I like your story and hope things are well.
Let me introduce myself as one serious NHL'er. I noticed you seem to follow the other sports as well. I am here to tell you I am a what I like to call a "short term sports investor" simply because the NHL season isn't all year round!
Now since I have read some things you wrote, I would like to also help your investment causes.
A tip for you--> When I spot my NHL game I post it, I'm not like the others and just post every outcome, my stats are a true reflection of my success. As the season goes deeper, my picking gets extremely accurate! Sometime the obvious games are worth cashing in on!
If your interested on how I pick and choose and maybe how I grow my pool of investment...shoot me a line.
