Quoth the Raven, "Never play parlays"

Looks like I wasn't the only one to be bitchslapped by Kyle Boller on a parlay. I was one minute away from collecting my $150 before the reincarnarnation of Captain Comeback strolled down the field. I'm sure that when Brian Billick gets around to posting his weekly diary on the Ravens web site, it will be all about how we saw the emergence of Kyle Boller, superstar. He probably won't mention that the drive should have ended when he overthrew Todd Heap, a pass which ought to have been easily intercepted, if not for an outstanding effort by the tight end. Oh well, that the Ravens continue to suck is no skin off my nose. Shame about the parlay, though. Winning the three totals bets helped ease my suffering.

I've started playing some poker again lately, mostly single table sit n gos. I expected to be a little rusty on my reads, but I got killed early on in by going all-in after a flop of rags with KK in two different tourneys, only to find one guy that flopped a set of 5s, and another that hit his third 7 on the river. A fine welcome back that was. So, I'm slightly down on my return as I try to find my rhythm again.
