Let me first say that betting is a bad thing to do.  Do as I say, not as I do.  And you are an idiot if you follow MY betting advice.  Don’t believe me…?  Just look at my brackets.

If you’re really wanting to go and follow anyone’s betting advice it should be that of the lovely and talented King Hippo .  He smrt.

But you still shouldn’t bet.  It’s a vice and if you do it you are a horrible human.  Hippo and meself already know we’re horrible humans so it doesn’t matter to us anymore.

But don’t bet.  It’s a bad thing to do.

About a week and a half ago, I laid out $500 each on five different college basketball games.  It was house money at that point, built up from an initial $250 layout.  But it was still a very stupid thing to do.  Mostly, I did it because I needed the diversion from real life.  I don’t know if that makes sense or not.  And fortunately, I hit on four out of five games, netting another $1500.  I also hit yesterday on the Texas Tech line (thank you Red Raiders).

But now I’m cashing out.  It’s time to get out before my run of luck turns.

Having said that…..

NCAA Tournament

Already in Progress…

  • (10)Florida v (2)Michigan – TV: CBS
  • (10)Murray State v (4)Florida State – TV: TNT

Upcoming Momentarily…

(9)Baylor (+13, +1250) v (1)Gonzaga – 7:10pmEDT – TV: TBS

  • Don’t touch this, Zags gon’ roll but no profit margin to throw money in their direction.

(10)Minnesota (+10, +625) v (2)Michigan State – 7:45pmEDT – TV: CBS

  • Sparty due to lay an egg, might be worth a coupla bucks on the Minny ML.

(6)Villanova (+4, +180) v (3)Purdue – 8:40pmEDT – TV: TNT

  • I don’t have a good feel for this one…both are overseeded and underperformers.  Could go either way.

(5)Auburn (-2, -135) v (4)Kansas – 9:40pmEDT – TV: TBS

  • ML the hell out of KU on this one IMHO.  But as always, don’t blame me if you do and Auburn prevails.

Hey, whoever’s still here. Just got back from my AL roto baseball draft, and apparently I’m rooting for Texas to hit lots of dongs. Also my daughter was my Uber driver. Have kids everyone, for that reason alone.

Hope this evening finds y’all well and cumstained.

Like most modern cures in medical science it happened by accident but somewhere during today’s proceedings I’ve discovered the indisputable cure for constipation.

It’s fine now!
This can stop already!

Are you still talking about the election?

Oh, we have controversy in CA! The Bulgarian was cut badly, stormed back, knocked the Romanian down but hit him in the back of the head on the way down.

I haven’t seen this much excitement since the Speaker of Parliament invoked a rule from 1644 to cut off PM May from pushing for a 3rd vote on a Brexit extension!

Overheard on the train:

“She’s a ho!”
“What’s her number?”
