Kendall Schler - Marathon Cheater
April 17, 2015

There has to be a special place in Hell for these kinds of people, don’t you think?

You may have even heard experts bragging about their success rates on the radio, imploring you to call them for inside information.  But what does it all mean? ”How to bet on sports: Spread, betting lines and game totals”.

The Kentucky Derby is set for May 2 at Churchill Downs in Louisville and already a trio of horses has emerged as the top challengers in the ‘Run for the Roses’.  While many horse racing experts consider the tentative field for the 2015 Derby to be very deep and talented at the same time there’s been little to no support for any of the ‘also rans’.  The two Bob Baffert…

According to an unsolicited email I got this week (but one that I still have complete confidence in) more bets are placed on the Super Bowl this weekend than on any other single day sporting events.

January 25, 2015

If you believe Wikipedia (and who, under 20 doesn’t?) Patriots coach Bill “I Am Not a Crook” Belichick has a bachelor’s degree in economics from Wesleyan University he earned back in 1975. So, as some us determined from his press conference this week where he tried to explain “the science” Coach B does not have a degree in one of the applied science. Or even a minor. Probably took some science…

And the DeflateGate story just keeps getting better. Just a day after Bill “Read My Lips” Belichick claimed the Patriots followed all NFL rules (we’re surprised he wasn’t struck by lighting) there are reports that the NFL was actually trying to catch New England cheating! Here’s more on the story from YardBarker: Believe it or not, the outrage surrounding Deflategate will eventually fizzle out. And when it does, no one…
