You Bet Your Ass: Week 5

New, 2 comments

Conference play begins in more or less full swing as our gamblers build an unimpressive middle ground.

A few impressive things happened with our bets last week. Brandon Cain and Trevor Vallese both managed to pull of +$200 weeks, tying the season record for most won in a week (jerks just can't let me have anything to myself). We also had our first game in which all nine gamblers won their bet, so thank you Minnesota for accomplishing that rarity. I don't think we'll ever see that again. We've also established some hierarchies. Brandon lives in his ivory tower, lording over us all with his winnings. Then there's Aaron Rench and Collin Whitchurch, continuing to lag behind like so many paste eaters. The other six of us? All within $150 of each other. Let's spread that out!
