LAS VEGAS, NV – July 1991
It was hot as hell and getting hotter. The Fizz substituted crack for psychedelics and “The System” started to fail. Max countered with a pesky heroin habit and, in an act of desperation, held The Fizz down and stuffed a sheet of acid into his fat mouth.
For twenty days and twenty nights, The Fizz was a walking, talking cosmic cataclysm. “I am The Destroyer. The Alpha and The Omega. The Harbinger of Death. The Days of Doom are upon us.”
Maybe they were, but at least “The System” started to work again.
Bookies balance bettors short term memories by giving and taking points based on teams recent performances. To get the betting public to bet on teams that have recently performed poorly, they are forced to give more points than the game’s predicted outcome. Conversely, linemakers take points from teams that have recently performed well.
