The Mercury Gambling Challenge: Man vs. Pug (Update #2)

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Wed, Dec 30, 2009 at 11:08 AM


Our once promising man vs. pug betting challenge has taken a disappointing turn. Neither human or dog has been all that successful, with Matt Slessler (the man) getting a measly 46% of his bowl game picks correct, while Olive (the dog) is nipping at his heels with 38% of her picks. To be honest, I'm saddened by the lackluster effort given by both gamblers. There are a lot of games coming up this week—including the Rose Bowl on Friday—so the pug better pick up her skills, or it looks like she'll be sleeping in the snow.
