    Much thanks for the update....................do not believe Gronkowski has a chance, but he would have taken a lot of money his way.................just because of his name and the casual bettor............Quip was one of my tosses...

    I agree. I do like that Combatant got in because I have him in future pool 2 at 72-1.

    I bet a few more than usual on future plays this year hopefully it will pay off. Also got Mendelssohn at 31-1 in pool 1, which I thought was a big gamble when I bet it but looks good now. Just wish I had made the same gambles in pools 2 and 3 when he was 44-1 and 28-1.
