Horses and Boxers

Managed to come out pretty well in the Kentucky Derby this year, which is a nice change from years past. I lost exactly $0, buoyed by the decision to not bet on sporting events that I have no business betting on.

I did, however, throw some money on Mayorga at +255 at Pinnacle. I was going to sit this one out, as who the hell knows what Mayorga will do in any given fight, but De La Hoya hasn't shown much of late, and there's usually a lot of dumb money that goes on De La Hoya due to his popularity.

Edit: Or, you know, dumb money like me who bet on Mayorga, only to see Oscar thoroughly beat him down. Der.

I will not bet on boxing and horse, I will not bet on boxing and horses, I will not bet on boxing and horses...

I feel your pain. I put money on Mayorga by decision and Mayorga by KO, TKO or DQ. Someone on my blog stopped by after the fight and commented, "You should have put money on Oscar." Where was he before the fight? It seemed like a good idea at the time...
