(Unfortunately, they are not the tax deductible kind.)
Since my one day record on Sunday, it's been a downhill week. Monday and Tuesday were a wash, one winner and one loser.
Wednesday was a moderate loser, thanks to my blissful ignorance of Carmelo Anthony's suspension. He scored zero for my rosters and I lost several contests by less than ten points. Oops.
Thursday was a big loser, my biggest in a few months. Sidney Crosby got hurt, and I was swept in all 14 hockey contests I played. It happens.
The bad night really put a dent in my October ROI. While I'm still on pace for a record month, it stings a little.
I won a few hoops contests but I am still on a learning curve. I'm hoping the lessons will not be too expensive.
While I have no expectations of repeating last Sunday's monster success, a winner would be nice to get me out of this funk.
Football plays: CFL, Hamilton @ Edmonton (-6.5). Playing out the string. NCAA, West Virginia (-3.5) @ UConn. Big East title is wide open race. NFL, Steelers (+1) @ Redskins. Pittsburgh should contain big plays. [2008 YTD 15-21-1 <--- Thanks, Arizona for the fake FG try.]
