    Thank you Beefie for your tremendous service to this board!

    ...and to my vBank account.

    Seriously, I appreciate how much work all this must have been for Beefcake, and I can only hope to do half as good a job as he did. Folks, watch for lots of non-skating bets (British election, World Cup, etc.) to tide you over during the skating off-season!

    Thank you, Beefie!

    And Mr. UMBS, please be kind to us, commoners.
    Leave us some leftovers of your gigantic amount of $$$$.

    Good luck, darling!

    The King is dead, long live the King!

    Huge thanks to Beefcake for all the fun and putting up with those of us who had trouble reading.

    I'm looking forward to seeing UMBS's bets AND hopeful he might provide some tips along the way.

    Thank you, Beefie, for sparking my vGambling problem.

    I don't see many of us prying vcash from UMBS' grip but it will be fun to try.

    Beefie, I have lurrrrved participating in your vBookie bets. You gave us a fantastic range of wagering opportunities...and your choice of words to describe our betting options was brilliant / hilarious / so very engaging.

    Thank you for turning me into a vMillionaire. I enjoyed your reign as King of vBookie land and appreciate your deft skill at designing super appealing bets. Huge hug of thanks to you. (((Beefie)))

    UMBS Go Blue! Wheeeee! I look forward to seeing what the man with the Midas touch can entice us with. Don't forget, we like to win. Keep us amused and happy and we'll keep playing and paying. xoxo

    Thank you Beefie. You did a tremendous job. Even tho I never understand the logic behind the bets - I bet as I would in RL, who I like, names I like, the skater's niceness factor and in some cases just because.

    UMBS - welcome to the role!

    All this love. I'm gonna STAY!

    Nah. It was fun, great fun. But time to go. UMBS will bring in new blood, ergo new ideas, and ergo a new approach to it all. I've only got thismany interests, and at my advanced age not enough energy to other subjects for bets that you'd all find fascinating. Go Blue will stir it up like only he can stir it up ... creating more interest (and the charm quotient can only improve).

    I promise to Yoda the young'n toward writing sweetly generous odds, ala those from moi. Overcoming tremendous somewhat challenging odds to win adds a wee bit more fun to life. Whee, let's all be vWinners!

    Thanks, SHARPIE, for your support, and Prancer for blackmailing, er, guilting, er, recommending me to be the V Guru.

    Awww! Well ((((Beefie)))), I'm going to miss you and your great bookie threads. I did manage to win back some of my Vcash thanks to you.

    As for your replacement ... Woohoo, ((((UMBS))))!! You're the right one for the job!

    Thanks for all the bets Beefie. XOXO


    Now for UMBS: hot tub friends get special inside deals right?

    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    No thanks for my support? For all my threat, er, thread title changes? For playing your eville reindeer games?

    You can leave vBookies only as long as you don't go too far. I still need you around here, you know .

    I'm feeling a bit like Imeda Marcos tonight ... even the woefully vPoor people are thanking me and telling me how wonderful I am. (Maybe a little Evita thrown in to add the delusion of fabulousness to my embellishment.)

    Aw, yes, loves ya Prancer ... and thanks for your in bilking so many folks of their vNesteggs. Don't despair! As long as tennis, football, and Amazing Race exist, I'll still require thread changes in OTBP and Other Sports.

    Thanks for the fun, Beefcake! What great work!

    No shot of winning another dime here considering who's bookie.

    This victory lap is about to hit its 2-year anniversary. Could we unstick* this, now?

    "Taps" appreciated, but not mandatory.




    *lest it ends up competing with UMBS's retirement announcement
