Welcome to the Wednesday OWR Mailbag! Have a question about betting, sports, pop culture or tacos? This week we cover cooking chicken, Johnny Manziel MVP odds and cocaine. Email us email@example.com.
I’m scared of killing my family with food poisoning so I’ve started washing raw chicken before cooking, am I being too cautious?
I’m also over protected of chicken because the media has convinced me if I touch raw chicken and then touch a living creature it will die of salmonella poisoning. This isn’t true of course and you shouldn’t be washing your chicken (btw that sounds like something very different), instead keep the chicken in a manageable area and clean up with soap and water. That should protect you and any living creatures surrounding you. When I was a kid we used to go fishing and use chicken liver as bait to catch carp. We would buy the raw chicken parts from the grocery store and just rip it open and put them on the hook. There was a good chance that hand went right into a bag of chips next, no questions asked. What was my point again? Oh yes, chicken liver is awesome fishing bait!
If LeBron brings home a title to Cleveland, will they burn the city to the ground once and for all?
The odds are at least 3/2, right? Cleveland is known to start fires when their teams lead at half-time so who knows what they are capable of if they win a championship. I don’t think they will burn the city to the ground and the reason is because Detroit hasn’t been successful burning their entire city down. God knows they have tried. Hopefully the blaze would be put out before it reached the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame otherwise we would have listen to a lot of really old musicians during a “Rebuild Cleveland Telethon” and no one wants that.
What are the 2015 MVP odds for Johnny Manziel?
Probably 10,000 to 1 and even then I would feel a little dumb wasting a buck. I would need this to be 15,000 to 1. If it reaches those odds, put me in for two bucks.
