They're in the Gate

I thought there were 32 teams in the NFL? If you watch NFL Network or ESPN you would certainly think the Dallas Cowboys were in a league all their own?

Give me 62.5/37.5 they don't even make the playoffs. Any bets?

And giving up the King's ransom for Roy Williams another malcontent Diva at WR? The guy has played one full season, his top total in catches are 82 with his next highest at 64 and he's only had one 1000 yard season. Fuck, Detroit without Matt Millen has already made better moves (one) in two weeks than Millen made in six years.

First of all why would the Skippys with the sweaters tied on their backs be cooking ostrich burgers in the parking lot? They would certainly be in the club seats eating the buffet and drinking wine or scotch.

Secondly, if they were, and this is a big stretch, cooking ostrich burgers in the parking lot while tailgating, I can confidently say they would not, under any curcumstances, be without hot and shallow women, and they would certainly not have an ice cold cooler of Miller Low Life.

Has anyone ever drank Miller Low Life? When I was down and out I used to beg, borrow, or steal...or roll pennies, to buy $0.99 40 oz. of that shit. And I wasn't eating ostrich burgers either.

The Matrix SnGs on FTP. Genius. What they are doing with that is keeping the money in play while collecting the same rake over and over and over. If anyone is any good at SnGs, why would they fuck up their ROI on gimmick shit? Seriously, do the math.

Did anyone realize that this blogger did National Commercials? 13 seconds in and you'll see everybody's friend pushing his kids.

Bad week in football but I tried the track lately for a tune up to the Breeders Cup and so far so good. Handicapping horses long term is dead end but for a couple weeks let's see if I can find some winners.

Any of the Southern California crew heading to Santa Anita for the Breeders Cup? Perhaps a road trip?

Keep winning.

Boston-LA Again?

Miss me? I didn't think so.

Not much going on in my life so there really is nothing to blog about.

I basically only play poker during the Mookie on Wednesday night although I have played a couple times live when people have been in town. Poker bores me to no end. Still I might try to play some online cash a couple hours a day just to see if I can run up my meager account.

Politics, I don't really care. Some of you might think I dig it but I don't...I do like pressing buttons though, particularly when reactions speak so loudly. (pun intended)

The economic correction? Bailouts? No interest. I don't keep money in a bank. I took it out of the hands of greedy crooks many years ago.

Stock Market correction? Took my money out of the hands of greedy crooks many years ago.

Housing correction? I don't own a house. Got lucky and sold mine a few years ago at the peak of the market. Good thing I got lucky there as the house near the beach in South Florida is now worth 50% less.

Baseball playoffs have been very entertaining. The best four teams remain, no Cubs fans your team was not one of them and hasn't been for 100 years, and hopefully we'll see two great LCS's.

I'm really surprised at the prices though. Philly opened up -140/+120 and quickly it's down to -110/-110 so all the money is on Manny. I bet the Dodgers at +120.

Boston opened at -155/+135 and that too was bet down to -130/-110 so lots of love on Tampa. I'm waiting until last minute and betting Boston as it will just be too perfect to see an LA-Boston World Series with the million of different story lines.

As always I enjoy football season. The Canes are still struggling with all the youngsters and it's dissapointing to watch but when all these true freshman grow up it's going to be a different story. The Dolphins have been a pleasant surprise and man did it feel good to beat two hated teams in New England and San Diego.

Last season had to one of the most difficult ever watching a team lose it's first 14 games before finally getting a win. I feel for the St Louis and Detroit fans out there as the longer it takes to get that first win the harder it is to get and no matter how much I like to see others suffer, going 0-16 would be dreadful.

On the gaming front, so far it's break even in college but I'm doing very well in the NFL. There are tons of resources out there and what's best if you do wager on the NFL is betting against the public. Some of my biggest winners this year have been with me and a handful of other bettors cheering one side while 98% of the patrons at Red Rock are betting the other side. Let's hope we can keep the streak rolling.

I hope everyone is doing well out there. I'll be back sooner than last time.
