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.
