November 14th, the day of a couple of stupid points

Fuck! I was just a few points away from going up a good amount — I had a ten pick teaser that would have won 50 dollars on a 5 dollar bet, and a single bet that would have won 5 dollars on a 5 dollar bet that rested on the SA Spurs/Houston Rockets game. With 2 minutes left in the game, the Spurs were up 82-73 against the Rockets. The total was for 178 and there were 2 minutes left to go in the FOURTH QUARTER. 3 points in the final 2 minutes of the fourth quarter of a relatively close game is almost certainly a lock. But, behold, only one point was scored in the final minutes to make the final score 82-74. That started my anger as I ended up losing 10 dollars intead of making 55.

This only perpetuated some poor choices trying to recapture what I lost — 12.50 on Gonzaga, 5.79 on Davydenko, and 7.50 on Robredo — that I only ended up losing. That’s another 25.79. I ended up 5 dollars under where I started: 77 dollars, when It looked like I would go up to approximately 200 dollars.
