Episode 32

August 24th, 2008

Mixed fortunes at the weekend. Celtic actually drew 2-2 after being 2-0 down until late in the second half. Quite a shock that one. Also, my long-term outstanding bet that Arsenal would do the FA Cup/Premiership double is no longer outstanding following Man United’s victory at Villa Park. Not too bothered about that because, as [...]

OK we all know what day it is. And yes many people would consider gamblers to be fools so this is our day! Have a great day all you gambling fools out there!

Ok, ok – yes I know Best Mate is a horse. And a damn good ‘un at that! Made me a few bob after all. Trouble is I stupidly backed a couple of nags in the 2 o’clock race while I was waiting for the Gold Cup to start and they both lost. Then later [...]

I’m fast coming to the conclusion that I really am not very good at this. When I put the bet on Real beating Zaragoza I thought it was a Spanish League game. Turns out to be the Spanish Cup Final! Everyone knows that cup finals are unpredictable and anything can happen on the day – [...]
