Blackpool has had a pretty good run as well, being in the lowest league in 2001.

I root for Fiorentina in the Italian Serie A, and they dropped from being compettitve for the top of the best division to the fourth tier in the early part of this decade. They had to declare the Italy sports version of bankruptcy, sold off a bunch of their better players (well, they couldnt pay anyone anyway), kept a couple, and then worked their way back to Serie A over the course of the next couple of years. Its a strange sordid story full of Italian soccer politics, but it was an impressive feat all the same.I have good friends over there whose allegiance is not far removed from the Serge-like devotion realm. Naming of firstborn kinda stuff, but it works well in Italy.

there is another whole semi-professional system here. the top tier of which is known as 'the conference'. teams that go up from the conference then become professional.

He bet $95.46. He won $2,027.09 plus his bet back (total - $2,122.56).Basically, he picked 5 games and bet one team would score in the first inning for each. I can't tell if it was an E/W bet or straight parlay.
Long signatures are really annoying.

Got back from the CNE poker room. It was brutal I got sucked out so many times on guys fishing for flushes. Also a guy hit his trip Queens on my Kings. My mind was blown away and I was not in the right frame of mind.Saw Bryan of the Red Ravens. Also I was sitting beside this blond lady (mid 40s and okay looking). She asked me if I was Chinese or Korean. She then told me that her partner was Chinese. I was like HUH, "PARTNER????". I then switch tables to play 10/20 with my buddy. I should have stayed with the other table.

I love limit.Lol @ getting mad at losing to flush draws though, you understand flush draws have like 20-30% equity depending on when it is in the hand, and they're basically never not getting the odds to call, right? Backdoor flush draws alone even have the correct odds sometimes.

I also prefer limit as I grew up playing the game. I was playing limit holdem before most of these no limit guys heard of texas holdem.Limit is a much more complicated game than it looks..No limit players are always making the wrong plays, they almost never fold on the river and lose a lot of bets..Limit is about saving bets and making value bets ..

Yes I do understand the odds. Why however does everyone always hit their draws against me. I really don't mind losing to good flush draws but when it is 4-2, q-6, etc. I run so frickin bad.

Well, you never see when they miss their draws. It's just selective memory, is all.
