From gambling’s rout to Aubrey Huff’s strikeout

America’s favorite sport that keeps you out of your money took a bit of a hit on Election Tuesday.

Two California ballots that would have legalized and expanded sports betting have burned.

Our beloved state remains America’s largest closed market for legal sports betting. We have largely denied the riches promised by allowing in-person sports betting at casinos and racetracks (Example 26) and online and mobile sports betting for adults. For some reason, we don’t believe the gambling industry when they say, “Trust us.”

Those people will come back. A fly won’t leave you alone when you’re the biggest horse in the stable.

Tuesday was an interesting night for sports. Former San Francisco Giants first baseman and Twitter quitter Aubrey Huff has failed in his bid for school board in Solano Beach, near San Diego. Huff Daddy got about 17 percent of the vote, meaning charter school kids in Solano Beach won’t be taking rifle training to protect themselves from liberals.

Walker’s strong finish compared to early polls was due in part to a large campaign contribution from Giants principal owner Charles Johnson.

Despite the huge amount of money sent to the 26th, about 70% of the voters said that they did not show thanks.

Pillar 27 lost by an even bigger margin. Opponents argued that this would turn every smartphone, laptop and tablet into a gambling tool, greatly increasing the likelihood that everyone, including children, would become victims of easy gambling.

No morals from this column, but sports betting is a huge waste of money and time. I know a lot of people who bet on sports and so far not one friend has ever come to my house with a brand new Ferrari and explained that “the 49ers are covered.”

Californians decided they didn’t want to make it easier for people to bet on sports. You can already have booze, pizza, and weed delivered to your door. Answering yes on prop 27 would give us a big helmet of sports laziness.
