Gambling, dinner and work…

I used to hate football, and then I learned you could bet on it. So, I’m still not a big fan of the sport but now some mornings I wake up wondering if Green Bay covering the last two games might have been a fluke, or how bad Indy will blow out San Fran.

I really don’t like football, but I do love to gamble. So combine boredom with a love for gambling, and my friend Dave and I started a website doing weekly picks. We suck, basically, but it is fun. We pick one or two games a week and sell it as a “can’t-lose, bet-the-farm lock.” Last season we went 3-14, which is pretty amazing seeing as you probably couldn’t do that if you tried. Dave and I like to joke that one day we’ll sell and be sitting on a beach somewhere.

I went to dinner at Tonic last night, in Mount Pleasant. They run a Tuesday promotion: bottle of wine free with two entrees. The wine is as cheap as it gets, but the food is decent comfort food. I have pulled pork, and my girlfriend got porkchops. It wasn’t what I was expecting, but it wasn’t bad. The soup (tomato bisque) was actually really good.

I just submitted a question to the Post’s online chat with Alan Alda — “Would you really have leveled Toronto, if they didn’t surrender pronto?” Let’s see if this gets in.
