    I'm so lucky

    Thank goodness I have Joep as a friend....LOL. He is always there to watch out for me.

    I may make a friendly little wager with you that I come out on top for todays action if you are interested.

    And you missed one I added, now 16 games. I added big play 40* Iowa over Minn.

    Basketball Pick

    I like Dallas at home tonight to defete the un-beaten Det. Pistons.

    Line is:

    10* Dallas -2.5 over Det.

    So far my college football games have been hitting today (big games anyway). Looks like Joep may have saved money not betting me...LOL.

    What a day

    Joep your a very lucky man you didn't book my plays today. I tried to take you up on your offer, good for you you didn't take them...LOL.

    Going by the Stars (each star being a unit) I would be up over 110 units up in football for the day and my biggest play Fresno St. is winning at the half outright, plus they are getting 27 points and that is a 50* pick.

    I just missed my 5 teamer (TX-El-Paso was the only loss).

    Plus I won another 10* on Dallas Mavericks tonight over unbeaten Detroit Pistons in a blow out.

    Fresno St. ended up covering for my big pick yesterday. That put me up 160 stars in football and 10 more for the NBA.
