Do you have any evidence that it will snow?  Also, Joe is 4-0 in Superbowls.  Something Tom will never, ever be able to claim.  He also won't win a 4th so it doesn't matter.
Making it to six Superbowls and winning 4 would be more impressive than making it to four Superbowls and winning four. Same wins, two more appearances.

That is fairly accurate.  It isn't fair that I always win.
So, to clarify, you throw out shitty bets and hope morons (No offense Sean) take them.

Go Seahawks.  We better win it this season while all of our beasts are still on rookie contracts.
Hopefully they keep home field, otherwise, they'll choke on the road.
Like in the Superbowl. Where it will be snowing. And Tom Brady will get that fourth ring. And be the GOAT. Fuck Joe Montana.

Out of curiosity, his bet seemed to be based off exactly what you said, what is unfair about it?
The expected value of the gamble was below 0. EV(g)<0

Betting against me always has that value.  Ask Sean.
So you don't offer fair bets? Got it.

So Franklin claims the Patriots will win the Superbowl, however he isn't confident enough that they will even make it to bet $25.
Yes, because you didn't offer a fair bet and I'm not a moron.

Junker I'll take that, but since you said not to pay you and save my money last time, if you win I'll pay 100. Serious bets serious this time

Sounds good.  If Franklin wants in on the action, I am cutting it to $25 per bet.  Franklin is a pussy, though, so he won't.
Well obviously. It's not a fair bet. However, I think that if the Patriots can get past the Denver Mannings, they can easily win the whole thing. Brady and Bellicheck are good enough to give any team a good game, and Brady had shown this year he can still turn it on in the second half and rip defense apart.

More like Official American Sports Thread amirite
The World Cup group announcement is coming fairly soon, right? Feel free to discuss it when it happens. Otherwise, there's no real great international sports events going on right now. And the only worthwhile sports America doesn't dominate at are soccer and rugby, and I don't follow either of those.

The Patriots will beat the Seahawks in a snowy Superbowl, for those curious. Tom Brady will finally get his fourth ring and be the undisputed GOAT.

lolno
Sorry brah. The only team that can beat Brady this year is the Lions(dat interior pass rush), but they're going to lose at the Clink because the Seahawks home field advantage is cheating.

Am I still allowed to express if I hate someone? Because I really hate Thork. Fuck him.
But I'm a really nice guy. You went on a walk with Thork before right? I'm a lovely sensitive man. I have issues of course, but being an oddball is the reason I fit in with all of you. :'(
Ya know Thork, you have started to win me over. I mean, you posted a song from the South Park movie on the .org site, and I giggled for a good five minutes about it.

I understand this may be nit-picky, but "Atheist" isn't a religion. It's the lack of a religion, if anything.

A religion is a set of beliefs about reality. You don't have to believe in God to be religious. I think atheism entails a particular set of beliefs about reality and it therefore can be defined as a religion.
I disagree. Atheism does not entail any certain beliefs about reality. It only entails not believing in a god. It means "not theist". It's simply not having one (common) belief, but it certainly doesn't require the person hold any other beliefs. Simply that they don't hold one particular belief.
