Someone asked me the other day, and I want to see everybody's take on this one:

If you were able to see WHEN ONLY ONE EVENT will happen in your lifetime. Would you use that power to see WHEN THE WHITE SOX WILL WIN THE WORLD SERIES?

I would say no, becuase half the fun of every season is watching your team play through 162 games. If you knew your team was going all the way, the season wouldn't be nearly as enjoyable.

Are you the same guy that asked Pat Riley, "If someone were to tell you that if you shaved your head you would win the NBA Championship, would you do it"?

Let me know who is going to win ever NFL game this weekend. I'll be the 12 team parlay. I'll max my credit cards, take all my equity out of my house, sell my entire stock portfolio, borrow every penny I can, and bet the TRI. $500mm should be about enough to get JR to sell, so I only need about 500,000 to bet to win enough to buy the team.

Now the truth is that having me poor shmo like me winning the WS would not do anything to get the team any closer to winning. Our salalry structure and revenue model is not ample enough for us to be competitive with the Yanks/Bostons of the world. But it would still be fun to own the team.

Wouldn't you rather want to know when you are going to die? AUGH, I hate these metaphysical-speculative threads! Can we talk about Angelina Jolie instead? :unsure:

To hell with excitement, hopefully the Sox would be like 35:1 that year...I'd put down at least 20,000 on them. Plus I'd tell everyone the Sox are going all the way, then watch it happen and be a bad a$$. I would get so many chicks... :cool:

As you kjnow, the betting line changes as vegas looks at the season. I'm guessing that the sox dont look so hot right when the season ends betting wise, and you dump all the money in, provided you knew when they would win. I think teh 2003 marlins were 200:1 in november 2002.

No! I want to have some hope every year.


Actually if you know Greek Mythology, the ability to see the future was the one evil that did not escape Panora's Box. For without that evil, we always have hope.
