Don't Snapchat & Watch Baseball!

Never ever snapchat while watching a baseball game...

Well unless you're that guy.

This Pirates fan was snapchatting while watching a baseball game. And even though we are always warned about flying baseballs, the 21st century is all about recording and posting everything about your life on your social accounts.
So ladies and gentleman, if you're going to be on you phones during ballgames, you better have those reflexes.

Or even better, don't be on your phones during ballgames!

Football Betting Tips & Tricks
Sports betting has probably existed since the beginning of the first organized sporting events. Gladiator fights, chariot races, and the early Olympic Games have been the subject of sports betting since ancient times. However, no one knows for sure how deep the historical roots of sports betting really go. Unsurprisingly, today king football is number one in Europe in terms of sports betting. But how do sports betting actually work? The market for online soccer betting, which has exploded in recent years, has cemented this situation even further. If you want to get started now but have little or no idea about football betting, this is the place for you. But also somewhat more experienced contemporaries could well elicit one or the other hitherto ignored note from this text. When did football betting begin? Judging by the fact that football as an organized grassroots sport gained a foothold at the end of the 19th / beginning of the 20th century and rapidly gained in popularity, the first (at least official ...) football bets were well over the course of two decades to come. Only starting from 1921 for the first time in England official football bets were offered. These operated under the name "Toto" and served mainly to finance organized football. With a similar objective and under the same name, Toto was then implemented in Germany after the Second World War. From then on football bets conquered the sports betting market and gradually outpaced the formerly more popular horse racing bets. Unsurprisingly, the popularity of football betting today is analogous to the popularity of the sport itself. Everything about quotas The betting odds given by a bookie tell you how much he will pay for a bet you have made if you bet on that event or outcome. Quotas reflect the chances of victory that a bookmaker gives a team in terms of calculations or which outcome of the game he considers likely. This is then set in relation to each other and the resulting betting odds. However, that is only half the truth. If a bookmaker were content to simply offer the maximum objective odds and thus to anticipate the outcome correctly as often as possible, then he would not be doing his job. To lie correctly is the goal of us as players. The bookmaker, however, wants one thing above all: make a profit! Quotas are often adjusted for this purpose. For example, favorites are deliberately overrated by bookmakers, which means lower odds for their wins. Bookmakers do this very deliberately. Because the majority of players tend to bet on favorite wins and because favorites naturally win more often than outsiders, bookmakers would give away money if they gave objective favorites to the favorites every time. Another factor influences bookmaker odds. The competition among themselves. Especially in times of online football betting and numerous online bookmakers, the competition is very large and odds comparisons are from the perspective of the players only a small finger exercise away. Of course, this has clearly intensified the competitive situation. And so bookmakers often adjust the quotas they offer; simply to make their own bets more attractive. How are the odds displayed and how do sports betting work? Through the Internet, you can easily register with bookmakers beyond the continental European market. However, the odds are sometimes different in these. Even those who want to use a holiday in Vegas "athletic" will run there, a different representation of quotas, and thus a different reading style, on the way. Below are the three most common representations of betting odds. Decimal / continental Europe Of all the quota types, the decimal quotas we know are the easiest to understand. These are represented as decimal numbers with two decimal places (for example, 1.70 - 2.00 - 3.45, etc.). The stated odds always represent the factor by which your own stake is multiplied. So if you bet 10 Euro on an event with a 2.0 win quota, you will receive 20 Euro (minus the fees that the bookmaker keeps). However, factor 2.0 shows the total (!) Payment amount. It is therefore not a net profit of 20 euros but 10 euros profit plus the 10 euros use since the 2.00 are to be understood as a multiplier. If the odds were only 1.00 (which, of course, never happened), you would not win anything but just get your bet back. It is, therefore, a so-called gross quota. This finding is important because it behaves differently in the other two odds models. Odds / United Kingdom As the mother country of football betting, the United Kingdom has a very large market. However, the odds are somewhat different on the islands. First of all, they show the net profit. So the net profit, which one makes in a successful bet. Of course, you also get paid his stake again. However, this is not considered a profit in the sense of the British odds and is therefore ignored in the representation of the odds. The British odds are always presented in simple fractions. For example 5/3. The number in front of the dash (5) represents the profit distributed in the event of success. The number behind the dash describes the amount required (3) to achieve the reported profit (5). Of course, that does not mean you can only bet three pounds. The British odds simply represent the ratio of net profit to stake in a very simplified way. British odds are easily converted into our decimal system. Quote 5/3 5: 3 = 1.67 + 1.00 (to take into account the stake included and thus determine the gross profit) = 2.67 By the way: A 2.00 bet, as in our example for the continental European decimal odds, would typically not be shown in the UK as 2/1 but as even money or just even. The term even money is also used in the American system. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kdk6prcpUKI
NFL Week 12 Pick 'Em
With Week 12 upon us, it's time for teams to really start making their push toward the playoffs. Let's take a look at some of the biggest games around the league. Steelers vs. Seahawks Seattle will look to ride rookie RB Thomas Rawls as they hope to solidify their playoff chances. They're currently behind the Cardinals for the NFC West division lead but are in prime position to take one of the two Wild Card spots in the NFC, with the rest of the conference pretty weak overall. The Steelers are in a similar position, as they are leading the AFC Wild Card charge but trail the Bengals for the lead in the AFC North. Prediction: The Seahawks take this one at home. They're too tough to beat in Seattle. 20-16, Seahawks. Patriots vs. Broncos It'll be another start for QB Brock Osweiler in place of the injured (and ineffective) Peyton Manning in what is always one of the most exciting games of the year between the Pats and the Broncos. The Patriots are looking to improve on their 10-0 record and join the Panthers as the other undefeated team this late in the season. Prediction: Even though the game is in Denver, the Patriots are too good. The Broncos will put up a good fight thanks to their dominant defense, but it won't be enough. Patriots 17, Broncos 10. Vikings vs. Falcons This is the game of the week for me, with the Vikings looking to take advantage of division rival's loss, as the Packers fell to the Bears on Thanksgiving. With a win, Minnesota will take a lead in the NFC North. The Falcons started hot but have lost a few games in a row. They'll be hoping to get back on track to remain in control of a Wild Card spot. The division is out of the question with the undefeated Panthers set to take the cake, but Atlanta are still looking good, provided they can put together a few more wins. Prediction: This will be a really tight game and it's tough to call, but I'm giving it to the home team in a shootout. Atlanta 31, Minnesota 27. Enjoy the games, everyone!

The Woman Who Struck Out Babe Ruth
And Lou Gehrig too. On April 2, 1931 the seventeen year-old Jackie Mitchell struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig back-to-back. They were arguably the deadliest hitting duo in baseball history, and she did it in only seven pitches. Which is pretty damn impressive. Less impressive is what happened afterwards. "They are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day." Ruth wasn't the most gracious in defeat (via), and some historians have dismissed the exhibition game as an April Fool's Prank. It's unlikely that Ruth would have been visibly upset if he struck out on purpose, nor would he have asked the umpire to inspect the ball. And a few days later, Mitchell's contract was voided on the basis that baseball was "too strenuous" for women. Yeah, beating some of the most famous players of all time sounds really strenuous. What if she broke a nail?! /sarcasm She kept playing anyway. So clearly the game wasn't TOO strenuous (she died in 1987 at the age of 74). She joined the amateur team House of David in 1933, and retired in 1937. Meanwhile, women weren't formally banned from the MLB until 1952, though unofficially they were often kept off the field. Such was the case for Eleanor Engle, who never took the field. The President of the minor leagues stated that no contract with a woman would be approved because “not in the best interest of baseball that such travesties be tolerated.” In the 1970s girls were allowed to join Little League, in the 80s women joined college baseball, and in the 1990s, Ila Borders joined the St. Paul Saints of the independent Northern League. But no female player has reached the majors (yet). But the 100-year anniversary of the time a teenage girl struck out some of the toughest hitters in baseball history. Maybe it'll happen again in 2031?
I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
Here's the full MLB playoff schedule
It's playoff time! Who's excited? I know I am - and I bet my fellow baseball fans are too! @mchlyang @christianmordi @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl !! Let's take a look at the Wild Card and NLDS schedule. It all gets started this Tuesday at 8PM ET as Houston travels to the Bronx to face the Yankees. The Yankees could have a tough time with the AL Cy Young frontrunner and 20-game winner, but it should be an intense game one way or the other. Win or go home! In the NL Wild Card, the Cubs face the Pirates in Pittsburgh at 8PM ET on Wednesday. This game also features a likely Cy Young winner, as Jake Arrieta will look to continue his masterful second half and knock out the Cubs' division rivals. After those Wild Card games are settled, we enter into the Division Series. Each series is a 5-game set, with the team with home field advantage playing host in games 1, 2, and 5. Both sets in the National league follow the same schedule of games. New York Mets vs. Los Angeles Dodgers St. Louis Cardinals vs. [winner of Pittsburgh vs. Chicago] Game 1 - Friday [@ LA/St. Louis] Game 2 - Saturday [@ LA/St. Louis] Game 3 - Monday [@ NY/Pittsburgh or Chicago] Game 4 - Tuesday [@ NY/Pittsburgh or Chicago] Game 5 - Thursday [@ LA/St. Louis] There's lots of intrigue in the American League, too. Texas Rangers vs. Toronto Blue Jays Kansas City Royals vs. [winner of New York vs. Houston] Game 1 - Thursday [@Toronto/KC] Game 2 - Friday [@Toronto/KC] Game 3 - Sunday [@Texas/New York or Houston] Game 4 - Monday [@Texas/New York or Houston] Game 5 - Wednesday [@Toronto/KC] Enjoy the playoffs everyone!
