This Weekend's Best Bets: Does Pam Oliver Survive 2013?
I know many of you will be shocked that I feel this way, but one of the most beautiful things about life in 2013 is that you can bet on almost anything.
Will she or won't she?
Know a little something about movies, and care to wager on the Oscars? No problem.
Have a hunch on whether or not Walter White dies at the end of Breaking Bad this weekend? Sure, books will take your action.
Dollar amounts of movie opening weekends, high school football games, professional wrestling? Yes. Yes. Yes.
So why then can I not find a prop bet anywhere on FOX sideline reporter (and KHOU alum) Pam Oliver surviving the 2013 football season?
First, there was this little football-to-the-face incident in the a preseason Indianapolis Colts game, a beaning that left Oliver with a concussion:
Then there was this little episode during pregame of the Bengals-Packers game this past Sunday, where the Ohio State marching band almost decapitated Oliver with the handles of their trombones:
Somewhere along the way, it appears the football gods decided to make Pam Oliver the "Kenny from South Park" of the 2013 NFL season, where each week she gets killed, only to come back inexplicably the following week doing her job on the sidelines.
So if one of you offshore books wants to take some of my action on Pam Oliver's luck around dangerous projectiles for the next thirteen weeks, you know where to find me.
(And if you thought that the whole "Pam Oliver" thing was a way for me to avoid discussing how I went 2-4 again last week, well...)
