I do it for the "Thrill of Victory" and the "Agony of defeat".

No, seriously I play for a hobby. It's cheaper than drinking, cheaper than smoking,and a heck of a lot cheaper than seeing a "shrink"..!

    "No one will like you"...ole great beard man you really don't need to binge drink to have this affect on people...

    I know, I think a lot of people are overly fussy about the hygiene thing and strong odors.

          I play in hopes of winning enough money to finance construction of a fence along our northern border.

          When I say "northern border" I am referring to, of course, Tennessee's northern border with Kentucky.

          We need a fence there and we need it now.

          The Fence along Tennessee's Northern Border Is To: Keep the Tennessean's In: Not Keep the Kentuckian's Out! LOL

                  I play because it's entertaining.  Where else can you spent a few dollars being entertained and if you get lucky end up being a millionaire?

                    It's a last resort for me.  I can't get a job because I suffer from severe anxiety, depression, and HFA.  Social Security won't do squat for me.  Money won't buy me happiness but it will allow me to grab some control on my life.
