of OJ Simpson’s attorney just constantly getting interrupted by the toothless guy to his left. His facial expressions and interruptions are priceless. He acts like he must be the president of the OJ Simpson fan club. Just hilarious. Fan IQ has the dirt on him “The man standing behind Yale Galanter, O.J. Simpson’s lawyer, is Jake Byrd, a comedian who can sometimes be seen on Bill Simmons’ friend Jimmy’s television show (that would be Jimmy Kimmel Live).” Fantastic!
Kobe got what you need. $21,000 of Cristal to be exact. TMZ reports that Kobe Bryant ran up a $21,000 tab at the BLUSH Boutique in Vegas Friday night. He saw poker player Antonio “The Magician” Esfandiari buy two bottles of $1400 Cristal and decided to one up him by throwing down for five bottles. The Magician responded with 10 bottles. Kobe wasn’t going to be shown up for the bitch he is when it comes to trade talk. He threw down for 15 bottles and left the club.
I can’t imagine Kobe cheated on the whole crowd that night and was trying to make it up to them Nessa-style. Maybe he thought he would do what Shaq does for a change. Maybe he figured he could beat a poker player since he can’t beat Lakers management.
As the football season winds down in Europe, we wonder what we’re going to do during the offseason besides join in the absurd rumormongering that goes on in the European press. You can expect nothing less from us. Here’s hoping that overpaid, under-educated footballers will get themselves in stupid, embarrassing situations for our amusement.
Get Out Of My Belly It looks like the pressure’s getting to Fat Freddy Shepherd. Every good thing that happens to Newcastle seems to be followed by a corresponding cockpunch and twist. Every big name signing seems to drop as though Screwface put some bad mojo on them. The casualty list topped by Obafemi Martins, Michael Owen, Damien Duff and Scott Parker is rather impressive. Shepherd met with former Bolton manager Big Sam Allardyce at Claridge’s in London yesterday. Allegedly an offer to manage Newcastle was made and accepted with some details yet to be worked out. Both sides agreed that they were close to an agreement that would have Big Sam take over the “big club” otherwise known as Newcastle United.
Once Shepherd has his man, he can return his focus to Owen who has a £9million buyout clause in his contract. It’s rumored that he wants a return to Liverpool which he left to win silverware. he hasn’t won anything while Liverpool has won the Champions League and FA Cup. Shepherd isn’t too pleased about this especially as the club has stood by him through all his injury problems.
If you didn’t hear Shepherd’s response, he said, “I’ll fucking carry him back for you…for £9million”. Solid Freddy solid. Good to see he has a sense of humor about the situation.
The Las Vegas Sun reports that the Las Vegas Sports and Entertainment Group is trying to bring an MLS franchise to Vegas by 2010. The group “hopes to build a high-tech, state-of-the-art stadium with a retractable roof that will be linked with a casino.”
The group would ask for no public financing and the stadium would be available for other uses besides soccer.
There’s no team name but the name “Silver Spurs” is being tossed around like a dwarf. No team should have anything in common with Tottenham Hotspur. The Deuce suggests the name Hustlers. It works on so many (two) levels.
By the way, does anyone know where we can find Player’s Club cards? We’ve looked everywhere.
