Jinxes, Curses, and Karma when Betting: Locks of the Century

June 3, 2011 Leave a comment

I have nobody to blame but myself for Miami’s epic collapse last night.  I got cocky and via twitter basically proclaimed that nobody could stop me from winning.  I was staring a 5-1 maybe 6-0 record in the face mid-way through the 4th quarter.  The first rule of gambling is don’t taunt the gambling gods.  I had already nailed 3 of my 6 bets, and was looking like a prophet again.  Within in 5 minutes Dallas shooting, Lebron fade-away threes, and Eric Spoelstra coaching stole 3 wins from me.  That’s what I get.  Next time I’ll just gloat when the fat lady has sung.  Sorry America. 

Still went 3-3 for the game, not too shabby.  Live to fight another day.

Tampa Bay +130 @ Boston -150

 

Thank you JC Penney.  I was already to go back on my original claim of picking the Tampa Bay Lightning(especially because I picked them in 6), but thanks to the wicked jinx JC Penney put on the Boston Bruins I get to stick with my original prediction. 

Nice full-page ad in the Lowell Sun.  Guess they didn’t watch Game 6.  Or maybe they are going for the double jinx because they clearly bought this ad space before today.  Double jinx=me doubling down.  Tampa Bay is winning this game.  No questions asked.  The only question left is whether or not Tampa Bay can save humanity from the ginger twins lifting the Stanley Cup.  I pray yes.
