    I think this has to be my favorite thing in sports. I can't think of anything else that quite matches the intensity and just plain craziness. It's almost to the point that I don't like OT because you have this feverish finish and then have things calm back down for a few minutes, but then hopefully you get to go through it all again.

    It is wonderful, unless you're a gambler. That's when shit gets broke.

    One of many, many reasons I don't gamble.

    If I did, I'd be dead by now wit ha heart-attack somewhere in my mid 20s.

    I'll take the last minute of a close basketball game any ole day of the week over the last minute of a decided basketball where the ATS winner is still up in the air. Losing a spread-bet in a basketball game on a garbage time three pointer is a scenario that will definitely result in me breaking shit. And, in fact, it happens with enough frequency that I largely quit betting ATS in basketball. 85% of my plays in CBB are on the moneyline. And I'm not ever going back.
