the bet: week 16

Wow, what a season of ineptitude by yours truly. Not only did I disappoint GT by failing to post for the previous two weeks, I am 1/15 on my parlays in this competition (fuck Alabama). The current standings are not pretty. I am down 103.05 and Ryan is down 17.43. Gambling is harder than it […]

The bet: week 12

What is the point of trying? I am feeling a bit like Gus, the world is against us and it may be time to give up. Two parlays go belly up, one because the Vikings can’t beat the lowly Lions and the other because Josh Allen can’t force Mac to whip out his cannon and […]

the bet: week 10

Happy Thanksgiving Wasted Talent. Things are not going well in fantasy or gambling. The standings: Ryan -$14.30, Josh -$90. Ouch.

Big losses all around last week with the Colts busting Ryan’s under and the Bills screwing me in more ways than one. Josh, -$70, Ryan $5.70. This is a big pivot week (like every week) because I just need to hit one bet. When did parlays not hit over 50% of the time? Josh Parlay […]

The Bet: week 5

Recap: Fuck the Bills and despite Ryan’s wishes, Josh did not change his ways. Just a reminder, this is the THIRD week that a single leg busted all parlays (6 total parlays busted (Alabama and Steelers responsible for the other busts)). Those are the unfortunate swings. FUCK THE BILLS. Adding insult to injury, the Cowboys […]

The Bet: Week 3

Week 2 was a week to forget for many of us. The Titans, a key bet for Ryan and I, lost to the god damn Jets and busted both parlays. The only ones happy with that result are Frank, who goaded me into taking a stupid bet, and Gus, who does not have to deal […]
