Rockets run comes to an end, a great idea (not mine) and three shame bells of the week including a famous murderer, a public masturbator and…well, me: The update for Dec. 21

The Rockets winning streak came to an end last night when they collapsed late and lost to the San Antonio Spurs 102-100.

While it is shame day on the site, there is no shame in that. The Spurs are one of the best teams in basketball. Yes, if you are going to be a serious contender, you need to win games like this. But the reality is right now the Rockets are showing they can hang in there with the best.

The winning streak was a fun ride, and the Rockets are going to have more as the season goes on. They have done a good job of closing out games late during this run, and it did not happen last night. It will again.

No shame at all.

Also no shame: A great idea from Lamont Mann on a Hip Hop Hall of Fame. It should be based in Houston. Make it happen, people.

However, plenty of shame to go around this week, starting with this guy…


Thanks, Memphis.

That sucked: So our biggest play of the bowl season so far bit us squarely in the ass. That is the danger with bowls; sometimes a team just does not show up. That’s what happened last night. No excuses. At least I got to block about 10 people on Twitter who enjoyed mocking me. (Note to people who like to do that: You get one shot at it, so make sure you make it count). I would make the same bet tomorrow. As Matt Dean always says, decisions not outcomes. This outcome did not work out. Back to even on the bowls. In the words of Glenn Davis, I have to f—ing regroup.

Regardless, Shame bell No. 1.


Jack of no trades? OK, so I was awful, but nothing like the now-infamous San Diego Chargers security masturbator.

He has reportedly been fired. This is one sick dude. And judging from the short strokes, one small dude as well.

Regardless, Shame bell No. 2


Shoot to kill: Remember Aaron Hernandez? Former NFL star who is now a sex toy for Boggs and the Sisters in prison? He apparently killed two more people before going to prison. He is a terrible person who deserves to be violated as often as possible.

Shame bell No. 3.



In honor of that beatdown we took:

“The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart.”

  1. Hey Fred I appreciate you sharing your sports betting insights with us. It’s not something you have to do and, frankly, not something I would do in your position. When you lose the losers will throw it in your face and when you win they are nowhere to be found. As someone who has profited from your advice in the past I just wanted to stop by and say thanks for putting your thoughts out there.


  2. Regarding the Memphis pick and the trolls that went after you, at the end of the day, a smart bettor would look at your advice or your picks and only play them when they get that “oh yeah, I was thinking that same way and agree with that” feeling based on their own research. First, if they’re just using someone’s picks without their own research, they’re just dumb. Second, if it is someone like me who does my own research and then uses your suggestions as supplemental, it’s still ultimately on me as the person punching the ticket. Sounds like you had to deal with some ignorant, immature people.

    I too picked Memphis. There was logic behind it (and numbers), but that’s why it is called “gambling”. F the haters, Fred. Keep up the good work.


  4. Great article as always, Fred. Keep posting.
