    Im guessing the odds on the Twins winning it in 91 after finishing dead last in 90 were also pretty poor.

    I also got $50 on the Wild at 58:1 to win the Stanley Cup a month or two ago, that one I think actually could pay off.

    Homer bets are the best

    Nolasco is our Jack Morris?
    Now all we need is DeRosa to be our Chilli Davis and we will be there!

    Placing the bet is not idiotic.

    You can't win if you don't play. I have a distinct memory of being in Las Vegas, Nevada in December 1990 and not betting the Twins at 60 to 1 to win the World Series.
    Sold or not, empty seats behind homeplate are an eyesore and an embarrassment.

    And 180:1 is pretty good too. Approved.

    That $30 could have bought you a bottle of Jameson, which you'll need when the team settles back into their nice 3-years-and-counting rut

    I'm pulling for you to win...but I'm not going to bet my $30. I'm going to save it so I can buy baseball cards of Spann, Revere, Ramos, Cuddy, Hardy, Go Go Gomez, RA Dickey, Liriano, David Ortiz, Morneau, Balfour, Hunter, Crain, Garza, and Mike Redmond.

    I'm going to spend mine on Captain America trading cards.

    I made the same bet in early January but only got 80:1, I think. I don't really feel like checking the ticket in my (emtpy) wallet.

    So if you're an idiot at those odds...

    Those are solid odds for the Wild. If I had something similar I might throw some money down on the Vikes for next year.
