The Vegas Trials

Well with less than a week to go, my embargo on college football is about to begin. However, I have been riddled with temptation upon temptation. I recently went to a trip to Las Vegas and I gambled at the Venetian casino. Than I came across this thing of beauty.

After wiping away the tears of joy, I realized there are plenty of college bets to make. Do you know how hard that is?!?! Michigan State had a line 8 1/2 and great lines to win their division. Free money and social dependency to college football was sitting right there. However, I resisted and left gambling to the pros, pro football that is. I made a Super Bowl bet on my NFL team, the Detroit Lions.  Is it a waste of money to bet on a team that hasn’t made an actually Super Bowl, let alone win? Yes, yes, and yes. Hopefully, this semi-foolish bet will keep my eye on the NFL ball and not wander towards college football.

On a final note, when buying a plastic football filled with margarita, please keep that football dry or it will get slick from the condensation and bad things will happen.
