Back in January, when the St. Louis Blues were dead last in the NHL, who could’ve seen this coming? A freaking Stanley Cup title.
Well, this guy either had some future sight, or he just decided to throw $400 at the wall and see if it’d stick. Either way, he’s $100,000 richer now, after placing a bet on the last-place Blues to win it all way back in the year.
How’s it feel, my guy?
Well, whatever it takes to place a bet like that — sheer guts or faith in your team or just utter disregard — it’s paying off richly now. Mad respect to Scott Berry, soothsayer.
This is probably one of the most impressive single-season turnarounds that we’ve seen in quite some time by the Blues, going from last to champs in the span of about a half-year. No doubt, this one’s going to feel good.
