Procott coming to a Downs near you

August 22, 2007

A good thing? A bad thing? I don’t know. Something called a ‘procott’ is scheduled to occur this Saturday, August 25, at the Albuquerque Downs. I’m not much of a gambler, but apparently a few fans of the ponies are upset with several content(?) providers for “the fractured structure of advance deposit wagering.”

I’m not exactly sure what this all means, but it sounds to me like the Downs will see some heavy betting this Saturday. If I’m understanding this procott concept, people spend money to express their frustration/dissatisfaction/fill-in-the-blank with Company X. It’s like a double negative boycott… a buycott?

Oh, boy. I think I’ll stick to the wiener dog races.
