"Gambling is a game of points."
"I mean, one half-point too few or too many, you don't quite lay it. One full point for the home team or for the away team, and you don't quite cover. The points we need, are everywhere, around us."
And then a bunch of stuff about how we fight for that point in this article. We claw with our talons or something like that.
It's been a rough two weeks. Missing three games by 3.5 points left me looking like Tom Hanks when he lost his volleyball. I was unshaven, unwashed and feeling hopeless.

People need me (to mock). People are counting on me (to laugh at).
