Joe Biden: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black.” … President Trump: “If you vote Republican, we will create three million new jobs for the Black community.” … With 17 days to go, BET founder Robert Johnson, not buying any of it, put American politics in perspective: “I will take the devil I know over the devil I don’t.”
“Hey Stitches, just want you to know I AM playing along. However, I’m betting against you every day. Up a bundle so far. Keep ’em coming. Thanks.” — Joe Bindert, Forked River, N.J.
Glad to help out, Joe. Hey, a couple of more winners and maybe you can leave Forked River in the rearview mirror.
Baseball Saturday! Both the Astros and Dodgers extended their seasons. We have series-winning bets on Los Angeles and Houston, so we will back the survivors again on Saturday for 20 units.
With our season, as well as those of the Astros and the Dodgers, hanging by a thread, we all responded Friday night. Astros 7, Rays 4. Houston with a four-run fifth inning to pull ahead. Framber Valdez allowed one run over six. Dodgers’ “O” came alive, and they beat the Braves 7-3. Corey Seager with two homers to help cut out debt to -1,178 vinscullys.
