Bankroll: $61.90

Last week: The less said, the better. We had an 8-1 finish third, we got an odds-on horse beat (as we hoped) but used the wrong winner and then, due to rushing to get the column done on time after returning from the Jug, we posted wrong numbers for our final play. That is inexcusable and I apologize. It makes no difference, because we lost anyhow, but it wonít happen again. Of course, if we donít cash this week, there may not be an ďagain.Ē

The fact is you quit harness racing because you couldn't make it as a handicapper and couldn't pick a winner in a 2 horse--horse race.

Dingaling.

Wasn't even going to jump into this kind of stuff.

But

Fact is Giss is maybe one of the classiest and nicest people Ive ever come in contact with in any capacity.
I am not sure on this but I bet he is doing the column for free.
Just supporting the sport.

And its not easy putting yourself out there.

Most (all?) of the forum trolls and tough guys would never ever do that.

3 cheers for the Giss.

The Giss could be a nice guy. What does that have to do with handicapping? Facts are facts & his sulking is embarrassing. Everyone suffers bad beats & tough losses. I have followed the column at times. His handicapping & betting strategy have been awful. Nice guy or not Smoking with the Giss has been a disaster.

You should be ashamed as you ( and the gang of troll tough guys) have ruined yet another forum.

Which will have/has 0 credibility.
Noticed threads wont get viewed or noticed etc etc.
Except by the trolls. But they don't care.
They are veterans at destroying credibility.

As I mark every topic read unless it directly affects me or someone I care about.

This is what you guys want?

I will never get it you seem to crave credibility or to matter.
But you destroy that for yourselves out of stupidity.

But you deserve what you get.
even if this will be removed as I destroy you internet clowns and you are taking pot shots at a good guy.

but I really don't care anymore. You have now given BTW as much cred as your beloved cesspool.

"and then, due to rushing to get the column done on time after returning from the Jug, we posted wrong numbers for our final play. That is inexcusable and I apologize. It makes no difference, because we lost anyhow, but it wonít happen again"'

Really Giss lovers? You like checking in to read a column and get inundated with excuses week after week?

I can already guess what's next

"Well, things would've been different if I bet the 5 like I would have liked. Instead, I put in the 6. Well, big mistake. The 5 ended up running third, and while I would have only bet to win, the super paid 700$. So, the lawsuit against keyboard manufacturer is in the works"

I like reading his articles that aren't related to his awful picks but this segment is pure joke.. Anyone who writes a column on handicapping obviously feels like an elite capper with wisdom to share but this is far from the case, I can link you to his picks, they really are some of the worst betting sttategies

Buddy it is way better off to not even peek at his posts.
He promised me via PM that he was gonna stop mentioning me and stop bashing.   Today alone I was told he mentioned me about 3 times, all of which were derogatory in nature.

I assure you, you will miss nothing of substance.

You are a million per cent right JJ---I get bashed in every post too by this guy
And to think I sent him the best Harness Racing Book ever written
Talk about gratitude

I look at his posts because its very disconcerting to see anybody act in such a manner. One can only think "breakdown" and nobody wants to see that. It's a harness racing forum. You would swear we are all on death row waiting to be executed.  dunno dunno dunno
