Tonight is a big night in Cleveland. Not only are the Indians playing in game one of the World Series, but the Cavs are kicking off their season and receiving their rings for winning the NBA championship. Someone asked LeBron if it could get any better:
"It's going to be great. From the fans' perspective, is there any better way? I don't know, maybe having an ice cream truck outside both arenas at the same time as well? Icing on the cake."
It didn't take long for an ice cream company to decide to show up tonight.
His name is "Vegas" Dave Oancea (of course) and he started his career as a professional gambler by taking out a $10,000 student loan, going straight to Vegas, and putting it all on red. This is not a great "go to college" story to tell the youth of America.
Dave says, "It hit, and I turned the 10 grand into 20. I quit school the next day. Vegas loves losers but hates winners."
In 2015, he won $2.5 million after betting $140,000 on the Kansas City Royals to win the World Series - He placed his bet a week into the season.
His World Series pick this year was the Texas Rangers. They obviously won't win it but don't cry for Dave, he won a million bucks on a $300,000 bet that they would win their division.
Kanye West is threatening to boycott the Grammy Awards. Why? Well, there are two reasons really.
First there's Kanye's reason: He is disappointed that Frank Ocean wasn't nominated. The reason he wasn't nominated is because his music wasn't released in time (which means it would be eligible next year).
The second reason he's threatening to boycott is probably more realistic - Every time he does something like this he gets tons of press. Yes I realize this blog contributes to that. :)
