This is going to be short, more of a PSA. I could not stand staying in the house any longer. After weeks of debate, I popped into Spirit Mountain with my really good mask. Bet MGM was on its opening day. I'm a total newb here. I have never been to or participated in Sportsbook at all. I don't even really watch sports. I'm sure at this point someone is laughing, but that's OK. After making a donation to VP, which had been generous, but no 4oak after a while is disheartening, and forgetting all my strategies and I'm sure ruining my payback, I fumbled over to Sportsbook and met an equally new person working on her first day. The two of us being the only women in this part of the house, she explained the Moneyline and Straight Bet to me and we both laughed at our inexperience. I bet on one game that day and a few that were coming up that week. I sat down and watched a baseball game on the biggest screen, and while I'm not an expert, I found it very interesting and soothing. Its a great afternoon escape. It was the most relaxing 2 hours I've had in weeks. Not only can you watch the TVs in comfortable chairs, but early Friday afternoon, there is no one there, and I imagine that won't last for long. Its nicer than going to the stadium and sitting in the hard chairs for hours. Moreover, when you hit the local watering hole on Friday night, its an added element of excitement to have some skin in the game. I plan on running some stat numbers this week and perhaps heading back in two weeks more prepared. As an unschooled sports observer, I have no selection bias and I think that will work to my advantage. I get why people like this and it's popular. Highly recommend. But not too much, leave a chair for me on Friday afternoon.
