A Website for Budding E-Bookies

UD - GoBookmakerIt's Monday—a day to dream bigger, aim higher and climb to greater heights than you'd ever dared imagine.

Why yes, we are talking about starting your own online bookie racket.

Introducing GoBookmaker, a long overdue website that serves as your secret handshake for entering into the elusive world of bookmaking.

We know what you're thinking: is this legal? Our feeling about it is this: it seems legal, and it's always better to ask forgiveness than permission. Let's just say the site's based in Cyprus, which means extraditing you would be nothing short of an international incident, and Obama's overextended as it is.

As for what it actually does, it's simple: sign up, and you get access to online goodies that help you track bets, keep up-to-date on the latest odds, and generally lay lines on the hottest action. Soon, you'll be running informed rackets on everything from the standards—college hoops, football—to that hotbed of sports gambling known as water polo. From there, just track the outcomes and run numbers like Newman and Redford in The Sting—natty tuxedos and faking your death is completely optional. The site even throws in a domain name to get you going.

Because the domain name was really tripping you up.
