HERE’S A PROPOSITION FOR EDDIE MURPHY, PARIS HILTON, AND MICHAEL MOORE

Posted by HG on May 14, 2007

Here’s something for all of the degenerate gamblers people that like having a little action on everything. The folks over at BoDog.com have prop bets for several non sports items. Here are some of the notables:

HOW MANY NIGHTS WILL PARIS HILTON SPEND IN JAIL?

  • 0-2  4/1
  • 3-7  3/1
  • 8-15  4/1
  • 16-30  3/2
  • 31+  6/5

WILL IT BE PROVEN THAT EDDIE MURPHY IS SCARY SPICE’S BABY’S DADDY?

  • YES -300
  • NO  -200

WHO WILL WIN AMERICAN IDOL 6?

  • Blake Lewis  9/2
  • Jordin Sparks  5/9
  • Melinda Doolittle  11/5

WILL ALBERTO GONZALES STILL BE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES ON JULY 4TH, 2007?

  • YES +375
  • NO  -650

I’m not much of a gambler anymore but I would have like to have seen:

Will PacMan Jones be arrested before the start of the NFL season?

Which member of the Phoenix Suns will go The Last Boy Scout on Bruce Bowen?

How many days until Lou Pinella’s next meltdown?

I know some of you out there have some crap you wanna bet on.. Lemme know about it.

GOLF+POKER= MICHAEL JORDAN HEAVEN

Posted by HG on May 1, 2007

People are never satisfied. You can give a guy a Ferrari and he’s gonna wanna add a jet engine to make it faster. Now people are combining two ways to lose money… Golf and poker. This isn’t some liquored up guys during a bachelor party weekend jerking around on the links. Two networks are running with the idea.

NBC will air the World Series of Golf, a made for tv event, on June 23rd and 24th. Fox is raising the stakes with the Ultimate Game at Wynn Las Vegas which will air June 9th and 10th. The “Ultimate Game” was originally thought up over 10 years ago by former NFL quarterback Steve Bartkowski.

“We were watching a PGA Tour event, and someone was standing over a 5- or 6-foot putt. One of the guys at the table commented, ‘That’s no pressure. If he misses this putt, the worst he can do is second place. Pressure is when you’re playing for your own cash.’ “

Both the NBC and Fox version of Golf/Poker (Goker?? Polf??) require the entrants to put up their own money. The Fox entry fee is 50k apiece for the 40 contestants. The 40 is whittled down to 12 through match play, and then there’s a 36 hole stroke-play tournament for the 2 million dollar check.

The NBC tournament requires 10 grand from each of the 180 participants with the winner taking home $250,000. Players can bring a caddy, a poker player, or financial adviser with them. Here’s how the NBC golf/poker game works:

Each player starts with $10,000 and antes $100 on the first hole. The ante doubles every three holes (that means holes 16-18 require a $3,200 ante). On the first tee, each player is assigned a number in a rotation that determines the hitting (and betting) order for the rest of the hole (and round), regardless of who is away. In this hit-and-bet format, once the players have hit their tee balls, the player who led off leads off the betting. A player can check, raise, fold — and even go “all-in.” The betting follows the rotation, just as on the poker felt. If you don’t like where your golf ball is, you fold — and lose only what you have bet to that point. If players who are still in the betting action tie at the end of the hole, the pot is split. Players are eliminated when they do not have enough left to ante; the game continues until one golfer has all the money.

I hope you followed all of that because I’m not gonna copy and paste it again. I hate repeating myself.

So, if you’re an over 21 amatuer that has never been fully exempt on the PGA, Champions, Nationwide or European tours, and you have 10 or 50 thousand to waste, this is the game for you. If you’re ballin on a budget, you can meet me over at the $5 dollar blackjack table. COCKTAIL!!

HE DIDN’T BET ON THIS

Posted by HG on April 20, 2007

calvin-ayre-and-jim-mcmahon.jpg

Billionaire Calvin Ayre sold his possessions for 10grand in order to start BoDog.com. Sure he’s had some problems with the British Columbia Securities Commission, but who hasn’t. The 45 year old, Canadian, son of a pig farmer is living the life, even if he has to worry about setting foot on U.S. soil and being stalked. I can understand a woman losing her mind over a billionaire. A dude with that much money makes Captain Save ‘Em seem like corporal punishment. Unfortunately for Calvin, his stalker is the 60 year old brother of his sister’s baby’s daddy…Patrick Tyrone Roberts.

PTR or Paddy isn’t the average stalker. He’s a convicted weed smuggler, a pilot, a Dutch prison vet and a possible snitch.. Plus he can’t leave Canada due to his problems with the law. His beef with Calvin Ayre is the result of a custody battle between Ayre’s sister and Roberts’ brother. The pair were together for a brief amount of time… Calvin’s sister didn’t find out she was pregnant with twins until after the break-up. Calvin filed a petition with the court to support his sister during the custody hearings, and she eventually won full custody of the twins. Roberts has been pissed ever since. Oh yeah, did I mention that the twins are in COT DAMN college now?

Since Paddy Roberts can’t leave the country of Canada, he’s had to cyberstalk Ayre. He has allegedly gone on forums for mixed martial arts, gambling, and music posting as multiple users and having conversations between all of the users bashing Calvin Ayre. He even started his own website:

In an effort to infiltrate the online gambling industry, Paddy Roberts even set up the fake online poker news website called PokerBiz411.com and tried to get the Bodog Press team to schedule an interview with Ayre. Pretty hilarious considering the ill conceived website was already bashing Calvin with Paddy’s self written and multi-personality propaganda at the time of the interview request.

Paddy Roberts claims that he is simply trying to protect the online gambling industry from a serial fraudster. We here at YBB say he’s a hater.
