Warning--Two Tigers Are On The Prowl!
July 21, 2006 (Cincinnati, Ohio)- Hello once again from Buckeye country as the Ohio State football team readies itself for the BCS tournament and the Bengals continue to do damage control.
Just across the border in Michigan the Detroit Tigers once again served notice that they are planning on hanging around the dance for a lot longer than most folks expected as they squeaked by the defending World Series Champion Chicago White Sox yesterday.
With their 2-1 victory, the Tigers maintained a 5 ˝ game lead over Ozzie Guillen’s troops and they got some excellent pitching once again from fireballer Joel Zumaya who struck out three in two innings of relief for Kenny Rogers.
Word has filtered out of Toronto that ousted player Shea Hillenbrand wrote that the ‘ship was sinking’ on the team blackboard which prompted manager John Gibbons to challenge him to a fight. The Jays will have to eat the remaining portion of the .8 million that he was earning.
Incidentally, the under came into play once again on a Tigers game so if you are sports betting I suggest you continue following this trend in the next month with your favorite sportsbook.
Across the pond in England, there is a Tiger unleashed and he has left the woods and is on the prowl at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club. At this very moment, Woods is -11 as he plays the 15th hole in round two and there is a lot of talent tracking his trail. Chris Demarco is at -9, Retief Goosen -7 and Miquel Angel Jimenez at -7.
Still waiting to tee of are Ernie Els, Jim Furyk, Mike Weir and Sergio Garcia at -4, but many experts will suggest that Tiger will be in no mood to relinquish the lead and his victory is imminent! This is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of online sports betting, if you ask me.
And could somebody please tell me why champion Carlos Baldomir is the underdog at +150 against Arturo Gatti tomorrow night? At least that’s the latest line from a certain online sportsbook. Gatti is fighting up in class at the welterweight division and he has taken far too many punches in his career. I guess fighting in Gatti’s backyard in New Jersey has the linemakers convinced that the slugger can perform his magic once again.
Only Roy Jones Jr., Lennox Lewis, Sugar Shane Mosely and Oscar de la Hoya have fought more than the 20 times that Gatti has appeared on HBO. Folks, sports betting just got better.
