Chris Christie on NJ sports betting, new book; Black Sox, Part II
Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie drinks a symbolic tequila toast, analyzes the New Jersey sports betting market from germination to July and ruminates on what comes next, including maybe, perhaps, politics.
And in the second and final installment of our series on the Chicago Black Sox scandal, Society for American Baseball Research scholar Jacob Pomrenke puts the legacies of Shoeless Joe Jackson and Buck Weaver in perspective. He also draws strong comparisons between the baseball landscape of 1919 and now, and how owners are looking at gambling in much the same way.
