Other Chicago Sports/General Sports Thread Part XIV: WOO IRISH
 
Other thread right up at 1,000.

Hunter Pence makes me want to root for the Giants more.

Cullksinikers 10-23-2012 01:07 AM

He is so lanky, unorthodox, and strange to watch, but the dude is a gamer.

MurrayBannerman 10-23-2012 01:15 AM

That beard just caps it off.

Sir Psycho T 10-23-2012 03:23 AM

Pence is all elbows and knees but he is so fun to watch, went to a few games after he was traded here and his playing style and personality make you have to like the guy.

DoomsdayVillain 10-23-2012 03:27 AM

Go Giants! haha

RayP 10-23-2012 10:09 AM

Yeah, I've also always been a Pence fan... comes across as a real cool and likeable guy.

Guess I'll stick this here:

Anyone remember how much beer was at the UC last year. Was $8 for a Bud/Bud Light and $9 for a premium (I usually go with Boston Lager there) at the Bulls game Friday. Seemed a bit higher than it had been, but I could be wrong.

Yeah, they raised it, 50 cents for games I think. Start bringing a flask, you've got to.

You're doing it wrong. Just throw a hoodie over that bad boy, and you're set.

I'm rooting for the Tigers, Mike Ilitch doesn't have much time left and he's been the kind of owner I always wished we had.

RayP 10-23-2012 10:35 AM

I just wish there were a way for Verlander to get a ring, but Valverde not get one.

Wait 5 years, Valverde will hock it to pay off creditors.

Could you imagine if Valverde recorded the final out? The guy celebrates a save in early March like he won the WS. Can't imagine what he'd do if he actually got the final out of a WS victory.

IU Hawks fan 10-23-2012 10:43 AM

Yeah, I should flask it. I just like beer too much.

digdug41982 10-23-2012 10:44 AM

Maybe he'll go into the stands...if they are at home, obviously.

More of a liquor, bourbon specifically, kind of guy myself.

Wouldn't shock me if he did it in either city. Hate that SOB.

digdug41982 10-23-2012 10:49 AM

What's a good site to bet on sports? I've been wanting to throw some cash on NFL games anyway, but I really want to bet on the Tigers in the World Series, I think they will win in 4 or 5. Thanks.

IU Hawks fan 10-23-2012 11:02 AM

They're all terrible/scams.

Don't waste your money, you'll regret it. Most of these sites don't let you cash out until your up to $1000 (prior to that, they'll send you a gift card for the value you have remaining) and it takes 8 weeks to get your money out.

Last year I put $200 into a site, then discovered the policy. Ended up just screwing around kind of knowing it was lost money, and got it up to $800. Football ended, so I started betting basketball and hockey here and there. It ended up going down to around $500, so I said screw it, and put what I had left on a Heat/Clippers game. Heat were -7 or 8. Lebron missed like 6-7 free throws and they won by 5 or 6. And that was the end of my online gambling career.

Huh? I've used Sportsbook.ag and the site formerly known as Bodog and never had an issue withdrawing. Both also offer full online casinos, if that's your thing. They're supposedly regulated, but I still don't trust them.

Both sites I've cashed out in within 5-7 business days, and have had them directly transferred into my bank account. Sounds to me you didn't pick a good site, or do enough research.

coldsteel, be prepared to have to go buy a prepaid Visa gift card, FYI. You might be able to send an e-check, but will depend on your bank. BOA let me, Chase did not. Also, a Discover prepaid card did not work... but I believe it was Visa that did.

I feel the same way.

digdug41982 10-23-2012 11:08 AM

Ok, cool, thanks Ray. I'll browse the fine print but it sounds like you have a couple good ones.

I was using Sportsbook.

I have used Sportsbook since high school and never once had an issue with them. Once when I was broke and unemployed I took out like $100 and they got it to me the same week...

Although I prefer Bodog/Bovada. Just like their layout better. Sportsbook's looks clumsy.

IU Hawks fan 10-23-2012 11:21 AM

That's really weird. Don't know why sportsbook was a ***** for me, but they were.
