    A nice inside look into life in Serie D. Thanks. I have on occasion actually bet on this league as the payout can be quite good.

    Thanks, Jake. You bet on Serie D? That may be my next blog: soccer gambling in Italy. I lived in Vegas 10 years and I know where you’re coming from. The key to sports gaming is know just a little bit more than the bookies. The wise guys in Vegas bet one college basketball league or team all year. They know everything about those teams. The Ivy League is particularly profitable because road games aren’t as difficult and the teams are real consistent. Players are smart. They fly under the bookies’ radar. One year in the mid-80s I bet the Washington Bullets for about three weeks. They were a mediocre but veteran team that played real well on the road. I cleaned up until the bookies caught on and adjusted the line. DON’T bet the NFL. Bookies know what plays teams run before the teams do. Serie D may fit that category. Thanks for the idea.

      You’re welcome Stefania. I’m pleasantly shocked I had a woman reader get through 2,500 words about a minor-league soccer team’s road trip.

    Hi John. Do you manage to get to any of the Rugby games? Is rugby in Rome/Italy popular as the crowds in the Studio Olympica are quite large; or are the majority the visitors’ supporters?
