I’d be going back in time twenty years armed with current knowledge.
And I’d be going to the bookies.
“How far in the future can I bet on the outcome of two football matches on the same day?” I’d ask.
“There is no limit” would come the reply.
“I would like therefore to stake one thousand pounds that in 2013, Celtic will lose to Ross County in a premier league match in Dingwall after being 2-0 in the lead”
(Bookmakers assistant looks incredulous and somehow worried)
“And I’d like to make it a double with Annan Athletic winning a league game at Ibrox against Rangers, on the same day, in Scottish League division three with more than forty thousand people there”
(Bookmakers assistant says “Hold on while I go and get the odds for that sir”)
Bookmakers Assistant on phone : “Yes he has the money and seems normal but is clearly suffering some kind of mental trauma. Should I phone the authorities?”
Bookie Boss – “Aye do that but stall him and make sure you take his bet first”.
I would have the last laugh though, because today Ladbrokes would be in receivership and I’d be a billionaire!
