    heh ... I don't, really. But it's kind of fun to be listening to Brahms 2, live, with the Twins game on in the background. Gives new meaning to cross-culture.

    That was really underhanded. He thought he was betting against you. Not against Chief.

    I was a big fan of Brahms 2 Live Crew. Had all their 8 tracks.

    I made a Vegas bet before the season started. If the Twins win 68 then the bet is a tie and I get my money back If the Twins win more than 68 then I get my money back plus more. At this point, I would be glad to get just the 68, mainly because this would provide an excuse to go to Vegas,

    Very good. I owe you that drink. Bear in mind Brian's anecdote above though; I just learned that a road trip to the AFL this year is suddenly pretty unlikely for me.

    Bearing in mind Brian's anecdote, if you buy me a beer I'll drink it but then eventually give it back to you. It'll be a good lesson to learn.

    I wonder how much the market affects these numbers. I think that Vegas adjusts the numbers if too many people are betting either the over or the under.

    Yeah, undoubtedly. But they never seem to have to move the numbers much. If an NFL game moves a point that's a huge move.

    I can think of two meanings to this: urine, or Antabuse. The good natured ribbing would end depending on which you meant.

    I don't know how you guys can live Pacific Time.

    You guys do realize that you are making the world wait for you people to get to bed!

    My recollection from seeing a game there last year is that he really crowds the plate too.
