Betting With The Heart

"Tony McDowall, 65, [a Trinidad and Tobago fan] who lives in Berkshire, thinks his unfancied team can spring a surprise. After his wife found him in tears when Trinidad and Tobago qualified, he was certain they would win the World Cup. He went to a bookmakers and asked to put £1,000 on them winning the tournament, at odds of 1000-1. The bookmaker told him he couldn't accept his money and his wife hid their chequebook."

What kind of bookie was that ? Wuss. Sounds like his wife knows the score though.
