The Association pick - TNT Thursday

Finally had a decent dollar day yesterday (though Duke - Maryland didn't help, and the Knicks win kind of brought me down, emotionally). Maybe I'll write a James Frey -like memoir (or is it a 'semi-fictional text'?) of my addictions and recovery. Except mine would be true, and recovery may not be an option. Anyways, lets build on the momentum, Association style

Another great Thursday with a limited slate of games. Thank you Teddy Turner (and Ernie, Kenny, and Charles). A couple of decent games are on TNT, with the Pistons visiting the Spurs in the early match, and Cavs at Lakers in the nightcap (while for some reason, the fun offensive shootout of the Warriors at the Suns is scheduled on this night as well, with no TV in sight east of Flagstaff). Right now, I really only like one of these lines:

Detroit Pistons at San Antonio Spurs, Over 177
I was thinking about the line in this game (Spurs -4), and my initial instinct said that the Pistons could easily win this game. But instinct #2 said this could also be an easy 8 point win for the Spurs, if the Flip doesn't have his boys ready to play. So instincts didn't help.

But looking at what these teams have done this year is impressive, from a scoring front. I think this line is being artificially dragged down by their Christmas meeting earlier this season, when the Pistons beat the Spurs in Detroit. However, Manu wasn't in that game, and you know he only adds points (at both ends of the floor). Take off the Undies, we're going Over....

My favorite online gambling sites are Bet365 and Pinnacle Sports:

Video slots on the web has a fan club of there own, people just can’t get enough. Even when news slots are launched by the different software developers they get a standing ovation and are attacked with an intensity of a wolf mother protecting her cubs. It is like the New Years sale in Bond street where the entire population of crazy housewife’s fight over every garment and will draw blood if need be.

Lucky us the since the slots are online there is no such thing as a queue and you can play when you want. You don’t even have to get dressed.

Not that this has any relevance to who plays slots and who don’t. There is clearly according to the latest polls more women playing slots then men. Men seem to drift towards the poker and table games. But here is something us men have to watch out for, they are coming. And they are also coming in swarms.

And since we men can not do more then one thing at a time (at least that is what the women say) we are in trouble. Take Blackjack, they should be better at handling two and three hands then us. Texas Hold’em is up for grabs because of the pace and many factors in the game. So when you are playing against a women you might want to hold on to your chips (and maybe your hart as well) she could end up owning both of them. Women know we are simple beings, and do have this factor over us when playing face to face. All men are suckers to a nice smile, so in all fairness any poker game that has both men and women in it should be played online.

At least you will not be distracted by that nice perfume drifting in from the women next to you. It is so faint but a man has certain instincts and will try to get a good sniff. So leaning in (ever so careful) I still get booted from a game for trying to look at other peoples cards. And I had a straight lined up. Even the big smile I got from the women next to me did not really soften the blow of getting booted. At least the dealer understood me and just told me to take a break for a while. That is my 2 cents worth on the topic of women and gambling.

Signing off for now and heading towards the slots, someone told me there is a good chance of meeting women there. At least that is what they tell me on
