ESPN: Outside the Lines" by Paula Lavigne - ESPN.com

What's hot in the south Florida streets right now? Blowin' money fast on youth football games. Der. This investigative report claims that bets up to $20,000 are being made on Pop Warner games in the Sunshine State. One former player recounts running back a kickoff and being handed a hundred dollar bill in the end zone. There are point spreads. They got point spreads on little league football games. Who is the zero that sat there and figured out whether or not Lil Tommy Wanamaker was going to recover from the skinned knee he suffered falling off the jungle gym in time to play scatback for the Pompano Beach Panthers and how that affected the over/under? Who is that guy? How does that happen in real life?
