Ten years ago, Rory McIlroys father, Gerry, placed a 500-to-1 bet that his 15-year-old son would win the British Open before the age of 26. On Sunday, Gerry McIlroys faith in his son paid off literally as Rory won the Claret Jug and he cashed in to the tune of $171,000. With many unknowns - his son being an amateur golfer and just 15 - the bet made by Gerry McIlroy required mostly blind faith in Rorys talent and potential. If you could take the same risk, with relatively similar unknowns, what bet would you make? One could follow McIlroys example and place a bet once again on Rorys success. With his British Open win, Rory has three major titles; a U.S. Open win, a PGA Championship and, now, a British Open title. McIlroy is 11 major wins away from Tiger Woods totla of 14. However, Woods last major win came in 2008, when he was 34-years-old. Would you bet on McIlroy to surpass Woods in the next 10 years? Or how about putting some money on a Canadian team winning it all? Since 1993, hockey fans in Canada have been waiting to see a Canadian team hoist the Stanley Cup. The Vancouver Canucks came close to the feat in 2011, but lost to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. The future for many of Canadas teams seems bright. The Montreal Canadiens advanced to the Eastern Conference Final last season and seem primed for another run in 2014-15 and the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers look to have strong 10-year outlooks based on the young talent on their rosters. Would you bet on any one of Canadas seven teams winning the Cup within the next 10 years? Speaking of Montreal, its been 10 years since the Expos left town. The prospect of bringing baseball back to Montreal is an oft-talked about concept throughout Canada, though nothing is close to imminent. No stadium is in the works, or team up for sale, yet there is a small possibility a Montreal-based team could take to bat within the next 10 years. Earlier this month, commissioner Bud Selig said Montreal was an "excellent candidate in the future." A long-shot bet, but one many Montrealers may gladly take as they continue to wait and hope for the return of the game. Like baseball in Montreal, the debate of bringing NFL football to Toronto seems to always be on the minds of Torontonians. Yet, with the passing of Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson, the topic has received more attention than ever before. With a Toronto-based group reportedly led by rock star Jon Bon Jovi interested in purchasing the Bills, the city seems to have more hope than ever before. However, the Bills cannot leave Western New York until at least 2020 without incurring a $400 million penalty. Theres also no guarantee Bon Jovis group would move the team north of the border. Certainly many questions and unknowns surround the situation, but would you take the bet that four-down football will be played in Toronto within 10 years, or are the citys hopes simply livin on a prayer? Hailing from north of Toronto, Andrew Wiggins appears poised for a strong NBA career. The 19-year-old was selected first overall in this years NBA Draft and has been touted as the leagues "next great player." If he lives up to the hype, Wiggins should join the NBAs elite and join the select company of players to win the leagues most valuable player award. Would you bet that Wiggins will live up to the hype and secure an MVP trophy within his first 10 NBA seasons? Another rising Canadian star that may be worth betting on is Eugenie Bouchard. The 20-year-old from Westmount, Quebec is coming off her first final at a major and has reached the semifinal round at all three majors in 2014. Bouchard currently sits seventh in the world rankings and appears to be ready to rise even further. Could Bouchard win each major tournament and complete a career Grand Slam by the age of 30? Her recent trend of success suggests that bet might be worth taking. Given the chance to make a bet looking 10 years into the future, do you think you would cash in on any of the above? Maybe you have your own intriguing long-shot wager that could have you laughing all the way to the bank. As always, its Your! Call.

Various media outlets, including the Detroit Free Press, indicate a deal is close, while USA Today cited an unidentified person directly involved with the negotiations as saying the pact is for two years.CLEVELAND -- This week, everyone gets to watch Johnny play football. The Browns have relaxed their media limitations to see rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel practice. Manziel, who will compete with Brian Hoyer for Clevelands starting job, will take part in the clubs three-day organized team activities, which began Tuesday. The Browns are allowing national media to cover the workout after limiting access for their rookie minicamp last week to only local reporters and photographers. First-year Browns coach Mike Pettine only permitted access for 15 minutes of practice on Saturday. Manziel threw three passes and did some stretching during the period the workout was open. Sundays workout was closed. On Wednesday, Clevelands entire practice session will be open to both local and national media members. Pettine, who was on New Yorks coaching staff when the Jets acquired celebrated quarterback Tim Tebow, is trying to contain the hype surrounding Manziel, the flashy Texas A&M quarterback Cleveland selected in the first round of the NFL draft. The Browns received push back from some national outlets upset about being denied credentials. "Were well aware of what the league rules are and well open it up to the national media this week," Pettinne said at a banquet in Akron on Monday night.dddddddddddd "I think its once a week is the policy. Were not going to go overboard with it. There will be a limited amount of time you can film and certain players will be available certain days. Thats how well go moving forward." Pettine believes too much was made of last weeks media restrictions. His objective was to keep the media to a minimum so as not to cause a distraction for his young players. "It was overblown a little bit," he said. "It was more rewarding the local media than it was punishing. The words ban and punishing, to me that was nonsense." The Browns havent always received positive media feedback, mostly because the team has been a perennial loser and there has been nearly constant turnover with the front office and coaches. Pettine knows one way to change the Browns -- and Clevelands -- national perception. "The only way well get credibility with the national media is if we win," he said. "I was more concerned about the how the hype would affect the team, and thats my primary concern is the team. Its all about football. Whether we have some national people that are upset with us, so be it. Were going to undersell and overproduce."
