From that thread, the gist of this is: Phil Mickelson, pro golfer, is a big-time gambler. His usual strategy is to bet on utterly random teams to win in the NFL every year, in the hopes that they will pay off big. He won BIG money two years in a row with St. Louis and Baltimore, ergo the strategy has some merit. So, without further adieu, it's time to pick your World Series, WITHOUT picking one of the preseason "favourites." This year I'll take the Padres at 20:1 and for my totally out there one I'll go with Cleveland at 150:1. Toil not to gain wealth, cease to be concerned about it. Proverbs 23:4 Promote this thread!

Last time I had someone do this for me, I had the New York Giants at 50:1 in the year they lost the Super Bowl to Baltimore. RSN was not a happy person that day. Why is TVLand stealing my ideas from DEAN's Workrate Report's? They had to be stealing, as I thought I had the only demented mind that could put Bea Arthur and Abe Vigoda in a sex scene.

( PalpatineW) Just because everyone else sez San Diego, I have to be different and ride the Baby 'Backs to the Series. Where they'll do the jay-oh-bee to the Royals. That Mickelson-esque enough? DEAN's Nuggets of Wisdom: "A-Train could wear a Vampirella outfit and I would toast a load to it."

Two teams not even mentioned because of two bigger teams ahead of them, but both have some good finances. [It's where I sit]

I got the Marlins repeating over the Twins. Yo, it's me, it's me, it's (points to self) P-A-B! Marlins are WORLD SERIES CHAMPS!! WOOOO!!!
Nice to know none of us in L.A. should get too attached. Manny Ramirez says it's his last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers It makes me wonder why the Dodgers are investing so much in him.
