"That 2-hour call-in show off of blogtalkradio was one of the most ambitious things I've ever witnessed here. It was over the top amazing to listen to. Again, you two may have cracked "hockey talk sports radio" (and you're not regulated by the FCC, not obligated to talk about a certain topic, and can accidentally cuss and swear)."

csla95Great job on yesterday's picks as you are now doing just as good with the sides as the totals. Had a question if you will be doing a March madness package deal for next month or is it only your 30 day all access package we will have to purchase to get those games?

Of any big win we have had, or winning streak, or even coming out of a losing streak, of this I am most proud:
Some forum posters have broken into the industry and have achieved moderate success while carrying themselves with professionalism and integrity. Dave Essler, of the pick-selling site Pregame, immediately comes to mind.

csla95 kids will definitely do that to you as I have 5 of them
pablor, like ppl who do this full time stress; think of it as an investment. You should have the bankroll where you are making a small investment to get information about where to invest your money, just like some ppl get paid to give stock advice. The info they pass along can lead to a good long term investment. Don't think of it as winning and losing, more as a small piece of your money growing larger over time, where it can fluctuate in the short-term. Hope that helps.
You are free to feel/think any way you want. I'd be disappointed as well. My reaction to it might be different, or it might not. As you may or may not know, years ago I bought plays, so I know what the expectations of most people are. There have been more than the USCB game that have fallen short of said expectation in the last couple of weeks. I could go on about what we've done the last year, two or three, but that does not matter to most people. I know that.
One thing I will say, though. Most bettors that people follow feels badly when plays lose. Probably more than they should. Most bettors that people follow feels great when plays win. Probably more than they should. The sun rose today. My kids still love me. My dog wagged his tail. But, it's how we feel that and how we act (or don't) on those feelings that defines us.
Let me ask you this, which is not meant to take away from the game(s). If USCB had won outright, would you have said what a great job we did? If they had lost on a buzzer-beater would you have questioned the call at all? If every other play won and only that one lost, would you feel the same way?
If Chris Eversley, CP's best player, had played, they may have won by even more. He did not play, which was not common knowledge prior to tip, so I made the bet. Much to my chagrin Dylan Royer could not miss three point shots, especially after it was a three point game with 15:00 to play. It was a seven point game with 8:00 to play. I "feel" like going on, but I also "feel" like it would be, at this point in time, not the highest and best use of my time.
When we win we have more clients. When we lose we have less. When we win, people think we walk on water. When we lose people think we cannot swim in said water. the truth is probably somewhere in the middle.Thanks for the opportunity to address this, and again my bad on the USCB bet.
