Why doesn’t anyone tweet out the wager receipt when they lose?
Boxer Floyd Mayweather pocketed $32 million in guaranteed pay from a night’s work in Las Vegas last month. Yesterday, he snagged $1.4 million from the casinos of Sin City.
Two last-second pick sixes, meaningless to the outcomes of their games, meant everything to Mayweather’s wagers. Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib intercepted a Geno Smith pass that he returned to the endzone to make it 31-17 and Cardinals corner Rashad Johnson stole a Kirk Cousins pass from the air and brought it 28 yards on the ground to paydirt. The superfluous scores allowed Arizona and Denver to cover and Floyd to collect, which he reportedly did shortly after winning.

That’s all you have to do, huh?
