In West Virginia

It’s one thing to be able to go to a casino or a racetrack and bet on sporting events. It’s quite another to do it from home [url=http://www.bengalscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-shawn-williams-jersey]Shawn Williams Jersey[/url] , or anywhere else you happen to be.

In West Virginia, “home or anywhere else you happen to be” most likely will be an option, sooner than later. PFT has learned that The Greenbrier Resort and FanDuel have reached an agreement that will result in FanDuel providing retail, online, and mobile sports wagering services within West Virginia.

“We are honored to be chosen to provide sports wagering services at The Greenbrier, an iconic resort in the U.S.,” FanDuel CEO Matt King said in a press release issued to PFT. “As we work towards building out a top sports betting product for the upcoming NFL season, we look forward to bringing West Virginia residents [url=http://www.coltscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-t.j.-green-jersey]T.J. Green Jersey[/url] , sports fans, and visitors to The Greenbrier the best interactive sports experience on the market.”

Final details will depend upon the regulations promulgated by the West Virginia Lottery Commission. It’s currently believed that, through FanDuel, people physically located in West Virginia (residents and non-resident alike) will be able to place bets via the FanDuel app. Betting also will be available at The Greenbrier’s on-site casino, along with the state’s four racetrack casinos.

The Greenbrier and FanDuel plan to have the betting service up and running by the fall, with the precise date hinging on the finalization of the West Virginia Lottery Commission’s regulations.

The Houston Texans currently conduct training camp at The Greenbrier. Previously, the New Orleans Saints held training camp there.

So, by all appearances [url=http://www.brownscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-zane-gonzalez-jersey]Zane Gonzalez Jersey[/url] , West Virginia will be poised for the coming football season (and possibly beyond) to attract citizens of its various nearby states (Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Kentucky, Virginia, and Tennessee) to cross the border, fire up their cell phone devices, access the FanDuel app [url=http://www.ramscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-kurt-warner-jersey]Kurt Warner Jersey[/url] , and wager money on the NFL and other sports.

Gil Santos, the New England Patriots' longtime radio voice, died Thursday on his 80th birthday and 57th wedding anniversary.

Son Mark Santos confirmed the death to The Boston Globe. He said the cause of death wasn't immediately clear to the family.

Santos started working Patriots' broadcasts games for WBZ in 1966 as a color analyst. He took over play-by-play duties when the team moved to Foxborough in 1971. WBZ lost the team's broadcast rights in the 1980s, and Santos returned with the station in 1991 and remained a fixture through the 2012 season.

Santos called 743 games in 36 seasons, and also did many Boston College football games. He retired from WBZ in 2009 after 38 years as a sports anchor, and was inducted into the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame that year. In 2013, he went into the Patriots Hall of Fame.

"It was my privilege to honor Gil with his induction into the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2013," Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft said in a team statement. "His legacy and most memorable calls will live there for future generations of Patriots fans to enjoy."

Santos was born in Acushnet and grew up in Fairhaven. He attended Southeastern Massachusetts University [url=http://www.broncoscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-gary-zimmerman-jersey]Gary Zimmerman Jersey[/url] , served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam and graduated from the New England Broadcast School.

In addition to his son, Santos is survived by wife Roberta, daughter Kathleen and two grandchildren.
