Is there anything left to bet on in this world?

I was thinking today how the shutdown must be absolutely crushing gambling activity, legal and otherwise. Is there anything sports-related out there anywhere in the world that one can bet on?

Vegas is being destroyed. For a .5% mortality rate of mostly overweight old people with preexisting health conditions. It’s just madness.

Having seen many vintage card collectors, we are in the extremely high risk zone. Over 50, overweight, and have diabetes. I know I hit all 3 of those.

Seems like this would have been a great time to legalize online poker in states other than Nevada and New Jersey.

If you're not crazy about the types of characters drawn to sports card collecting, try your hand at online poker. I heard of dozens of scams prior to Black Friday a few years ago and I'm not really tied in at all to that world.

Yea I heard about a few of them. I think the worst was the guys at ultimate bet with the software that let them see everyone else's cards.
