Perhaps you should but use caution as your acquaintances may not be too pleased.
The comment was addressing the word "after" which, in this case, would indicate an event will occur, not may occur. If this were to be known prior to such an event then one would have an advantage to place a bet on the side of knowledge (i.e. insider info). Since BC is in the news as taking such bets, it was the place of mention. I am sure my acquaintances are able to detect tongue in cheek dialogue.
