About

I am a Toronto sports fan, therefore I hate sports.

When the economy collapsed that hate for sports turned to love as my unemployment allowed me to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a lonely degenerate gambler.

Betting is the only rationale way someone can love sports. Sure you were a Red Sox fan for 70 years, but do you think Johnny Damon cared when he signed with the Yankees. At least with betting you get something out of it.

So after I got the boot from my company I spent two months in Reno and Vegas learning the ins and outs of sports betting from all sorts, bookies, cappers, oddsmakers, and degenerates of course . And sure after a big loss or two I was disappointed, but it was my own doing as opposed to some whinny baby crying about wanting to go to New Jersey.

Now back in the Real World I hope to bring some humor and insight in my path towards Middle Age Degeneracy.

Basically when you bet on sports, everyday is the Super Bowl and I hope to take more sports fans into this world, because seriously how do you watch this stuff without money on the line. I don't understand.

Aside from Sports Betting I'm bootleg internet famous (even though for the longest time i tried to stay hidden). I wrote a couple of entries with my high school bookie Christian Lander on the blog turned New York Times Bestseller Stuff White People Like. Mostly known for writing the controversial asian girls post, which was meant to be an inside joke, I didn't realize 50 million people would read it and threaten to kill me. No regrets though as I am still alive and my involvement in SWPL has helped jump start my gambling bankroll.

Silly Links that mention me
- Oprah.com write up and radio link
- LA Times Article
- Review from Variety
- Globe and Mail article
- Nerve.com rated my post the #8 Buzziest Blog Post of All Time (I have no idea what that means, but I'll take what I can get)
- Me signing autographs at USC with my University of Nevada shirt lol!!!! Where's Joe Mcknight?

Oh and I periodically post my plays either on me and my friend's gambling blog Welfare Wednesdays and time to time I write articles at covers.com

    Hey Myles,

    I am your fan now.

    The US Open Draw is released. I've analyzed the Men's draw, in addition to the Top Ten players' form and recent performance, and made some projection in an unconventional way.
    Check it out. I am sure you'll like it.
    Thank you so much,

    I am really pleased with the reaction to this article I wrote last night, just to blow off steam from a long day at work. I didn't really pimp it at all, but since it's gotten a good response I thought I would push a bit. Take a look if you have time today. Thanks

    I would be interested in getting your perspective on this touchy-feely article about rooting interests and fantasy baseball. Here is the intro I am posting for most:
    If you participate in fantasy baseball, then you should read my latest. It will help you in those difficult times when one of your hitters faces one of your pitchers. Thanks for checking it out.

    Thanks for checking out my site. The Expos game in Montreal was one of the more surreal experiences I've had in sports. I'm glad I made it though before they left town. Totally respect that you are persuing sports gambling as a profession. I've never been good enough, or disciplined enough.

    The more I thought about the Hornets recent historic loss, the more I wanted to find where it fit in the pantheon on historic losses. Here is what I found- check it out when you have a chance.
