A couple of years go, my brother and I made "The Mark Bell Bet". When we shook on that bet, I felt like I was taking candy from a baby. I was absolutely positive Mark Bell wouldn't score 20 goals in a season as a Toronto Maple Leaf.
Up $50, today I gave my little brother a chance to make it back. I bet him that the Blue Jays would finish ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East this season. The Rays opened the season with 10/1 odds of winning it all while our beloved Jays were at 35/1.
It sure looks like my brother is now the one taking candy from a baby, but don't be so sure. I learnt long ago you can look awfully stupid betting against Cito.
In Cito I trust.
