Every week, I post a recap blog to keep a running total on how our bets are doing. Dom just picked up on my inability to add/subtract small numbers.
Back in week 3, we placed 2 bets and had 2 units on each. We lost both. That clearly means we lost 4 units, but I marked us down as only losing 2. From weeks 3 to 9, this means that I had us 2 units ahead of where we were. I've gone into each recap blog and made that correction, so all are now accurate. I write this to A) make fun of myself and B) we pride ourselves on transparency at First and Thirty. Fudging numbers to make your record look better is commonplace in the handicapping industry, so when I make a mistake that does the same for us, I want to be up front about it. My apologies for the error, but at least it was Dom who caught it, rather than a reader. See you on the betting streets.
