    @RaabHart - I got to your Hank Snow Canadian Pacific tribute in Part XXXIII of the Covid thread.

    There was a CP Rail commercial that ran around 1983 on the CFL telecasts. I came across a YT of a promotional 45 rpm that was given to those involved with the rail division, in which the music from the commercial came from (Steel Wheel by Tim Daniels). I thought I found the commercial as well but the audio was so low, even with the speakers and YT audio cranked full.

    Note: side 1 is in English, side 2 in French

    Didn't expect the first photo was a mouse committing murder.

    I tried to look at them but the idiots put the captions over the photo as opposed to under them.

    Hey Guys,

    I know what is going on down in DC is major news, but we need to make sure that we avoid political based comments as much as possible.

    Thank you.

    I didn't enjoy Season 1 very much. So far Season 2 isn't any better. Can't seem to be able to turn the channel though.

    Could Tom Brady and the Bucs take down both Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees? Doubtful. But it's Brady so...
    Could the Ravens D stop both Patrick Mahomes and Jake Allen? Doubtful. But they're both young QBs with a lot of pressure in the playoffs so...

    Getting out with $6,000 for that ticket is the smart choice right now though. It's too high of a price for any sane person to buy though, the cost of that ticket versus the odds is off.
    $222,000 : $6,000 = 37 :1
    It's essentially a 6 game parlay now. Currently Sports Select has Tampa at 1.35 and Baltimore at 1.80 this weekend. If we assume that picking these teams in following weeks' games will average out to a 3.0 (conservative) for each game that gives you 1.35 x 1.80 x 3.0 x 3.0 x 3.0 x 3.0 = 196.83.
    196.83 : 37 = 5.32 : 1
    196.83 x $100 = $19,683
    $222,000 / $19,683 = $1,127.88
    Assuming you could find somewhere to give you the above bet it would be cheaper for you to just do the above parlay by >5:1 if you were looking to score $222,000. So even if you were delusional enough to pick the underdog NFL road team to win 4 times on your parlay ticket you would be better off not paying for that $6,000 ticket and doing your own parlay. And that's assuming 3.0s for picking Tampa and Baltimore which might be more like 3.2 or even higher for Baltimre at KC, which means it could be cheaper to do your own parlay by >7:1. The math doesn't work out.
