Initially built by NASA to set lines for the Las Vegas casinos in the late 50's (who do you think funded the Apollo missions? The government? It was the mob...), The Sin City Betbot 6000 calculated lines for over 30 years. The Betbot was given various upgrades through the years, not always with the best equipment, but he was very good at setting lines, and living the good life.
The Betbot was de-commissioned in 1990 after San Francisco destroyed Denver in the Super Bowl. The 45 point spread simply fried a number of the Betbot's wires and he retired. The Betbot was discovered by Fantasysharks.com and retooled to give fantasy advice. He lives now to give his own unique, well cultured take on the NFL.The Sin City Betbot 6000 Presents is transcribed by Joe Petrizzi and Tom Walls because "typing.. .BZZT... is a dame's job".

Lulu was nothing but a summer love for me, and I thought Lulu knew that also. I was wrong, I had to get back to Vegas because the NFL season was right around the corner, and I needed to get back home, besides the movie was almost done filming. Ahhh... but our passionate, sweaty Sessions of Sweet were truly memorable. The voice of an angel -- even when not singing in front of an audience.
I left London August 5th to Lulu's despair. She immediately rewrote the words to the song 'To Sir , With Love' to reflect my Svengali-like influence on her. I didn't like seeing her cry, but I had a job to do...Many NFL fanbases are crying now -- but at least they have next year to look forward to... I wasn't going back to that clingy Scottish banshee; that was for sure.
NFC NOTES -- I was on-hand for the Vikings-Packers game in Green Bay. That game changed at the end of the first half after Mason Crosby hit a...
