Chestnut Hill â€” While former Philadelphia Flyer Rick Tocchet faces allegations of heading an illegal gambling ring, Philadelphiarams.com readers hold their collective breath wondering how deep the probe goes.
A source close to a local men’s league team tells the tale of â€œMichelle, Andrea, and Shawnaâ€ three heavy betters who used to regularly skate at Wissahickon. â€œTheyâ€™ve assured me that no bets have been placed on the holiday skates,â€ said the source. â€œThursday night skates and Sundays, too, are clean they assure me.â€ However, it is widely speculated that Shawna, Andrea, and Mike are quick to bet on things like â€œWill Bender make an Eddy joke by the second period? Who will score the first goal off of a Booty turnover?â€ And the one with the most odds â€¦ â€œWhich blue line will Aldo trip over?â€
Another favorite betting practice is during Kensington Horseshoes. â€œThe stakes get unbelievably high for that,â€ said the source. â€œAnd throwing quarters at parking blocks â€¦ thatâ€™s huge. Where do they get the money?â€
Commissioners are expected to address the problem this spring prior to the draft.
