Survey Thursday – Superbowl Betting Results?

February 5, 2009

* How did you do in your Superbowl bets?

Please do not post your losses if it will get you in trouble with the wife/husband/gf/bf/friend/loan shark/parents. *grin* And by no means does this mean I condone betting as a regular activity. Personally, I don’t really like to do big cash bets – especially if it’s between friends – because, like they say, money is the root of all evil. 🙂 I’m more of a “for bragging rights,” plate lunch bet kinda guy, just to keep things interesting.

But since I was in the betting capital of the world for Super Bowl weekend just 4 short days ago, I put a cool 100 to the test for Arizona (with a spread of 7). Zona lost, but by just 4 (27-23) so I was in the money baby! I got $180 back, netting $80. Not bad, but it was a small consolation for the $100 (and a full week of plate lunches I owe my co-worker) I lost with my Penn pick the night before.

So that’s my “damage.” How’d you do?


Results from last week (BJ Penn or Georges St. Pierre?)

  • BJ Penn: 14 (DA WINNAH!)
  • Georges St. Pierre: 1

Happy Survey Thursday y’all! It’s almost Aloha Friday!!!

Gamble With Me – It’s a Sure Bet

May 1, 2008

Ever heard of a sure thing? I have. It’s called Betting with Ed.

Last season, I came in dead last in our Fantasy Football league (trading Adrian Peterson probably didn’t help my cause. – Stop laughing!). This season, I have yet to come close in our weekly American Idol pool. In our NBA Playoff brackets, I’m tied for last (I had Phoenix taking it all. Again, stop laughing!).

Don’t get me wrong. I’m no gambling fool. In fact, when I go to Vegas, I barely set foot near the tables. I’d much rather snowboard or feed my face at the buffet. When I do gamble (usually just $21 per day on Megabucks, Keno or a little Blackjack action), I feel like I’m wasting money, and with a mortgage and wedding to pay for, every penny counts these days. :

But yeah, if you’re looking for the highest ROI around, talk to me. It’ll be like taking candy from a baby, baby.

Since this was such a short and sweet post, I started working on adding a MMA TV Programming Schedule to include in here, but da buggah started to get HUGE! I’ll work on it some more and make a post out of it soon. I’m hoping it’ll help you MMA fans stay on top of errthing.

Oh yeah, and by the way, my AroundHawaii.com article just got published today. It’s on that Kapahulu Izaka-ya favorite of ours Tokkuri Tei. Check it out mmmkay?
