This blog is meant to be the first to ever have a heavy emphasis on sports gambling, Big Ten athletics, and 42-time Emmy nominated sitcom, The Office. Well, it turns out blogging about a show that premiered over a decade ago doesn’t quite move the needle for degenerate gamblers, so that portion has been discontinued. We’ll always have that first blog together, though. Thank you to the four of you that read it!
I’m no expert on gambling. I don’t have some super complicated theorem or formula that I use to pick games and win a bunch of money. I’m just a Joe Shmoe that likes sports and likes the rush of money being on the line. And hell, if the picks suck, feel free to fade me. Either way you’re getting winners.
I grew up in the Midwest and went to a Big Ten school. I’ve been on two staffs at major Division-1 basketball schools, worked for a Big Ten football team, and in a sports information office.
I started this blog just because I’ve always wanted to write about these things, but I’ll write about whatever else I feel compelled to write about, too. If you’re reading this, you’re here, so read some of this shit and hopefully you’ll be mildly entertained for a few minutes.
