There was a skit that Roy Clark and Buck Owens did where they would play the banjo and guitar a little, then stop and tell a terrible joke.
Buck- "I'm a pickin!"
Roy- "And I'm a grinnin!"

With football season about to kick off (see what I did there?), I took a few minutes to look back at my sports handicapping results over the last year. Although I won't be retiring on my winnings, or making a living at it like Coach is striving to do, I was pleased with my results, so I guess you could say I was grinnin' at my pickin'... or something like that.
My hockey results are the most satisfying to me. After posting a losing year in my first attempt at handicapping hockey, I was able to turn it around for a $76 profit last season. Football was a little disappointing, but I still managed to book an $85 win.
Basketball was strong for me last season, adding $148 to my bankroll, but as expected, baseball was my most profitable, bringing in a $195 "windfall."
So, 4 for 4 on the major sports. Hopefully the streak will continue through another rotation!
The NFL season is just around the corner and I will again be hosting the NFL Picks contest. First prize will be another NFL team shirt. We'll have to see if anyone can unseat two-time defending champion Memphis Mojo. I'll put a post up explaining the rules and how to enter sometime next week.
Finally, a moment to thank all of you who visit this little corner of the interwebs. I appreciate you taking the time and especially look forward to your comments.
