    If you like this kind of old school stuff then Schettler's We Were Wise Guys And Didn't Know It is a fun read.

    I was impressed when Jimmy Vaccaro told me he had "deep respect" for Scotty Schettler.

    Jimmy V. rarely hands out glowing praise.

    Bobby is too good for a lot of people, though.

    Scotty sure picked a great title for his book....

    Wish he would drop by once in awhile....

    Vaccaro and Scotty were in the right place at the right time during their time in Vegas...

    Great stuff about BTO, thanks for posting....after the guy sucker punched Bobby I hope the Owl ran him over with his good driving habits.

    Fantastic piece and so important to reveal truths. Bobby The Owl is as genuine as a person can possibly be. Greatest gambling style ever also. BTO just keeps it simple. Well done Scotty Schettler, Gaming Today. Bobby is a living legend.

    Both of these guys would be parking cars if they came to Vegas now.

    I also felt Scotty could have put Bobby in a better light.

    So be it.

    Bobby's a great guy and a wonderful ambassador for sports betting.

    Bobby worked on two occasions for legendary sports bettor Billy Walters.

    I bet Bobby believes he's never worked a day in his life....not too many people can say that.

    I haven't either. My secret is that I like to work. Most of you lazy fucks think NOT working is something to be proud of. That is why I can't stand gamblers. Pathetic bunch most of you.

    A man without a strong work ethic should be avoided at all costs.

    Chasing good numbers is not work either. SMH. So happy I have no friends that gamble. I go solo. Fuck ya all. Kiss my ass.

    Default "Gaming Today" article

    pg. 25 about Bobby the Owl. Author supposedly a friend of the Owl, but makes him look like a clown.

    Default Re: "Gaming Today" Article

    I think Bobby did some clown work in the offseason at the carnival.

    Thought he mentioned that on the air once.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Bobby briefly this year. If you like Vegas history, Bobby is a great resource. Nice guy with a lot of great stories. The author doesn't paint Bobby very well imo.

    JK can attest to Donny's health more than anyone else can here. Last I heard Donny had Alzheimer's and was so far along he was nothing more than a vegetable. Too bad because before this happeend, Donny had more stories about OLD Vegas than almost anyone. Everyone knew Donny. When Lee Pete ruled the airwaves with his 10P-Midnight show on KDWN, Donny was his sidekick for many of those years. They were quite the "Odd Couple"
    The mind is a terrible thing to waste unless we are talking about the MORONS who post at Covers where the collective Sports Gambling IQ for the ENTIRE site is.................4!!! and even that might be too high

    The Owl and Donnie Bader were roomates. Once Donnie got sick, the Owl deserted him.
