The Betting Madness Ends in Vegas

Michael Kaplan
Posted: April 6, 2011

(continued from page 1)

Connecticut takes a decisive lead and never relinquishes it. When my team moves ahead by 10 points, the Greek turns to his buddy and says, "This is disgusting. Let's get dinner." They head upstairs to Jean Georges Steakhouse, and I'm hoping that the wheels don't somehow fall off of UConn's thundering freight train.

They don't. Meyer wins and so do I. As I wait on a relatively short line to cash out my winning ticket, I send him a text of thanks and consider my own slab of rib eye over at Jean Georges.

Good story. As they always say, too bad you did not bet more!
