Las Vegas -
Why are we presenting an amazing picture of a fashion model swimming with this Whale Shark??? Keep reading to learn more about the SHARKS. As for the model, click to enlarge, and I think you'll LOVE the rear view!
It's all about the ice tonight, and we're riding the Zamboni out West to use the Sharks over the Kings in the opening game of the series. San Jose and Los Angeles have a ton of history, being in the same division and conference, and it ain't pretty. In last year's playoffs, L.A. sent the Sharks to the golf course, winning a very exciting, VERY CHIPPY seven game series. So REVENGE is the main dish on the table. But the interesting part about the series was, the HOME team WON EVERY GAME. Looked a little closer, and losing on the road in the playoffs has become kind of a pattern for the Kings. They were 0-3 in the first game of each series last season, and 0-6 in the first two games of each series on the road. And their overall 1-8 road record in last year's CUP action was not very inspiring, so I'll drop half a Benjamin on the Sharks.
HUGE Wednesday night for Ecks & Bacon. The Padres doubled up the Rockies 4-2, and it was worth half a Benj. Then the Penguins stormed back from a two goal deficit to squeeze past the Blue Jackets 4-3. Another half. So, after adding a FULL Benj to the bank, and pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that bankroll jumped the TWO DIME plateau for the first time, and that +$2080 is the current figure.
In the 'if you need it' category, we dropped to 6-2 after the Marlins fell to the Nationals last night.
