So I just finished watching this weeks episode of the Sopranos - sly internet style. I gotta say, I'm quite excited as to what may (or may not) happen in the last bunch of episodes. For shits and giggles, I threw together a little Soprano's Sportsbook action.

Some rules:
1) Everybody who responds "i'm in" to the "Who's In" post below starts with an imaginary $1k.
2) If you blow your stake before the season is up you're out for the rest of the season.
3) If you don't bet every week, you're out. Minimum bets are $50.
4) Totals of all participants will be tallied the Monday (or Tuesday) following the show and a new thread containing a new Prop and leaderboard will be posted.
5) The person who bets wins gets some kind of prize from VegasTripping... I gotta figure that out. Suggestions are welcome.
6) When you make your wager - simply type: "Prop 1 - Junior Soprano - $100" or whatever your wager/might be.
7) Betting will close Sunday at Noon Pacific Time. A PDF of the wagers will be posted shortly thereafter. Any updates or edits after that point will be disqualified.
8) All bets are paid and disputes are settled by the Pit Boss - yours truly.

Based on how week 1 goes, we'll do some Exacta's and other fancy bets.

prop 1:
100 on paulie (in a subtle anticlimax from last week)
50 on christopher (who, i swear is way tall in person)
50 on bobby (in a subtle. delayed anticlimax from the opener)

prop 2:
50 on tony lives, business as usual (boring but standard mafia plotline to punish the boss with life minus his loved ones)
50 on wacked by the family (the bada bing family, not the north caldwell, nj family)

and a 1 dollar yo, please.

Nobody got whacked... although Carmella came pretty close.

Shall we let it ride?

 cheerioh responded on Friday, 4th May 2007

yes let it ride. this is tough- every episode is dripping with tension and at the end of the episode...

it's kinda like they're killing people off emotionally instead.

5 episodes left - something must break.

 Chuckmonster responded on Thursday, 10th May 2007

Once again nobody on the list got wacked. We'll let it ride till next week. New props coming in another thread.
