There’s Nothing You Can’t Bet On

As the Tiger Woods story continues to dominate news coverage and becomes the most important story in the history of news, today’s news that Elin intends to divorce Tiger has already sparked bookies to start setting odds.

Right now, British bookmaker William Hill already have odds up on the settlement that Ms. Nordegren might receive. Currently, bettors get 25:1 odds that she’ll receive MORE than half a billion dollars. Among the other options are 6:4 odds for her getting underĀ $100 million and 1:2 that she gets between $100-500 million.

Really, what level of degenerate gambler are you if you find yourself wanting to get in on this kind of action?

Now he’s taking his role as a leader of the bullpen even further, helping his teammates with their off-field activities too. That’s the sign of a true leader.

After the jump is video of the explanation, watch how enthralled Okajima is to figure it all out, he thought all this time that Papelbon had been talking about the come line he was getting hit on, now he knows!

Pictures and video all from Out in Centerfield
