Short Hiatus

I got completely raped on my picks on Monday and instead of digging myself out of the hole like I said I'd do, I ended up getting buried even deeper. Down $50 overall. Kinda hurts. And my overall record is preposterous. So I'm taking a short break although not entirely because I've been stinking it up. I'm going to focus on one of my other passions besides gambling for the next couple of weeks which is video games.

I finally went to purchase an Xbox 360 Elite yesterday. It was a really tough choice between the 360 and the PS3, but I think Xbox Live just has got so much more to offer that I think I made the right decision. It cost me a pretty penny too.

The grand total for an Xbox 360 Elite, a copy of Grand Theft Auto IV and a VGA HD AV cable was $599.46.

Yikes! Needless to say I'm in Brokersville, but definitely 100% worth it, considering how amazing the game looks, especially on my LCD monitor which is what I I dished out the extra $40 for with the VGA cable.

It also feels good to know that half of the $600 was paid using money I saved up the last couple of weeks from gambling winnings at work, including the $200 from the Boston game. So I should enjoy the system that much more!

Anyway, yea like I said taking a short break from the sports betting except maybe a couple of NBA play-off games, but I'll be back in a couple of weeks with the mentality that I'm owed $50 by my online bookies and I'll be back to collect, with interest.
