If you have gambled on sports long enough, inevitably you have had some games that you were pretty lucky to cash in on. Like taking an under in a football game and the total was 43 and they scored 35 in the first half and somehow by the grace of god, maybe the wind pushed a couple FG attempts off target and/or teams kept turning the ball over after a long drives into the redzone. But somehow some kinda of way you were able to cash your ticket on that under when the clock hit 0:00. Those are great and its always nice to feel like you dodged a bullet.
However if you have wagered on sports long enough you have also fallen victim to the other side of that coin as well. In fact I think its safe to say you can probably remember your worst bad beat even more vividly than your luckiest victory. Where you were at, what you were doing and how in your head you were already spending the money you knew was "in the bag". You may even suffer from some sort of PTSD because of it to this day! AND you probably curse the name of the guy or the team that pulled the rug out from under you every time you hear the sound of their name.
Now I would like to say that I dont want to open any old wounds for anybody, but that would be a flat out lie! Because thats exactly what Im asking you guys to do. I want you to share some war stories and give us a peek at some of your worst scars. I would like you to share with the Pick Monitor Community the baddest beat you have ever had and please spare no details. Feel free to even share personal details in your story that tie into the situation as well. The juicier the better!!!
I would like to start collecting stories and memoirs to share with others and possibly turn this into something bigger like maybe a podcast or even a book. I believe that most people can relate more to shitty occurrences than good ones and sharing stories like this can help people realize that they we are not all doomed for failure, because shit happens to everyone. Plus it might be kind of therapeutic at the same time... Anyways if you have a good story please share
If you are hesitant to share because you feel that it could hurt someone or incriminate yourself, I totally understand you can also share via email. I will honor your confidentiality if you send your story to my email and we can figure out the best way to avoid getting anyone in trouble.
Lets hear what you got!
