Phillip "Fat Tony" Mozzello, oddsmaker for Caesar's Palace, said he and other Sin City bookies stumbled upon the number Saturday night as they gathered at Harrah's to establish the betting line for the following weekend.
"With the explosiveness of Denard Robinson, we initially thought the over/under for that game was gonna be about 70," said Mozzello. "Then we watched Michigan's defense in the Indiana game and the line immediately jumped to 170. But Petey 'Little Mikey' Riggatoni at the Flamingo said that was still too low. Especially with Greg Robinson and his 'Bend (Over and Grab Your Ankles) But Don't Break' defensive scheme."
Sal "Medium Nicky" Provelone, head of gaming operations for the Riviera Hotel and Casino and Is That Place Still Open?, agreed. "We worked on it into the night and at 3 a.m. it was still going up. Finally, we said fuggedaboutit had to call some math guys."
The final result is a theoretical number that can not yet be expressed with a numerical value. When reached by the MZone, mathematicians at MIT said the number can be explained in layman's terms as pi times the population of China times that problem on the chalkboard in GOOD WILL HUNTING.
