Orlando Jai-alai is the perfect place to get a few new patrons hooked on jai-alai this season. All I would say to a new patron sitting next to is "bet Foronda and Alliez to win all night. If either of those players comes in first place in a game, you win!"

Easy to bet and, once the game is over, easy to figure out if you have a winning ticket or not. For most people, winning anything is better than nothing at all.

Of course a seasoned gambler of horses or dogs would not be satisfied with such measly payouts but someone gambling for the first time would be quite happy and excited to cash in a winning ticket no matter what the payout may be.

Hey David II, I don't know if you remember me from your Ocala Jai-alai days but I remember you. You were there during the season when Ocala had mostly American players and many had names that begin with the letter D (David, Dale, Danny, Dave, etc). The announcer had his work cutout for him that season!

I was only about 15 years old then and usually sat with two other girls right in the front row. My sister (blond) and I (brunette) always went to the fronton with our parents as a family and we were usually allowed to bring a friend along with us.

Those were the good old days! Lots of great memories for me.
