Give A Little Bit

3/20/13 in   |   pigskinfan   |   40 respect

I didn't just "give a little bit" last night. I got spanked! It was really weird the way things happened too. I had St. Joe's rolling over the Johnnies, but E. Carolina was getting ambushed by Savannah St. Then, everything reversed course. I'm not real sure how St. Joe's blew their big lead, or how the Pirates battled back, but either way, just having one of them get pinched, and that happened to end up being St. Joe's, crushed everything. Kentucky just had no "want to" till too late in the going, and neither Liberty, nor A&T had shot as well in any game this season. I sure am glad they both waited until last night to find their touch.

 

 

There are going to be times like last night. It just seemed like everything lined up right in the stars to crush me. That's the way it goes. It's not the end of the world. There's always tomorrow, and tomorrow is now, so let's get to work on getting back in the groove.

 

 

THE NBA (1-3 ATS/1-3 SU/2-2 TOTALS last night and 11-12/11-11/9-14 so far for the week)

 

 

BUTTA (no play last night and 1-1 so far for the week)

Jazz/ROCKETS (O209) - After the "coldest" night of the year for the Rocks on Sunday, you can expect them to get back on track against the Jazz. Utah is also a team that wants to play fast and throw lots of bombs, so there will be lots of possessions, lots of shots and lots of fouls and free throws in this game. Reaching this number should be easy.

So, have you got your brackets filled out yet? I don't know why, but I've decided to wait this year till after the "Money Grab" games are completed tonight. I don't think it's complacency. I've just been spending all my time trying to prepare for The Madness, as well as the upcoming baseball season too. No rest for the wicked, as they say. Have a great Hump Day! I'll see you tomorrow.
