Editor's Note--It is with great pleasure that I invite you all to Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend where an A-list gathering occurs that rivals anything at some silly film festival in Utah can do. I'm talking about Big D, Entertainment folk, Athletes, world famous authors, financiers, and other hoi polloi who will be in attendance.We will be on the craps tables, in the sportsbooks, in the nightclubs, at the restaurants, and maybe even at the heated pools. I know we will all have some money to invest at these events due to Big D smashing another winning weekend in the divisional playoff round last week. Now its the AFC/NFC Championship games and Big D will take no prisoners. See you in Vegas baby, and if not, we will see you in the winner's circle wherever you are--R.B.
Richie, its always great to get the whole gang back together, if even for just one weekend. Many get excited when they come to these gatherings and see the people that are in our "crew". Now these are very famous but private people who only come because they know we control the paparazzi and allow them to invade the inner circle for very brief moments. But we all have a blast. We truly hope you can make it out.
As has become a tradition, Big D sometimes says a few nice things about one of the guests attending our gala, just prior to it's start. As many of you know, over the years this has ranged from heads of state, to titans of industry, to A-list entertainers, and athletes. This years focus is on the novel "Odd Jobs" and the author, Ben Lieberman. Ben, a titan of the financial industry, already has movie moguls lining up to buy the rights to the novel to make one of those big time Hollywood productions. The book is called "Odd Jobs" and you can find it on www.oddjobsnovel.com . Its been near the top of the charts for weeks. And when you have cats like best selling, multi million selling author, James Patterson, and business titan, Donald Trump, saying they can't put it down, and how riveting it is, you might want to click that link above baby and buy the book. There's even a character named "Rich Bennett" in it who plays a "favorite goon" of the bad guys. I don't if this has anything to do with the Rich Bennett I know that has known Mr. Lieberman for 20+ years. You'll just have to read it and find out. Congrats Ben. See you in Vegas. And when I say "Odd Jobs" is good, treat it like an NFL selection that I also say is good. Straight gold, pal. Get it?!?! Speaking of selection and gold........
Everyone says BALTIMORE has no offense, they would've lost last week if Houston didn't have injuries, and all that other mutha jazz. Well, the point spread is high and so is the total on this week's game in Foxboro, Mass. Now Big D wants you to look around and ask your neighbors, or your colleagues, or your fellow prisoners, and say, "What do you think of BALTIMORE+7.5 AND the OVER 50.5?" Watch their reactions. Some will say, "Come on guy, did you see the games last week.?" Others will just laugh at you. Some will even say they will take the other side. The important point is that its not popular. How do you think we own our own island over here, pally?!?! Hmmmm? That might not be the popular choice but its the correct one. And let me ask you this my kraut-mick friends, if Tom Brady leads a final 4th qtr comeback, as only Brady can, to win the game 31-28 what will you say then? Impossible? Can't happen? Now you will smile and say, "Hey BALTIMORE "won"!" Run to the windows. Dont walk.
In the 2nd game, this has gotta be the toughest spread call between two teams I have seen in a while. But whats everyone talking about? The weather! Right! Its going to rain in San Francisco. Its raining there now. Its going to rain all weekend and even Monday. Ever play football in the rain? The ball could get a little slippery. Ever play football in the wind? The ball goes all over the place when the kicker, punter, and QUARTERBACKS, try to put it in the air. THAT's a problem. Have they said its going to be windy that day? No they have not. They said it will RAIN. Big difference. Might be some punt return fumbles? Or some defensive touchdowns? Hmmmmmm? Wait until kickoff when that total goes nice and looooooooow and take the OVER, baby. Make everyone think you're crazy!
So, hope to see you in Vegas, as its going to be a pleasant 65 and sunny all weekend. AND it'll be 72 and clear indoors at the sportsbook all weekend long. Where we will just happen to be. Get your "Odd Jobs" novel and get these investments down: BALTIMORE+7.5 @ New England, OVER 50.5 New England/BALTIMORE, and OVER 42 San Francisco/New York Giants. Good luck and god bless.
