    Yeah too bad Hammered up Hank has been on tv for about 40 years. Stayed in his lane the whole time and has my respect as an handicapper.

    Good guy but based on his picks, not too sharp. Bookies are definitely mourning.

    Do you type shit just for the sake of typing shit?

    Goldberg was .500 or better in 15 of 17 NFL seasons while predicting games at ESPN.

    It was the last year he was on there. He was brutal. That is what sticks with most people. The Bear from ESPN did have a story about Hank won so much money on a horse race he had to have a security escort out of the building.

    On the major networks absolutely. That ESPN daily wager makes a fool out of anyone associated with the business. That Doug Kezerian is the biggest f*** hamburger Iíve ever seen in my life.

    One of the Godfathers of sports betting along with the Greek! Had a great sportstalk radio show on WQAM in Miami for years - listened all the time. His last on-air selection was via phone on Daily Wager for, appropriately enough, the Kentucky Derby. Kidney disease took him down - RIP to the big man...

    They used to have those air horn sound effects and everything.
    Correct, it was an eighth grade juvenile production.

    Show me one of those "Daily Wager" shows where they LEGITIMATELY track results over time (like a year). No way in hell those any of those clowns is clearing a profit.

    VSIN's old show used to be the only one that was maybe, maybe half legit.
    All the other's, clown shows.

    Seems like Hank lived life on his own terms, which is better than most:

    You gotta go to the Podcast world. There are a few sharp guys that are legit. Vsin has a program that they have been tracking their plays for 4+ years and they have winning records. They donít claim to be professionals either. Not going to mention any by name cuz once they get mainstream they will turn into a sh** fest. You could take a look on your own though and Iím sure you would find something useful.
