A Coaching Carousel Betting Calamity

In a post published on Thursday, I mentioned I had a wager on Bill Belichick becoming the next head coach of the Atlanta Falcons.

I also wrote, in the very same entry, that I felt the longer Belichick was not announced as being the new coach, the bet was looking flimsy.

Mike Vrabel was the person I thought would ruin the bet. 

Well, the bet was ruined. However, it wasn't Vrabel instead of Belichick.

Enter Raheem Morris.

The most ironic part of the Belichick bet is I had small gambles on Morris taking on a head coaching role at either Seattle or Washington. I did not have a punt on him doing so in Atlanta because - at the time I wagered - I was locked into Belichick being the Falcons' eventual choice.

That wasn't the first time I lost a bet thanks to Belichick. I cannot say for sure if it's the last. That will depend on him picking up a job somewhere.
