My friend knew he was in trouble as he typed away, “chatting” with a “live operator” at sportsbetting.com somewhere out there far away from Las Vegas.
The operator responded that my friend had lost his B.J. Penn wager because Jon Fitch “won the fight by majority decision.” That this guy didn’t know the result was frightening in itself. A harbinger of things to come. It was, as most everyone knows who follows the sport, a draw.
