37 years young. Started betting about 9-10 years ago. Finally had my first real winning football season last year thanks to TS. However, I probably gamble for more money on the golf course. I hope this site cleans up a bit before football as we do not need the distractions. Perhaps a nice big "put up or shut up" football contest will help sort out many of the serious loser types we now have to deal with on a daily basis.

As always, Good Luck

51. Played alot of poker while I was in h.s. Read "The National Football Lottery" (I forget the author but it was by some sportswriter from Philly I think) in about 1972 and I was hooked. I handicapped for a year before I finally found a bookie.

After a couple of bad experiences with older, experienced bookies I decided to take book myself. Floated my own lines in football, basketball & baseball. Went broke in the hoops and bases (I managed to pay off all before I went out of business) but always made $$ on football. I am best at football, although I still maintain if you have enough customers on football, you can't help but win as a football bookie.

Went out to Vegas in the fall of 1975, 77 & 79. (Stayed in Bob & Betty's Strip Motel on 201 East Utah Avenue - wonder if it's still there). Was in Reno in the fall of '82. Did well but football season always ended and then I had to scrape for a living for the other 7 months.

Got married and had kids at the late age of 40, which cramped my handicapping quite a bit.

Am now wrestling with ways to make a difference in the world. I'm not getting the kick out of handicapping the way I used to. Something is missing. I only have so much time left and I would like to do something that makes a mark - above & beyond being a good father to my kids. I'm starting to feel hollow even when I win.

I'm not sure what this all means but I don't know how long I'll be handicapping. Am gearing up for the FB season just in case - like I've always done since '72 or '73. It's become a ritual for me every summer. In my most successful FB seasons, I went into a season as if I was going to war. I don't have that attitude now and I'm wondering if I'll survive. Maybe training camp will get the juices flowing again.

It's been a good thread and it's interesting to find out how old you people are. Always figured $$$man & Big$$$ to be older, and Michaelangelo to be younger.

Peace.

PIX2CLICK-It crossed my mind to put evryone in age groups, but it looked too much like grandfathers, dads and sons. So as members submitted that's how I entered them in and will update that way.

Sounds good to me. I`ll report the sixties catagory.
Mandrake 61, Old Smokey 62, and Horse Player 65.

That was easy.

W.R. Don`t have a clue about Coll. F.B. being from north of the border, but I hope you don`t mind me using your choices.

Good luck everone, and have a good year.

H.P.
