No joy in Mudville

A few of you may know that I like to partake of the kingly sport of betting on NFL football. This week I decided to put in a slightly larger stake, with the goal of putting together the significant portion of the cost of a new ASUS Eee computer. My potential take was $377.68, about $20 less than the cost of a new eee system.

Bottom line: Every bet came through. Except the (5-6) Broncos, who had won the last 5 matchups against their arch-rival (3-8) Raiders, and wound up committing 4 turnovers, leading to 24 Oakland points, thus not only failing to cover, but actually losing outright; I wound up with a net loss of $15. No new computer this week.
