Fortune's always hiding...

>> Wednesday


British bookmakers have offered potential gamblers odds that Illinois rookie Senator Barack Obama will trade his meteoric rise in politics for a shot at the Premier League. Odds are presently listed at 10,000-to-one that Senator Obama will abandon his Presidential campaign to take over as the head coach at London-based club West Ham United. Hammers coach Alan Curbishly resigned today.

Obama has allegedly been a Hammers supporter since visiting England five years ago. Usually with huge, long odds like this one, it's almost worth it just to put down like 5 bucks and see what happens. (i.e.: Really wish I'd put some money down on Sarah Palin three months ago when I first heard her name bandied about for the GOP VP position.)

But even here it's a waste of money.

Stat geek sidenote: There's better job security in politics than in the EPL. Only four managers have been in their current posts longer than the 3 1/2 years Obama has been a Senator: Sir Alex Ferguson (Man United), Arsene Wenger (Arsenal), Rafa Benitez (Liverpool), and David Moyes (Everton).

That's a good bet. After losing this election he's going to have to run to England and cry it off!

The manager for Arsenal's name is Arsene? What are the odds? In light of this new development, I'm changing my name to Brewer.

Mike, I'll give you 1,000,000 to 1 odds that I didn't buy Ziplock bags at Walgreens earlier tonight. Oh! So sorry. I did buy Ziplock bags at Walgreens earlier tonight. Now you owe me $50. You really need to stop making these bad bets. And I think you might have a problem.

Also... Iain, do I sense some Alaskan pride in that prediction?

Patrick 3:22 PM  

Um, there is absolutely no chance that Obama is going to lose the election. Sorry Iain

Matt 11:41 PM  

Prediction?

Pain.

Iain 1:44 PM  

While I don't aggree with everything Palin belives, it's pretty damn cool to have a major national canidate from Alaska.

Patrick 4:27 PM  

But a woman?

Iain 5:49 PM  

At the very least she has better aim than Cheny and will accually kill what she shoots.

Vinnie 1:31 AM  

Maybe she and Cheney should have a duel.
