You guys come talk to me about wind when you have to shovel your driveway three times in a week even though it only snowed once.

There are some moments in your sons life that they will never forget and will grow from.

This weekend Adrianís team was playing for the Northern California championships. In the final game they played against a San Jose team that they had been battling all year. In one of the most epic games in California Peewee history ( mentioned by several of the organizers) they lost 3-2 in the 4th overtime. One of the most exciting games you can ever watch.

After the 3rd OT they even cut/flooded the ice as the kids went in the locker room. Something they never experienced as that doesnít happen in Peewee. I can honestly say Adrian had one of his greatest games ever as he made 46 saves. Some dramatic ones in the overtimeís. 2 minutes before the goal he made a glove save that was just insane and had the whole building buzzing. The winning goal was a clear breakaway that he just got beat by a great shot.

In the end they fell one goal short, it was definitely a tough loss but they played their hearts out. The positive is they qualified for the State Championship in 2 weeks which is a huge accomplishment.

Itís hard to see the disappointment in the kids face after they played such an epic game, but after the initial disappointment wore off they were proud of what they accomplished and itís a game they will never forget and will be remembered in the history of these championships for a long time.

They still have a chance to be State champions in 2 weeks.

A gambling disaster

Before the playoffs started, I bet $100 on the Jags to win the super bowl. I was driving with my wife one day and mentioned the bet, and she said "I want to make a bet on the super bowl too". I was excited, as this is probably the first gambling my wife has ever done outside of slot machines in Vegas, and certainly the first sports bet.

"Great, Who do you want to bet on?" I asked.

"Tell me the teams"

So I listed off all 12 teams in the playoffs

and she said: "I want to bet on either the falcons or the Eagles"

I said: "Well, the falcons went to the super bowl last season and their team is almost the same. The Eagles lost their starting QB for the year and I think the backup is terrible, and I don't see any way they are going to win the super bowl, so I would bet on the Falcons, of those two teams.


She listened to me and bet $100 on the falcons. Now we are getting divorced.



ok, the last sentence isn't true, but the rest is, unfortunately, entirely true, and my wife may never bet on sports again. And if she does, she will definitely not be taking any advice from me.

Glad you won! I'll probably be scalin back the volume for the playoffs, since I never feel too confident on short slates, but we'll see how I feel about my lineup once the weekend rolls around.

After a $7 freeroll win in week 2, I finished the regular season with $915 in my account.

progression went something like this: 7/15/30/50/100/50/100/200/300/400/500/150/300/500/700/900. Only had 2 losing weeks, but 3 losing lineups, as I lost the thanksgiving slate and the main slate in week 12.

We had an amazing experience today. There is a local business owner who is also a pilot, and he recently started a program where heíll take kids with special needs up in a tiny 4-seater plane. Well, today Owen had the chance, and it was incredible. He got to sit right up front in the co-pilot seat, wearing a headset/mic and holding the steering wheel just like a real pilot. The (real) pilot was incredible with him, spending so much time explaining and showing him things, addressing him as ďcaptainĒ every time and just being all-around astonishingly kind and generous. He even has a person with him to take pictures of the whole event, though he insists on being the one to pick out his favourites to post online.

We actually thought he was just a very kind pilot who was probably getting some sponsorship from the airline company. Only when we looked him up later did we find out he is actually the owner of a great local pizza chain, and is actually funding the entire thing out of his pocket, including the photographer, runway fees, fuel costs, etc. And he does it ALL himself, including setting up appointments, texting me this morning to update me on wind conditions, etc.


#3763232 Us Politics For Betting (Not Talking About Politics)

agree, spot on.

This section from the article is something that I have always believed in, and the people I respect most in this world act like this:

You know how you can tell which guy in the room was actually a Navy SEAL?
He's the one that doesn't brag, doesn't threaten, doesn't engage in bluster. He's the quiet confident fellow in the back, the one you didn't notice. He doesn't have to prove anything to anybody, he knows who and what he is and he doesn't give a tinker's damn what you think of him. It's the swaggering pompous ******* spinning outrageous war stories and constantly trying to prove his manhood that's the fraud.
Those who've been there can tell the difference at a glance.
Those who haven't, listen to the fraud with rapt attention and eyes as big as saucers.

Jim Wright is an excellent writer, and pens a lot of essays for his site: Stone Kettle Station.

This article was particularly strong, IMO, and his one line really sticks with me and explains a lot about how he got elected: "Trump is what stupid people think a smart guy sounds like."
