Howard Eskin, who did not purchase his own Super Bowl ring, has been breaking down barriers and setting trends for years now. He’s never had a bad day in his life.
You can add another item to Howard’s distinguished resume. He is now the first person to place a bet on Esports in the great state of New Jersey, which Kyle mentioned Thursday morning.
Howard then went on Joe Giglio’s show later in the day to elaborate:
“I made the first bet on an eSports event in the state of New Jersey, and maybe the first one in the country. The League of Legends, eSports, I made a bet on Team G2, which is chalk, in the championship on Sunday on Paris. The gambling authorities in New Jersey gave permission to take bets on Esports. Borgata was the first one and I made the first bet. So it was a big, big moment for me.
(he’s being facetious)
They’re a conservative team. They don’t panic when they get behind. They ride it out and they’re the best. They are the best in Esports right now in the League of Legends. I’ve been doing background research on this, no analytics, which is the best thing about this. Just numbers and guys doing what they do best. It’s a million dollars to the winning team. Not bad.
God help Team G2 if they fall short of expectations. Howard will show up to the next pre-game press conference to ask hard questions and grill their asses.
