Record thus far: 19-21-2

Daddy�s really been takin� it on the chin lately, going 1-2 on both of my last two nights of picks. That�s how a slightly winning record becomes an embarrassingly losing record, and to quote a great MTV advertisement from a few months back, I deserved to be punched �right in my assey-face.� I�m trying my hardest to end January �...

Record thus far: 18-19-2

Daddy is ready for January to end. With a new month comes a new beginning � or just a continuation of the abuse my pride has taken since this column�s inception. Be that as it may, I�m pretty excited for the Super Bowl on Sunday. I�ll try to make good picks until then, when I, along with the rest of the betting world, will gamble way...

Record thus far: 17-17-2

Daddy�s tired from working all week, and since it�s Friday he�s too drunk to type up long explanations and insight. Here are the picks � boom, baby!

1) Denver Nuggets at Utah Jazz OVER 217 points

2) Miami Heat �3.5 at New York Knicks

3) Phoenix Suns �12 at Milwaukee Bucks

Please bet responsibly, although I...

Record thus far: 16-15-2

Perhaps self-deprecation and limited explanation are the keys to success. After I spent a paragraph bitching about myself and then avoided providing any real reason as to why you should trust my bets, Daddy went 3-0 last night! And since I�m now going head-to-head against Casey McIntyre and her Mama Needs a New Purse column, please realize...

Record thus far: 13-15-2

Alright everybody, the jig is up. I know I had you all fooled with my occasional, over-achieving nights of 2-1 predictions, but after my second 0-3 performance in this column�s brief two-week history, I must come clean: I am not a professional gambling tout. I know a lot about sports, but apparently not enough about statistics to...

Record thus far: 13-12-2

In an attempt to save face and protect a winning record, Daddy laid off the bets this weekend. After crying myself to sleep last night realizing either Peyton Manning or the Chicago Bears, both of whom I dislike, will win a Super Bowl, I woke up refreshed and ready to bet. In honor of Carmelo Anthony rejoining my Denver Nuggets after a 15-game...

Record thus far: 11-11-2 (NHL: 4-1; NBA: 5-6-1; NFL: 2-1-1; NCAA BB: 0-3)

Daddy apologizes for not posting last night, but I was busy harnessing all of my energy into praying that Brad would win the �Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Duel� finals. Unfortunately, Brad lost and I once again feel as though God doesn�t care. Oh well, back to sports talk. On Jan....

Ouch, Daddy bent over and took it without Vaseline last night, going 0-3! In an attempt to comfort myself - since I couldn�t sleep - I started digging through some old pictures and notebooks in my room, and I stumbled across a college notebook from my history of Western philosophy class. I...

Daddy advises all of you to strike while the iron is hot. For the first time since this column�s inception, I did not lose a single game last night! (Sure, I pushed one, but that�s still not a loss, ya� smartass.) If gambling has taught me anything, it�s that my success probably won�t...

Wow, what an interesting weekend of football! I�m actually getting an erection thinking about the Colts/Patriots AFC championship, and much to the dismay of CL�s staff photographer Joeff Davis and operations editor Chante LaGon � both from Chicago � I hope the New Orleans Saints whoop the...

Yesterday I claimed that I would make a comeback with the football picks and I did just that, going 2-0 on the gridiron. Unfortunately I incorrectly picked the over/under on a hockey game for the first time, which left me 2-1 on the day and 6-6 so far. I admittedly had no real reason for taking the...

Daddy apologizes for a poor performance last night (and for speaking in the third person). After a humbling 1-2 record on Friday, I�m looking to bounce back in a big way with the inclusion of some pigskin playoff picks.

Whoo! Daddy made a comeback last night going 2-1 with my picks. That sets me at dead-even so far, and in Vegas a push is a win, so let�s go make that money, don�t let it make you (shout out to Ronnie, Diamond, Dolla' Bill and The Players Club). Anyhow, I�m feeling good about tonight, I must say. There�s lots of NBA action which left me...

OK, so I hit a bump in the road on my first day because Duke fucked me by losing to a team that they historically dominate, but whatever, moving on � There�s not much NBA action tonight, with only two games being played, but I like the lines that exist. For the third pick, I consulted our neighbors to the north and took a hockey game. On a...

OK, Bad Habits readers, today is the launch of a new daily blog on Bad Habits called Daddy Needs New Shoes. I am a gambling addict and a sports junkie, so naturally I bet on sports daily.
