View Full Version : Not a bit, yet...

I saw an article in the paper about a growing concern that college athletes could be pulling a Pete Rose. I must admit that I did not read the whole article but it spoke of athletes involved in gambling related activities.


What are gambling related activites - that don't involve gambling?

Going to a poker game in the dorm, not to play, just to practice reading faces.

Sitting at the Roulette table in Vegas, not to play, just to feel the chips in your hand.

Giving a bookie money, not as a wager, just to hold it for safe keeping.

I'll have to ponder this some more.
