In my early days in the online gaming industry, I worked the phones for a popular offshore betting shop that now goes by a different name. I was front line customer service, it’s how I got my foot in the door to what has somehow become a lasting ‘career’.
Most of the calls were mundane, but every now and then around the holidays you would get the guy calling from his bathroom to find out the scores (this was before smart phones). Maybe he was in the shower for added soundproofing, or out ‘having a smoke’. At the time I had pity on them, avoiding their families to gamble.
Of course, at the time, I didn’t have a family of my own. Now that I have a wife and three kids, I’ve come to realize…Not all heroes wear capes.
What better escape from the madness that is Thanksgiving; inlaws, parents, cleaning, cooking, cleaning, kids, cleaning….
“Sorry Honey, the boys are watching football” as all the women glare at the men before heading back in to the kitchen. This may come off as sexist but for many the holidays are a return to the simpler times, where you sat and bonded as men while using the game to avoid conversation with your wife’s sisters’ boyfriend.
But with so many games and some many obligations, how is a man to find the time to get those edges, thus covering the costs or doubling them, of what is sure to be an expensive weekend.
Many of you know, your beloved Sports Information Network is located in French Canada, where the people here celebrated “Thanksgiving” on Columbus Day like the upside-down folk that Canadians are. I was one of those people.
On this Thanksgiving Weekend, jump aboard the AG Tout for what is sure to be a doozy. I have no familial obligations apart from the usual ignoring them while sitting in my basement.
