The College Bribery/Cheating Scandal Keeps Getting Juicier

Lori Loughlin of Full House and Felicity Huffman of Desperate Housewives are the latest big names in this scandal. The scandal includes bribing deans, coaches, and board of trustees members to get their kids into school on an “athletic” scholarship. There is an episode of Full House where Lori’s husband in the show, Jesse, lies to get their twins into a prestigious preschool. Lori feels bad and tells the truth. Too bad she didn’t do that in real life. Her bail was 1 million dollars. She paid it like she paid the Board of Trustees Chairman at the University of Southern California.

Olivia Jade Giannulli should prolly check her privilege. This really is like in the Sopranos when Carmela Soprano bribes the Dean of Georgetown (in the show) to get her daughter into the school.

This story is wild. My favorite part is that they would photoshop the face of their kid on someone who played sports at their high school in their high school’s uniform to “prove” that their kid played the sport.

Longtime UCLA soccer coach Jorge Salcedo is indicted. The scheme at UCLA involves bribes over $25 million since 2011, cheating on entrance exams, mail fraud, lying, and even more. Bruce and Davina Isackson’s older daughter was on the team during 2017, but did not play in any games and did not play competitive soccer in high school. She was not on the 2018 women’s soccer roster, but served as the women soccer’s team manager from 2016-2018, according to her LinkedIn page. Bruce and Davina bribed and committed mail fraud. The universities are trying to act like the victim, but where are the checks, balances, and accountability?

Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, UCLA, and USC are the main schools in this fraud. Nothing like rich kids getting where they want with their parents money. That’ll teach them to not be entitled and spoiled.. yeah right.

CS:GO ESEA Europe – Jumping In

Jumping into eSports for the first time today. I have been watching a lot of it over the past two months and feel confident enough to start posting about it.

0-0 on eSports

Spirit at +134 for 3 units. Spirit have had a lot of roster turnover lately, but this is more of a Virtus.Pro fade. Virtus.Pro just lost Izako Boars on Dust2 18-6. Spirit are better than Izako. Spirit have lost to some good teams on this map and won against the teams they should win against. I expect that to continue today. Virtus.Pro did play well vs Faze yesterday, but this is a match I give the slight edge to Spirit in… so I will take them at plus money.

Snooker World Grand Prix Quarterfinals

9-4 in snooker in 2018 up 6.58 units

1-0 in 2019 up 2.02 units 

Kyren Wilson at -126 for 2 units. Wilson has won his last 7 matches. Wilson has won his last 4 matches against Barry Hawkins, who he faces today. Wilson is cueing the ball real well. He mopped the floor with World #12 Stuart Bingham in the last round. Send it.  #STILLONMYSNOOKERSHIT #SNOOKER #IBARELYEVENKNOWHER

Snooker World Grand Prix Quarterfinals

9-4 in snooker in 2018 up 6.58 units

0-0 in 2019

Mark Selby at -293 for 6 units. Selby lost to Noppon Saengkham 5 frames to 4 the last time they played, but he won the 5 previous meetings. The more talented, experienced player gets revenge. #BACKONMYSNOOKERSHIT #SNOOKER #IBARELYEVENKNOWHER

Snooker November 17th

8-4 in snooker in 2018 up 3.82 units

Ronnie O’Sullivan at -145 for 4 units. Haven’t bet on snooker since Ronnie lost to Ali Carter back in April. Ronnie has looked solid at the NI Open. O’Sullivan is only tough to bet on when he isn’t motivated. He missed a shot in the last round and banged his head on the table. If that isn’t passion.. I DONT KNOW WHAT IS?!? haha it is hard to get pumped about snooker, but the Michael Jordan of the sport wins today. #BACKONMYSNOOKERSHIT

Snooker April 25th

8-3 in snooker up 6.82 units

Ronnie O’Sullivan at -766 for 3 units. Ronnie has not lost to Ali Carter since 2010. Ronnie is on a health kick and recently said, “the biggest thing for me this year is how I have eaten and am amazed how good I feel and how healthy I am.” He continued, “I have changed the way I eat and have a massive amount of energy. Compared to the average Briton, I will always look fit because we are not the most healthy society.” A healthy Ronnie is a scary sight for the rest of his snooker competitors. The juice does not scare me because Ronnie is motivated. O’Sullivan sometimes does not care about winning a tournament for a myriad of reasons like the prize money not being high enough or him wanting to be back home. Well, this tournament has the prize money and the proximity to home, so I will back O’Sullivan here.
