Let the Madness begin...

I love this time of year. I mean what’s better? You got Baseball Season starting, the NBA is starting to look ahead to the playoffs which are in the near future, and of course the NCAA Basketball tournament. Yep, March is the best month of the year for sports. I love every minute of it. Unfortunately I’ve not had a lot of time to do significant research for filling out my brackets. Hopefully tonight I will have some time while watching the Play-in game. I was hoping that Boy Genius would put some opinions up on his blog about who he’s picking and why, since he is far more adept at sports betting than I will ever be.

Had a fairly decent weekend at the tables. Won 2 Sit n Gos, but lost 3. I was up to about $140 at one point, but I ended up dropping about $30 on a Stud table. What was I thinking? Ugg. I know there is some money to be made in other games aside from Hold ‘em because a lot of the players are like me and have no real clue what to do. I will take advantage of this some day, preferably when the bankroll is actually healthy.

I didn’t get a chance to play in the HORSE tournament on Sunday. Mainly because I didn’t want to make a small deposit and waste the 100% bonus I have coming to me. When (if) the bankroll hits $600 I will take full advantage of that. Instead of playing in the tourney I went and played Basketball with my friends. I used to really be into sports when I was in high school, but since my shoulder surgery in 2001 I’ve been what you might call “inactive”. There’s probably a really good reason for this, as today pretty much every muscle in my body aches. I didn’t even know I HAD muscles in some of the places that hurt. I ended up getting sever cramps in both of my calf muscles and actually had to be carried off the court. Luckily it was the last game of the night, so I didn’t feel like too much of a pansy. I’m pretty sure Bad Blood would have been laughing hysterically at me. I did hit a total bullshit luck shot to win one of the games, and that was my 30 seconds of fame for the night.

I wish I had something profound to write about, but I don’t. I’ve not put in enough time at the tables to start getting all profound on everyone. Hopefully sometime this week I’ll spew some more useless rhetoric. Until then, if anyone knows of the best place to make some bets online for some of the basketball games, please let me know. See ya at the tables.
