A Ticket of Faith

Reader Michael, who goes back with us to pre-OFB days of primitive message boarding, recently passed along evidence his renewed faith in the Caps, in the form of a modest wager made with a Vegas betting house.

More than a few hockey fans make such wagers and enjoy having a staple-stub of faith with them in their wallets all season long. It strikes us as a healthy form of devotion. And come next June, we think Michael should use his modest winnings from this wager on a round or two for his favorite bloggers in D.C.

Incidentally, whereas the Caps were typically on the order of 12-1 odds to win the Cup at this time last year, according to sportsbook.com, at summer’s end in 2010 they are installed as 5-1, top-of-the-pack favorites. And at vegasinsider.com, the Caps are top-of-the-pack favorites to win the Cup at 6-1, sharing the designation, unfortunately, with guess who?

    Obviously the current line on the Blackhawks at 7-1 in no way reflects the dismantling of Chicago’s roster this off season.

    Once Ted sees those odds he will pen another “We have arrived” post on his blog.

  3. As the Wysh said, this just screams confidence!
