I fucked up. I fucked up bad.

The Control Room parlay went 5-1 this week. I was the only loss. And I was not even fucking close. I had Las Vegas (-2.0) at New Orleans, and I think all the Raiders were physically stuck on Bourbon Street nursing their hangovers and only figuratively on the field.

Is it better that my bet wasn’t even close at all? 24-0 Las Vegas? Are you serious? What the hell happened?

I knew that this was a possibility when I went to bed Sunday night. My fiancé and I got back from dinner celebrating (yes I put that news in there to make people forget about me losing for a second) and we went straight to bed because frankly we are old farts and 9 PM is past our bed time. I woke up this morning and the first thing I checked was the score of the Sunday night game.

Buffalo 27. Green Bay 17.

Green Bay covers the 10.5 point spread.

I let out an audible, “fuck” as I am feeding my cat. He doesn’t feel any sympathy for me. He just wants his food. That selfish bastard.

The parlay went 5-1 this week. And I have the biggest L.

I peaked too soon with the Barstool Control Room Parlay. I hit my first three but now through eight weeks I am 4-4. Person 1 has one four in a row to get to .500, and persons 3 and 4 are streaking with five straight. They are sitting at 5-3, carrying to torch now that I held for the first seven weeks.

I am accountable. I screwed up. I must be better. All we need is one, and if I didn’t fuck up, we could have had one.

In full transparency, my second pick would have been Atlanta -4.5, so I would have lost with my second pick as well. You can argue then that my pick didn’t matter, or that I doubly fucked up.

I will be writing up a little blog on the control room parlay when it eventually comes to fruition later in the week. This week will hit. We can do it
