The Gambler – Oscar Overload

No not this gambler. And not the creepy plastic-like-thing Kenny turned into either.

It is difficult for me, the host of this Oscar pool, to say I am not advocating gambling so I will not. Go ahead and blow all your kids savings if you want…either way none of us will be able to afford more than 2 years at a JUCO so why not?  So if you are looking for a unique way to MAKE money maybe take this Academy Award knowledge and test it in Las Vegas!

That’s right, lets put up some Vegas odds to add to the excitement.  And no I am not a bookie….however side prop bets are never ignored….anyone want to bet against their better half?  Just wondering.

And Vegas says the winner is…
