I played Pro-line twice about 20 years ago! First time I won 10 bucks, enough for a 6 pack of beer at the time! Played once more after but won nothing! That's my sports betting experience.

It’s important to emphasize that the Supreme Court’s decision has no immediate impact on existing League rules relating to sports wagering, and particularly, wagering involving NHL games.
This feels like it is directed at the players...When someone states there will be no "immediate" impact it is implying that there very well amy be some other unforeseen, or even foreseen, changes on the way...

Proofread what you put out there please. (e5)

Mine is almost exactly the same.

I was very excited for ProLine. Won a couple, lost more than I won.

It made me realize that a lot more random and unexpected things happen in sports than we realize.
I went to Niagara falls casino once. I got 10.00 in quarters and played some slots. I won 110.00. So I cashed it out, and kept my remaining 5 bucks or so in quarters and used it to pay for dinner.

I definitely do not have the gambling addiction gene.

Gary and the Charlatans might have to stop influencing the outcomes of games?

People are saying this should allow Pete into the Baseball Hall of Fame. NOPE, dude did wrong. Knew he did. Didn't come clean and continually lied about it. DONE!

There was a time where Bettman was talking about wanting a cut of the money bet on hockey. Not sure how that is really going to work, but I'm sure that's what he'll be trying

I prefer using bodog. A lot more options and better odds.

His gambling had nothing to do with his ability and stats as a baseball player, he should go to the hall on those merits not for his coaching career.

If Barry Bonds ever ends up in hall , then something is seriously wrong with the system....

He didn't really say that, did he?

it's in a meme, so it must be true?

It just seems like a much bigger deal would have been made of it if it were true. Whatever, still hilarious and likely to be at least partially true.

Or maybe the Russian troll factory strikes again?
