Excerpt:

"I've taken a seven-figure bet before. And I was smiling at the end of that one! It was a Super Bowl - the Bears-Colts game [in 2007]. Funny story: I'm from Chicago, and my whole family was rooting for the Bears to win. Unfortunately, they didn't, and my daughter called me and she was upset, and I was like, 'That's OK, honey. We made a lot of money today.' [Laughs.] You can't have a favorite team in this industry, that's for sure."
