Kick down the door and carry me away

Yesterday’s scary event was the suspension of my Internet gambling account. I called up the gambling company and they said that the state of Illinois had asked them to suspend all the Illinois accounts.

This story has what might be a temporary happy conclusion. Last night, I was able to log into my account, and this morning I got down for my weekend bets: a four-team NFL parlay, a five-team NFL progressive parlay, a five-team English Premier parlay, and just to spice things up, a Mets and Tigers parlay on today’s baseball.

I suppose the police will kick down my door any moment and arrest me. At least I’ll have a little gambling action my first weekend in jail. I hope they let me take my clothes out of the drier before they cart me away.

Meanwhile, the President and Congress sit on their collective asses while hell, war, death, and destruction reign in Iraq. Oh well, they made some Christian Blue Noses happy in Podunk, USA.

I ain’t bitter. Don’t get that idea.

I'm glad I didn't put odds on it.

For me, this recalls a scene from the movie "Night Shift" with Michael Keaton:

"They banned me from the casino"

"Were you up?"

"No, but they knew I was good"

They know you're good, Lynn.

I remember that movie and wish you had mentioned earlier. I lost my baseball parlay yesterday, and I need to Liverpool to score a goal in the next 10 minutes or I can shred that ticket too.
