Who wants to take that long shot gamble?

Readers of State Street are not shocked to find that there is gambling going on here.

You cannot beat the bookie. The reason is simple: he does not give you fair odds. However, going into this weekend I was as close to dead even on my sports betting over the last year as you can get. I have had my share of good luck.

Even though I know I cannot win, I study the teams and the statistics as though I could. I should just pick teams at random and wait for the inevitable result.

I am crazy.

I do not bet much money though, so it is harmless good sport worth the price of admission to me. Many dreams are long shot gambles, but we could not live without them.
