  • Cousin Sal’s Gambling Blog: March Mad Men Edition

    Welcome to March Mad Men! There we go. All I needed to do was come up with a lousy pun to serve as an excuse for putting together a Sweet 16/Mad Men premiere combo blog. My picks last week were about as effective as a Mark Sanchez/Tim Tebow platoon. (Is that really happening?) The plan […]

  • Cousin Sal’s Gambling Blog: Oscar Props

    The Academy Awards spectacular is only a few nights away, and the big question on everyone’s mind is: Who am I wearing? (That’s a secret between me and my wardrobe dude, Rodney.) What I can tell you is how to make a few jermajesties off the gala event. Most of the categories are already decided. […]

    I can’t believe it’s already here. Super Bowl XXCLVICXIILCMCMC. (I did the Roman math — it works out). Either way — I’m prepared. I’ve read up on every degenerate gambler’s wagering option connected to this game. If Congress spent half as much time reading President Obama’s health care plan as I did peering over the […]

    Cousin Sal’s Gambling Blog: Week 16

    It’s beginning to look a lot like another Cubic Zirconia Christmas. My poor wife. Things were going splendidly last week after I hit my first three prop bets. Then it all fell apart when I lost a mother lode on “the Pats to score first vs. the Broncos”. Of course — what happens? They don’t […]

  • Cousin Sal’s Gambling Blog: Week 15

    Strong showing for me last week. I netted 12,500 jermajesties.* The Broncos’ winning by 1-3 points and Eli’s leading the league in passing yards were a couple of the many winning plays I offered up in Week 14. (Although, as a die-hard Cowboys fan who witnessed another crushing loss live, I would’ve killed to see […]

  • Cousin Sal’s Gambling Blog: Week 14

    A clean sweep last week with my NFL prop bets. Not for me — but for the unnamed offshore account where I place these dumb wagers. I dropped another 52,000 jermajesties* — mostly thanks to evil Bill Belichick, who decided to show a never-before-seen humane side by not running it up on the cruddy Colts. […]

    Cousin Sal’s Gambling Blog: Week 13

    Finally, a winning week! If you followed my Thanksgiving propositions, you probably ended the day stuffing your turkey with 100 dollar bills or uh … 100 jermajesty bills. (Obligatory weekly explanation: a “jermajesty” represents the fake name given for a dollar amount. It is also the unfortunate name of one of Jermaine Jackson’s sons.) Last […]

  • Cousin Sal’s Gambling Blog: Week 12

    It’s weird — I don’t ever remember getting gifts on Thanksgiving. That’s why I will surely be sending a thank-you note to the NFL for this Thursday’s games. In fact, these games are so appealing that I’ve actually convinced my relatives to eat dinner at 7:30 a.m. here on the West Coast just to ensure […]

    Cousin Sal’s Gambling Blog: Week 11

    Wow — what a week. I lost every single proposition wager I handed out. And if that isn’t bad enough, once again I wasn’t named People’s Sexiest Man Alive. Ever notice that only goes to famous people? Weird. Enough about sexy men. Let’s get back to something I know perhaps even less about — wagering […]

  • AC/DC

    Cousin Sal’s Gambling Blog: Week 10

    Question: What do AC/DC and I have in common? We’re both BACK IN BLACK, baby! I realize I’m technically back in the black — but there’s no such song with those exact words so this lame 30-year-old reference will have to do. Anyhow, that’s what happens when you go 3-0 with your big NFL proposition […]
