Starts tomorow. I've given the the day to day operations to my kids and will just be a call away with any problems that could occur. Both good kids and I feel very confident in them both.
Always loved sports and poker.. Thirty five years ago was a total degenerate casinos, sports and always wanted to become a professional gambler. The birth of my son changed all that and was then I started my own business and with hard work became a success. With my wife's blessing I'm able now to try and pursue my dream.
Looking online I came across this great site with all of the info and great free contests I joined. I've depoisted online and will be playing online poker starting at the lowest stakes being I've never played online before. Also purchased poker tracker to help with my game. Sports bets with a local ive connected up with and casino for live poker.
So here we go! Going to start with some online .05/10 and placed my first bet in years.
Jazz -4 -110 110/100
Be back tomorow with more picks and a update on tonight's online poker.

How do I just put the picture instead of the link? Fun day to bad no rides or games open yet. I'm a sucker for the horse race and water ballon game. Aquarium was nice. They are making it all new and when done will be a even better place to take the family too. 
1-0 last night +$100 sports betting. $5.52 online poker. 
Today I gave 2 early MLB games and a slight lean late game.
1st play reds -115 175/162.50
Like the kid Garett and reds 5-1 on the road. Snapped that 4 game losing streak and
I think Garza is done. Reds get revenge dropping 3of 4 at home.

2nd play. O's ev 175/175
Jimenez bounced back last outing pitched 7 strong innings. 
Rays 1-6 on road like there a different team
Some online poker later glta!

Day 3. Slept a little later was up at 630 lol. Soon I'll be able to sleep a little more. Wanted to start cleaning up backyard but rain here in bklyn have to wait for another day. Started looking over today's MLB action got 3 leans waiting for better prices. 1-2 yesterday even got the week on sports. Played some online .05/10 last night and won $11.08. Up $16.60 feels like old times. Playing super tight game seems too easy. Hope to get out Friday or Saturday for some live 1/2. About to eat the best pizza in bklyn. Highly recommended! Be back later with MLB picks.

Phil, congrats on retirement.

Personally, I don't condone gambling for anyone with a lot of time on their hands.

I know there aren't many good golf courses in Brooklyn ... have you thought about becoming a ticket taker on the Cyclone?

Too much time on my hands! Up early again. Was up late watching dodgers, the jazz game and some online poker but my body clock is killing me. Another rainy, dreary day here in bklyn. Going to eat some of the squares left over from yesterday. The wife wants to go to the mall get some summer clothes etc. I guess that will kill a few hours. 

4-3 sports yesterday -23.40. Ytd 6-5 -23.40. Played 2nd half Utah didn't post 69/62.70 helped out. Wife went out last night so needed to bet on what I was watching. Two tough losses with both Keyshaw and Cole. No run support for either. On a night note 550 hands played with a 42.02 winrate bb/100. I have a large enough bankroll to move to .10/25 but it's been years and I figured I would play at least 5000 hands first before I moved up.

Off to the mall. Got 1 play for the afternoon 
ASTROS -105 75/71.40. Hous 8-2 L10 7-2 road hottest team in MLB!

Oil change, rotate tires,top off fluids,car wash and new freshener. Cars like new. 
Got home in time to see the phillies hold on! Watching some tv with the wife and hoping she goes to bed so I can watch the A's game.

Some online poker next let's see if we keep that win streak going
We decided to hit the parx casino. It's the nearest casino to us. If we were staying overnight it would be ac. Anyone play at parx how are the games there?

Ytd 8-7 +48.90 
Like the A's +104 160/166.40

It's a beautiful day out here in bklyn! Got up early started on the back yard. Power washed the deck and the ground looking brand spankin new. After much conversation and 19 years living in our 1st house we have decided to sell. The children have left and we can scale down. The neighborhood has changed and right now we can get a very good price on the house. Where too I don't know. But a warmer year round climate is what I would like.

Off to parx casino today. I see $500 high hands every 30 min starting at 6. Bad beat at $276,000 quad 6s or better. Plan on playing 1/2 buy in for 300 and another 300 in case. Games soft here? Everyone playing atc for the high hand?
Can't wait been awhile since I've played any live poker.

Yesterday 1-1 -$23.60. Ytd 8-8 -111.10
As couldn't score yesterday. Lost $20 online. First losing session so far. Once I figure out how to post the hands I will. Was ahead both times maybe I just played it wrong welcome some advice.
MLB today: Cubs -114 45/39.50  
Brewers -123 45/36.60
Phillies. +164 45/73.80
Happy Friday glta!

Congrats on making it to retirement. I've got four years to go barring the unforseen. Just have to continually remind myself to keep my eye on the prize.

Friday just killed my weekend in terms of doing anything else. No more 8-9 hr session. No more way past my bedtime. I realize I have time to do what i want
But I don't want to waste a minute of it. Problems with car again. Antifreeze leaking out. Hope they can fit me in early for repair. 

1st week recap
Sports betting 10-17 -$434.30
Live poker -$132
Online poker +$ 28.90
Not a good 1st week. If only had left 6 hrs in at poker would have had a positive week. Lesson learned! 

Got two for today 
Os +115 50/57.60
Porcello not the same pitcher as last year. Bundy had pitched well in 2 starts already vs Boston. Like Os as small dog.

Pirates -120 50/41.80
After a hot start reds have gone 2-8. I'll take Gerritt over Garrett in this one. Cole is looking like the Cole of 2015.

Long day at car dealership. Happy to report after 2 visits problems seem to be solved. Got another few months before I can break my lease and get a different car. No more chevys again!

Wife nagging me "you staying up late watching sports". I told you you couldn't make any money with this gambling nonsense blah blah blah blah Giving me a headache lol. I will admit that I'm not using proper bankroll management and if I want to last the whole MLB season I have to keep within the limits I set. 

Tues 0-3 -$316.60 week 1-4 -$309.10 Ytd 11-22 -$1243.80
More than a quarter of my bankroll wtf? Here comes the winning streak!
Tonight's plays
Yankees +104 16/16.60
Reds +111 16/17.80
Tigers +143 16/22.90
Braves +122 16/19.50
Padres +122 16/18.50
Online poker tonight!
