LAS VEGAS - SLICE & DICE!!!
Came across another way to play dice online called Dice-Ology. It’s basically the same as craps, but with three additional bets: Little Ones, Big Ones, and Boom or Bust.
Little Ones... when all “Little” numbers (2,3,4,5,6) have been rolled before a seven, the Little Ones bet will pay out according to the chosen paytable. The bet loses when a seven is rolled, including a seven on the come out roll.
Big Ones... when all “Big” numbers (8,9,10,11,12) have been rolled before a seven, the Big Ones bet will pay out according to the chosen paytable. The bet loses when a seven is rolled, including a seven on the come out roll.
Boom or Bust... the Boom or Bust bet must be made prior to the come out roll. Boom or Bust will pay out when all of the numbers (2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10,11,12) have been rolled before a seven. The bet loses when a seven is rolled.
Gonna study some NUMEROLOGY to use when I hit up DICE-OLOGY!
WHAT is the world coming to? Can you believe that two fishermen were accused of stuffing fish in an attempt to win thousands of dollars at an Ohio fishing tournament? Two gentlemen were indicted by a Cuyahoga County grand jury on one charge each of cheating, attempted grand theft, possessing criminal tools, and the unlawful ownership of wild animals. WHEW! That is a mouthful and sounds a bit harsh for just putting a few little lead pebbles into the mouth of a fish. The two guys in question were disqualified from the Lake Erie Walleye Trail tournament after it was discovered their fish were stuffed with lead weights. UH OH! They found 10 weights inside the fish – eight 12-ounce weights and two 8-ounce weights. The director of the tournament told CNN he was immediately suspicious when one team’s fish weighed almost TWICE what he expected. Guess they’re PRETTY serious in Ohio when it comes to fish. How serious? Authorities seized one of the boats used in the tournament as well as the boat trailer. After seeing the payout for the winner, almost 29,000 bucks, we understand why. I’m not into fishing, but did catch EELS in the Harlem River back in the day. And I can’t give out any advice on fishing, but have one suggestion for the boys that got in trouble. Don’t STUFF the fish with that much weight. Maybe just one or two lead pellets would get-r-done!
Looking deep into the Lone Star State at the Texas/TCU matchup tomorrow. Also looking for someone who is WAY smarter than me to explain why the Longhorns are a -7 point favorite. SEVEN POINTS! WHAT am I MISSING??? The Horned Frogs, as you know, are pitching a PERFECTO at 9-0. Lemme throw some numbers are you. The Frogs QB Max Duggan is having a phenomenal season, hitting on 66% of his passes for 2,407 yards, with 24 TDs and ONLY 2 INTs. On the other side of the field, Texas QB Quinn Ewers is hitting on just 57.8% of his throws, for 1,336 yards, with 13 TDs and 5 INTs. Yea, the Horns have a super stud RB in Bijan Robinson who has gobbled up 1,129 yards, but TCU says we’ll see your Robinson and raise you a Kendre Miller. Kendre has ripped off 1,009 yards to go along with 12 TDs. Not calling for an outright upset here, but just think the PLUS 7 is a sweet bargain. Gimme the Frogs for the money. RIBBIT!!!
