I'll dish some more about that on this weekend's show, but I just loved this too much:
Friess: Do you still gamble?
Goodman: Every night of my life.
Goodman: I have somebody who makes my bets for me.
Friess: On sports.
Friess: What sports?
Goodman: Well, it’s basketball season now. You want to know who my bets are so you can follow them?
Goodman takes a piece of lined notebook paper out of his breast pocket, unfolds it and reads the following, written very small in cursive on the paper:
Mich State +11
San Antonio -7.5
Friess: How much do you bet on each?
Goodman: On basketball, $20 or $50. There are just so many games.
Friess: You do this every day?
Goodman: Every day of my life, I’ll have a bet on something.Friess: What's the most you've ever lost?
Goodman: A LOT.
Friess: On what?
Goodman: Oh, Tony Spilotro gave me a sure thing once. Minnesota v San Francisco. It was not a sure thing.
So three things about this:
(a) Can someone tell me how the mayor did? All those -/+ confuse the crap out of me.
(b) How do I get an interview with the guy who lays bets for the mayor?
(c) I hope nobody lost their fingers or worse on the Minnesota v. SF deal.
