Dog Days Of Summer Begin Today

Chicago Blackhawks And The Stanley Cup
Chicago Blackhawks And The Stanley Cup

Congrats to the Chicago Blackhawks for winning the Stanley Cup last night. Thanks and goodbye. This concludes the sports that get in the way of my favorite sport – baseball. Major League Baseball takes center stage in the sports world for the next couple of months until football (college and pro) take over.

Baseball is my favorite sport and I love going to the sportsbook and watching baseball and nothing but baseball. The sportsbooks are usually empty because fewer people care about MLB every year. MLB is slowly becoming a fringe sport like hockey. That’s okay, more room for me.

I enjoy just watching the games but I usually have a few bucks on a game or two and I usually have a few players in action on the greatest fantasy baseball team of all-time: The Las Vegas Porterhouse (AKA LVPH).

The dog days of summer refer to the excessive summer heat in July and August. In Las Vegas the temperatures get up into the 115+ degree range. This stinks but it’s a great excuse to head to the sportsbook to get some air conditioning. Day games no longer provide any problems as some of my favorite casinos have free wifi and I can work while watching the games. Check out my “office” at Red Rock Resort during the NHL playoffs.

Thank you to the other sports for passing the time over the past few months. Now it’s time for my favorite sport to take over. I’ll see you at the sportsbook. HUZZAH!

5 Major League Baseball Stadiums That Could Use A Casino

I’m always excited when I have contributors to the site. It’s something I don’t do often enough but that will change in the future. This week Gill Alexander, AKA Betting Dork, offers a little fun to the site.

A couple weeks ago I mentioned that the initial proposal for the New York Mets Citi Field came with a casino attached to it. That proposal was shot down by New York City before it even reached Major League Baseball for approval. Gill looks at a few Major League Baseball stadiums that could use the addition of addition a casino.

Even though some of his takes seem tongue and cheek a lot of what he has to say rings true. You can download the awesome Betting Dork Podcast (If you follow me on twitter you know how much I enjoy this podcast) or visit Dr. Bob Sports to learn more about Gill and follow his baseball picks.

According to court papers in the NCAA v Christie New Jersey sports betting case, Bud Selig’s shocked, appalled, and in disbelief that people bet on baseball? Well now that daughter Wendy’s not around to snitch, he’d never, ever believe the video poker machines on the back of every seat at his old team’s ballpark.
