    I had the choice of trying to hook up with the Yankees or play Mega-Millions….The Yankees said they were all set so I put a buck on the lottery.

    I have to laugh at people who won’t bet on one game with two teams but will easily wager $5 or $10 on a game where the odds are 170 million to one. You would have better odds of Osama Bin Laden ringing your doorbell and asking to use the telephone.
