That's how much you won yesterday when you followed my advice concerning which bets to make on the Super Bowl, and you're welcome. Since you are an honest and forthright individual - you're one of my readers, after all - I expect you'll get the check for my 10% of your winnings into the mail ASAP. Just in case you've forgotten, here's my address:
Suldog The Hopeful, Even In The Face Of All Evidence To The Contrary
93 Winsor Avenue
Watertown, MA 02472
By my figuring (which yesterday has proven to be pretty damned good) my cut, at 10%, comes to $53. Since I have 518 followers, I should be receiving checks totaling at least $27,454.
(I say 'at least' because there are no doubt a few lurkers among you who haven't chosen to become followers, but who nevertheless made the bets I suggested. I'm assuming one or two of you will send me a check, also.)
(Since I'm a Christian, and charitable giving is a virtue, I've decided to be magnanimous and give everything I receive over $27,454 to charity. Yes, I am a nice guy, and I have no doubt God just punched my ticket for Heaven due to my having such a fine and generous thought. If you send me what you owe me, no doubt your ticket will also be punched.)
More math for those of you who don't care: The total amount I asked you to risk was $3,750. The win which resulted, of $530, is a return of 14.13% on your investment. Not bad for four hours. Try to get a bank to do as much for you!
So, that will be the only time this year when I give you my tremendously sound financial advice, and I'm glad you profited. I'll be back with some new writing after you send me my share of the loot. Or I'll never be back, if that will get you to send the check in a more expeditious fashion. Your choice.
Soon (relatively, and dependent upon your honesty) with more better stuff.
