Instead of starting the official countdown mere moments before the clock strikes midnight, this year, our nation’s countdown to the New Year started long ago.
Everyone is more than ready to put 2020 in the rear view. Never before have we collectively been so eager to turn the page on a year that felt like its own decade. Even though everything in the world will not be magically better on January 1, there is something inside us that psychologically will benefit from no longer seeing 2020 on the calendar.
But before we get to 2021, we are now beginning a holiday season like no other. One where people are being encouraged not to travel, to stay away from extended families, and to distance socially from the rest of the world. As turkeys that feed 2-4 instead of 8-15 fly off the shelves, I thought in this space, instead of focusing on the gloom and doom of 2020, we should take a moment to think about what we are thankful for.
More than ever, I am thankful for my health and the health of those close to me. Seeing how so many have suffered and lost loved ones certainly reminds us how precious life is. I am thankful for my friends, my family, my partner in crime Kelly, and my dog Louie. I am thankful that I have so many fond memories of my parents that I can harken back to in those moments when the thought of missing them becomes a bit too much.
I am grateful for my team at KrackWins and for all of KrackWins Nation that has sustained us over the past year. And yes, I’m thankful for sports and the joy it brings us, win or lose. I think that someday, hopefully in the not too distant future, we will look back on 2020 with a badge of honor knowing that we stayed together, we persevered, and we came out stronger as a country on the other side.
Sports Betting News and Picks Recap
Now let’s dig into my sports betting picks recap from this past week. I am happy to recap another winning week in the books for KrackWins. College football has started to heat up, going 5-2 (+5.25 units) while NFL went 6-6 (+.1 unit) for an overall week of 11-8 (+5.35 units). I hope everyone is ready to take it up several notches as college basketball tips off on Thanksgiving Day. The board will be full so remember to stick with the plan, follow the money management guide, and practice patience as the bankroll continues its climb.
Whether you are with family in person, via Zoom, or simply in spirit, I am wishing you and yours a safe and joyous holiday. Happy Turkey Day everyone.
