Do you really think the OP started a thread to seek approval on how to spend a thousand dollars (or more!) gambling on sports?
In my experience, such irresponsible characters do not let their message-board brethren fact-check the bettings.
This is unforgivable. You really believe that these are the words of a man about to bet more than two figures:

There isn't a word of money or odds or any such nonsense. If I had the creativity of flatjacket1, I'd write that the OP was merely asking if he should have high hopes for the Jays this season. And, hey, since time is money, perhaps he was wondering how much time he should spend watching games, reading box-scores, blogs, attending games, and so on. It's very plausible, especially considering he didn't mention money in his post
Enough, already! flatjacket1 knows he is wrong and has too much pride to let Schad be the voice of reason. Lucky26 was wrong to include 'STFU' in his rebuttal. Still, dragging this out is insufferable.

Commenting, publicly, on how much "a lot of money" should be
--or not be--is vulgar.

Additional correction: flatjacket1 provides much carping to the board.
