Betting on Cito


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.
