When a game starts with the first snap going over the quarterback's head, into the end zone, resulting in a safety being scored by the defense, you know immediately that anything you predicted concerning that game is in danger.
My betting advice, given last time we were here, was dead wrong. It happens. The Denver Broncos played one of the worst games I've ever witnessed in the Super Bowl. Seattle kicked their asses from pillar to post. My performance - my prediction concerning a close game - was as putrid as anything the Broncos did.
Final tally for the day was minus $550.
The good news (or the bad news, since it means I'll be back next year with more advice) is that, for the four years I've been giving betting advice on the Super Bowl, we're still ahead $555.
Four Years, Total Risk - $8,710
Return = +6.37%
Yesterday's travesty was just one of those things that will eventually happen to every investor. Nobody gets it right every time. I hope nobody was hurt too badly. If I don't make it up to you next year, you'll have every right to hunt me down and shoot me full of as many holes as Denver displayed in the game.
Soon, with something that probably won't cost you anything.
