Been on the Cubs season ticket waiting list for probably ten years. Got notice that I would have an opportunity to purchase this year. I politely declined. Team on a multi year rebuild, high price tickets with low quality talent, gutted the team of players I've followed for years and, oh yeah, there's still a freaking pandemic raging.

Greetings!

Very nice weather week ahead, another week closer to spring.

Thinking about adding to my Georgia wager, points still sitting at -2 1/2.

I don't trust betting against Saban. Georgia obviously needs to make adjustments for tonight, which I'm sure they did. I'm just rooting for the defenses! 😀

Yeah how many times can you drive to Chicago? And pay to park? Actually I can take care of that for him but still.

Interesting. I'm surprised you've had to wait that long. Quite surprised. Tickets are pretty easy to get now but I don't like that electronic ticketing thing. You actually can buy a paper ticket at the box office but I think they charge you a few bucks extra. 

Oddly, last season I went to more games there than I think I ever have and I only paid for a ticket once. 

Once you get there leave your wallet in your car cuz they are gonna get you of course.

The wait was longer because they were building a very competitive young team leading up to 2015-18, plus the success of those years. Even since then they were playoff caliber. Starting mid-season to end of last year not at all. People realize that they're in a rebuild, hence season ticket availability. Plus, gutting the team of players that the fans followed. Single game tickets were probably easier to get. Season tickets automatically get you in for the playoffs, so season tickets harder to acquire.

Watched the Hophead Series video of the West Wedding Video in Chicago 1991. Warren & Woody jamming with Junior Wells, pretty awesome!

Had an optometrist appointment yesterday.  After cataract surgery on both eyes, and having one lens cleaned off already, I am back to 20/20 vision .... still need readers for small print, but everything else is fine.

Yeah I did. I won the pool I was in so that was $500 and my pal wanted to take the over and Bama. I figured i would win the O/U so I just took UGA for the heck of it. Worst thing I could do was push. Won both of those anyway. So $550 for an evening was okay.

At halftime when the score was so low I changed the channel. 😉

Today was indoor golf day - played pretty well, not as good as last week. Fairly warm and sunny here, got rid of a lot of snow/ice.

Wott up?

Another supposed snow storm didn't occur. I think we've had maybe two inches of snow this "winter."

May bust out some BCS for the playoff games this weekend. Still have some 2015, 2017, 2018 and the most recent run. The 2015 should be all done brewing by now. Probably 20% strength by now. Surprised

coot - Got any picks for this weekend? 

Of the six I like three. 

Pats +4. Hard to bet against Bill

49ers +3. Don't like it a lot, just a funny feeling

Rams -4. Stafford has to win a playoff game once in his life.

Actually I like Buffalo. NE had a nice stretch mid-season but struggled at the end. Plus, a lot of the early season success of Jones faded away. I like the under in that one too.

I like the Niners but it's not a strong load 'em up bet.

My favorite of the weekend is Tampa Bay. Philly hasn't really beaten a good team all year and if Hurts gets shut down like I think he will, where does any other offense come from?

Props didn't work but the Bills brought home a nice score! Plenty to work with for tomorrow's games. Cool

The Tampa / Philly line is 7.5 at the moment. I might buy the half point to take Tampa minus seven. I think they should crush Philly but just to play it cautious I just might do that.
