Oh and Victor, CHI got this tonight.

Not you,JB. You are cool. Others have been very rude and mean to him. I forget where I saw it. Maybe on this thread , too; but definitely on other threads.

GL to you JB -

That was  a tough loss, Whitesmith. I remember that one clearly. You handled it well.

Ya- looking back through the posts on here, this thread has been supportive of Somanyrings. I probably should not have posted that here at all.I just lost track. On some other threads that I saw, however, people were jinxing him and reveling in his misery. Now that was classless.

I watched the entire Jays game today and I was so happy when they won.  THEN I logged into covers and found out you bet on the Angels and your streak ended.  Really sorry to see that man, but look on the bright side, you're $1000 richer than all of us who've been trying this for years and have nothing to show for it, except a hat lol.  Good luck on your future picks!

Hedge your play/bet... Guaranteed win..If he bet $12,500 on Toronto he would be guaranteed $12,500 if Toronto won..and if LAA won like he picked, he would win the $25,000 and lose $12,500 therefore still profitting $12,500.
