The over/under on Steve Bartman references
I was in Las Vegas, talking to a potential client's board of directors. After my talk, I went to several sports books to lay down a $5 bet for my brother, Chris. The oddsmakers hadn't given the Cubs any odds because they didn't know who they would play this week in the division series. However, there was one oddsmaker who had a unique bet on how many times the broadcasters would mention Steve Bartman during each game. The over and under on this was five times. It was tempting, but I passed it for some more keno tickets.
