Floyd. My man. We get it. You’re the richest athlete ever. You make outrageous bets every single week on teams I’m almost positive you know nothing about.

Except this week you bet $220,000 on the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks to win by more than a touchdown against one of the more despicable defenses in the league. My only question – for a guy who makes like, a billion dollars a fight winning unanimously against someone not named Pacquiao, why not just round up to a cool quarter-mil? Go the extra $30,000. Pocket change for the constant talking head of the “Money Team”.
Listen, I’m all for gambling on sports, and when someone has a big win, I’m generally happy for them. Brothers of a certain cloth or something like that.
But excuse me if you expect me not to vomit in my mouth when the richest athlete of all time wins more than 200 grand on a lazy Monday and proceeds to post his winning ticket on social media right in my face.
If you’re going to pull that, at least post the ones you lose so I can feel a bit better when my $5 parlay on the Los Angeles Sparks and Cincinnati Reds falls through in an attempt to get some sort of financial build-up going as I stumble on fumes to the end of the month.
Oh and this measly $200,000 profit? It came two weeks after winning $1.4 million on the Indianapolis Colts.
Congrats Floyd, you did it. But if you keep parading your winners in the faces of degenerates everywhere, at least one of them is bound to snap.
