A few thoughts on Florida's upcoming primary:
Newt Gingrich is a vampire. He is the un dead. He cannot be killed without a wooden stake though his heart (or a few more steaks from the Palm- Newt's getting portly) and getting beat in Florida, which is a probability come Tuesday, will not do it.
After the Florida primary 10% of the delegates will be chosen. Up coming primaries include Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, Tennessee, Louisiana, and Texas. All southern states and all states that The Vampire Gingrich will do well in.
Note to Mitt: If you ignore Newt again after beating him in Florida, he will arise at night and suck the blood from your campaign. Again.
THE SUPER BOWL.
The Giants being a 3 point underdog in this super bowl is like someone saying to you in 1999 "You know, Apple might be a good stock to buy a few thousand shares of." (October 1999- $75.00 a share.)
We are reminded of the best super bowl score we ever made: the famous 1979 line.
The Steelers were back in the super bowl for the third time. They opened at 2 1/2 point favourites and the money pored in (ours included.) The line went to 4 and then 5 1/2 before settling at 4 at kick off.
The Steelers won 35-31. Those who had the Steelers -2 1/2 won. Those who had the Cowboys + 5 1/2 won. Those who had ether the Steelers or the Cowboys at 4 pushed and got their money back. It was our first five figure profit from a bet (we had the Steelers - 2 1/2 and the Cowboys +5, which is called "a middle"). The only people who lost money were the books.
We don't know if this is a game to middle. We like the Giants, no points, and take the money odds (+120) meaning bet ten bucks and win twelve (only in America!).
We'll keep you updated about our thoughts of securing your retirement with this super bowl, including our exclusive lock on the coin flip.
