I know a few people bet on the Knights at the beginning of the season for fun, their $5 will get them a few grand if they win it all.

That's what counts now. 

In 1996 the woman and I couldn't be stopped at winning. We had $29,000 in govenment W2's. You get those when you win $1,200 or more from the machines.

I played mostly Blackjack and you never get those W2's when you win over the 12 hundred, so a lot of my winnings the government never saw.

Half way into '97 our luck changed and so now we don't gamble. We have no state income tax here in Nevada because the gamblers pay it for us.

The one who organizes it, that's the winner of any lottery.

My SIL and family are on the East coast right now (Mediterranean, you know :P). They were watching that Real Madrid vs. Liverpool match and they are all surrounded by Englanders...

There is a ticket out there that someone put down $400 at 300 to 1 for them to win the Cup, 120,000 grand.

Did they cheer when their team scored?

Pulpofeira

She would have, for sure. But their feelings for RM are not very warm, they support Barcelona (like trysts, btw)

But it is vs. an English team, after all.

Well who actually won Pulp, Real Madrid or Liverpool?

Nice tune Frank, never heard it until now.

Another sad tune Frank. Kansas "Dust In The Wind"

That tune has haunted me ever since it first came out in 1977.
