Central Florida, Louisiana retirement communities wager on UCF-LSU

There is no Bingo Night at Village on the Green. Who needs it when you can play the odds and wager on UCF?

That’s what residents of the senior living facility in Longwood are doing this week. They aren’t (we hope) betting their retirement accounts on the Knights beating LSU in Tuesday’s Fiesta Bowl.

They are betting a crate of oranges.

The rival group that has taken that bet is from St. James Place, a senior living facility in Baton Rouge, La. That’s LSU’s hometown, so the old-timers can be forgiven for throwing their money away betting against the unbeaten, unrivaled, unbelievably superior defending national champions.
