I gamble, therefore I write...or I write, therefore I gamble...honestly, they're pretty similar professions…

On Monday, February 8, the entirety of the gambling world wept in unison as pictures from a celebratory New Orleans flickered across nearly every sports book TV set on the globe.

The Super Bowl was over, the Saints emerging victorious, and as CBS broadcasters closed out the game's festivities they were also placing a moratorium on big gambling action until March Madness.

Added to this, both the World Poker Tour and European Poker Tour simultaneously went on break, golf hadn't really started back up yet and neither had horse racing.
What was a rounder to do? Bet on NBA games? Come on, everyone knows that's fixed!

All kidding aside, we are at a lull point in the gambling calendar and normally hardcore gamblers would have to turn to the NBA All-Star Weekend for their betting fix.

But this is one of those magical gambling leap years, where the Winter Olympics brings both massive sporting attention and gambling action.

But before you rounders run off to the snowy rainy wonderland of Western Canada to get in on the Olympic action, let me dispense to you five pieces of information every gambler should know before booking a Vancouver Olympic vacation.

I wonder what the line was on an athlete's death leading up to and during the Olympics... It's like I always say, you can't be a winner, if you're a luger! :-)
