El Pad's Weekly Betting Forum

Cub fans must really love Big Z. Standing ovation as he left the mound down 7-0. Don't cry Joshua. The sun will come up tomorrow. Orgeon State is a bitch to deal with huh? Pitt upsets South Florida, Dickie V was on ESPN talking rays baseball, shoot me. Oh and thanks for showing up Milwaukee. Now I have to sit through a Phillies NLCS. Thanks.

Where I Stand
Cash: (142.50)
Picks: 14-11

Yikes, nailed 3 out of 4 but the wally don in me wagered it all on the Jax/Hous and Phi/Chi game. Now I'm in a bind. Let's see if I can wiggle out of it.

Oklahoma -27 over Baylor
Question: If you saw a guy on the street drop a $100 bill on the floor and he didn't realize it would you pick it up and keep it? Same principal here. (Straight Bet : $100)

Florida State @ Miami under 43
Under is 24-8 in MIAMI last 32 home games. Under is 13-6 in MIAMI last 19 conference games. ANNNNND besides last year 37-29 Miami victory the prior scores have all been under 40, dating back to 2004. (Straight Bet : $50)

USC - 17 over Oregon
Blowout. Revenge for last year. Anger from last week. Lock it up. (Straight Bet : $150)

Pro me

Colts -3 over Houston
First home game for Houston since Ike slapped Tina. Peyton took reps everyday to get shit straight. Told his o-line to be cool. And even bought a wallet that said bad motherfucker on it.
(Straight Bet : $150)


Baltimore +3 over Tennessee

Hunch. If Baltimore can plug the running game early, which they are capable of doing, I see a couple of turnovers that the Ravens will cash in on early. I think they upset the Titans, give them there first loss and inflict a little pain at home. Call is 24-13 with a pick six by Ed Reed. This is also the Titans first real home game. (If-Bet: $100)

Philly -6 over Wash
If bet. Not sure about it. An if bet is a wager that only gets placed if the first bet hits. So in this case what I will do is I will wager on the Ravens under an If-Bet. And If the Ravens wager hits, I will automatically have a wager on this game. It's sort of a safe fail against losing too much. Not all bookies do this because it's a courtesy. You pay triple vig because these games are on at the same time. If the Ravens don't hit I lose $130, normally with a $10 vig I lose $110. Any questions? As far as the game goes Philly hasn't lost a home game since last November. Washington coming off a high in beating Dallas.....Philly needs this game more.
(If-Bet $50)

I am golfing here tomorrow for charity, even though I don't believe in charity, there will be beer, food and I am bringing a scotch filled flask.

I'd do her. I'm sure everyone has seen her swimsuit video?

she has a swimsuit video?

Steve said...

"she has a swimsuit video?"

yea, from back in the day when she was in a beauty contest. on sec...

msn had something about a britney sex tape.

i think it was from when she wasn't looking too good though.

Beauty Contest

Plenty of junk in the trunk.

you mean go to a different barber?

Steve said...

I only caught part of of conversation from a while back.

But isn't the guy with the weekly betting column in debt due to gambling?

I love Gollum said...

political talk in my area right now

i'm staying away

Beth said...

"I want to be on her, her hokey bonics though annoys me a bit"

Don't worry, it's no secret you'd "be on her" EP.

I know what you mean about the hokey Alaska stuff though, it's getting a little overdone. But she was clearly determined to get that point across time after time last night - "I'm just like Middle America!!!!!"

Jugdish said...

How was the debate? I missed it.

Steve said...

well, I'm middle America and I don't like an idiot. (type maybe) but not talk.

Jugdish said...

I wouldn't get on Big Z too much either...did you see that second inning? They should have been out of that with one run.

Steve said...

And there are people that sound like that the poor bastards.

But if somebody votes for a VP because they "sound like me" then that's just stupid.

tem said...

HDH from steve.

WADR steve, you're so far to the left I'm not sure it's possible for you to give an unbiased opinion about the debate or Palin.

I love Gollum said...

"I wouldn't get on Big Z too much either...did you see that second inning? They should have been out of that with one run."

"you're so far to the left I'm not sure it's possible for you to give an unbiased opinion about the debate or Palin."

oh please, nobody here REALLY takes her seriously...do they?

Jugdish said...

Steve...was Bioden impressive?

I love Gollum said...

palin held her own jug, she dodged alot of questions but so did Biden

she focused on energy, taxes, and the economy, Biden crept along with the same nonsense about mcain's voting record which if your in senate for 20+ years there is going to be some inconsistencies

nothing new, and as far as i'm concerned i dont vote for vp's i vote for presidents so they can kill each other if they want but none of it really matters to me

Jugdish said...

Biden...


fat fingers------------------>

blue said...

it's been long accepted that steve is a moron

I love Gollum said...

nice work from deke and zeke last night, semi running diary of the debate was quite funny

" nobody here REALLY takes her seriously"

tem doesn't take any politician seriously.

"Bioden"

from now on i am calling him biodome.


in fact i hope tina fey and biodome have another debate with the omnibus as moderator.

This article talked about where her accent comes from.

"hell, 2 of the first 4 comments on this thread where about boning her"

Ummm, I can't exactly "bone" anybody...

Oops, I meant I can't exactly "bone" a woman.

As for men, I'm more the bonee.

"Ummm, I can't exactly "bone" anybody"

isiah thomas said...

debate last night was good and boring at the same time.

After reading Pallin's (Palin?, IDGAF) Couric interview I was expecting the worse but she held her own.

I guess I was expecting more from Biden but he was underwhelming. Pallin had a lot of HDH moments but she at least came across as a credible candidate. Biden, as expected, and as EP pointed out, did a lot of the standard "everything is bush's fault, Mclain loves bush = we're better" stuff. He also dropped a couple "that's not true" when facts were brought up about him and Osama. He seemed to get a little flustered at times and you could tell he took her too lightly.

One of the best moments was when Biden tried to do that patented Democratic double talk and point fingers and Pallin crushed him.

paraphrasing:

Biden: "I voted for the war but I'm against the war"

Biden was much better with political type speaking points but I think Pallin was better at connecting more to regular people.

isiah thomas said...

fmz was a little shook this am about the WFB/WB stuff.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"After reading Pallin's (Palin?, IDGAF) Couric interview I was expecting the worse but she held her own."



All she did was cover the spread.

Steve said...

"WADR" "HDH"

what do these mean? I know it has something to do with typos and misspeaking, but what do they stand for?

blue said...

"All she did was cover the spread."

LMC

isiah thomas said...

All she did was cover the spread.

I'm not saying she was great or anything, but pre-debate, CNN was saying that if she could basically put together coherent sentences and not look like Billy Madison during the debate then it would be a passing grade.

I'd say she greatly exceeded expectations, and at times made Biden look very, very bad.

I'd say she won the game outright, not needing any points.

isiah thomas said...

and Pallin dropped a "WADR"

Steve said...

"All she did was cover the spread."

it's not over. we're going to get more unintentional comedy out of Palin.

Just wait.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

isiah thomas said...

seeing your level of bitterness over this deke you can tell she did well.

isiah thomas said...

it's not over. we're going to get more unintentional comedy out of Palin.

Just wait.


oh yeah we will. They kept her mic open and the volume cranked pre and post debate. You know tv execs were praying she'd saying something stoopid.

Biden's mic appeared to be off.

With All Due Respect - you can say whatever you want about someone if you say this.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"seeing your level of bitterness over this deke you can tell she did well."


No, I just can't believe that there are people out there that can't see how massively stupid she is.

Keith S said...

Isn't she prepped non-stop for weeks before the debate? So nothing that was asked was new to her, it had all be covered for her. So she basically just memorized what the advisers told her to say?

Whereas with the Couric interview, she had no idea what was coming at her, which is why she sounded like a maroon (sic)

blue said...

the ups guy is calling a gov/VP candidate stupid...i find the irony in this hilarious

isiah thomas said...

Whereas with the Couric interview, she had no idea what was coming at her, which is why she sounded like a maroon (sic)

def some troof to this but I don't think they gave her the questions/topics in advance, though its not tough to figure it out or prep for general topics.

still in an hour and a half after the Couric debacle, you'd think she would have ample opportunity to screw up, and I think she avoided major screw ups.

blue said...

no due respect given

Steve said...

"Isn't she prepped non-stop for weeks before the debate? So nothing that was asked was new to her, it had all be covered for her. So she basically just memorized what the advisers told her to say?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"Isn't she prepped non-stop for weeks before the debate? So nothing that was asked was new to her, it had all be covered for her. So she basically just memorized what the advisers told her to say?"


Right. And if she didn't like the question, she just answered one that wasn't asked.

"just say what Rove taught you, no one will notice"

and don't worry deke, Osama is still going to win in a landslide.

just make sure you're here the day we get attacked again by terrorists, because "it's bush's fault" won't fly then.

Did anyone see the little tiff between O. Cabrerra and that Rays pitcher Balfour yesterday?

What was the deal with that? I didn't catch it all. Is kicking dirt at the plate supposed to be some kind of disrespect to pitchers?

isiah thomas said...

Osama is in a no lose situation if he gets elected.

things get better it was all him, things get worse "we're still digging out of the mess Bush put us in"

I love Gollum said...

"branch manager"

suite. hopefully it works out. normally they keep the working personnel. it's the big big big guns that get thrown out the door

Jugdish said...

I'm reserved to the fact that no matter who is in office, it will happen again.


It can happen under any administration, I'll give you that. I'd just rather have people in there who understand the threat and are willing to do something about it.

I love Gollum said...

"What was the deal with that? I didn't catch it all. Is kicking dirt at the plate supposed to be some kind of disrespect to pitchers?"

cabrera kicked dirt in his direction because Balfour apparently showed up Uribe whilst striking him out

blue said...

yeah, unless there's a branch of the bank across the street, then they start closing branches.

I love Gollum said...

"she left WF to go to WB about 8 months ago."

now she's back....but looks like Citi will go down fighting

I love Gollum said...

"yeah, unless there's a branch of the bank across the street, then they start closing branches."

dont think there are citibank's in AZ but if WF ends up with it then yeah maybe.

i was trying to make zeke feel better though blue, so nice work.

isiah thomas said...

that's the thing, there are no Citi's here in PHX (I don't think) but tons of WF.

Keith S said...

Yeah there's a WF on at least every other corner. Where I live, each block has either a WF or a Mormon church

tons of churches in S-Dizzle too.
