Hi, my name is Dan and I have a gambling problem

LOL - I have been doing my studying all season and doing really well. I started out with $200 back in August and parlayed it into over $1400...I am certainly not some big roller, but that's not a bad return. If I could afford more, I would certainly bet more.

So lately I've found some really obscure games to bet on. The fact is, these games are just as important for betting as the major and well-known games...

I won a boatload of money on a parlay when College of Charleston went into Boone, NC to take down Appalachian State. The stats were there...the Mountaineers are awful on defense and the scoring was up there.

Today, I LOVED Manhattan getting points from William & Mary. Let me say that again...I bet on MANHATTAN and WILLIAM & MARY - lol

That's disturbing, but I also once bet on a Duquesne-Robert Morris game - and I called my bookie on Christmas to bet the Blue-Gray game once, too.

I am betting on a more conventional game tonight and hoping for the best...Oklahoma -1 at Texas. Please, for the love of god, let that work out. I am still smarting from a charge call late in NO-LAL last night which gave Derek Fisher the opportunity to tie the game with a 3 and force overtime, screwing my under call.

Anyway, my friends make fun of me and say I should join GA...I shoot back with my favorite quote:


"It's only a gambling problem when you are losing."
