what is thing I’m watching with a ball and baskets


Dumb Luck

The Kentucky Derby was yesterday so I went to the local track. I decided before I left I was going to bet $20-25 on the race. I also knew which horses I would bet on Hold Me Back and Advice. I arrived at the track and about 25 minutes to the race I found an open betting machine and bet $8 on each horse and got a $4 voucher for the left over money I did not use.

The plan was to find a different race to use that for. I walked around for a while looking for a race to bet but the TVs were all crowded. Then the plan was just cash in my voucher but all the lines were too long. I saw an open betting machine and decided to place another bet on the derby. I placed the $4 on a long shot Mine That Bird to show and found a place to watch the race. The race started my horses where all towards the middle of the pace but once they made the turn for home I saw a horse charging from the rail. The horse ran passed everyone and won easily and then I realized it was one of my horse Mine That Bird.

The $4 bet turned into $51.60 so I took my $31.60 profit and went home.

Thoughts after 2 games of Spurs/Mavs

The first game started out well for the spurs jumping out to a 13 point lead. Then the benches came in and the spurs got destroyed. I liked how Duncan looked good despite the loss.

The second game Parker and company jumped out early and never looked back. Parker lead the team in scoring with 38.

The series is tied going to Dallas I think game three could be key a spurs win get home court advantage back.

 Like everyone I think Cleveland wins the east.
