Episode 31

August 23rd, 2008

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! So in-keeping with my “fool-ish” theme, I reckon betting on outsiders, horses, greyhounds, Sven still being England manager next year or anything that is not a “near certainty” is foolish. And even though I have done it at times (and got away with it at times) it is not a recipe for success in the betting game.

So lately I have been sticking to my stated strategy and it has been paying off. My latest bet for instance was that Argentina would beat Ecuador in their World Cup qualifying match last night. And although I cannot find the score or any mention of the match anywhere, Blue Square informs me that I won (and so therefore did Argentina). Another 22p in the piggy bank then.
