After 6 years of strictly Vegas I went to Caliente Sportsbook yesterday

This is the message I sent them today.Bear in mind this is the place that I grew up betting at from superbowl 1996 to 2009It was like a little Vegas Sports Book.
to the message I sent today and those of you who have been there THEN and NOW please let me know if you agree.
How the mighty have fallen. 6 years ago the sports book was nothing short of a downtown Las Vegas sized sports book.
Good Looking girls working the greeting counter as you made your way upstairs near the Pueblo Amigo Hotel, everything maintained well, the bathrooms clean in good working order, Hot Water, All new Tables and Chairs, all new flat screen TVs mounted on the walls, Nice clean carpet.
MLB Extra Innings all the games you want to watch, NBA League Pass, NFL Sunday Ticket, ESPN GamePlan it was a sports bettors dream, 

NOW Its nothing short of trash, Sorry Caliente, I use to love you
I use to go there Every Thursday Night, Saturday and Sunday all day and night as well as every Monday night

I bet, won some lost some but I had a great time in a great atmosphere with great food.

I show up Yesterday for the 1st time in 6 years.
I now live in Moreno Valley CA, too far for me to show up regularly but I, My father and another one of my friends loved the Clippers in there game 4 match up , especially getting 5.5 points.

What do I see when I arrive
Chairs in bad bad shape
Carpets coming apart at the seems to where they could become a safety ha... [More]

Not a fan of any team but I commend the Chicago Bears

What a great hire in Marc Trestman.

If you have ever watched the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League then you know they are the New England Patriots of that League and Trestman is the man behind the curtain.

The Offense will be innovative, fast paced and deadly.
Look for many overs with the Bears next season.

ESPN Game Day something to ponder

Last year I made a pledge with myself to bet on any team where the ESPN game day crew was.

I went 9-1 ATS

I noticed this the year before and using the website I went back to 2008 and what I suspected was indeed comfirmed.

What I mean by espn game days is I checked what happened when the ESPN Gameday crew was at a school

What I found out was mind boggling to say the least.

The schools that were featured by lee corso and crew won ATS at over an 80% clip.

Will this continue?

I dont know, but so far it has been a winning formula.

I suspect that teams for some reason get really pumped up when gameday is there.

Anyone else notice this phenomenon?

Eagles are just like the 2000 Redskins

Remember how I said the Eagles were just like the 2000 Redskins and then some of you jumped my shit, called me derogatory names, called me stupid and everything else.

Now the time has come I believe for those of you who bashed my very insightfull post to come clean and admit that I was correct.

No apologies but an acknowledgment that I was indeed right.

There is a reason why paper champions are called paper champions.

Paper doesnt decide championships, play on the feild does

Character does

and a little bit of good luck along the way.

I said the packers in my opinion were still the team to beat and after 4 weeks I am not only correct regarding the hmm hmm dream team, but I was also correct regarding the packers thus far.
