    Droppin Knowledge

    ...as the elder statesman here I feel an obligation to give back to the gambling community- You name it, i've been through it. As a bookmaker for 25+ years in 3 major metroploitian cities and former president of a Labor Union for 13 years for a major Airline's workers (Mechanics, ticket agents and Ramp) I know it all....and I travel for free. And I've been everywhere and done everything.. One week i'm betting trotters at HipÚdrom Son Pardo, the next I might be betting on Muay Thai in Manilla and the next i'll be painting a picture in a condo in Instabul. There are things I know, that many of you don't, I graduated magna cam laude from the school of hard knocks and i'm ready to share and discuss thing that will help you all out.

    Lesson 1: Girls don't like gamblers, sure you might get some mentally challenged crap, but real good women do not like talking about your bets. Its really boring to them. As a youth (17 years old) I had a one track mind, I went to the track everyday, I was a one demensional person and I wondered why I wasn't getting the quality pussy that my older brothers were getting- it was because I was boring. I would talk endlessly about horses losing by a nose, why I picked one horse over another and why the Cubs were gonna lose that day.. Nobody cares guys

    A well rounded person does a variety of things and has a variety of interests and experiences- Everyday for a few hours you need to put down the racing form, dog track program and sports stat sheets and get out and do something completely different.

    Broadan your horizons

    Ha...Hard to argue with that. Its nice to have a real person around to cook and clean, but that does come with a lot of baggage. I literally moved away from Chicago because 1) I thought I might end up in the trunk of a car, 2) because EVERY F*CKING WEEK one of my wifes nephews, niece's, cousins, seconds cousins, aunt, uncles, mom and dad had a birthday party, graduation or other function that I had to attend. And 3) The traffic- I bought my wife a home in the Suburbs at the age of 23, I paid cash. One day in our early 30's she was pregnant and she had to go to the doctor. We lived on Golf road in Hoffman Estates. I say good bye to her in the driveway and she pulls up to the stop sign on Golf road. I go inside, put on some porn, jerk off, then made a sandwich, ate it, then mossied outside AND SHE WAS STILL AT THE STOP SIGN TRYING TO GET ON GOLF ROAD!? I go up to the car and say are you ready...I saw and opening and yelled GO! GO! GO! her tires screeched and the car behind her honked and had to brake hard, but she got out on the road...That was it...It was time to move. I hate traffic and my in laws

    I could have a couple grand on a game and not even mention it to the people I’m around at the time.

    Why would you go on and on about something to people that they aren’t interested in?

    Yes..I was a shop steward, EAP guy, Treasurer, Committeman and then President.. I didn't survive the post 911 downturn in the industry...Retired

    They called me "The Legend" because I never lost in a hearing- I ALWAYS got the guy his job back- I got a guys job back who stole 250k in jewels, another almost a million in gold bullion and one guy who stabbed another guy in the break room. But mostly I sat in my office with friends smoking cigars, watching tv, playing cards, reading golf magazines and collecting parlay cards from a 10,000 member membership..
