Are you ready for the playoffs?
The trials and tribulations of my football betting.....now that the regular season is over, so is my football league. I ended up in shitastic 6th place for the year, which wins me......NOTHING! I did win first place for one week, and the winnings for that are more than the entry fee to play so I am up about $20 for that. Plus I had a side bet with Adam, this guy who used to work at my firm. I kicked his butt for the year so I sent him an email stating the obvious --->"Biatch, you owe me $40!".
God, I love kicking his ass.
Instead of paying me, he suggested paying my entry in a playoff fantasy league he's in. It is $40 to play (how convenient) and there are over 150 players. Rules are fairly simple, you pick whoever you want but can only pick up to 3 players per team i.e. no more than 3 Patriots can be on my team. Each guy on your team earns you points...yada yada yada. I'd already decided I wasn't going to join this fantasy league...so I declined. But that Adam just wouldn't give up with his trash talking...he wanted me to play and he wanted another side bet. Guys let this be a lesson to you. With a little persistence, I can be talked into just about anything. Well, not anything...
I joined the league and negotiated my
sure thing side bet with Adam. When Adam loses he has to buy a drink for me, Jenny, Josephine (not me) and Nicole. I'm playing for my girls! We wanted to meet up for drinks after work one day anyway. Why not have Adam buy the first round? :) If I should somehow lose Adam will get $30 or a round of drinks; his choice.
Okay now to pick my fantasy league. Remember that guy and his son that kicked my butt all year long? His name rhymes with Shwaffles. Anyway, not only did beat me here, but he gave me key advice in Lucki Duck's league TWICE that I choice to ignore and twice he was right. Therefore hold onto your hats, Waffles and Waffles Junior have made my picks! Waffles did them, and the boy wonder tweaked them. Funny thing is, so far I'm doing quite well and it's such a huge league!
