Season Profit (including the vig): 34.72 Lundys

A bit of a setback last week, but I bet small since I wasn't confident in my picks so the damage was minimal. More importantly though, there was a bit of drama in Major League Baseball last night. As a Red Sox fan, it was a tough evening for me, as you can see from my Twitter feed:

DIE CARL CRAWFORD

CARL CRAWFORD CONFIRMED EMBEDDED RAYS DOUBLE AGENT

HOPEFULLY THEY LIGHT HIS DICK ON FIRE RT : All 13 levels of losing just rang Bill Simmons' doorbell.

HOCKEY SEASON STARTS NEXT WEEK THATS RIGHT DEFENDING CUP CHAMPION BRUINS YEAH I WENT THERE SUCK IT

ANYONE IN CAMBRIDGE MASSACHUSETTS IN POSSESSION OF DRUGS, YOUVE GOT A CUSTOMER RIGHT HERE

[I've deleted the tweet where I basically gave out my address. That one wasn't so smart.]

OH GREAT NOW THAT FUCKING DICKBAG CAN WRITE ANOTHER BOOK I HOPE HE DIES RT : I am so excited for Dan Shaughnessy's next column

Lost in the Red Sox choke is that walking genital wart Tony La Russa is going to be in the playoffs.

DRUGS ARE MY FRIEND
