I know due to all the local attention I got for MY BET, most people wanted me to lose…
I had tons of calls last week during the Packer upset from "concerned" friends. Meaning their real thoughts were…I HOPE YOU CRASH AND BURN. Hey, that’s human nature.
Remember, almost nobody most of you readers know has EVER placed a bet in a sports book in Vegas.
Thus the confusion over the who, what, when, where and why of many of my teaser bets. Most people only bet with friends in pools or not at all. One percent or less have ever made a real bet in Vegas with a sports concern. Sure, they’ve lost at blackjack – so did my grandma.
But only the big boys dare to dare.
Speaking of which, I think Johnny Dare was pulling for me deep down.
Anyway, I’m not mad at the haters and the doubters. That’s human nature. It was a fun ride. My brother is in on the bet and we may just go out there and party with it for a few days.
It hurts more when you lose than how good it feels when you win.
Somewhere the birds are chirpping; somewhere kids are playing – but here in mighty Mudville the mighty Chiefs have struck out!!!!!!
Sorry, losers lose.
P.S. They have built a good defense to move forward with and one day with a good quarterback they will soar.
Chin up and Merry Christmas!
