The odds of me going to 2 Phillies game in a weekend are very slim. I don’t like baseball that much and the game bores me. Things fell into place though as I met up with CK4, Nikkii, and Jkash at Chickie and Pete’s to see a game on Friday night. I scalped a ticket for $10 bucks and have to give credit to JKash for telling me to walk away from a $15 dollar ticket instead opting to get it from a trustworthy fellow in a blue Gumby shirt. The Big Dawg and JK were also there so we watched the game from our seats to start and then met up with them. We watched the walk off homerun which could be one of the first games I’ve stayed all the way through.
On Saturday our rec football league was supposed to start at 2pm but it was raining and there was uncertainty whether we’d play or not. The league didn’t call off the game and our team straggled to get to the game on time but eventually did. The Wevs forgot his cleats which was fairly comical. Not quite as comical as JKash’s cleats breaking during the first series causing him to play in running shoes. Bake threw a pick on the first series but was pretty sharp in the rain thereafter. We blew the team out 30-6 or something. It was messy and wet but quite fun.
I went to Ck4’s company’s tailgate party after that where they had nice catering, a magician, cornhole, and beer. We had a good time and then entered the game to watch a few innings. I was pretty beat while watching the game and went home in about the 7th inning. I could have gone out but I was happy I didn’t because football Sunday was near by.
I had action all over the place in the games and rather than go play by play I’ll break it all down quickly. I went 2-4 in NFL betting that lost me $53. I’m now 3-11 on the season for a loss of $-237. I also lost one college football bet which puts me at 6-3 for the season up $87. My fantasy football was again poor with another 1-3 week. My teams are becoming decimated by injuries (A Pete & Knowshon) and poor play (Colston & Torrey Smith) and a long season awaits. I have a little bit more action on Fanduel that will conclude tonight but aside from putting one good team together in a 50k person tourney, I didn’t do much. I’m in 1,400 place currently which will win 100 dollars and I have one more league that if Foles, Shady, Wayne, and Vinatieri go for 50 I’ll pick up another 60 which puts me at roughly even money for the season. Billy Horschel’s win was a saving grace through it all that won me +170 because I decided to put a 30 dollar hedge on Rory to win on the 4th day. The Bird’s play tonight so I’ll be happy to give a pick that you’ll want to choose the opposite of the way the season is going. I’m still pretty happy with the results though because I feel like I’ve been particularly bad to start the season so good times ahead.
I ran 10 miles yesterday at a pace that I was pretty pleased with. I have a decision on if I want to play football next Saturday because I felt pretty sore today and I want to be in top notch shape for the half on Sunday. If I can put in 2-3 more solid training days before the race I think 1:18 is a possibility. This is the easiest post to write but I know it’s not the best. I’ll try to deliver a few dynamite posts this week.
