The consolation of gambling

The Diamondbacks swept the Cubs from the playoffs in three straight games. This is the morning after, the time when grim reality seems exactly as it is. I look at it this way though. Tottenham vs. Liverpool is being broadcast on my TV. I need Liverpool to win as part of a four team English Premier League parlay bet. The focus on the new game arrests the morbidity associated with remembering the Cubs’ terrible series.

One of the nice things about gambling is that it keeps you occupied with winning today and tomorrow rather than reflecting too much on past losses.
