Thanks Imur. I don't bet much anymore. I prefer now to aggravate people enough so that they watch the game with an intensity in direct proportion to their desire to see my pick lose. To almost transform them into a fan of my pick's opponents. Make the game more enjoyable for them like when Tico slams the fridge door or Mac lurches forward in the chair in an attempted tackle on my pick's wide receiver as he surges along the out of bounds and dances into the end-zone before diving into the crowd where the fanatics gather.
Diving into the crowd here is punished with a yellow card. It has reduced such incidents but not stopped them.
Was it JPB who posted "groan"? That's enjoyable. Being cool and blase--allahkeefik the Arabs say--is no good. You need to be yelling at the screen.
And now for a Domino Pizza.
