I'm not a gambler. The only time I've ever visited the Strip in Vegas, I was bored out of my mind in five minutes. Found all the over-the-top excess more amusing than fascinating.
Still ... I wonder what kind of odds I could have gotten if I'd bet that today, in Indianapolis and Charlotte, in two of the three big races of the day, the guy leading with one corner to go wouldn't win either one.
At Indy, JR Hildebrand, who crashed in the fourth turn on the last lap, handing the victory to Dan Wheldon.
At Charlotte, Dale Earnhardt Jr., who ran out of gas in the fourth turn on the last lap, handing the victory to Kevin Harvick.
I coulda been a rich man.
