My wife and I were Las Vegas just before Christmas, 2013. While we were there, I stopped by the Bellagio sports betting book. (Is that what it is called? I don’t gamble often.)
I put $20 on the 2014 Marlins to win the World Series and $20 on the Astros to win the 2014 World Series. Both were 200-1 shots at the time.
I wonder if I could have bet on the 2017 Astros to win the World Series. I could have made some good money.
Meanwhile, the Marlins remain a sucker bet.

My dad took this picture of me standing where the seats used to be at Jarry Park. That’s where MLB was introduced to Canada. That’s where they played in a tight and cozy stadium instead of the cavernous Stade Olympique.
