Once I went on a bender with 2 friends. One had just got divorced and the other was "kind of single" like me. We started on Dec 24th and ended on Dec 26th. I seriously missed Xmas... had no idea it went by. At the time I "kind of" had a long distance girlfriend who's Bday was on Dec 24th. I didn't call or anything. I never heard the end of that one for months! Needless to say, the relationship didn't work out.

Didn't affect anything. He missed 'em both.

I wonder if Vegas would ever allow odds on John Daly getting drunk and arrested at Hooters.

I know a bookie that'll take any bet... I'll check on that for you Ken!

You guys see that if you bet on Philly, you won game 5?

MGM/Mirage apparently is waiting until the end of the game tonight to pay out.

When I was in Vegas in August I went to like 5 books trying to get them to set me an over/under for September Mets wins...would have taken the under, but no one was down for it. Got my $5 slip for the Phillies to win the World Series sitting here, though.

Most of my time in sports books that trip was coming up with crazy parlays that were never going to come close to hitting. The last day there I realized I didn't lose any money yet on my beloved Phillies.

Yeah, I goof around with 5 team parleys all the time and I ALWAYS come up one short... classic.

This weekend I think I'll do a 4 team.

I usually bet 3 teams straight up and then throw in a 5 team parlay for fun.
