Super Bowl Results

All in all, a very nice Super Bowl for me last night. I won $200 from Luis (he gets my Sidekick), $50 from Alex, $50 from Mauricio, $45 from Kobe2Odom8 (dude from the FCP forums), and $20 from BookMaker for a total profit of +$365 on the game.

The BookMaker play was Arizona +6.5 and I actually wanted to unload a lot more than $20 but ultimately decided not to, which sucks.

Now, you would think that after an almost $400 profit weekend, I'd be pretty damn happy. And I would be if it weren't for the fact that my Xbox 360 died on me yesterday morning. I got the infamous red ring of death which basically means the system is dead and the only way to revive it is to send it in to Microsoft to have it fixed. Who knows when I'll see my system again once I send it in. From a bit of online research it could take anywhere from a week and a half to over a month.

Going a month without my Xbox is like asking me to go a month without betting on anything. It just ain't gonna happen, lol. So if Microsoft tells me it's going to take more than a month to fix when I call them tomorrow, I'm probably going to buy the Xbox 360 Arcade version for $200 and then resell it when I get my Elite back.

Anyway I'm out. About to head to the movies but I do have a play on the Lakers just for the sake of it.

Lakers -5.5......$10

Day Profit: +$9.09

Day Record: 1-0

Total Record: 206-204-18

Bankroll: $169.09

Total Profit: -$30.91

my bad i didnt see your comment yesterday til now. yeah, i'm not sure what i was thinking by not making the lakers a play. -5.5 is a gimme against the garbage knicks. not sure if i'll see a line like that ever again.

and on hindsight, yeah i should of let the jazz play it out cause they covered! lol

oh well, i'm sticking with this thing called discipline to get me back into the greens before i can start gambling again cause i miss it so much lol
