Back on the Interwebs

So my internet connection at home is finally up and running again at full blast. It sure wasn't cheap though. Had to pay $190 to get a new OS on the PC and then bought an $80 2Wire modem from AT&T. But all in all, completely worth it, as I also upgraded my DSL plan so now I'm browsing at 3 times my previous speed. No more waiting minutes for youtube videos to load, haha!

I'd been doing most of my blogging from work as well as placing my bets there which meant that I had been missing out on all the early afternoon games so it's good to once again be able to play those, although I usually don't wake up til around 2pm anyway, lol.

I also just got done playing some poker online. Played a HU match and a 6.60 sng and played like a donkey on both. I decided to play some 10NL instead and ran pretty good ending the session up one buy in. I had a player on my table who was just absolutely god awful. He'd call pre-flop out of position with like 8-3 off and then call you down all the way to the river with 8 high. Won most of my big pots off of him. To bad I had to leave to give my dad a ride to work.

Man, I really need a new laptop. The one I have is just not doing it anymore. It keeps crashing and the wireless card is messed up. Even though I have the desktop at home, I still really need a laptop for work since the day goes by so slow when I don't have it with me. I know I said a couple of posts back that I was going to start saving up for a car but now I decided I'm going to save up for a laptop first and make that my last "big expense" before actually starting to save up for the car. I want something in the $800 to $1200 range optimal basically for browsing, poker, and some music. My boy Alex just bought one a few weeks ago to take with him down to U of I and it's completely sick. It's an HP that ran him I think $1100 so I may end up buying the same one.


Last night I had a nice 4-1 day on the baseball picks. I have no idea why I bet the Tigers and not Cleveland. For some retarded reason I decided to fade the 18-2 starter.

It's early right now, but looking at the board I've already got a smallish play on the Cubs and the Over on the game which is set at 10. I'm parlaying the two so I hope it works out. Cubs have been crushing the ball and Marquis has given up a ton of runs as of late so we'll see how that goes. A lot of soccer games later on tonight also so I'll definitely have more plays for the day.

Parlay: Cubs -0.5 & Cubs v. Pirates Over 10

Parlay: Santos v. Tecos Over 2.5 & Morelia (Pick)

Parlay: Atl. Madrid -0.5, Montreal -0.5, Santos -0.5 & Morelia -0.5

Cleveland -0.5


Day Profit: -$4.81

Day Record: 1-3

Total Record: 98-109-6

Bankroll: $108.00

Total Profit: -$92.00
