I would be such a bad sports betting noob if they allow it.

For my own bank account I'm ok with not allowing it haha, but I would enjoy it

I think Baucus has no choice but to support the bill because he can't find any cons for the overall scenario.

To TE and Dir. Pappas:

Can we read these ammendments?

TE and PPA leadership: Have you read these ammendments?

How the **** are these 12 year olds getting money? If they're playing with play money, they are learning more about math than most high school students....Officially tilted

Does Bachus not realize there is a distinction between someone that plays poker and someone that is addicted to gambling. Almost all poker players are not addicted.

I've been [misquoted] as saying playing the game of poker is like finding a hair in a dish... these sites don't mind violating our law and have supported character assassination of those who oppose them through [hiring bloggers -- like TE apparently ]."

No idea what he meant by "we're not talking about the game of poker"

How might legalizing sports betting put bookies out of business? Bookies will just shift over to the internet to generate more business IMHO.
