    Also depends on the amount of the wager... what is the smallest WIN amount that will be satisfying ?

    Some people need hundred$ other maybe as low as 20.00

    Won't set myself up doing that because it interferes with the concept of enjoying the outing.

    The answer for me is D.

    But I RARELY go to live events. Better food/beer, cheaper food/beer, better view of the action, etc from home.

    I used to always have to have action on a game i attended (mainly NBA, NCAA football or MLB), Spurs, Longhorns and Astros. I usually go to a total of about 8-10 games a year.

    The last 4-5 years Iíve managed to stop wagering on events Iíve attended and I find the experience much more enjoyable.

    I will say I also try to not know the line for the game as well or Iíll just end up thinking too much about how I would have bet it.

    hey sammy

    here is what you do:

    1. go to a website and find a woman with a baby that likes golf

    2. take them to a golf tournament

    3. max bet a heads up round matchup

    4. carry the baby, it earns brownie points for a fukk later

    5. tickle the baby when the opponent of your golfer is mid swing

    6. PROFIT

    7. is later in the night with the woman




    OK????

    It is sad that for every game I see on tv or on my phone I know the spread.

    I haven't always, but like to

    For example went to a TB Rays game recently and made sure I wagered on it to add to the fun.

    This is what the sports leagues in the U.S. have turned a blind eye to for so long before PASPA got reversed.

    That a large percentage of a fan's interest in sports is based on them betting on it

    Now some of the leagues have finally realized it and why they're creating options for fans to wager in stadiums.
