As a former Turbo Bocce champion I can tell you that winning is an amazing thing. In fact, its so great that my bucket list has only two items on it. #1) Winning another Turbo Bocce championsihp #2) Dialing 867-5309 in every area code just to see what happens.

Vegas Playoff Odds!

We know the playoff match ups, we know the seeds, we know the BCS. What don’t we know yet? The odds Vegas would put on each team winning.
