Early Baseball Betting Angle

March 31, 2008

Mentioned yesterday about a baseball wagering opportunity to consider. The Boston Red Sox are of course the defending World Series champions and have been dealt about as cruel a hand to start the season as any baseball team could. (Phil Hellmuth would be whining like crazy) By now you know they had to fly to [...]

Final Four Dance Card is Filled Today

March 30, 2008

In the end, Louisville made three critical turnovers after tying the game at 59 and North Carolina lathered in the embrace of a pro-Tar Heels crowd to beat Louisville by 10. If I made a mistake in taking the Cardinals, it was underestimating the impact of the crowd. I was well aware UNC was 24-1 [...]

Elite 8 Saturday

March 29, 2008

Four blowouts last night, all equally impressive. Stephen Curry is such a good shooter and scorer for Davidson, yet the defense was the got my attention.

Outsourcing Baseball

March 28, 2008

Neglected to mention I thought it was a sad commentary on major league baseball to play opening games of the season in Japan.

Sunday Tournament Action

March 23, 2008

Just can’t get started in this year’s tournament, still looking to close strong. Really could kick myself for taking Duke yesterday, since when I was watching the Blue Devils struggle to beat Belmont, I turned to the guy I was with and said this team is finished. Unfortunately, it was one of those instances of [...]

Day Two NCAA Thoughts

March 22, 2008

If you had spent all day and all night in Ybor City among the local bars and restaurants and came home to turn on SportsCenter, you couldn’t have imagined that FOUR double digit seeds would have pulled four outright upsets in nearby St. Pete’s. Western Kentucky couldn’t miss and Drake didn’t get back on defense [...]
