The laws barring sports gambling. Just happened.

It will be open season now. 32 states can/will open gambling on sports, or so they say.

 

Good, or bad?

Bad, increases acceptance to low class activities.

I read a while ago, I believe in the Daily Racing Form (i.e. the best newspaper in the world), that Monmouth Park was preparing for this decision, and that they will be ready to take sports bets within about 10 days of the Supreme Court decision, which came down this morning. That means that one will be able to have a flutter by about Memorial Day in Jersey. 


I can't wait for the self-appointed moralists among us, like that tiresome moran Terri Mae, to get sexually aroused telling other people what to do, that gambling is immoral and all that. Take that religious nonsense back to the Moonies where it belongs, and let me and my fellow degenerates wallow in this momentous day. :th:

I'll say one thing that is pretty much beyond doubt: it will be bad, incredibly, awfully bad, for the people who booked all those illegal sports bets.

 

What is going to happen to them, at least in states where sports betting is made legal, is analogous to what happened to the Mafia's numbers racket after the creation of state-sanctioned lotteries: they went out of business, and the illegal bookies will too. I just hope it's a cleaner game for the punters. 

And I say that as a guy who has zero interest -- *ly -- in sports betting. The last sports bet I made was in 1985, when I was 12, and I took Villanova in a $5 bet against my dad, who got Georgetown (this was straight up, with no point spread; I think my dad was trying to hustle me :D ). But just because I don't grok sports betting, I do think it should be 100% legal, everywhere.

Whoa... what?

I mis-typed in my excitement! :D

 

I mean to say that I agreed, that I'd bet cash money on those two morans being wrong. I'd bet that way with both fists. :th:
