Patron Pushing Luck

Post by FAA »

A sports book patron sitting next to me yesterday bet $500 on the NY Giants to lead after one quarter, as the line had gone down and he always went with the Vegas trend. Flush with cash, he bet $200 on them to lead at halftime. The LA Rams went on a scoring spree and he stalked off disgusted.

I have been a Giants fan since I was 10 years old-59 years ago. NEVER bet on the Giants. Use your head, no emotions.

Being a Giants fan convinced me early on not to waste my money betting on sports. I've made two bets on them in my life and even though I won both of them I doubt there will be a third bet.
I started following them in 1966 and the first twenty years was rough. The next twenty-five years were much better but the last decade has been dreadful. They are as bad today as they've been in a generation.

Yep, Waiting for a plane to fly over the Meadowlands again with the banner "10 years of lousy football, we've had enough"

I sent my friend a text fifteen minutes before the game. It was a pic of the Giants Helmet and a banner go giants. I also wrote……one and four pretty poor. Two and four would be at at least one more. Guess I jinxed them. Never do any sports betting. It was 12:47 to be exact.

I don’t either, despite my frequent immersion in these degenerate dens. I fear a slippery slope. Why didn’t he just leave after the first quarter and enjoy his profit? He had to give back 40% of it. Let sleeping dogs lie.
