holy cow, georgie girl, i loved your oakland pick +27-and-a-half, so i called my book and doubled-up on that one...that made it four units, since i was already doubling up with boston minus 5-and-a-half, and missouri minus 2-and-a-half. i thought i was doing great, so when you posted your hockey play, i called that in, and that's when i found out that i was on the wrong side of the number. i said, moreless, 'what are you talking about? oakland is a junior college in california...they should be GETTING 27 1/2 points, not giving them...that's not what i meant (oakland MINUS 27 1/2 points), can i change it?'
he laughed and somehow we were disconnected. so anyway, oakland was doing very well, and i thought they would probably cover anyway, so i figured since the phoenix pick in the nhl was a favorite, that they would win, so i also doubled up on that game, and i had to give odds on that play. i couldn't believe it when i found out that cemetary scored in the last two seconds to steal my money for the second time. then phoenix lost. so i lost more than ten additional units last night. but i couldn't decide whether to double up again since you are due, or to re-double (four times). so i think i will just triple-up since i am not sure. washington minus 2 1/2, and the new york rangers minus 123. unfortunately i had a family crisis to deal with earlier today, so i missed out on your first two picks that look pretty good.
