A mad man bet: TT vs England, 2006 WC
« on: May 17, 2013, 04:20:35 AM »
Mods merge this as you see fit.
===================================

Teaching a class in Istanbul the other day and trying to explain to the class where Trinidadn & Tobago is.

A student ask me to write it on the board. As I write Trinidad, he start to jump.

He tell the class that during the 2006 WC, he made a bet (with the local betting service IIDA) of 500 Turkish Lira that TT and Eng. would 0-0 at the end of the first half. The odds were 5 to 1.
He won 2,500 TL.

Basically that was 333 dollars to win a little over 1600 dollars.

Ah tell him he had to be a mad man. I from TT and would never have been brave enough to make such a bet.

I thought Eng. would win but I just couldn't bring myself to bet against my country.
Still can't.
