What is a “Tout” she asks, step over to the corner of the bar little
lady and I’ll tell you! And while we’re at it, I’ll give you a sure
thing in the 3rd race and let you in on some sure fire
winners in tonight’s ballgames….. The planets must have been aligned
just right or she used a Joker in her Tarot deck because Mystic got
me good last week, she kicked my tush (see rat reference near
conclusion of next section) in the three games where we differed SU.
Mystic went a more than respectful 13-3 SU and I went ------- forget
about it! The Month by the way, came in 3-0 SU (following the
rules?) When is he going to do all the games like Mystic & I? It’s
not like he does anything else but handicap and
think of 50 cent words to use in his columns…
I too can inscribe eloquence eloquently. Perhaps I am not as
articulately stylish as my mentor, the Mouth of Motown, but hey,
we’re talking to the likes of “punters” in smoke filled vociferous
betting parlors that are dreaming of filling in a 10 team parlay
card, not the members of the staff of the Center for Advanced
Studies at MIT….
My use of the term “punter does not imply British lineage. I did
however, attend a soccer game once. I fell asleep twice during the
match and the team I bet on lost 1-0. May Pele and Maradona please
forgive me my intent in the previous lines. Also, by referring to
the Mouth as my mentor is not meant to include the implication that
he is older than I, although appearances can be deceiving.
I know what your thinking at this juncture “We don’t give a “Rat’s
Tush” about all that, let’s cut out the chaff (you country boys know
what that is), and get to the business at hand.
OK, here goes!
I know that +1/2 star is nothing to “write (or e-mail) home about,
in fact it’s nothing at all when you factor in the book’s “juice.”
Anyway, here’s another stouthearted effort to help you shrink the
$$$ stockpiles of your favorite casino…
