Games people play

My current Tradesports bets:
Shorted Hillary for Democratic nomination (2:1)
Edwards, Warner to win Democratic nomination (20:1, 5:1)
Shorted Giuliani for Republican nomination (7:1)
George Allen to win Republican nomination (5:1)
Shorted Brokeback Mountain for Best Picture (2:1)
David Straithairn for Best Actor (25:1)
But I don't only bet on sissy stuff:
Seahawks to win Super Bowl (5:1)
Shorted Broncos (3:1)
Pats and Bears to win Super Bowl (12:1 each): lost $10
Shorted Colts (2:1): made $20, one more reason Pittsburgh is the most livable city
