@/4 last week. Broke even. 25/31, $1800/$1000. 80% ROI…it was 90% with a low of 40%. If this were real money, i’d quit here too.

Let’s see what’s on tap for Saturday:

#25 Pittsburgh at Duke 12:00 PM ACCN: My beloved Panthers lost to the criminal element last week in one of the WORST officiated games that I have ever seen. This week they are at Duke and are 21 point favorites. They won’t cover.

#13 Auburn at #14 Texas A&M 3:30 PM CBS. This is going to a fantastic football game. Auburn is a 5 point dog and should cover in this one.

#3 Michigan State at Purdue 3:30 PM ABC. Obviously, I am missing some vital info here or something. Sparty is only a 2.5 point favorite. Uh, no. They cover.

Tennessee at #18 Kentucky 7:00 PM ESPN2: Well, Rain, yinz’s vols went from 1.5 point dogs to 1 point favorites. This is a yuge game for both sides. My pick: The Vols cover on the road! All is not lost in Vol Land!

#4 Oregon at Washington 7:30 PM ABC: Something seems very odd about this. The Ducks are only 7 point favorites…I don’t know what to do here. This looks too easy…unsure if I am betting this one. Will update. How about the Ducks cover.

5 years ago i walked into a sushi bar…ok, it’s an opening for a great joke. It is.

That said, I sat down and looked over the menu and got my order together. The guy next to me was with his wife and they were just back from Central America, tanned in February. It was noon on a Wednesday. Since days of the week are a joke to me but the months aren’t, tanned? I looked like a ghost.

He had a box of unmarked cigars with him. As we were confined in the sushi area we started talking about travel and places we had been. He didn’t want a trade for one of his smokes. He gave me one out of the box. He said that he and his friends get a few hundred a year, every year from the same place in Honduras.

I let that cigar sit in my high end humidor for 5 years. I smoked it just now, well, it took 90 minutes. It was excellent. Almost like a Fuente Long Story….

enjoy your day

WOOOT! 2-0 last week. Big win for PITT at home! now: 23/29 $1800/$1000. 80% ROI…it was 90% with a low of 40%. If this were real money, i’d quit here too.

Started a brisket last night at 2000, its finishing in the oven and will be done around noon.

Let’s take a look at the games today.

#6 Michigan at #8 Michigan State 12:00 PM FOX: Are the Spartans legit? The battle for Michigan has M as a 4 point favorite. I think MSU can cover and it’s a party in Spartyland today!

Miami at #17 Pittsburgh 12:00 PM ACCN: YINZ SEE THIS???? My beloved Panthers are #17! They are 9 point favorites versus the criminal element from the U. Of course. if Miami were ranked this game would be on one of the networks, but, yet again, Miami was grossly overrated. 9 points? Pitt is coming off a YUGE win versus Clemson last week and won’t cover this week. I sure hope I’m wrong and Pitt blows out the criminal element.

#9 Iowa at Wisconsin 12:00 PM ESPN: Iowa is only a 3 point favorite??? The corn-fed Iowa Hawkeyes cover at Camp Randall.

#20 Penn State at #5 Ohio State 7:30 PM ABC: PSU’s quarterback is still injured but is staring. PSU is a 19.5 point dog. 19.5? yep, OSU covers while PSU continues to collapse.
