The internet has taken gambling on sports to a whole new level. People love playing online poker which in turn has made poker a marquee television event on every sports network in North America.
And of course you can bet on anything and everything regarding hockey nowadays. I do not mean just wagering on the winner and loser. No, you can put money down on everything from who will score a short-handed goal to how many saves any goalie will make in the 2nd period.
It's a weird and wacky world. But now it's gotten even wackier.
I recently saw a website post these odds:
Will either Stu Grimson, Chris Nilan or Jim Thomson officially file a lawsuit against Don Cherry before October 31st, 2011?
In case you missed it, Don Cherry accused the three former NHL goons of being hypocritical pukes who wanted fighting out of the game because it led to destroyed lives of substance abuse and mental illness. The three took great offense to that, saying they never said that at all, and that Cherry needs to apologize. The three are exploring legal options.
It's hard to imagine being able to wager on that shinny soap opera, especially when I am not confident enough to put down 5 bucks on the Hawks over the Jets tonight.
